Introduction
Wyse® WintermTM 1 series Thin Clients use Wyse Thin OS. These highly optimized thin
clients provide ultra-fast access to applications, files, and network resources made
available on machines hosting Citrix™ ICA and Microsoft™ RDP session services. Locally
installed software permits remote administration of the thin clients and provides local
maintenance functions.
Session and network services available on enterprise networks may be accessed through
a direct intranet connection, a dial-up server, or an ISP which provides access to the
Internet and thus permits the thin client to connect to an enterprise VPN (virtual private
network) server.

Getting Started
This chapter provides information to help you quickly get started using your thin client. It
describes basic thin client functions and provides instructions on using the Desktop and
Connect Manger to manage the connections and applications available for you to use.
What Happens When You Turn on Your Thin Client
What you see, initially, when you turn on or reboot your thin client, depends on your
method of access to the enterprise intranet and how your network administrator has set up
your account. With Wyse Thin OS software, your thin client can also be turned on by the
Wake-On-LAN feature. Using this feature, an administrator can turn on the thin client
connection by using a LAN message that the thin client recognizes on a single Ethernet
subnet.
Accessing the Enterprise Servers Available
There are five basic methods of access to the enterprise server environment available to
the thin client. Except for Ethernet Direct, all of the access methods require that some
local settings be made on the thin client. These settings cannot be automated because the
thin client has not yet accessed Global and User profiles. For certain privileges, these
local settings are retained and are available for the next thin client system start. Activating
these local settings and the defined connections can also be automated at thin client
system start.
Methods of access include:
•
Ethernet Direct - This is a connection from the thin client Ethernet port directly to the
enterprise intranet. No additional hardware is required. An account sign-on dialog box
displays if required, then either the desktop or an application window opens (the
application window opens, with or without a session server logon requirement, if set by
the administrator to open automatically). User profiles normally are used in this mode
and are accessed automatically. However, if the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCP) - a protocol for assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network - is
not available on the enterprise intranet, the location of the file server where user
profiles are located must be entered in the Network Setup dialog box. For information
on the Network Setup dialog box, refer to "Configuring Network Settings."
•
Wireless Direct - If a wireless network device is connected to the thin client but a
wireless connection has not yet been configured, the Wireless Setup dialog box opens.
When a connection is established, the behavior is the same as for an Ethernet Direct
connection, including automatic access to user profiles through DHCP. For information
on the Wireless Setup dialog box, refer to "Setting Up Wireless Access."
•
PPPoE - The PPPoE Manager dialog box is available from the desktop to configure
and invoke PPPoE connection to WAN. Once connected, all WAN packets go though a
PPP connection over Ethernet to the DSL modem. The PPPoE Manager is not
accessible for users with sign-on privilege set to None. Open the PPPoE Manager
4
Chapter 2
dialog box by selecting it from the desktop menu. This dialog box also can be set to
open automatically on system start-up. For information on the PPPoE Manager dialog
box, refer to "Configuring PPPoE Access."
•
Dialup Modem - If both the Dialup Manager and the Connect Manager open
automatically when the thin client is turned on or restarted, the thin client is configured
to access the network through a modem dial-up. A sign-on dialog box may appear
when the network connection is accomplished. DHCP cannot automatically connect
your thin client to User profiles when using dial-up access; the location of the FTP
server where the profiles reside must be entered in the Network Setup dialog box. For
information on the Dialup Manager dialog box, refer to "Configuring Dialup Modem
Access." For information on the Connect Manager, refer to "Using the Connect
Manager." For information on the Network Setup dialog box, refer to "Configuring
Network Settings."
•
PPTP VPN - The PPTP Manager dialog box can be configured to open automatically
when the thin client is turned on or restarted. This facilitates connection to an
enterprise network through an ISP, the Internet, and a virtual private network (VPN)
PPTP server. If dial-up is used to contact the ISP providing access to the Internet, the
Dialup Manager and Connect Manager also open. DHCP cannot automatically connect
your thin client to User profiles when using PPTP VPN access; the location of the FTP
server where the profiles reside must be entered in the Network Setup dialog box. For
information on the PPTP Manager dialog box, refer to "Configuring PPTP VPN
Access." For information on the Dialup Manager dialog box, refer to "Configuring
Dialup Modem Access." For information on the Connect Manager, refer to "Using the
Connect Manager." For information on the Network Setup dialog box, refer to
"Configuring Network Settings."
Note
If the Network Setup dialog box initially appears, or the Connect Manager is
active when the thin client is started (or when the enterprise intranet is
accessed), network services are not fully configured. In this case sign-on is
not required and thin client network settings (and possibly connection
definitions) must be entered locally on the thin client (for example, a
Stand-alone user). For more information, refer to “Using the Connect
Manager” and "Configuring Network Settings."
If the network to which the thin client is connected does not provide FTP
services, a User profile will not be available and network addresses and
connection definitions must be entered locally on the thin client. If User
profiles (and update services) are available from an FTP server but DHCP
does not supply the location of the FTP server, you can access the profiles
by entering the location of the FTP server locally on the thin client (refer to
“Configuring Network Settings” for more details).
Getting Started

