IS IT POSSIBLE TO SETUP IBM THIN CLIENT 8363 SETUP ON Windows 2003 SERVER?

I have an IBM NETVISTA 8363 Network Station and instead of buying another computer I want to setup up a terminal to do some mild data entry in another room. I have a windows 2003 terminal server running for remote desktop clients already. Is this possible? And how do I do it? Is there some instructions out there somewhere?

How do I know if it has a RPD client and is there a resource online to set this terminal up?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

Ok It is very hard ti find information about thuis product. Seems like it is compatible with RDP.
What is the current OS installed on the machine?

OK, it is not RDP embedded. BUT,
you can install linux on it and use linux rdp client...

that's as far as we can get.
or, buy new thin clients compatible with rdp, they cost about 120 dollars each, 45 dollars second hand.

I would test the 2X ThinClient Server, PXES Edition (free). Works on pretty much any x86 hardware regardless of being a real PC or thin client terminal. All you need probably is to check if this device supports PXE boot.
Check them at http://www.2x.com.

Can it boot off a CD or USB stick? If it can, the PXES will still work.

I will check what os it has on it. I am out of town sorry for the delay. I will be back next week. I hope that is still okay. It might be cheaper to just buy the new ones then all the time I am wasting though.
