  • centralized access for employees who are working at customers' site, home or on business trips

  • provide access to windows applications from PDA


Setup and registration could not have been easier.

The clients are ecstatic with the software. We removed 4 computers from their residence and replaced them with one DELL 3 gigahertz computer and 3 televideo thin client terminals!!! One of the thin client terminals is hooked to a Pioneer Elite widescreen TV. Setup and registration could not have been easier. Thanks once again.

Well worth the cost!

I am using WinConnect Z to connect to both my workstation at the office and to my workstation at home. I use a combination of 802.11 wireless (home and office) and connect through my cell phone when I'm not at either place. It gives me full access to my machine to monitor analysis that I have running. It's much faster and works much better than the VNC client for the Zaurus...well worth the cost!

ThinSoft Inc. takes up Microsoft's original idea, but adds considerably more value to it

With the WinConnect XP Server product, ThinSoft Inc. takes up Microsoft's original idea, but adds considerably more value to it: It extends the existing Remote-Desktop to allow concurrent sessions for up to 21 people on a single system. So, in fact the software transforms a Desktop System into a small Terminal Server. They achieve this feat not only for XP Professional, but also for the Home Edition...

A viable option for small offices on a budget.

WinConnect Server XP makes thin client computing a viable option for small offices on a budget.

PC Magazine, April 8, 2003 issue



I will certainly recommend this as a solution for accessing out Windows-platform.

Working with a diverse, small business clientele base in Chicago has demanded cost-effective and reliable solutions. WinConnect Server XP is simple to implement and immediately produces cost-saving results, which realizes a reduction in TCO within minutes of installation. For companies looking for an effective, easy-to-manage, out of the box solution, WinConnect Server XP is the answer. WinConnect Server XP rivals that of its more widely adopted terminal emulation application competitors in the enterprise arena for only a fraction of the cost. WinConnect Server XP is a technology necessity in my practice!

WinConnect Server XP saved us a lot of headaches and money!

We use a software package that manages all aspects of the physical security of our building. The package manages security cameras, security badges, access points, access times and employee security levels. As you can imagine, it is an expensive piece of software. When the CEO, HR Director and Facilities manager all came looking for access to the data contained on this machine without having to physically be at it, we faced a problem. The security solution provider would need proprietary cabling to each and every one of their workstations as well as $5000.00 a piece for extra software. WinConnect to the rescue!

By utilizing WinConnect on the existing security machine, we are able to provide access to all the same information without cabling, extra software or taking the risk of conflicting with other software on their machine. They now just use a remote desktop connection to access the data and dont interrupt us while doing so! No complex install, no $15,000 more on software and no worries about supporting multiple installs of a complex software package.

We have since started to utilize WinConnect for remote access to the machine. No more unnecessary trips to the office.

WinConnect installed easily with no hassles and has rock solid stability.

I highly recommend this product to anyone needing to provide extended Terminal Services on a Windows XP platform!

WinConnect Server XP has provided a stable platform for our employees to connect with our business software.

WinConnect Server XP has provided a stable platform for our employees to connect with our business software. It was easy to install: provides easy custom connection configuration tools: and, works quietly in the background. We have both Windows XP Pro and Windows 2000 Pro clients and both connect equally well.

The cheapest way to set up a light Terminal Server solution with a Windows XP interface

With WinConnect Server XP, we can offer customers a cost-effective Remote Desktop solution supporting multiple users with the well known Windows XP interface. The set up takes less than 3 hours to complete.

I really liked the performance of the product and my prospects really like the price.

I believe your products will fit very well with our product offerings to our customers.

WinConnect Server XP made the impossible possible for us.

We had troubles running a travel expense software on pc´'s setup in Japanese in our company. After countless trials and unicode setting changes we were about to give up. A hardware terminal server would have been too costly. Then, by chance we discovered what WinConnect Server XP could offer to us for a moderate price. We tested it a few days and realized we could run the software on Japanese Windows very conveniently and our problems were gone. All our thanks to ThinSoft for developing this piece of software.

Your software is great.

There are no questions to implement. It's very easy to use (for a MSCE-certified user)

Dipl.-Ing. Michael Kretschmer
Ingenieürbro Hauer (Germany)



The software was very easy to implement, install and use without much technical knowledge.

