Quick Installation

3 Quick Installation
If you carry out the following steps, the terminal can be installed in your network environment
within a few minutes.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Connect the terminal to a VGA monitor, an AT compatible keyboard with PS/2 or USB
connector, a PS/2 or USB mouse, the LAN via RJ45 and AC power.
Turn on the terminal and wait until the graphical desktop has started (around 30 seconds)
and the window of the application launcher appears on the screen. Highlight the setup
entry and start the setup either by pressing the START button or double clicking on the
setup entry.
Select your keyboard layout in the “Input/Keyboard” menu.
Select your display settings in the “Display” menu.
Complete the terminal setup program by entering a local IP address in the “Network”
section or keep the default DHCP mode for automatic network configuration.
Finally “save” the settings, press “ok” and confirm with “yes”.
The unit will reboot now and will come up with the new settings.
Note:
For detailed session configuration refer to Chapter 6.4.
Virtually every setting is “equipped” with a meaningful Tool Tip. Simply move the mouse
pointer over the setting/option you want to know more about and wait a second.

Boot Procedure
5
4 Boot Procedure
4.1
System BIOS
The BIOS looks for extensions in the appropriate memory area.
If there is a DOC (Disk On Chip) in use, the BIOS extension will be detected and executed.
If there is a DOM (Disk On Module) or CF (Compact Flash) in your unit, they are IDE devices
and directly treated as hard disks.
The next step is the execution of the master boot record, which starts a secondary stage loader.
4.2
Secondary Stage Loader and Boot Menu
The secondary stage loader provides the user with a menu, which is reached by pressing the
“ESC” key when the “Loading Kernel …” message appears on the screen.
You can then choose between 3 boot options and the option of resetting the Thin Client to its
factory defaults.
•
•
•
•
Quiet Boot
Verbose Boot
Emergency Boot (setup only)
Reset to factory defaults
4.2.1
Quiet Boot
“Quiet Boot” is the standard boot mode; it suppresses all messages from the kernel and starts
up the graphical desktop.
4.2.2
Verbose Boot
If the “Verbose Boot” is chosen, the boot messages are shown and you will have a diagnostic
shell, from which common debug commands (like “ifconfig”, etc) can be executed. To leave this
shell type “init 3” and the boot process continues.
4.2.3
Emergency Boot
If you choose “Emergency Boot” (setup only with standard parameter values), the secondary
stage loader looks for a bootable system in the flash and continues the boot process as in the
other boot modes. Emergency Boot basically starts the X Server without the network driver at a
resolution of 640 x 480 – 60 Hz and finally starts directly into the setup. This is very useful if you
selected a too high screen resolution or chose a wrong mouse type.
4.2.4
Reset to Default Factory Settings
All your personal settings including your password and configured sessions will be lost if you
choose this option. Before the reset is applied, a warning message is displayed on the screen,
where you have to explicitly confirm your decision.
If the terminal is protected by an administrator password, you will be prompted to enter it.
In case this password is not known anymore, you will have to contact us by using the online
support form on our web page www.igel.de in the “service” section.
Provide the displayed “terminal key” and the stated firmware version and, of course, your
contact data.
Our support will provide a so-called “reset to factory defaults key” for this specific unit.
(Every key is valid for one single unit only, to keep this process at its most convenient, but still
secure.)
4.3
Networking
After loading the kernel the network configuration follows. Three different ways can be chosen
to include the terminal in the network environment. According to the settings of the terminal,
DHCP, BOOTP or manual configured IP address can be used.
4.4
X Server
The last step of the boot procedure is the start of the X-Server and the local window manager.

Setup (Global Settings)
6
5 Setup (Global Settings)
After the boot procedure has completed, a desktop such as the above will be displayed on the
screen.
The “Application Launcher” starts automatically because it’s set to “autostart & restart” by
default. Because the “Setup” program is the central configuration tool for all global settings of
the Thin Client, a “Setup” session is also predefined.
5.1
Starting the Setup
You can reach the setup in three different ways:
• Select the “Setup” entry in the “Application Launcher” and double click it or press the “Start”
button in the lower left corner of the window.
• Click on the “IGEL” icon in the very lower left corner and in the pop-up select “Setup”.
• Clicking on any free space on the desktop with the right mouse button will cause a dropdown list to appear; again select the “Setup” entry to proceed.
These are the default settings to reach the setup. You can configure it to be reachable in every
combination of these three possibilities within the “Application Launcher” (see Chapter 6).
5.1.1
Leaving the Setup
In general, every particular setup page
provides an “OK”, “Cancel” and “Save”
button.
After all configurations in a particular setup
section have been made and you want to save
your settings without leaving the setup program, click on the “Save” button.
If you did not change any settings and you want to exit the setup, click on the “Cancel” button.
In case you changed settings, leaving the setup with “OK” will prompt you with the above “Apply
Settings” popup. Decide if you want to let the changes take effect immediately (“Yes”), save and
let it become effective on next reboot (“No”), or “Cancel” to stay within setup.

