Using a Raspberry Pi 4 as a client to access Windows 10 VM

Hi,

 

I have a spare Pi4 knocking around and got thinking about using it to access a Windows 10VM on unRAID? 

 

Does anyone do this? is it viable?

 

Thanks!

You can also use the VNC client included as standard to access the VNC interface to VMs without the need to install special software inside the VM.     Having said that RDP (or an equivalent) is likely to give snappier graphics performance.

There is no mention on that link that they have updated the image to support the RPi 4 (although it may well be coming).

I've been looking into this too; I think I'm going to try: https://www.masterkenneth.com/2018/07/raspberry-pi-thin-client/

Been looking to run a win10VM on Unraid and a east way for kids to remotely access it on the cheep lol
 

In the perhaps not unlikely event that the kids want to play games or watch Youtube be careful to check out the sound capabilities of any thin client software. Lots of thin clients including, I think, VNC, don't handle sound well, or at all.

Yeah actually been thinking about that. Have sound on a VM on Unraid working remotely using RDP so I think it's possible but I'm afraid it is probably going to prove to be a pain.

It might be worth trying out NoMachine as I see they have clients specifically for the Raspberry Pi and in my experience NoMachine gives better performance than Microsoft’s Remote Desktop.
