With "connect directly to the agents", do you mean directly from the
ThinLinc client? This isn't intended to work, but I assume that this
agent is also running a separate master service.
In ThinLinc the master server is the license server. Since you are
connecting to a different master (which is running on the same machine
as your new agent) you will not be getting the licenses from your
You say that you can't use explicit_agentselection anymore since you
have a second agent? Multiple agents can be specified in that
parameter. See the documentation here:
We are aware that explicit_agentselection is very limited, the next
release of ThinLinc will include support for subclusters. See this