Setup (Global Settings)
7
General
When the “IGEL Setup” has been started, first the “General” page appears on the screen.
Some system information in additional to the product name is provided on this page along with
some vital information like the firmware version, the memory size (RAM) and the flash size.
• Language
Select the appropriate language from the list. (Currently “German” and “English” only.)
Note: The chosen language is the user interface language, so it’s valid for all local applications.
• Tooltips
These are small dropdown windows with a short description of the pointed menu entry. These
tooltips open up if you stay on a menu entry with your mouse pointer for the entered amount of
“Tooltip Delay” time (in tenth of seconds).
• Set Time and Date …
Click on the “Set Time and Date” button to open up
this dialog-box.
Make your changes and confirm them by pressing
the “Set time and Date” button once, then close this
page.
If a Time Server such as this is available in your
network, you may also use the “Network Time
Protocol” (NTP) to request the proper time and date
automatically during each boot up

Keyboard
• Keyboard Layout
Select your “Keyboard layout” here. The layout will be valid for all parts of the
system including emulations, window sessions and X applications. (Table to
the right shows all currently supported layouts.)
• Keyboard Type
Choose your keyboard type from
the available from this drop box:
• Character Repeat
In this section you can set the auto repeat behavior for the keyboard:
o Repeat Delay
Sets the delay time (in milliseconds) between pressing a key and
the start of the auto repeat mode.
o Repeat Rate
Sets the number of repeated characters per second.
• Enable Dead Keys
Enable this function if the chosen keyboard layout uses dead keys for special
characters.
• Disable Xkeyboard extension
Activating this button disables the language-specific keymappings of the local X-Server.
(Thus you will in fact have US keyboard layout.)
Within an XDM connection, though, keys may be mapped by the server.
• Start with Numlock on
Enable this checkbox if you want Numlock to be automatically activated during the boot
process.

Mouse
• Mouse Type and Mouse Port
Set the type and port of the attached mouse
device from these two dropdown boxes:
• Left-hand mode
Changes the orientation of the mouse to left handed by swapping the mouse buttons.
• Emulate 3-Button Mouse (not supported with serial mouse)
Enable/disable the emulation of the third (middle) mouse button for mice which only have two
physical buttons. The third button is emulated by pressing both buttons simultaneously.
• Emulate 3-Button Timeout
Sets the timeout (in milliseconds) the driver waits before deciding if two buttons where pressed
"simultaneously", if 3-button emulation is enabled.
• Hide Cursor
In case you don’t use a mouse or you want to show some self-running presentations, you may
set a mouse cursor idle timeout. To completely disable the mouse cursor, set timeout to zero.
• Mouse Resolution
Here you set the resolution of your mouse in counts per inch.
• Mouse Double-Click Time
The maximum interval (in milliseconds) between two successive mouse clicks to recognize a
double click may be altered here.
• Mouse Double-Click Range
The maximum distance (in pixels) between two successive mouse clicks to recognize a double
click may be altered here.

Touch Screen
Note: To get into and navigate within the setup, it’s recommended to do the initial configuration
with an attached mouse. You may also use the “Emergency Boot” and navigate through the
setup with the keyboard by using the cursor arrows, tab and space bar.
• Touch Screen Type
The supported types are currently “Elographics” and “MicroTouch”.
• Touch Screen already calibrated
After enabling the touch screen functionality, you have to calibrate it minimal once. As long as
you do not activate this checkbox, the calibration will automatically start at every boot up.
• Swap X and Y Values
Activate this option in case you rotate the panel by 90 degrees (portrait mode).
• Minimal and Maximal X and Y Values.
These will be set by the calibration tool. (You may also manipulate them manually)
• Untouch Delay
The maximal time (in milliseconds) allowed between two touch events still being interpreted as
one. E.g. while moving Windows by drag&drop, unintentional untouch events may occur.
Increasing this value prevents the Thin Client from interpreting this as two separate touches.
• Report Delay
Defines the time (in milliseconds), the screen must be touched to recognize it as a touch event.
• Baud Rate
Set the communication speed via the selected port. (In doubt, refer to your panel’s manual.)
• Touch Screen Interface Port
You can attach the Touch Screen to either COM1 or COM2. Set the selected port here.
• Set Driver-Specific Defaults
Click here once after changing the Touch Screen type or to reset the settings to its defaults.

