Yes. Just like an X terminal. In fact, that's exactly what it
is...but with a lot of very nice "smarts" built in, like the smart
card-based session management and stuff like that.
They really are a great product...I wish Sun would push them more.
Everyone who has seen mine loves it as much as I do (even though it's
not even the current model) and wonders why they haven't seen more of
them out there.

The software is a free download from Sun. Let me know if you don't
find it; I'll dig it up for you.
