Tiling with Thinset to Greenboard


OK the Greenboard is in the bathroom and in the actual shower area is cement board just to claify. My question is can I use Thinset to adhere the tile to the Greenboard in the bathroom area? (NOT SHOWER) or should I go with a mastic/adhesive ?

I would put a couple of coats of oil based primer on first but sure, thinset or mastic will work. Just not in the shower area as you pointed out.