8 bits per pixel (256 colors)
- 16 bits per pixel (High color / 65k colors)
- 24 bits per pixel (True color / 16,7million colors).
Note: Make sure that the display unit connected to the Thin Client supports the selected
settings! (In case you accidentally set it too high, refer section 4.2.3 “Emergency Boot”.)
Desktop Area and Refresh Frequency
• Physical Desktop Size and Frequency
Select the needed resolution from this menu. The available resolutions depend
on the previously chosen color depth and the hardware model of your thin
client.
• Virtual Desktop Size
The virtual resolution is used for panning. That means that the virtual screen is
bigger than the physical screen. So the “Virtual Desktop Size” can never be
smaller than the chosen entry of the “Physical Desktop Size”.
Note: Both of the desktop size entries but also the value of the color depth
depend on each other, as well as the used hardware (Thin Client model).
Screensaver and DPMS
• Blanking Screensaver
If the screensaver function is activated a blanking screensaver is used after the
period of time (in minutes) you have defined.
• DPMS

Advanced Display Settings
Depending on the Thin Client model, you may start up to four local X servers.
By default, the first X server is enabled and preconfigured. The settings in the dialog-box
“Display 1” are identical with the global display settings (see previous page).
Changes in display 1 will automatically be set in the global display page and vice versa.
“Display 2”, “Display 3” and “Display 4” are the corresponding pages of the three additional X
servers, which are disabled by default. (Not all models do in fact have four but only one
additional.)
The available dialog-boxes are all the same for the four displays (except the “Enable Display”
checkbox), so we used “Display 1” as reference for the descriptions.
Note: Remember that every display consumes a certain amount of memory! If your unit is low
on RAM, you must be careful here! In doubt, upgrade the installed RAM.
Resolution
• Access Control
If enabled (default) this option prevents other hosts to have access to your display.
(See also section 5.4.2.4 for details on how to grant access for specific hosts.)

DPMS
If your monitor supports “Display Power Management Signaling” it allows more functions
(energy saving) than just a screensaver.
There are three different modes called “Standby mode”, “Suspend mode” and “Off mode”,
which are activated after their adjustable time loops (in minutes) ran off.
Enabling DPMS with the default time settings activates the “power off mechanism” of the
monitor as follows:
After 10 minutes the display switches to "blank" (standby mode), after a further 10 minutes it
sets the first current savings level (suspend mode: Switch off the high voltage), and after further
10 minutes the monitor changes into the "Off" mode.
Note: All levels are passed through naturally only if the X server receives no new inputs during
this runtime.

Pager
The “Pager” dialog-box allows you to enable/disable the usage of multiple “Virtual Desktops” like

The “Pager“ is a window with “Virtual Screens” that you can use to easily move from one open
application to another. This window is displayed in the upper right corner of the desktop screen.
It could contain a single “Virtual Screen”, or a higher number of “Virtual Screens”.
By using the pager, you can for instance switch between full-screen Applications by one sole
mouse click.
To give a little example:
This exemplary pager contains three virtual desktops.
The first of them is active (dark gray) and shows the “Application Launcher” and the “Setup”. On
the second one is a full-screened browser window.
Two different local shells are running on number three.
Now instead of minimizing and maximizing all that sessions or toggling them via key
combinations, you simply mouse-click on the desired Screen and get back to it exactly like you
left it before (except after reboot).
Have a look at the tooltips in order to modify the pager to your needs.
Note: Enable the option “Stay always on top” to always have it on top of every window.
Note: All running sessions of all virtual screens will be accessible via the task bar in each of the
screens.

Network
Main Network Settings
The main “Network” page allows you to configure the network settings on the Thin Client side.
Automatic network set up by using DHCP and BOOTP protocols, but also manual network
configuration can be chosen.
• DHCP
DHCP stands for “Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol” and enables the Thin Client to extract
its IP-address, network mask, DNS, gateway and other network configurations from a DHCP
server.
• BOOTP
Using BOOTP allows the Thin Client to obtain the IP address, network mask, DNS, gateway
and other network configurations from a BOOTP server database.
Note: The transfer of either a setup.ini or boot script is supported. BOOTP is not used to get a
boot image from a server and to boot this image as the classical meaning of using BOOTP
suggests.
• Specify an IP Address
Click this button to set the network settings manually instead of looking for a DHCP server.
Make sure that the fixed IP you enter is not occupied by another machine in your network.
If you have to use a “Gateway” to route the data packets to and from the target network, click
the “enable” button and enter the gateway IP address.
• Terminal Name
Enter the local name of the Thin Client, otherwise the name “IGEL-<MAC-address>” will be
generated.
• DNS
Click “Enable DNS” button to configure the Domain Name System. Set the “Default Domain” the
unit should work in and the IP of up to two name servers, which will be queried one after the

settings in the “Network” page described before.
Now after you have entered the “Advanced Network Settings” section these settings are taken
over to the corresponding “Interface 1” dialog-box of the “LAN Interfaces” page.
There are three additional dialog-boxes to configure the optional “LAN Interfaces” as there are:
The configuration masks of Interface 2 and Tokenring are exactly the same as Interface 1
(except the network speed).
• Interface 2
If you installed an optional ethernet card in the available
PCI/ISA slot (only available in IGEL Thin Client series 400 and
500), use this dialog-box to configure the LAN interface called
“Interface 2”.
In case you encounter problems with the auto sense function
in your network, you can set a fixed network speed.
See the box to the right for possible speeds for both, Interface
1 and Interface 2.
• Tokenring
If you have installed an optional Token-Ring card in the
available PCI/ISA slots (only available in IGEL Thin Client
series 400 and 500) use this dialog-box to configure the LAN
interface called “Tokenring”.
As described above (“Interface 2”), you may set a fixed speed

