I have Enterprise Guide up and running in a Workstation configuration, basically on my laptop.
What I would really like to do, is install the necessary EG components on a server (fast and powerful server), and then connect to it from my laptop running just the EG Client.
Is this difficult to do for a basic setup? I have searched through the documentation but I have just seen instructions on setting up EG from the Software Depot. Perhaps I need to look for specific terminology in order to navigate the documentation I need? This is nothing production and polished, this is more quick and dirty, for my own understanding. Basically single user so I have the mechanics of client/server working in a basic level.
Any help or direction would be appreciated! I would love to be able to use my laptop EG Client and connect to a more powerful machine on my LAN, especially when using some of the multi-core procedures.

In your case: " lap-top -> server " you need a server-process. There are many service processes on a server. The service you need is called a workspace-server.
The workspace-server will actually run a process something like your would have done a login on the machine (minor differences).
It is started for a service process, that one is the objectspawner. Some information is coming from a metadata-server that is the metadataserver.
It is difficult?
- no when you know what to do and have all access.
- yes if you are getting into troubles with license and server admins.

Thanks for the reply! I am very comfortable with Redhat, so I will take a stab at following the Redhat SAS installation. I see I have to install a spawner and metadata server as well so I will look for the documentation on those components.