Signing-on
After a connection to the enterprise intranet is established, sign-on to the network and/or
session services may or may not be required (depending on a Global profile option set by
the network administrator, the session servers, or any requirements of PNAgent/PNLite
services). If sign-on to the enterprise intranet is required, a sign-on dialog box opens when
you turn on the thin client, when you restart the thin client, or after signing off from a User
profile account.
Note
In a Virtual Desktop environment, user authentication is made against the
Virtual Desktop Broker. Therefore, you will only authenticate against the
Broker. You will sign-on as described in this section only when a Virtual
Desktop environment is not used or is unavailable.
Sign-on name and password are assigned initially by the administrator when the account
is established, but the password can be changed by the user at a thin client in some cases
(see "Changing Your Password"). To sign on to a standard account, enter the user name
for the account and password allocated to you by the network administrator. Account user
names are not case sensitive, however, passwords are case sensitive.
Note
If you cannot successfully sign-on, ask your network administrator for help.
If a user account is not established but PNAgent/PNLite-published applications are to be
accessed on the PNAgent/PNLite server, you must enter the user name for the account
and password (in this case, account user names are not case sensitive, but passwords
are case sensitive) and also select a Domain in which the applications appears (if the
correct domain does not appear in the list, type it into the Domain box).
Note
Applications can be published to the network by PNAgent/PNLite services.
These applications are available to the thin clients on the network as long as
accounts are established on the PNAgent/PNLite server. If User profiles are
used, the thin client will send the enterprise server sign-on and domain
information to the PNAgent/PNLite server for log-on. If User profiles are not
used (a sign-on is not required to access User profiles) but a PNAgent/
PNLite server address is entered into the Network Setup dialog box, the
sign-on dialog box with the PNAgent/PNLite Domain box will still be
presented to you for access to the published applications. PNAgent/
PNLite-published applications will be merged with connections defined
through user profiles and local settings for a combined total number of
connections. The maximum number of connections has a default limit of 216,
but can be set from 100 to 1000 through wnos.ini.
Changing Your Password
If you are required to sign on and you are not using PNAgent/PNLite services or a Virtual
Desktop environment, you can change your assigned password by selecting Check here
to change password in the sign-on dialog box and using the change password dialog
box (type the new password in both the New Password and Confirm boxes, and click OK).
6
Chapter 2
Note
If you are using both PNAgent/PNLite and a User profile, the user name must
be defined in the Windows domain to be used and the password must be the
same for both the domain and the User profile.
In a Virtual Desktop environment, user authentication is made against the
Virtual Desktop Broker (the user name and password are stored on the
Broker or a third party authentication server). Therefore, the password must
be changed on the Broker or the authentication server.
If you are required to sign on and are using PNAgent/PNLite services (so that the user
profile password is forwarded to the PNAgent/PNLite server), you can have an application
change your domain password but you cannot change your ini file password while using
PNAgent/PNLite. Therefore, if you change the domain password, you will lose the effect of
any directives in the user ini file, including any potential upgrade of privilege (for example,
the privileges in the wnos.ini file may be set to None, but the privileges in the user ini file
are set to High).
Understanding Your User Profile
Profiles for users contain the settings and connection definitions for the thin client. They
are created and maintained by the network administrator and reside on the enterprise
intranet FTP server or Virtual Desktop server. The thin client accesses these user profiles
when you sign on. The location of these files may be automatically supplied to the thin
client by the DHCP server (if set up by the network administrator), or if DHCP is not
available, their location must be entered in the Network Setup dialog box.
Note
The Global profile (wnos.ini) and User profile (user.ini) on an FTP server can
take effect only when a Virtual Desktop environment is not used.
Types of user profiles include:
•
Global - All clients of the same FTP server have these profile settings.
•
User - Only the individual user has these profile settings. Settings in User profiles can
override corresponding Global profile settings.
Note
If you want to change your user profile, ask your network administrator.
In a Virtual Desktop environment, the user profile is set in the user policy.
Therefore, different users with the same policy will have the same user
profile.
You have the same user profile, regardless of which thin client you use. If allowed by the
network administrator, a limited number of settings are available locally. For instructions
on selecting local operator preferences such as display, keyboard, mouse, and printer
selections, refer to "Setting Up the Thin Client."
Note
If the network to which the thin client is connected does not provide FTP or
Virtual Desktop services, a user profile will not be available and network
addresses and connection definitions must be entered locally on the thin
client. If user profiles are available from an FTP or Virtual Desktop server but
DHCP does not supply the location of the server, you can access the user
profiles by entering the location of the FTP or Virtual Desktop server locally
at the thin client (refer to "Configuring Network Settings" for more details).
Getting Started

Knowing Your Assigned Privileges and User Mode
As a thin client operator, you have a thin client account with certain privileges. Your thin
client account is a set of application connection definitions and thin client configuration
settings that are grouped under a privilege level and assigned to you by your
administrator. Administrators create thin client accounts that possess specific connection
capabilities, security, and various thin client functions. Assigned privileges and user
modes allow you certain levels of access to thin client resources.
Note
User access to system-reset-to-factory defaults and the Network Setup
dialog box can be denied by the user privilege (not the lock-down state).
Therefore, if the thin client is locked down in High privilege, you will have
access to all facilities, regardless of other items (unless there is an
intervening privilege statement in an ini file). It is only when the thin client is
locked down in the privilege None that you cannot recover control of the thin
client. For more information about system lock-down, refer to "Understanding
System Lock-down."
Assigned Privileges
The user profiles (Global and User) can assign three privilege levels of access to thin
client resources: High-privileged, Low-privileged, and Non-privileged.
•
High-privileged - With High privilege, all thin client resources are available with no
restrictions. This is an administrative level of log-on. Connection definitions can be
entered locally on the thin client, but they will typically be lost upon log-off/shutdown of
the thin client. However, if configured by an administrator (enablelocal=yes),
locally-defined connection definitions can be saved. If you are a user at this level, you
can reset the device to factory defaults.
Note
High privilege is the default privilege (unless locked down in another
privilege) and is in effect if a user profile is read that does not contain a
privilege statement. If no wnos.ini file is read (same conditions), the
connection definitions entered locally on the thin client are persistent and
may even be visible if a wnos.ini file is found on a subsequent reboot (if an
enablelocal=yes statement is read from one of the ini files).
•
Low-privileged - This is the level assigned to a typical user of the thin client. The
Network and Wireless selection on the System Setup submenu is disabled (the
Network Setup dialog box and Wireless Setup dialog box cannot be opened). A
Low-privileged user cannot reset the device to factory defaults.
•
Non-privileged - This level of access is typical for kiosk or other restricted-use
deployment. The System Setup selection on the desktop menu is disabled (the various
dialog boxes available from the System Setup cannot be displayed). The Connect
Manager is not available. The user cannot reset the device to factory defaults. Both the
Dialup Manager and PPTP Manager dialog boxes are disabled.
Note
If you are accessing the enterprise intranet through Dial-up or PPTP VPN,
the Network Setup dialog box is available during the dial-up process to
establish the initial connection to the FTP server. If you then log on as a
Low-privileged or Non-privileged user, however, access to the Network
Setup dialog box is then disabled. The Dialup Manager and PPTP Manager
dialog boxes are also disabled for a Non-privileged user.
8
Chapter 2
User Modes
User Modes define your login state and include the following types of user:
•
Guest user - The Guest user mode logs on using the Global profile only (no User
profile is available) and does not need a password. But the Guest user will be disabled
if no connection is defined in the Global profile. The Guest user cannot access the
Network Setup dialog box and cannot reset the device to factory defaults. Otherwise,
all remaining local resources are available. Although an enterprise file services
account password is not required, individual application servers may require a
password.
•
Stand-alone user - This mode makes operation of the thin client possible when user
profiles or PNAgent/PNLite-published applications are not available. No user log-on is
required and network information and connection definitions must be defined locally on
the thin client. Locally entered connection definitions are preserved when the thin client
is turned off or restarted, but individual user accounts are not available and automatic
software updates are not available when the thin client is restarted.
Note
It is possible to have an FTP server which supplies software updates but no
.ini files. In this case, software updates would take place but the user would
still be Stand-alone.
•
PNAgent/PNLite-only user - This mode is similar to a Stand-alone user, except
applications published by Citrix PNAgent/PNLite services are available (the IP address
of a PNAgent/PNLite server is entered into the Network Setup dialog box). The user
logs on to the PNAgent/PNLite server but does not log on to the file server or use
configuration user profiles. If the PNAgent/PNLite server publishes fewer than the limit
of applications set by the administrator, the user can locally define additional
applications. As long as the domain password for the PNAgent/PNLite server matches
the password in an ini file for the same user on the FTP server, both the PNAgent/
PNLite published applications and the directives in the user ini file will be processed
(with the PNAgent/PNLite published applications being processed first). However,
other directives from the user ini file could alter the privilege, the default display
resolution, and so on. With the enable local clause for the connect statement,
connections defined in the user ini file may be persistent.
Understanding System Lock-down
Your administrator can configure whether or not to allow access to the Network Setup
dialog box to locally re-configured the thin client to operate in a different mode or to
access a different file server.
Note
High-privileged users always have access to the Network Setup dialog box.
During normal thin client operation, Low-privileged and Non-privileged users may access
the Network Setup dialog box by temporarily disconnecting the Ethernet cable from the
rear of the thin client and rebooting to Stand-alone user mode. The Network Setup dialog
box can also be accessed by a hot-key reset to factory default, in addition to the system
reset available to a Stand-alone user through the Sign-off/Shutdown/Shutdown and
Restart the system dialog box.
In most cases, access to normal operation resources is desirable. However, network
environments requiring maximum security typically do not permit uncontrolled changes to
thin client network operation. To achieve this security, the network administrator can place
a lock-down argument in any privilege statement (either in the user .ini file or in wnos.ini
Getting Started
9
file). This prevents Low-privileged and Non-privileged users from accessing the Network
Setup dialog box by resetting the thin client or through system restart to Stand-alone user
mode.
Caution
If a thin client accesses the enterprise intranet through Dial-up or PPTP and
the thin client is locked-down, a user attempting to reboot to Stand-alone
user mode will disable the Network Setup dialog box. The user will not be
able to re-access the enterprise intranet through this path. If this happens,
the thin client must be moved to a location where it can access the intranet
directly so that an administrator can set the profile to unlock the thin client.
If the thin client is configured for Dial-up access, there must be an RAS
server answering the configured telephone number. Otherwise, the thin client
will require factory attention for recovery.
About the Session Services You Will Use
The Desktop connection icons and Connect Manager list entries allow you to initiate
connections to servers providing ICA and RDP services. These services are configured by
the administrator for you to use. Depending on your privileges you can modify some of the
settings on these services. You can start connections by using the various Desktop or the
Connect Manager options made available by the administrator.
The Multiple Sessions feature allows the thin client to have multiple active connections.
The number of active connections you can have depends on the following:
•
amount of RAM
•
types of connections open
•
number of connections configured
For more information on ICA connections, refer to "Configuring ICA Connections."
For more information on RDP connections, refer to "Configuring RDP Connections."
Logging Off and Shutting Down
After using your thin client, you can sign off from your account (if you signed in initially) or
you can shut down the thin client (if your privilege or user mode allows you to do this).
Note
High-privileged, Non-privileged, and Guest users can also sign off from the
Connect Manager.
Click the Desktop User Name button on the taskbar and select Shutdown from the
Desktop menu to open the Sign-off/Shutdown/Shutdown and Restart the system dialog
box. Use this dialog box to do one of the following:
•
Sign-off from the account User Name - Allows you to sign off from the current open
account (the sign-on dialog box appears and is ready for another user).
•
Shutdown the system - Turns off the thin client.
•
Shutdown and Restart the system - Signs off the user account and also allows
posted software updates to be loaded into the thin client memory (the sign-on dialog
box appears after the thin client restarts).
•
Restart the system setting to factory default - Appears for High-privileged and
Stand-alone users only. This option allows you to reset the thin client to factory
defaults.
10
Chapter 2
Note
Depending on how the servers and applications are configured, signing off
from or shutting down the thin client may not necessarily close/open server
sessions. Generally, you should close sessions before signing-off from or
shutting down the thin client.
Using the Desktop
The desktop has a plain background with a horizontal taskbar at the bottom of the screen.
The number of icons that can be displayed on the desktop depends on the desktop
resolution and administrator configuration.
Note
Custom icons can be assigned to any or all connections defined in the ini
files or a default icon can be used. If no icon is assigned to a connection, the
connection will only appear in the Connect Manager and not on the desktop.
Connections supplied by PNLite and PNAgent have icons assigned by the
server. If you have a High privilege level, you can right-click an icon to open a
Connections Settings dialog box.
If configured by your administrator (Longapplicationname=yes as defined in
wnos.ini), the number of icons displayed for a resolution is as follows:
•
640 x 480: Up to 8 icons are displayed.
•
800 x 600: Up to 10 icons are displayed.
•
1024 x 768: Up to 21 icons are displayed.
•
1280 x 1024: Up to 40 icons are displayed.
•
1600 x 1200: Up to 60 icons are displayed.
PNAgent - The thin client features PNAgent (a Program Neighborhood folder support).
With PNAgent, icons are populated to folders based on the Program Neighborhood setup
on the server. Depending on the Citrix server configuration, these icons can display on the
desktop, in the Desktop menu, in the Connect Manager, and in the system tray.
Note
If any network connection is designated to open automatically on startup, it
will open and you will see the server log-in or server application window
instead of the desktop.

not work.
•
You can copy and paste between application sessions and between sessions and the
desktop, however, this function depends on session server configurations.
Viewing System Information
System information is available from the taskbar and from the System Information dialog
box.
If configured by the administrator, CPU usage and free memory are displayed in the box
on the right side of the taskbar. If you click on this area, it will toggle between percent of
CPU usage currently in use and available free memory in megabytes. If you put the
mouse cursor on the taskbar without clicking, a popup appears showing the number (for
example, percent of CPU currently in use and available free memory in megabytes). This
information is also available in the System Information dialog box.
Note
Starting an ICA or RDP connection requires at least 2 megabytes of free
memory.
Clicking the ? icon on the task bar (or selecting System Information from the Desktop
menu) opens the System Information dialog box where you can view thin client system
information (see "Accessing System Information").

Chapter 2
Understanding the Window Display Modes
The thin clients allow three different display modes, including:
•
Standard window - Window frame, title bar, content area, including icons, and so on.
This mode is available for use with any connection.
•
Seamless window - Seamless display. This mode is available for use with published
applications only.
•
Full-screen - Occupies the entire monitor screen with no thin client taskbar, title bar, or
window borders. This mode is available for use with any connection.
Note
In all display modes, use CTRL+ALT+DOWNARROW to open a selection
box for toggling between the desktop, Connect Manager, and
currently-active connections.
The display modes that are available depend on what window mode was in use when the
connection was started. That in turn depends on the relative resolution settings of the
screen and connection. The screen resolution is the actual hardware resolution used by
the thin client video chip (local resolution set either by DDC or selected manually and is
referred to as the default resolution). This resolution can be different than the connection
resolution (set with the Connection Settings dialog box or in the user profile by the
administrator), which is the dimensions of the connection screen display in pixels.
Use the following guidelines:
•
If the connection is started in full-screen mode, a user can toggle between Full-screen
mode and Standard window mode by using CTRL+ALT+UPARROW.
•
If the connection is started with either the default resolution or a connection resolution
matching the current display resolution, and then the Seamless window mode is
selected, the connection starts in the Seamless window mode (the Seamless mode
has a few less rows of pixels than the Full-screen mode to make room for the thin client
task bar at the bottom of the screen). The task bar displays on startup, but can be
modified to be shown or hidden by using CTRL+ALT+UPARROW. In this Seamless
window mode the connection display cannot be moved to a different location on the
screen, regardless of whether or not the task bar is displayed. When the task bar is
hidden, the area at the bottom of the screen is blank (black). When the task bar is
shown, it can be used to switch between sessions simply by clicking an icon for
another session in the task bar.
•
If the connection is started with an explicit resolution (that is, something other than the
default resolution set in the user profile or Connection Settings dialog box) less than
the current default resolution and the Standard window mode is selected (in the
Connection Settings dialog box or in the user profile setting), the connection is
displayed in a Standard window. Using CTRL+ALT+UPARROW changes the current
screen resolution to match the connection resolution and the connection is displayed in
Full-screen mode. Using CTRL+ALT+UPARROW again restores the original screen
resolution and will again display the connection in the Standard window mode. In
Full-screen mode the hardware resolution changes only for the duration of the
connection, then changes back to the default resolution when the connection is no
longer in the foreground.
•
Making a Seamless window a Full-screen display does not cause the application to fill
the screen. Instead, the application remains the same size and any portion of the
screen previously not occupied is filled with a black mask (including the screen space
previously occupied by the thin client taskbar).
Note
The thin client features PNAgent (a Program Neighborhood folder support).
With PNAgent, icons are populated to folders based on the Program
Getting Started
13
Neighborhood setup on the server. These icons display on the desktop and
in various places (for example, Systray and the user Desktop submenu
application selections) depending on the Citrix server configuration.
For more information on configuring the resolution and refresh rate for the monitor used
with the thin client, refer to "Selecting Display Settings."
Using the Shortcut Menu and Desktop Menu
Right-clicking on the desktop provides a Shortcut menu with the following options:
•
Hide all windows – To bring the full desktop to the foreground.
•
Copy to clipboard – To copy the image of the full screen, current window, or event log
to the clipboard. The clipboard contents can then be pasted to an ICA or an RDP
session.
•
Purge clipboard – To discard the contents of the clipboard in order to free up memory.
•
Lock Terminal – To put the terminal in a locked state if the user has signed on to the
system with a password. The terminal can only be unlocked using the same password.

Using the Connect Manager
Clicking the Connect Manager button on the task bar opens the Connect Manager. The
Connect Manager has a list of connection entries and a set of command buttons available
for use with the connections.
Note
Non-privilege users cannot view the Connect Manager.
Figure 4
Connect Manager (High-privileged user example)
The command buttons available depend on the privileges of the user and administrator
configuration; the following default examples are typical:
•
High-privileged user - Includes Connect, New, Settings, and Sign-off.
•
Low-privileged user - Includes Connect, Settings, and Sign-off.
•
Guest user - Includes Connect, New, Settings, and Sign-off.
•
Stand-alone user - Includes Connect, New, Settings, and Delete.
Note
If set by the administrator (enablelocal=yes in the user.ini/wnos.ini file),
High-privileged, Guest, and Low-privileged users will have the Delete
command button available instead of the Sign-off command button).
The use associated with these command buttons also depends on user privilege. For
example, Settings allows a High-privileged user to view and edit connection definitions,
while it allows a Low-privileged user to only view connection definitions.
Note
Guest user privileges are determined by the administrator.
The Connect Manager command buttons include:
•
Connect - To make a connection, select a connection from the list and click Connect.
•
New - Clicking New opens the Connection Settings dialog box either directly or
through the Connection Protocol menu selection for creating a new connection
definition (for more information on the Connection Settings dialog box, refer to "About
Configuring ICA and RDP Connections"). The new locally-defined connections are
added to the connection list. Be aware of the following information:
•
High-privileged and Guest user - Typically, all locally-defined connection
definitions are temporary and are lost when the user logs off and when the thin
client restarts or is shut down. However, if configured by the administrator
Getting Started
17
(enablelocal=yes), locally-defined connection definitions can be saved in these
cases.
•
•
Stand-alone user - Locally-defined connections are retained when the thin client
restarts or is shut down (there is no individual log-on). Network configuration
settings must be made locally.
Settings - Clicking Settings opens the Connection Settings dialog box for the selected
connection (for more information on the Connection Settings dialog box, refer to "About
Configuring ICA and RDP Connections"). Be aware of the following information:
•
High-privileged user - Can view and edit the definitions for the currently-selected
connection. Edits are not permanently retained when the user signs-off.
•
Stand-alone user - Can permanently modify the persistent connections (except
when PNAgent/PNLite services are used).
•
Guest user - Can modify connections, however, the changes are lost at log-off or
restart.
•
Low-privileged user - Cannot create or edit connections, but can view connection
definitions.
•
Sign-off - To sign-off from the thin client, click Sign-off.
•
Delete - To delete a connection, select a connection from the list and click Delete.
About Configuring ICA and RDP Connections
To open the Connection Settings dialog box for a connection, select the connection you
want from the list of available connections in the Connect Manger and click Settings (to
add new connections, click New in the Connect Manager).
For information on configuring ICA connections, refer to "Configuring ICA Connections."
For information on configuring RDP connections, refer to "Configuring RDP Connections."
Use the following information when configuring connections (this information assumes
that the thin client does not have a locked down privilege level):
•
High-Privileged User - The additional functionality provided by the Connection
Settings dialog box allows testing of connection definitions before they are entered (by
the network administrator) into the user profile files.
•
Low-Privileged User - The settings for the selected connection can be viewed but
cannot be edited, and new connections cannot be defined. Connection definitions are
controlled by the network administrator and are accessed by the thin client from the
user profiles located on a remote server.
•
Guest - Only connections defined in the Global profile can be viewed.
•
Stand-alone User - The Connect Manager is available to Stand-alone users because
connection definitions cannot be accessed from remote user profiles. If user profiles
are available on an FTP server but are not accessed because DHCP is not available or
is not configured to provide the file server IP address, the file server IP location can be
entered manually using the Network Setup dialog box.

Chapter 2
Configuring ICA Connections
If you open the Connection Settings dialog box for an ICA connection (select the ICA
connection in the Connect Manger and click Settings), you can view and configure the
connection (to add new ICA connections, use New in the Connect Manager).

Getting Started
19
Use the following guidelines:
•
Server or Published Application - Select the type of connection to which the settings
apply.
•
Connection Description - Enter the descriptive name that is to appear in the
connection list (38 characters maximum).
•
Browser Servers IP - Enter a delimited (comma or semicolon) list of IP addresses or
DNS-registered names of ICA servers that contains the master browsers list, or that
could refer to another server that contains the list. The master browsers list is
generated automatically by a browsing program on one of the ICA servers (selected by
negotiation between servers). It is used to provide the information displayed in the
Server Name or IP list box. No entry is needed if the list is on an ICA server in the
same network segment as the thin client. No entry is necessary if the connection is to a
server, or if the server name or IP contains the IP address of the server.
•
Host Name or Application Name (title depends on the Server or Published
Application option selected) - You can enter a delimited (semicolon or comma
separated) list of server hostnames or IP addresses, or you can select from the list of
ICA servers or published applications (depending on Server or Published
Application option selected) obtained from the ICA master browser (you can also use
the browse button next to the list box to make the selection you want). If you enter a
delimited list of servers, the thin client attempts to connect to the next server on the list
if the previous server attempt failed. If you use the list and the selected connection
fails, the thin client attempts to connect to the next one on the list.
Note
The Host Name may be resolved using one of three mechanisms: ICA
master browser, DNS, or WINS. Master browser is the only mechanism that
can resolve a published application (unless manual entry is made in DNS for
the application). DNS uses the default domain name in the network control
panel to attempt to construct an FQDN but will also try to resolve the name
without using the default.
•
Encryption Level - Allows you to select the security level of communications between
the thin client and the ICA server. Basic (the default option) is the lowest level of
security. Basic allows faster communication between the device and the ICA server
because it requires less processing than do the higher levels of encryption.
Caution
The encryption selection applies to the security of communications between
the thin client and the ICA server only. It is independent of the security
settings of individual applications on the ICA server. For example, most Web
financial transactions require the thin client to use 128-bit encryption.
However, transaction information could be exposed to a lower level of
security if the thin client encryption is not also set to 128 bits.
•
Use HTTP for browsing - When selected, the thin client by default will use http when
browsing.
•
Alternate address via firewall - When selected, the thin client will use an alternate IP
address returned from the ICA master browser to get through firewalls. Used for the
Windows log-on when the connection is activated.
•
Logging on area - Enter login username, password, and domain name. If these boxes
are not populated, you can enter the information manually in the ICA server login
screen when the connection is made. Use the following guidelines:
•
Login Username - 31 characters maximum.
•
Password - 19 characters maximum.
•
Domain Name - 31 characters maximum.

this connection, or is a Stand-alone user, or simply omitted.
•
Turn compression off - When selected, turns compression off (intended for
high-speed connections).
•
Optimize for low speed link - When selected, allows optimization for low-speed
connections, such as reducing audio quality and/or decreasing protocol-specific cache
size. Intended for a connection spanning a WAN link or using dialup.

Setting Up the Thin Client
This chapter contains information to help you set up your thin client using the System
Setup submenu.
Since the setup information for individual users (user profile) is stored in a remote
database, very little setup is required of a thin client operator. Your user profile is loaded
into the thin client when you log-on. For this reason, you can log-on to another thin client
(under the same account name) and see the same user profile settings.
A few setup items are reserved for local selection (not available to Non-privileged users).
They are available locally because they are user preference items or pertain to the thin
client hardware rather than the person using the thin client. Additional local settings may
be required if some of the network services are not available. Generally, the defaults and
initial setup configurations are adequate and any changes should be made under
guidance of the network administrator.
To access the local setup menus (System Settings submenu), click the User Name button
(located at the bottom-left side of the taskbar), and select System Setup.
The System Setup submenu provides access to local system setup dialog boxes for:
•
“Setting System Preferences”
•
“Configuring Network Settings”
•
“Setting Up Wireless Access”
•
“Selecting Display Settings”
•
“Configuring Serial Communications”
•

Configuring Network Settings
The Network Setup dialog box allows you to configure thin client network settings
(including operation in modem dialup and PPPoE modes, as well as locations of servers
essential to thin client operation).
Note
If required by the operating environment, the network administrator may
disable access to this dialog box. Specifically, it cannot be accessed by
Non-privileged and Low-privileged users (and not until after log on if using
dial-up or PPPoE access). In addition, if the network administrator has set
the lockdown mode by means of an entry in the user profile, both system
reset and access to this dialog box are disabled for Stand-alone users as
well.
For more information about system lockdown, refer to "Understanding System
Lock-down."