Analog Modem
To set up a WAN connection with the Thin Client you can use an analog modem.
There are different modem types that can not be used with our Thin Clients. Especially so-called
WIN modems will not work. All external modems that are connected to the COM ports or
internal modems that can be configured to behave like an external modem will work. (If
possible, prefer modems with a “Rockwell” chip)
Note: Internal modems are only supported by IGEL Thin Clients Series 4000 and 5000.
The following dialog-box allows you to configure the basic modem settings and specific PPP
connections:
• Modem Port
Specify the serial port where the modem is connected. (Use COM 1 + COM2 for external
modems and COM 3 + COM 4 for internal modems)
• Port Speed
Specify the speed of the port where the modem is connected.
Note: This is not the speed of the modem, but the speed of the communication between modem
and Thin Client in baud. This means this speed should be set higher than the modem speed to
guarantee that data transfer can run at full modem speed.
• Dial Mode
Specify the dial mode of your phone line.
• Initstring
Specify a special initstring for your analog modem if the standard initstring does not work.
• Set Default Route
This option can be used to set the default route to the PPP connections.

(Only a few providers use the CHAP method although it is the
safer one because of the usage of encryption.)
• Automatic DNS
This option allows you to choose between automatic or manual DNS configuration.
If you choose manual configuration you have to enter the IP address of your provider’s
“Nameserver”.
• Automatic IP
This option allows choosing between automatic or manual IP address configuration. The default
setting is set to automatic, which means that the Thin Client gets its IP address dynamically
from the provider’s DHCP server. In case you have deactivated the automatic mode, you have
to enter the Thin Client’s “Local IP” and your provider’s “Server IP” manually.

ISDN/DSL combi card) and the U.S. Robotics PCI card. This feature is available only for the
IGEL Thin Client Series 4000 and 5000, which provide the additional PCI slot.
Note: Because the ISDN configuration is nearly the same as the modem configuration, we only
describe the differing or additional features / options below.

NFS
NFS (Network File System) enables you to share files via the network. The NFS server exports
a file system, and the NFS client (your Thin Client) associates this to a mount point of its own
file system. So afterwards the exported file system will be a logical part of the Thin Client’s file
system, while it physically remains on server side.
Note: To set up NFS mount, the server has to be configured first. For detailed information about
“NFS” refer to the corresponding “man pages” of your server operating system.

SMB
The SMB protocol is very useful because it is used by Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 95/98,
Windows 2000 and Window XP to share disks and printers. So as Unix (including Linux) can
also handle this protocol with the Samba suite tools, it is possible to share disks and printers
with Windows hosts.
So it is possible on the Thin Client to mount SMB shares from Windows or Unix Samba hosts.
Note: The SMB (Server Message Block) protocol is only used for sharing files over the network
(no printers). It is necessary that the shares you want to mount be created on the Windows or
Unix host first!
Click “Add…” to open the following “SMB Mount Entry” dialog-box:
SMB Mount Entry
• Local Mount Point
Specify the “Local Mount Point” where the share
should be mounted in the local file system of the

In case it does not succeed within the chosen time, the local configuration is used
• Disable on Update
This option is important for firmware updates.
Because a reboot takes place during the update process, there might be a serious mix-up of
configurations if the Thin Client still got its setup from remote. This could end up in a half
updated unit that has to be reconfigured completely or even worse.
Note: Leave the “Disable on Update” option untouched as long as you do not completely

(there are sub-directories named after the models, e.g. “3200_Compact” or
“5300_Premium”).
2) Unpack the *.zip file, as this is the usual way we provide updates.
3) Put all files into the designated directory on your local FTP server.
4) Enter the necessary settings (see below for details) and press “Update now”.
Now the update process will advance automatically.
Note: The default values ‘update.igel.de’ etc are exemplary only, you will not be able to update
directly from our FTP server!
The update procedure cannot be done via PPP /ISDN connections.
The following information must be provided in order to start the update process:
• Server Name
Enter the name or the IP address of the used FTP server.
• Server Path
Enter the name of the directory you stored the update files in (relatively from the FTP root
directory).
• User Name

Audio
The section Audio allows to set coding options and package size for audio data.
• Ringing Tone
Activate the ringing tone to be notified with an acoustic signal at incoming calls. If not activated
only the notification window will pop up.
• Preferred Codec
Choose a procedure for encoding of audio data from the list. The required bandwidth for each of
the available codecs is as follows:
G.711u :
GSM
:
iLBC
:
ca. 80 kBit/s - provides audio quality
comparable with ISDN (G.711a for US)
ca. 13 kBit/s - provides audio quality
comparable with mobile phones
ca. 15 kBit/s - high compression with
still good quality
• Size of Payload
Choose 80 or 160 milliseconds for size of data packages. A bigger payload decreases the
overhead during transmission (and increases the net data rate), but causes higher latencies as
well.