Had it installed in a matter of minutes, with ease. Thought of acquiring a terminal server, but WinConnect Server XP proved a cost effective and reliable solution.

Started with 8 user license and now moving to 13 user license. Will definitely be acquiring more licenses.

Without a doubt better than the citrix solution also. Would rate this software five stars!

I have now tested WinConnect on Sparc/Solaris and Intel/Redhat platform.

Both directly connected to the same LAN, and tunneled through ssh from my homeoffice, and I'm impressed! I will certainly recommend this as a solution for accessing out Windows-platform. Compared to rdesktop, the freeware version, this is very much better, both functionality and performance.

I recommend it to everyone I talk to

Our first reaction: Amazing! Stunning! Excellent! We have found the BeTwin systems to be very user friendly and the systems support is remarkable.

Great product that is easy to install and turns the humble XP PC into so much more.

I have recommended WinConnectXP to several organisations over the last 3 years. That's because it is a great product that is easy to install and turns the humble XP PC into so much more. It has been perfect for our small business where our staff are 1,000 kms apart. Thanks ThinSoft!

Just works! : Very cost effective Remote Terminal product for Small Business on a budget and very good after sales service.

I have a customer running Small Business Server and they were at a loss of what to do with Remote Access Terminal Services as they had a staff on maternity leave wanting to run Database applications from her home VPN.

I found WinConnect XP to be the only product that was up to it and cost effective enough.

Installation was easy and within 30 minutes I had the thing running.... though I did first spend some time to trial it on a virtual machine test lab before I did it for real.

WCS - Great for small projects/test environments.

Well we decided to use this in our training lab. Before we had ancient PCs (400MHz 256MB RAM Win2000) and management refused to allow us to upgrade them because of budget restraints. I found your software and decided we could try moving to ThinClients and a single “modern” XP machine. We purchased six HP t5135 Thin Clients (about $200 each); then upgraded the RAM in our “host” computer to 2GB and connected it to a projector. It has been great since the day we started. I only have to touch the host computer if we have a Windows update that we push out and I have to upgrade WCSxp to support it and we don’t have to worry about a trainee potentially crashing our big servers because they are on this isolated environment. I just make an image of the host every few months so we can restore it if disaster does strike. It’s great software and would be a great way for small business’ to afford more workstations by using either older/slower computers and RDP clients (ie running Linux) or just use ThinClients like we did. 

It would also be great or for small projects/test environments like what we used it for. Thanks for selling it and keeping it up to date!

The setup and config was seemingly too easy!

Have to say it’s impressive so far. I have two people out of the office, remoting back in to the office using it via the Small Business Server 2008 remote web work place. The setup and config was seemingly too easy!

Fantastic product that fills a void for SMBs that cannot justify the expense.

Fantastic product that fills a void for SMBs that cannot justify the expense and overheads of a monolithic terminal server solution. In the 4 years of using Winconnect Server XP, it has proved to be a solid and reliable remote access solution for staff at my wife's accounting firm. The product has negligible resource requirements itself. The product has saved money by turning a PC used by part time staff in the office into a terminal server. This has saved having to buy extra hardware. Great tool!!

WinConnect Server XP/VS is not only a cost effective solution

WinConnect Server XP/VS is not only a cost effective solution, but has actually replaced the standard Windows 2003/2008 Terminal Server option in many cases for us. Certain programs only run on a desktop OS such as Windows XP Professional or Windows Vista Business Edition, so without WinConnect, we wouldn’t be able to utilize these programs for multiple users over a remote connection.

The software has been extremely reliable and fail safe.

The software has been extremely reliable and fail safe. It saves me a lot of money by enabling me to use older computers as workstations instead of throwing them in the trash. I use the program to extend the life of my existing hardware by several years. It has paid for itself many times over and I expect that it will continue to do so.

This solution has been the most useful and stable and very easy to deploy on Mac or PC

We at Bos are working mostly on Mac platform as most Advertising Agencies do,
but some of our departments, such as Media Placement, must use universal standard PC software to purchase media.

