The server has to run, but there is no need to open a user connection on
You can log on a thin client with any user who has "sudo" rights, (ie
who belongs to the "admin" group) and then perform administration task :
- monitor users,
- add printers...
you can even turn the server off by typing "sudo halt" in a terminal
(correct me if I'm wrong) or using "webmin".
You just need a monitor on the server if client booting goes wrong.