ICA (Global ICA Settings)
This section describes how to configure the “Global ICA Settings” that will be valid for all ICA
sessions.
Note: These are the default values for all ICA sessions. Most of these properties (especially
color depth, resolution and server IP or name) can be altered for each session separately (see
Section 6.4.6).
5.9.1
Window
• Default Number of Colors
You are allowed to set the default number of window colors to 256 (default), thousands (High
Color) or millions (True Color). The color depth your sessions can run in also depends on your
Metaframe server.
• Approximate Color
Because of differences in the color palettes used between the ICA Client (and the application it
displays) and the “Thin Client” desktop, an annoying flashing can occur when switching context
on a pseudo-color display. The ICA Client’s color approximation scheme eliminates this flashing
by using colors from the local desktop palette to display the ICA window session.
Enable “Approximate Color” to eliminate color flashing when switching context.
Note: This only applies if the X server is running in 8-bit color mode.
• Resolution
Set the default window size by adjusting the values for the “Default Horizontal Resolution”
and the “Default Vertical Resolution”.

Server Location
• Server Location
The “Server Location” (also called server browsing) provides a method for a network-connected
Citrix ICA Client to view a list of all Citrix servers and Published Applications that are accessible
on the network and using the chosen browsing protocol.
The default functionality for server location is “Auto-Locate” (broadcast). With the “Auto-Locate”
function the ICA Client broadcasts a “Get nearest Citrix server” packet. The address of the first
Citrix sever to respond then functions as the master ICA browser.
You can also specify a separate “Address List” for each network protocol (Browsing
Protocol), which could be “TCP/IP”,”TCP/IP + HTTP” or “SSL/TLS + HTTPS”.
• TCP/IP
If your network configuration uses routers or gateways, or to eliminate additional network traffic
by the broadcasts, you can set specific server addresses for the Citrix servers from which the
list of available servers and/or published applications should be requested.
Note: You can place more than one address in the “Address List” to continue allowing clients to
connect and function even if one or several of the servers is/are not available.
• TCP/IP + HTTP
You can also retrieve the information of available Citrix Servers and Published Applications
across a firewall by using TCP/IP + HTTP server location.
Note: “TCP/IP + HTTP” server location does not support the “Auto-Locate” function.
• SSL/TLS + HTTPS
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption provide server
authentication, encryption of data stream and message integrity checks.
Note: If you attempt to make a non-SSL/TLS connection to a SSL/TLS server, you will not be
connected and a “connection failed” message will be displayed.

Hotkey
Use the “Hotkey” page to define alternative key combinations for the common hotkeys used
within ICA sessions.
For example in MS Windows, the key combination <Alt>+<F4> closes the current window. It
also works within ICA sessions.
If you choose to disable the “Alternate switching sequence” (see 5.4.2.1), many of
these hotkey combinations will be occupied by the X Server (esp. <Alt>+<Fx>).
Therefore you will have to use the alternate sequences or map the affected
combinations to different ones here to keep them available.
Any <Alt> key combination not used by your X Window manager may still be used
as usual within the ICA session.
By default, the key alternatives are mapped to <Ctrl><Shift>+Key,
but you can change the definitions by clicking on the drop-down box
“Modifier on Client” and/or “Key on Client” of the particular
combination.
The two graphics to the right show the possible keys.
Note: If you want to use the PC key combination
<Ctrl><Alt><Delete> during the ICA session, use the key
combination <Ctrl><Alt><Enter> or <Ctrl><Alt><Return>.

Drive Mapping
“Drive Mapping“ makes any directory mounted on your Thin Client (including CD-ROMs and
floppy disk drives) available to you during ICA sessions on Citrix servers.
Use this page to specify which folders or drives to map at logon. This applies for all ICA
connection sessions.
• Activate Drive Mapping
This option allows you to temporarily enable/disable the drive mapping.
This gives you the advantage of not losing your stored settings, but being able to switch them
on/off.
Note: Local devices that are to be used for drive mapping first have to be configured as device!
(See 5.12.)
How to configure a “Drive Mapping”:
Enable one of the three mappings to activate the corresponding entry fields.
Then click on the corresponding button in the “Drive to map” column.
Now select the drive letter under which the local device or folder should be mapped.
In case the drive letter you selected is not available on the Citrix server anymore, the specified
directory or local drive will be mapped to the next free drive letter at logon.
In the “Local Drive Path” field, set the path name of the local directory
the mapping should point to.
When mapping a locally attached device, use the pre-defined path
names as offered by the drop-down box. These are the directories the
devices are mounted to by default at boot up.
(e.g. /autofs/floppy for a built-in floppy disk drive)
Finally specify the access rights for the mapping.
You can choose to grant “Read Access”, “Write access” or to “Ask User” for each mapping
separately.
(“Ask User” will prompt for read/write access on first access per ICA session.)
Note: The same drive mappings and access settings will apply to all ICA connections.

COM Ports
You can perform bi-directional mapping between serial devices that are attached to the Thin
Client (e.g. scanners, serial printers) and the Citrix Server’s COM ports.
This enables programs running on the server to exchange data with the local devices.
• COM Port Devices
Select the COM port your device is attached to from this
drop-down box:
/dev/ttyS0 stands for the local COM1 and /dev/ttyS1
stands for the local COM2. ttyS3 and ttyS4 are for
potential add-on cards plugged in the PCI/ISA slot, e.g.
internal modem (series 400 and 500 only).
Your selection will be mapped to the virtual COM1, a
second one will become virtual COM2 and so on.
Note: The behavior details of the local COM port have to be configured in “Devices” (see 5.12).
The configuration and its assignment on server side has to be done within Metaframe.

Printer
In this tab, you configure the printer for ICA sessions.
(For general printer configuration, see Section 5.13)
• Enable Client Printer Mapping
This feature makes the locally attached printer of the Thin Client available within your ICA
sessions (assuming that it’s not disabled from server side).
Because the Thin Client will only spool the incoming print jobs, you have to install the printer on
the server. This is done in the familiar way (‘Start’ –> ‘Settings’ –> ‘Printer’ and so on…).
The only thing you have to take care of is that you have to be logged in from the terminal the
printer is connected to as Administrator.
• Enable Printer Autocreation
Metaframe XP on Windows Servers provides the feature to automatically create
the printers when connecting to the server.
To use this function, the Thin Client has to provide information about the chosen
local printer (see 5.13) and the Microsoft Windows
printer driver name for it.
The default value for the driver name here is “Citrix
PCL4 Universal Driver”, because that works fine for
most printers and is usually installed on the Metaframe
Server anyway.
Note: Verify the configuration of the attached printer itself first (see 5.13)!

Firewall
This “Firewall” page allows you to configure ICA connections through a firewall or a SOCKS
proxy server. (Firewalls and SOCKS proxy servers are used on networks to improve security.)
• Use Alternate Address
If you are using ICA sessions to connect to a specific Citrix server behind a firewall, you have to
activate this option. The Citrix server (usually) has a different IP in the local network than from
the outside world.
(For details on server configuration, look up the “altaddr” command in your Metaframe admin
manual.)
Note: After enabling the alternate address, add the server in the “Address List” in the “Server
Location” box of the “Global ICA Settings” (see 5.9.2).
• Connect via SOCKS or Secure Proxy Server
You can configure the ICA sessions to connect to a
Citrix server through a SOCKS proxy server or a
Citrix Secure Gateway (in relay mode).
Note: To make the “Secure Gateway” field accessible, the “Browser Protocol” in the “Server
Location” tab (see 5.9.2) has to be set to “SSL/TLS + HTTPS”

• Allow Backing Store
Press this button to use the X server backing store functionality for hidden desktop windows.
• Disable Window Alert Sounds
Use this option to disable Windows Alert Sounds.
• Caching
Here you can manipulate the settings for the Bitmap Cache.
This may considerably improve the performance of your ICA session(s) if you are working with
pictures that are displayed over and over again.
Set the maximum size of local system memory (in kilobytes) to be used for caching and the
minimum size of bitmaps to be cached and the directory the files should be stored locally.
Note: A too high setting might leave the Thin Client with too low memory for its system and
other applications! In doubt, you have the possibility of adding RAM to your Thin Client.
• Scrolling Control
Depending on the speed of your network or answering time of your server, you may encounter
the effect (e.g. in EXCEL) that there is a delay between releasing the mouse button from a scroll
bar and stopping scrolling locally.
Setting a value of 100 or above here will probably eliminate this.

LPD (Line Printer Daemon) printers are used by the BSD print system, which is the standard
printing method in UNIX environments and is also supported by Windows NT and Windows
2000.
• List of LPD Printers
There are four pre-configured LPD printers by default, named lp+lp_lp, lp_com1, lp_com2 and
lp_usb. These queues belong to the corresponding interfaces of the Thin Client and are “readyto-use”.
Usually, there is no further configuration needed here, especially if your printer is attached to the
LPT1 interface (default printer).
• Add…
You can add a network printer here. Provide the print server’s name or IP and the name of the
remote printer / print queue (for details on all printer settings, see next page).
• Modify…
Click here to manipulate the pre-configured printers or potentially added ones (see next page).
• Set default
Mark the printer that’s supposed to be your default output device within the “List of LPD
Printers” and click on “set default”. The selected printer will automatically be assigned to the
queue “lp” within /etc/printcab. You may use “lp” when printing to your default printer.
Note: In Linux you normally have to make these changes within the file /etc/printcab manually.
This is not necessary with your Thin Client; all changes can be made in the setup masks here
and will be transferred into the /etc/printcab almost immediately.
Do not edit the /etc/printcab manually anymore! Your changes will be overwritten by further
changes made via the setup or get lost at the latest during the next reboot of the Thin Client.