selection can be made if automatic negotiation is not supported by your network
equipment. Selections include Auto-Detect, 10 Mb Half-Duplex, 10 Mb Full-Duplex,
100 Mb Half-Duplex, 100 Mb Full-Duplex.
Note
The 10 Mb Full-Duplex option can be selected locally at the device,
however, this mode may need to be negotiated through Auto-Detect.
Setting Up the Thin Client
29
•
No local Ethernet, Modem dialup only - Select this option if the thin client will access
a network through a dial-up modem (for more information, refer to "Configuring Dialup
Modem Access"and "Configuring Serial Communications."
•
No local LAN, invoke PPPoE only - Select this option if the thin client will access a
network through a PPPoE connection. For more information, refer to "Configuring
PPPoE Access."
•
Dynamically allocated over DHCP/BOOTP - Selecting this option enables the thin
client to automatically receive (from the DHCP server) the following:
•
All network settings, including its IP address and the location of the file server.
•
A list of PNAgent/PNLite servers that may be used to obtain a list of published
applications.
•
A list of Windows domains that can be selected for use when authenticating a user
for PNAgent/PNLite.
•
An FTP user name and password to be authenticated when using non-anonymous
FTP server access.
•
A list of Rapport servers and the TCP port to be used when contacting those
servers.
Note
The network administrator must configure the DHCP server to provide this
information. Any value provided by the DHCP server will replace any
information entered locally however, that locally entered information will be
used if the DHCP server fails to provide replacement values.
If the thin client is to be used as an LPD server, DHCP cannot be used and a
static IP address must be assigned (see “Configuring LPD Services” ).
•
•
Statically specified IP Address - Select this option to manual enter the IP Address,
Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway.
•
IP Address - Must be a valid network address in the thin client server environment.
The network administrator must provide this information.
•
Subnet Mask - Enter the value of the subnet mask. A subnet mask is used to gain
access to machines on other subnets. The subnet mask is used to differentiate the
location of other IP addresses with two choices: same subnet or other subnet. If the
location is other subnet, messages sent to that address must be sent through the
Default Gateway, whether specified through local configuration or through DHCP.
Ask the network administrator for this value.
•
Default Gateway - Use of gateways is optional. Gateways are used to interconnect
multiple networks (routing or delivering IP packets between them). The default
gateway is used for accessing the Internet or an intranet with multiple subnets. If no
gateway is specified, the thin client can only address other systems on the same
subnet. Enter the address of the router that connects the thin client to the Internet.
The address must exist on the same subnet as the thin client as defined by the IP
address and the subnet mask. If DHCP is used, the address can be supplied
through DHCP.
DHCP Vendor ID - Shows the DHCP Vendor ID when the Dynamically allocated
over DHCP / BOOTP option is selected.

Chapter 3
Figure 13
Network Setup - Name Servers tab
Use the following guidelines:
•
DNS Domain and DNS Servers - Use of DNS is optional. DNS allows you to specify
remote systems by their host names rather than IP addresses. If a specific IP address
(instead of a name) is entered for a connection, it rather than DNS will be used to make
the connection. Enter the DNS Domain and the network address of an available DNS
Server. The function of the DNS Domain entry is to provide a default suffix to be used
in name resolution. The values for these two boxes may be supplied by a DHCP
server. If the DHCP server supplies these values, they will replace any locally
configured values. If the DHCP server does not supply these values, the locally
configured values will be used.
Note
You may enter two DNS Server addresses, separated by a semicolon,
comma, or space. The first address is for the primary DNS server and the
second is for a backup DNS server.
•
WINS Servers - Use of WINS is optional. Enter the network address of an available
WINS name server. WINS allows you to specify remote systems by their host names
rather than IP addresses. If a specific IP address (instead of a name) is entered for a
connection, it rather than WINS will be used to make the connection. These entries can
be supplied through DHCP if DHCP is used. DNS and WINS provide essentially the
same function, name resolution. If both DNS and WINS are available, the thin client will
attempt to resolve the name using DNS first and then WINS.
Note
You may enter two WINS Server addresses, separated by a semicolon,
comma, or space. The first address is for the primary WINS server and the
second is for a backup WINS server.

Network Setup - Servers tab
Use the following guidelines:
•
File Servers/Path, Username, and Password - IP address or host name of the FTP
server that provides the system software and update images. The address can be
supplied through DHCP if DHCP is used. Use the following guidelines:
•
File Servers/Path - Allows 128 characters maximum. The data specifies part of the
path to be used when the server is accessed. Multiple file servers/paths may be
named, as long as all data fits in the length limitation.
•
Username - To log in to the FTP server. Use 15 characters maximum.
•
Password - To log in to the FTP server. Use 15 characters maximum.
Note
The FTP server also provides Global and User profiles (if they exist), optional
custom bitmaps to modify the appearance of the login window (if used), and
bitmaps for custom icons to be used when displaying connections on the
desktop.
•
PN Agent/Lite Servers, Rapport Servers, Time Servers and VDI Brokers - List of IP
addresses or host names with optional TCP port number of Time servers. Each entry
with optional port number is specified as Name-or-IP:port, where :port is optional. If not
specified, port 80 is used. Locations can be supplied through user profiles if user
profiles are used. The Time server(s) provide thin client time based on the settings of
time zone and daylight saving information. If DHCP is used, locations can be supplied
through DHCP. You can also click the PNA command button to open the Reconnect
Options dialog box, and further configure the connection for automatic reconnection.
Note
The Virtual Desktop Broker supports both http and https, and depends on the
Virtual Desktop Broker server support. If http or https is not specified on the
Virtual Desktop Broker server, then http is used by default. If https is
specified, the client side must install a corresponding root certificate.
After making a VDI Brokers entry, be sure to reboot the thin client to have
the changes take effect.

