User ID for ncomputing environment

L0 Member

HI all,

My customer has ncomputing (thin client) environment and all servers are Ubuntu. They wanted to implement User-ID feature in this environment. As we do not have any User ID agent for Linux, how can we get user info? Can we use Captive portal, will that work per session?

Captive portal would be an option. Just make sure to adjust the time so they dont have to enter their info a bunch of times throughout the day.

Captive Portal or enforced GlobalProtect would both be a great way of doing something like this. I would personally lean more on the GlobalProtect method, however depending on the skill of your users that might not be something I would want to deal with since the linux GP agent isn't all that refined at the moment. 

Hi, I also though of Captive portal as solution, how ever from Ubuntu server for every session (Ip address being the same) will Captive portal ask for authentication?
