Where is the Linux viewer?

I know that this isn't "officially" supported, but here's where I am with this:

My setup - Fedora 21 on Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga
What I've done:
- Install latest Wine
- Install Viewer.msi (works fine!)
- Connect to Remote computer, using IP address (works fine!)
- Everything works, but the toolbar at the top is hidden and remains hidden, can't send CTRL-ALT-DEL to unlock computer

- After that I searched and found the knowledgebase article above. I tried to follow the steps, but I couldn't install msxml in winetricks because I have a 64 bit wine system (default these days)
- Wiped my wine setup and restarted with a 32 bit wine prefix (see accepted answer here)
- Installed Viewer.msi on the 32 bit prefix after following the KB article
- Everything installs, but now there is issues connecting. I can log on to the remote computer, but when I try to enter full control, it just sticks a black screen saying "Connecting" (or something similar, can't remember). Also, I tried to change "Remote Settings" but it gave an error that our versions didn't match.
- Reverted to 64 bit install, still having issues. Everything works, except the toolbar

IP-Filtering Doesn't work for Internet-ID Connection?

There's an exception to that. If you host your own server, there's an IP filter option. I've never used it, but it'll do what you're looking for. You'll have to check it out.

From the manual:
The IP-Filtering facility in Gateway Mediation Server, when used, allows or denies connection to the GMS only from the specified IP address or IP address range/ranges. The filter applies to connections from both the Viewer and Host side.

Pre-Configured Viewer MSI

I'm using the automatic sync on the RU Server, I was just hoping to have a way to have the address book already set up, instead of having to create an address book and then sync it. That way I wouldn't have to go and touch every machine I want it installed on.
Thanks

Hi,
I'd like to know if it's possible to have a Viewer MSI install file, with connection to the Address Book hosted on our on site Remote Utilities Server (2.0) already in place, instead of having to manually configure it every time. Is this possible, or can this only be done with the Host MSI?

Thanks!