Setting Up Wireless Access
The Wireless Setup dialog box allows you to configure the parameters required for
wireless wide-band modem access to the enterprise intranet.
A wireless wide-band network device can be used to access the enterprise intranet. The
wireless network device connects to a USB port on the thin client and uses short-range
wide-band radio to communicate with a wireless access point. Typically, wireless access
points are located at several locations in the enterprise within range of the wide-band
modems, and connect directly to the enterprise intranet.
Service Set Identification (SSID), Channel, and encryption keys (WEP keys) must be
entered in the Wireless Setup dialog box on the thin client. Corresponding entries must
also be made in the enterprise access point (except for this, thin client operation is the
same as Ethernet direct access, including access to the enterprise DHCP server).
Figure 17
Wireless Setup
Use the following guidelines:
•
Network Mode options:
•
Infrastructure (default) - This mode of operation requires the presence of an IEEE
specification 802.11b-compliant access point. All communication is done through
the access point which relays packets to other wireless clients as well as to nodes
on a wired Ethernet network.
•
Ad Hoc - This is the IEEE 802.11b peer-to-peer mode of operation. In this mode,
only one wireless cell is supported for each different Service Set Identification
(SSID). All communication is done client-to-client without the use of an access
point.
•
SSID - Enter the Service Set Identification set up by the network administrator for this
wireless communication link.
•
Channel - Select the frequency channel (0 through 14) to be used for this wireless
communication link (the channel can only be selected in Ad Hoc mode, as the channel
is selected based on the relative strength of signals from the available access points in
Infrastructure mode).
•
WEP Key - Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption can be enabled by selecting
one of the keys in the list corresponding to those entered in the Key #1 through Key #4
boxes. Select None if encryption is not required. WEP uses the selected key to
34
Chapter 3
encrypt/decrypt each frame transmitted from or received by the wireless adapter. The
access point must recognize frames encrypted by the same key.
•
Key #1 through Key #4 boxes - Enter the encryption keys provided by the network
administrator. The WEP Key selection determines which key is used for encryption.
Selecting Display Settings
The Display Setup dialog box allows you to select the resolution and refresh rate for the
monitor used with the thin client. The number of icons that can be displayed on the
desktop depends on the desktop resolution and administrator configuration.
Note
On thin clients that only support 8 bit color, the 1280 x 1024 resolution will be
used to display full screen connections. The 1280 x 1024 resolution will not
be used to display the desktop, windowed connections, or seamless
connections.
If configured by your administrator (Longapplicationname=yes as defined in
wnos.ini), the number of icons displayed for a resolution is as follows:
•
640 x 480: Up to 8 icons are displayed.
•
800 x 600: Up to 10 icons are displayed.
•
1024 x 768: Up to 21 icons are displayed.

Setting Up Printers
The Printer Setup dialog box allows configuration of network printers and local printers
that are connected to the thin client (USB and Serial). Through its USB ports, a thin client
can support multiple printers. If more than one printer is to be used and another port is not
available on your thin client and the port that is to be used must be shared with a USB
modem converter, connect a USB hub to the port.
Note
If required, USB-to-Parallel and USB-to-Serial converter cables are available
from Wyse Technology. Port LPT1 or LPT2 selects the connection to a USB
printer or parallel printer through a USB-to-Parallel cable. Port COM1 or
COM2 selects the connection to a serial device through a USB-to-Serial
cable. For ordering information, refer to the Wyse Web site at: http://

Using and Configuring Access
Connections
This chapter provides information and detailed instructions on using and configuring
connections to access the enterprise server environment available to the thin client.
This section includes information on:
•
“Using Ethernet Direct Access”
•
“Using Wireless Direct Access”
•
“Configuring PPPoE Access”
•
“Configuring Dialup Modem Access”
•
“Configuring PPTP VPN Access”
Using Ethernet Direct Access
This is a direct connection from the thin client Ethernet port to the enterprise intranet. No
additional hardware is required.
Using Wireless Direct Access
An 802.11b USB Wireless Adapter can be used to access the enterprise intranet. The
adapter connects to a USB port on the thin client and uses short-range wide-band radio to
communicate with a wireless access point. Typically, wireless access points are located at
several locations in the enterprise within range of the 802.11b USB Wireless Adapters and
directly connect to the enterprise intranet.
After a wireless connection is made to the enterprise intranet, operation of the thin client
through the wireless link is the same as Ethernet direct access.
Note
The speed of the connection is a function of signal strength, with a maximum
of 11 Mbps.
For setup information, refer to "Setting Up Wireless Access."
44
Chapter 4
Configuring PPPoE Access
PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) is a specification for connecting users on
an Ethernet to the Internet or intranet through a common broadband medium, such as a
single DSL line, wireless device, or cable modem. PPPoE combines the Point-to-Point
Protocol (PPP), commonly used in dialup connections, with the Ethernet protocol, which
supports multiple users in a local area network. The PPP protocol information is
encapsulated within an Ethernet frame.
The PPPoE Manager is available from the desktop to configure and invoke PPPoE
connection to WAN. Once connected, all WAN packets are though a PPP connection over
Ethernet to the DSL modem. The PPPoE Manager is not accessible for users with sign-on
privilege set to None.
Selecting PPPoE Manager in the Desktop menu opens the PPPoE Manager dialog box.
The PPPoE Manager dialog box can also be set to open automatically on thin client start
as described in "Configuring Network Settings."

Configuring Dialup Modem Access
A USB dial-up modem or a USB-to-Serial adapter connected to a serial modem can be
used with the thin client to access a dial-up server.
The dial-up server may provide either of two paths to the enterprise intranet:
•
An enterprise dial-up server will directly connect to the enterprise intranet.
•
An Internet Service Provider (ISP) dial-up server provides access to the Internet, from
which the thin client must access an enterprise PPTP VPN server that connects to the
enterprise intranet.
The Dialup Manager is used to initiate a connection to a dialup server through a modem.
Selecting Dialup Manager in the Desktop menu opens the Dialup Manager dialog box.
The Dialup Manager dialog box can also be set to open automatically on thin client start
as described in "Configuring Network Settings."
Note
Applications accessed through a dialup connection generally should have
the Optimize for low speed link option selected in the user profile or the
Connection Settings (ICA or RDP) dialog box.

responses that otherwise must be entered manually in response to messages received
from the dialed server and displayed in the message box of the Dialup Status dialog
box. The specific scripts are unique to each target system. Using the escape codes
listed under the box, as needed, create the script as Expected String <space> Output
String pairs. Place quotation marks around strings that have spaces in them. The
required strings can be tested by entering them manually in the dialup progress dialog
box.
Note
Ask your network administrator for specific script requirements.
•
Interface login to the dialup server - This option is an alternative to providing a login
script. Enable (select) the interactive login feature only if the dialed server requires it.
The dialup status dialog box (which opens when the connection is dialed) will display
prompts from the dialed machine. Type the appropriate responses directly in the status
display area.

