I have a client who works remotely and currently has a P25 zero client. Scanned images take about 40 minutes per page (yes he let it go to see how long it would take).
I had Wyse send me one if their thin clients and it seems a tad better but it is not a viable solution.
Does anyone have a good setup that seems to work with PCoiP, a zero client and a decent scanner over the internet? I assume it is because his scanner is a little older and only has options to scan to jpeg and TIFF and the files are BIG.
I assume if I get a decent scanner that will scan black and white to pdf in a smaller file size it will work ok.
Desktop is Windows 7 x64.
I've used Fujitsu 6130z's and Kyocera MFP's (FS-3140 specifically) however this was across a local LAN. We have P25's as well however it's still slower than scanning on a PC and we do set DPI and color down to make the files smaller. The thin client sounds like a good idea, something with an embedded OS to act as a buffer before sending the file over the internet. For that matter a cheap PC with the view client installed might offer better performance.
Ok, I sent an email to Wyse to see if they have tried this. I can't believe no one has a solution to this. Seems like it would be a pretty common setup.
I am going to try one of these:
See if I can get it to work at a some what decent rate.
