    Dear Gerardo,
    Thank you for your suggestion.
    What operation systems do you suggest?

    Hi there,

    I was not able to do automatic provisioning of Linux, but was able to access Linux machines (in an unsupported way) through RAS.
    Just install xrdp to a Linux machine, and then add the machine to Parallels RAS as a "Remote PC". Then, publish it in the same way you do with a Windows Remote PC.
    You will then be able to access it using Parallels Client, using Direct Access or Gateway.
    (I was also able to do a rudimentary Linux "Parallels RAS agent" that reports a fake version to the console; but this is totally optional)

    Even though you use "Remote PC", it will work as a terminal server, and allows multiple users to connect.

    Performance wise, it will be the same as a vanilla Linux XRDP setup.

    Regards
