It is possible to pxe boot a diskless client to a minized linux image that can then run a remote protocol like rdp, vnc, ica in order for the client to be able to access the virtual machine. The client has to utilize some sort of remote client to actually connect to the virtual machine itself.

I used small linux os that could be installed on the client hard drive or pxe booted.  I was then able to connect via pcoip or rdp to the virtual machine. Thanks for the help.
