If you install the SAGE2 server and the displays on separate machines, your display machines might not have access to the SAGE2 folder. To remedy this problem, we offer a display installer for Windows, macOS, and various Linux distributions. This display client also is needed if you use SAGE2Cloud on a central server.

These links points to the each latest versions:
