how-to-launch-jnlp-on-linux-with-icedtea-web.png


So what's JNLP anyway?
Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) is a protocol which enables an application to be launched on a client desktop by using resources that are hosted on a remote web server.

The standard way of accessing Server iLO/IPMI or ScreenConnect client for Linux is via JNLP file downloaded from the server console. So, we'd need to find a tool which will allow us to launch these file on our Linux Desktop.

Install On Debian / Ubuntu
Bash:
sudo apt -y install icedtea-netx
Install on CentOS
Bash:
sudo yum -y install icedtea-web
Install on Fedora
Bash:
sudo dnf -y install icedtea-web
Install on Arch / Manjaro
Bash:
sudo pacman -S icedtea-web
Execute JNLP file on Linux
After installation, you can execute a JNLP file using the command line:
Code:
$ javaws file.jnlp
An alternative way of executing a JNLP file by double-clicking on the file itself 😃