5.14 Security
To prevent any unauthorized ‘trespassing’ into the Thin Client’s setup (which could enable to
intrude deeper into your network), it is highly recommended to set an administrator password
after the initial configuration.
To allow limited configurations by the user, you can use an additional user password that offers
most variable options (explained in detail in 5.14.2 on next page).
5.14.1 Password
The “Password” page allows you to set an
administrator password and a user password.
• Administrator Password
By clicking on “User Password”, this dialog box will pop
up prompting you to enter the administrator password.
Note: Enabling this password will restrict the “Config” tab of
the “Application Launcher”, the shell access in an “Xterm”
and on the console to the administrator at once!
• User Password
The same procedure as for the administrator password
applies here.
See the dialog-box to the right; it comes up when entering the
setup after both passwords have been set.
Note: To enable the user password option, an administrator password has to be set first.
Attention: Make sure that the right key mapping is enabled when typing in any password!
Because the typed characters in the password fields are masked by asterisks, you will
not see if, for instance, ‘x’ and ‘y’ are mixed up. After changing the key mapping later on,
you will wonder why your password is not accepted anymore…

The administrator can completely define which areas of the setup are visible and configurable
by the user. The “Input Page” and the “Display Page” are enabled by default. “Advanced Display
Settings” and “Advanced Network Settings” are sub-menus of these but have to be enabled
separately.
Without further configuration, the user’s default setup will look like this:
Enabling all options giving the user the most influence possible will look like this:
“Security” and “Registry” will always be restricted to the administrator only!

5.14.7 Hotkeys
There are certain hotkeys recognizable by the kernel to call the setup.
In some circumstances, this might be the only way to get into setup without using emergency
boot.
As you see right, the hotkey is by default only activated for the XDMCP
mode. If you want to have it always on or always off, you can set this
here.
<CTRL> + <ALT> is the fixed modifier for the setup hotkey. The default
associated key is <S>, which means that pressing <CTRL>+<ALT>+<S>
calls the setup in XDMCP mode if you do not manipulate the default
settings.
To change the associated key, simply click the “Learn Hotkey” button and press the wanted key
when prompted.
Another hotkey is available for free configuration. You may, for example, assign an ICA session
to it.

The “Application Launcher” is the central administration tool for all kinds of available session
types (which depend on your Thin Client model; please refer to the Feature Comparison Table
on page 2)
The “Application Launcher” consists of two main pages named “Applications” and “Config”,
and the information page “About”.
6.1
About
Most of the vital system information is shown on this page.
Before you execute a firmware update, you should consult this page to ensure that you
download the appropriate update package (updates are normally stored in
ftp.igel.de/pub/firmware/<model>).
In case of a support issue, the firmware version is also most important. The graphics chipset
may also be quite helpful.
Note: The value of the display “Memory Size” is the total RAM minus the amount reserved for
the VGA.

“Applications” Page (Starting Sessions)
The “Applications” page gives you an overview of the configured sessions.
From here, you can launch your sessions by marking the connection to launch and either
double clicking it or hitting the “Start” button in the low left corner.
You may also use desktop icons or the start menu to launch your sessions.
The “Application Launcher” has the advantage that, in the “Status” tab, you also see which
sessions are currently running.
6.2.1
“Reboot” or “Shutdown” the Thin Client
In the lower right corner, you find a “Reboot” and a “Shutdown” button.
(You may reconfigure / eliminate them; see Chapter 5.14.2.)
Use them to execute the corresponding function.
Before doing so, the system will ask for your confirmation or
cancellation.
Note: When rebooting or shutting down, your currently running sessions will be disconnected or
reset.
This may cause data loss and / or truncated idle sessions on your server.

It also gives you a total overview of all configured and configurable
sessions and their attributes.
6.3.1
Add, Edit or Delete Sessions
• Add (a new session)
Pressing the “Add” button opens up this “Session Type” dialog-box:
Select the session type you want to add and confirm with “ok”.
Now the new session will be added to the “Config” page and the
appropriate setup program of the selected session type will be started.
Note: The available session types in this menu depend on the Thin Client model! (Refer to the
“Software Feature Comparison Table”)
• Edit (an already configured session)
Select the session you want to change and press the “Edit” button. The appropriate session
setup appears on the screen and you can start modifying.
• Delete
Select the session you want to delete and hit the “Delete” button. The session entry will be
removed right away and the “Application Launcher” will be refreshed.
• Configure Startup
With the additional “Configure Startup” button you have the possibility of
changing the startup type of any configured session without entering its
configuration itself. Mark the session from the list, press the “Configure
Startup” button and select the wanted startup type in this dialog box:
•
The autostart function enables the session to be started automatically at boot time.
•
The restart function causes a session to be reconnected to the server immediately after
logout.
Useful if multiple users use the same thin client and each logs on with his own user and
password.

Session Configuration
This section describes the individual setups of the available session types.
The most common place for all session configurations is the “Application Launcher”.
As mentioned earlier, you may also do this in the “Sessions” tab (Chapter 5.7) within the setup.
•
Title
Every session has a “Title” tab like this to set name, reachability and startup.
Because this is quite important for the overall handling, it’s explained first.
• Session Name
Enter the name you want the session to be called. By default, every session will be named after
its type.
It’s not necessary to rename it but if you have more than one session of the same kind, it will be
quite helpful.
• Enable in Startmenu
The session will appear in the startmenu, which opens up if you
press the “IGEL” start button in the lower left corner of the desktop.
• Enable in Pulldown Menu
If you click anywhere on a free space on the desktop with the right
mouse button, a menu such as this will come up. By enabling this
option, your session will appear here as well.
• Enable on Desktop
The session will appear on the desktop as an icon.
• Enable in Application Launcher
The session will be available in the “Applications” tab of the “Application Launcher”.
• Use Hotkey
Here you may define a hotkey to start the session.

