Is it possible to connect using internet connection since it's main pc in different location.

sure,

1. method - (easy - free) - setup dyndns, open port on your router, install openvpn, generate profile, setup vpn client on thin client and load the profile and connect

2. method - (easy ) rent a vserver on a cloud provider (sometimes they offer vpn servers), set up vpn, and connect both devices to the vpn, then you can connect to either device from one another

3. simple shitty method, open port on your host network, setup ssh on windows, accept only via key, connect the thin client via tunnel ssh -L, and forward the vnc port to a local port on the thin client and use it top connect per vnc. Ah ofc you need to have vnc on your windows

all above are just rough description of the methods, they are more complicated in detail, so watch a guide or read a tutorial or smth

or you could some software like teamviewer

What model of think client?

Id just get a basic windows/linux pc and run something like parsec, but it won't have the same experience as having the pc locally.

I havent really understood the question:

Do you want to connect to your main pc via thin client to do stuff on it ?

If its the case then:

  • has your main pc got windows installed or linux?
  • Do you have to use the Desktop interface ?
    • Are you fine with working over vnc ? Definetly not for gaming !

Or do you want to just run stuff on your main pc, and use the thin client just for ssh

If so, then sure why not.

Im using thin clients at all of my houses to connect to my servers, if I ever have to

Yes You're right I want to connect to my Main pc via thin client to do stuff but remotely. But different location. Can I use Main PC which is on home & my thin client on my office. Is it possible to connect using internet connection since it's main pc in different location.

Main PC have windows 10聽聽

What os does the think client run? That seems like just a low end pc to me.

Id probalby run linux on the thin client with something like parsec on here.

speed is ok, but id probably would edit video over it if you don't have to. Just less responsive, and a bit more latency.