Instead of having a whole new set of PC-Windows for each individuals and doubling our maintenance workload ; we have about a dozen Windows-base PCs to accommodate groups up to 6 people to a single highly specialized PC running Thinsoft WinConnect Server XP ( Windows XP ) or WinConnect Server VX ( Windows 7 ).

In some cases ; we just use them to provide testing platform for developers which is far more reliable than to use a Windows simulation ( PC Anywere / Parallel / ect. )

The most complex setup we have is 4 Windows-PCs ( in Montreal ) running database intensive processes reserved exclusively for our office in Toronto : Up to 6 people at a time connect to these PCs Remotely through a VPN to get their jobs done and it works like a charm!  We had tried various other solutions to get this working to our satisfaction but this was the best method deployed so far!

I have to say ; this solution has been the most useful and stable and very easy to deploy on Mac or PC.

It is a product that we can have up and running in less than 30 minutes, works reliably and does everything for our credibility.

We have implemented the WinConnect XP Server product at several Small to Medium Business clients over the past couple of years, and it is one product that honestly lives up to its claims. Having been in the ICT industry for 27+ years, you are naturally wary of products that appear to offer far better value and a better Return on Investment than the majority of competitive or main stream products, but the Thinsoft product has certainly removed those fears.

The other benefit is that it offers greater flexibility than the Microsoft product (Terminal Services) such as the ability to install this product directly on an SBS 2003 Server or if you are concerned with the load, installation on a Windows XP workstation with the appropriate memory and CPU is also possible.

Winconnect XP Server is a product I think of every time a client wants his sales force to access applications remotely or they want their staff to be able to work from home. It is a product that we can have up and running in less than 30 minutes, works reliably and does everything for our credibility

BeTwin : allow multiple pointing devices on the single system with multiple displays

We had been looking at ways of having multiple pointing devices on a dual
screen desktop arrangement until we found BeTwin. BeTwin allowed us to
develop our product with a much simpler configuration that allowed multiple
pointing devices on the single system with multiple displays.

Using WinConnect XP was and still is the only solution we could find without having to install and support a separate Terminal Server which would have been at a much greater cost.

We are an IT Support company working with many small to medium businesses.  We’ve used WinConnect XP successfully for many years now in several different environments on Microsoft Small Business Server 2003.

The main use has been for people working remotely that require access to a single or multiple local databases, as it’s never advisable to open a database connection over a VPN.

Using WinConnect XP was and still is the only solution we could find without having to install and support a separate Terminal Server which would have been at a much greater cost.

We found WinConnect XP was a light application to have running on the servers and have been very happy with the support.

We are currently upgrading some of the SBS003 Servers to SBS2008 and will remain using WinConnect products.

WCS-XP is a very nice way to get easy access to you own Domain from where ever you are

WinXP Server is a very nice way to get easy access to you own Domain from where ever you are.

As Long as you have an internet connection you can do well. I have a 5 user licence and this is enough for my company and the users that are not working at the office they can get their connections from any location as long as they have there Internet connection. It works all smoothly and easy.

Many thanks to your company for giving us this solution.

WinConnect Server XP has been well worth its purchasing price.

WinConnect Server XP has been well worth its purchasing price.  Being a small business with three owners/operators, it has given us the ability to all have access to the data that we need and still all be working on different machines.  It has been great.

Excellent Product WinConnect Server XP

Excellent Product. We are very happy. We have 2 churches in 2 cities, and 3 foodbank warehouses in 3 cities and a youth club. All are able to remote in to the XP Pro server. Your software saved us considerable money over investing in a larger server. That money goes into feeding elderly and disabled and helping underpriviledged youth. Thanks.

Efficient technical support

I just would like to say, the technical support after I bought win connect server vs. 64, was a lot more than I expected, when I buy software online, it usually ends up to be up to the end user to figure it out, but not in this case, the support I received was above and beyond what I have gotten from other software I have purchased for my clients, the email support was unbelievable, quick response, not days, but in hours I had an answer, Just wanted to say thanks, my client is very happy, not to mention my business can do other thing to make money, and not have to wait for days to get a response, which sometimes never comes. So thanks I will buy this software for other of my clients, knowing I will be supported by you.
