DXR2-iP QSG v1 - Amulet Hotkey
DXR2-iP / iPM Zero Client
Overview
The zero client forms part of a PCoIP® system. It provides connections for
standard desktop peripherals: monitor(s), USB keyboard and mouse, stereo
audio I/O and a wide range of other USB devices.
The second part of a PCoIP system is the ‘Host’ which is located in or near to a
remote computer (workstation or server). The zero client and remote host
communicate using a standard IP connection (LAN or WAN).
In the Box
Unless ordered in bulk, the zero client will be supplied complete with an external
power supply and appropriately localised IEC leads. Depending on the model,
there may also be video adaptor cables.
Manuals and updates
Full operating instructions and the latest firmware updates are available from
the Amulet Hotkey website.
Preparation
There are two ways to configure PCoIP devices:
●
●
The On Screen Display(OSD) - zero clients only
The Administrative Web Interface (AWI) - hosts and zero clients
Either can be used to configure and inspect device settings. The OSD appears
when a monitor is connected to a zero client and power is first applied. The AWI
can be accessed via a network using any browser to navigate to the IP address
of the zero client or PCoIP host.
DHCP is on by default. The zero client will attempt to acquire an IP address for
up to two minutes. If, after this time, it fails to find one, the following default
address is adopted: 192.168.1.50/24 The default password for all Amulet
Hotkey PCoIP devices is: ahkdante
It is important that both the PCoIP host and zero client are running the same
version of firmware. The AWI can be used to check firmware versions and
install updates.
Indicators
The zero client is fitted with multi-colour front panel status indicators. A range
of information can be communicated using these indicators and the following
table gives a complete reference.

Connections
If only one monitor is to be used, connect this to video output 1. A USB
keyboard and mouse must be used and these can be connected to any two
of the front panel USB ports. Connect to a network using a standard patch
cable. For redundancy, some models have dual network connections. Only
one needs to be connected for the system to work. The second port can be
used to provide an alternate signal path for redundancy or can be used to pass
network traffic through to another device. Models fitted with sockets for SFP
modules: please fit the modules prior to powering the zero client. Note that
when both network ports are used it may be necessary to use Spanning Tree
to prevent the creation of a data loop.
Connecting to a hardware PCoIP host.
With a monitor connected to port one power the zero client and:
1 Click on the Options menu (top left of OSD)
2 Select ‘Configuration’ from the drop down menu
3 Select the ‘Discovery’ tab. Ensure bottom box is unchecked.
4 Select the ‘Session’ tab. Set session type to PCoIP. Enter the IP
address of the remote PCoIP host (MAC address is only required if
the remote host is enforcing MAC address checking - off by default).
5 Click on OK then press the Connect button.
Notes on hardware connection:
1 If a live PCoIP session is in progress, the zero client will not display its OSD.
2 The network icon on the bottom right of the connect screen shows the status
of the network connection. A red ‘X’ over the network icon indicates that the
the network is not properly connected or still being initialised.
3 The zero client must be properly configured before the Connect button on
this screen will work.
4 It may be necessary to click the unlock button and enter a password before
being allowed to make changes to the settings in these tabs.
Connecting to a software PCoIP host.
With a monitor connected to port one power the zero client and:
1 Click on the Options menu (top left of OSD)
2 Select ‘Configuration’ from the drop down menu
3 Select the ‘Session’ tab.
4 Change the connection type to View Connection Server.
5 Insert the FQDN or IP address of the View Connection Server.
6 Click Apply and OK and then select Connect from the the OSD.
Notes on connecting to a software host:
1 If a live PCoIP session is in progress, the zero client will not display its OSD.
2 The Connect screen is shown on startup except when the client has been
configured for auto-reconnect.
3The network icon on the bottom right of the connect screen shows the status
of the network connection. A red ‘X’ over the network icon indicates that the
the network is not properly connected or still being initialised.
3 The zero client must be properly configured before the Connect button on
this screen will work.
Ending a PCoIP session
To end a PCoIP session, simply press the disconnect switch on the front of the
zero client. Connection settings are recorded in the zero client so that the next
time it is powered up, all that is needed is for the Connect button to pressed.
