Client EG to Linux box

If SAS is installed in a Linux box, can client EG be installed in PC Windows to access SAS in Linux?

The EG client can only be installed to Windows, and it can operate with a remote server of any flavor

What you're describing is probably the most common way to use Enterprise Guide. It works very well in this mode.

When SAS is running on Linux or any server and:

- having the SAS objectspawner running supporting for start Workspace sessions (that is a running sas.exe)

Than, having SAS Eguide installed on Window (Eguide is a .Net application) you can run.

- sas-processes on the linux

- using some windows features interfaces on your desktop

This is the client/server model.

On both sides some processing can be done.

The technical installation and requiements can be more demanding to do.