Note
Ask your network administrator for the dialed server password and other
dialog requirements.
•
Enable protocol compression - When selected, allows data that is being
communicated using the selected protocol (PPP or SLIP) to be compressed (default is
selected).
•
Auto-dial on system startup - When selected, causes the connection to be dialed
automatically on system startup. (default is cleared).
Note
When the Default Gateway, DNS Domain, DNS Server, and File Server
boxes in the Network Setup dialog box are configured and Auto-dial on
system startup is enabled, both firmware revision checking and thin client
sign-on are active (sign-on is only active if the profile on the FTP server
enables it).
The Default Gateway, DNS Domain, DNS Server, and File Server boxes
are required to enable access to an FTP server after the completion of
establishing a PPP connection. However, only the File Server path is
required to accomplish firmware revision checking and update (the more
complicated the network topology in the target network, the more values are
required in order to contact the FTP server).
If both Auto-dial on system startup is selected and Auto-connect on system
startup is selected in a PPTP connection, the dial-up connection will be
completed before the PPTP connection is initiated.
•
Enable MPPE - When selected, enables MPPE (Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption).
MPPE is a method of encrypting data transferred across Point-to-Point Protocol
(PPP)-based dial-up connections or Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) virtual
private network (VPN) connections. MPPE uses the RSA algorithm for encryption and
supports 40-bit and 128-bit session keys, which are changed frequently to ensure
security. MPPE does not compress or expand data.
After dialup initiation, the Dialup Status dialog box opens displaying messages and
allowing you to refresh, reset, or disconnect the connection.

Chapter 4
Use the following guidelines:
•
Message area - Displays messages as dialing progresses and the connection is
established. If this is an interactive login connection, type appropriate responses to
messages if you are prompted (ask your network administrator for the dialed server
password and other dialog requirements).
•
Data area - Displays data and statistics about the connection.
•
Refresh - Updates the statistics display of the connection.
•
Reset - Cancels dialing and resets the connection statistics area to 0.
•
Disconnect - Disconnects the connection.
Configuring PPTP VPN Access
PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) is a network protocol that enables the secure
transfer of data between a remote client (in this case a thin client) and an enterprise server
environment by creating a virtual private network (VPN) across TCP/IP-based data
networks such as the Internet. It provides a password-protected path through the
enterprise firewall to the enterprise server environment in which the network and session
services required by thin clients reside.
The PPTP Manager dialog box is used to initiate a connection to a virtual private network
(VPN) PPTP server through any of several access services (for example, dial-up, cable, or
DSL). Connection parameters are entered using the PPTP Property dialog box.
Note
Modem access to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) server must be
established before attempting to use this dialog box.
Selecting PPTP Manager in the Desktop menu opens the Dialup Manager dialog box. The
PPTP Manager dialog box can also be set to open automatically on thin client start as
described in "Configuring Network Settings."
Figure 29
PPTP Manager
Use the following guidelines:
•
Description/Protocol area - Lists a description and protocol of each PPTP property
entry created using the PPTP Property dialog box.
•
Connect - Initiates a PPTP connection for a currently-selected list entry. After initiation,
a PPTP Status dialog box opens (if Show progress in detail is selected in the PPTP
Property dialog box and a path to an enterprise PPTP VPN server is available)
displaying messages and allowing you to refresh or disconnect the connection. A
PPTP connection is also initiated automatically on system start-up if this feature is
selected in the PPTP Property dialog box.

MPPC scheme is a means of representing arbitrary Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)
packets in a compressed form. The MPPC algorithm is designed to optimize processor
utilization and bandwidth utilization in order to support a large number of simultaneous
connections. The MPPC algorithm is also optimized to work efficiently in typical PPP
scenarios (1500 byte MTU, and so on).

Using the Network Test Tools
This chapter contains information on using the Network test tools available on the thin
client.
Ping (Packet InterNet Groper) and Trace Route can be used for checking the integrity of
the network connection (ping also checks the usability of the network configuration and
the availability of all equipment required to communicate between the thin client and the
ping destination). These tools can be accessed from the Network Test submenu of the
Desktop menu (generally, ping and Trace Route are used for system diagnostics by, or
under the direction of, a network administrator).
Using Ping
The ping dialog box executes the ping diagnostic utility and displays response messages.
Ping is a diagnostic tool that sends an echo request to a network host. The host parameter
is either a valid host name or an IP address. If the host is operational and on the network,
it responds to the echo request. By default, echo requests are sent until interrupted (by
clicking Stop in the ping dialog box). The ping utility sends one echo request per second
and calculates round trip times and packet loss statistics, and displays a brief summary
upon completion of the calculation.
The ping utility can be used to:
•
Determine the status of the network and various foreign hosts
•
Track and isolate hardware and software problems
•
Test, measure, and manage networks
•
Determine the IP address of a host if only the hostname is known
Note
Not all network equipment will respond to ping packets, since this is a
common mechanism used in denial-of-service attacks. Lack of response
does not necessarily indicate that the target of the ping is unusable for other
purposes.

Chapter 5
Use the following guidelines:
•
Enter Hostname or IP - Enter the IP address, DNS-registered host name, or
WINS-registered host name of the target to be pinged.
•
Data area - Displays ping response messages. The ping command sends one echo
request per second, calculates round trip times and packet loss statistics, and displays
a brief summary upon completing the calculation.
•
Start - Executes the ping command. If the host is operational and on the network, it
responds to the echo request. By default, echo requests are sent until interrupted by
clicking Stop.
•
Stop - Terminates the ping request and leaves the ping dialog box open (so you can
read the summary posted in the data area).
Using Trace Route
The Trace Route dialog box executes the tracert diagnostic utility and displays response
messages. The tracert utility traces the path from your thin client to a network host. The
host parameter is either a valid host name or an IP address. The tracert utility sends out a
packet of information three times to each device (routers and computers) in the path and
displays the round trip response times and identifying information in the message box.
Figure 33
Trace Route
Use the following guidelines:
•
Enter Hostname or IP - Enter the IP address, DNS-registered host name, or
WINS-registered host name of the target to be traced.
•
Data area - Displays round-trip response time and identifying information for each
device in the path.
•
Start - Executes the tracert command.
•
Stop - Terminates the tracert command and leaves the Trace Route dialog box open
(so you can read the information posted in the data area).
