Description Martin Östlund cendio 2022-10-19 14:03:33 CEST
UPDATE_URL in ThinLinc Client configuration points to our website, which might not be desirable for various reasons. 

One example could be due to DNS problems, which can lead to 
some clients stalling for a brief period of time, while waiting for timeout.
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman cendio 2022-10-25 12:47:29 CEST
To clarify, the issue is that we rely on our main web page to handle client updates. Currently, that isn't a problem in practice, but in the future we might have conflicting needs for our web page and client updates.

So to be proactive, let's change the URL to something that allows us to split things.
