Thinlinc listen address

Hi guys,

First of all, great software, I’ve been using it for some while now without any real issues.

I’ve dug into the documentation and underlying code that comprises Thinlinc, but I can’t seem to identify any configuration that relates to the listen address; by default Thinlinc (webaccess at least) listens on and I’m wondering if there’s a way to configure it to listen on so it makes reverse proxying (e.g., nginx) easier without a firewall.


Hello @penguin2020

No, it’s not possible to configure webaccess to bind to anything other than

Kind regards,

Hi @martin,

Thanks for replying to my question. I know it’s besides the scope of the question, but is there any technical reasoning for this? I know that instead of webaccess I can just use any of the deskop clients and have a thinlinc session via ssh which is quite secure, but I’m just curious since I really enjoy the HTML5 client.



The reasoning behind not having it configurable is that it introduces unnecessary complexity. From an administrative perspective, it’s best configured with firewall policies.
