So, maybe there's some misunderstanding, here, about how Guacamole works.
Guacamole is designed specifically for this type of scenario, and is
designed to do it without any software other than a web browser on the
client system.  The Guacamole Server (guacd) does the translation between
the Guacamole Client and the remote desktop instances.  Guacamole Client
does not get installed on the roaming client machines, it gets installed on
a Tomcat server that then translates between HTTP(S) and the Guacamole
Protocol, communicating with guacd.  This actually works very well for the
situation you mention, because you can set up that Guacamole Client system
in a central location and have it facilitate the connections to the remote

Hopefully this helps, let me know if you have any further questions.