ICA
Most of the settings have already been explained in Chapter 5.9 “ICA (Global ICA
Settings)” across
several pages, so we keep a bit briefer here. Many of the settings adjusted in the “ICA
(Global ICA Settings)” are the defaults for new sessions (called “global defaults” below).
Note: The very first source of further details regarding ICA and Metaframe should always be the
corresponding documentation from Citrix. This manual only gives some general configuration
hints.
Server
• Browser Protocol
Select the needed protocol for
broadcast or use the global
default set in 5.9.2 (“Server
Location”).
By activating the “Don’t use
default server location“
checkbox, you can override
the default server for each
protocol separately.
• Server
By pressing the “Browse”
button, you release a
broadcast signal asking for all
available servers and
Published Applications.
In the example above you see one server and two Published Applications:
•
Selecting the server will connect the user to the full desktop as if logging in in front of the
server itself, providing all applications, rights and settings specified in his user profile (local
server profile).
•
Choosing one of the Published Applications means that the session will end up in a
window containing that one application only and the session will disconnect if you close that
application.
You may also enter the IP or the hostname of the server manually into the “Server” field.
Application

• Compress
Use data compression to reduce the amount of data transferred across the ICA session.
This lowers the network traffic at the expense of CPU performance.
If you connect your server(s) through WAN, it’s recommended to use the compression. If your
server is a bit weak and you’re in a LAN only, disable this option.
• Persistent Cache Enabled
You have the option to enable the cache (configured in the global ICA settings; see Chapter
5.9.9) for any session. This is useful when using several ICA sessions but only one or two are
critical regarding network bandwidth or are heavily used during the day. In that case, you should
reserve the cache for those sessions.
• Encryption Level
Encryption increases the security of your ICA connection. By default,
basic encryption is enabled, so ensure that the Citrix server supports
RC5 encryption before you choose any higher encryption level.
• Client Audio
If enabled, the system sounds and audio from your applications will be transmitted to the Thin
Client and emitted out of attached speakers.
The higher the audio quality you choose, the more bandwidth is required to transfer the audio
data.
Speedscreen Latency Reduction
“Speedscreen Latency Reduction” improves performance over high latency connections by
providing instant feedback to the client in response to keystrokes or mouse clicks.
Both improve the user’s sense of sitting in front of a normal PC.
• Mouse click Feedback
This provides visual feedback of a mouse click by immediately changing the mouse pointer into
an hourglass indicator.
•
Local Text Echo
Accelerates display of the input text, effectively shielding you from experiencing latency on the
network.
Select a mode from the dropdown list:
• Set the mode to “ON” for slower connections (connection over a WAN) to decrease the
delay between user input and screen display.
• Set the mode to “OFF” for faster connections (connection over a LAN).
• Set the mode to “AUTO” if you are not certain of the connection speed.
Note: Speedscreen has to be enabled and configured on the Citrix server first in order to work.

Private Color Map
If the color depth of the X-Server is set to 256 Colors, possibly too few colors will be left
available for the RDP session, causing graphics malfunction.
Having the “Private Color Map” enabled eliminates this behavior by forcing RDP to use its own
separate color map.

This dropdown list allows you to choose between different forms of syntax for the “display”
option that depends on the application type you want to start.
The display number (in this example 192.168.0.179:0.0) will be added to the command line
automatically.
Important Note:
Because of the strict access restrictions on all UNIX systems, you have to make sure that all the
necessary configurations (e.g. editing the files /etc/hosts.equiv and/or .rhosts) on the Unix host
are made to allow rsh access from the terminal.
Also the terminal display has an access control that is activated by default. If you disable this
“Access Control” it would be possible for everybody from any UNIX host to have access to your
terminals display.
To allow a host to have access to the terminals display, its name (not the IP address) must be
added into a “List of Trusted X Hosts”. (Please refer to section 5.4.2.4).
Note: For detailed information about RSH and its authentication methods, please refer to the

Options
• Enable X11 Connection Forwarding
X11 connections will be automatically forwarded to the remote side in such a way that any X11
program started from the shell (or command) will go through the encrypted ssh channel. The
authentication data will also be set automatically. This option is enabled by default.
• Enable compression
Use compression to reduce the amount of data transferred across the data channel. Default
disabled
• Force Protocol Version
You must prove your identity to the remote host using one of several identification methods that
depend on the protocol version used. This section allows you to force the protocol version after
you have decided what method of identification will be used.
Note: For detailed information about SSH and its different authentication methods please refer
to the corresponding “man pages” of your server operating system.
