Mouse
39
●
VPN (L2TP)
●
Ethernet (PPPoE)
Dial-up connection
You can use a dial-up modem with the thin client to access a dial-up server. This method provides two
ways to access the enterprise intranet:
●
An enterprise dial-up server connects directly 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 Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) Virtual Private
Network (VPN) server that connects to the enterprise intranet.
NOTE: The dial-up server must be a Microsoft Remote Access Server or another server that supports
industry-standard protocols.
Direct connection
This type of connection allows you to connect directly to another computer through the serial port on
the terminal.
NOTE:
This option is available only to thin clients with serial ports.
Virtual Private Network (PPTP) connection
Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) is a network protocol that enables the secure transfer of data
between a remote client (in this case the thin client) and an enterprise server environment by creating
a 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 the thin client reside.
Access to the internet requires an Internet Service Provider (ISP). You may use any of the standard
means of connecting to the ISP, such as a dial-up modem, cable modem, or DSL modem.
You must first establish the connection to the ISP, before contacting the enterprise PPTP VPN server.
This includes dial-up access as well as direct access through the cable modem and DSL modem paths.
Virtual Private Network (L2TP) connection
Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) merges Microsoft’s PPTP protocol with Cisco’s Layer Two
Forwarding (L2F) protocol. L2TP is basically the same as PPTP; the primary difference is that L2TP
supports encryption.
PPP Over Ethernet (PPPoE) connection
This is a connection from the thin client Ethernet port directly to the enterprise intranet. No additional
hardware is required.
In this configuration all network services may be used, including the enterprise DHCP server. A DHCP
server on the network may provide not only the terminal’s IP address, but also the location of the file
server containing the software updates.

Settings for VNC Server
Configure VNC Server on your thin client by selecting the following:
Check Box
Explanation
Prompt local user to accept incoming
connections
The default should be ENABLED and Auto Accept should be ENABLED
Enable Viewer Cursor
This setting allows the viewer to show its cursor on the screen while moving the
mouse. The viewer shows a small dot that points to the actual location of the “hot
spot” of the remote cursor location. Enabling this setting will show the local cursor
of the viewer; however, the remote dot will lag behind the local viewer cursor as it
tries to synchronize the local viewer cursor.
Accept input events from clients
Enabling this setting will allow the viewer to control the keyboard and mouse of the
unit remotely.
Autoport Select
This setting will be devalued, leaving only the “Accept connections on port” and
“Allow HTTP connections on port”.
Accept connections on port
Defaults to the standard VNC port of 5900.
Allow HTTP connections on port
Defaults to the standard VNC port of 5800 for JVM (Java)-enabled Web Browser
Viewers.
NOTE:
Windows CE does not support Java.
You can find additional information about VNC Server features at: http://www.realvnc.com/
documentation.html.

to the keyboard input.
●
RDP supports operation in any environment that allows network localization, automatic disconnect,
and remote configuration.
●
Variable bandwidth allocation through client-side bitmap caching and optional compression for lowbandwidth connections, significantly improving performance over low-bandwidth connections.
●
Multichannel-capable protocol that permits separate virtual channels for carrying presentation data,
serial-device communication, licensing information, and heavily encrypted data.
●
Remote control which lets the support staff view and control a Terminal Services session. Sharing
input and display graphics between two Terminal Services sessions lets support staff diagnose
and resolve problems remotely.
●
Network Load Balancing (NLB), available in Windows 2000 Advanced Server and Datacenter
Server.
●
High color 8-bit, 16-bit, and 24-bit graphics are supported if they are also supported in the graphics
driver.
●

clipboard viewer chain in the remote session, allowing the user to copy and paste between
applications running in both the remote session and on the local client.
Programs
67
●
Local-printer redirection so server applications can print locally to the client device.
●
Local audio playback so server applications can direct audio to the client device or play at the
Terminal Server.
●
Local-port redirection so server applications can use parallel and COM ports of the client device.
●
Local drive redirection so server applications can use the file system (including ATA) of the client
device.
●
File redirection filter that permits exposing only specific directories. If you specify that only external
storage, such as Compact Flash or USB storage, be exposed through the redirected drive,
information is saved only to the redirected drive.

Control Panel programs, such as the Enterprise Web Pad. It requires that RDP client be in the runtime image.
RDP now runs in Graphics, Windowing, and Events Subsystem (GWES) rather than in its own process
space. This provides faster display updates by reducing the protected server library (PSL) and kernel
overhead. RDP running in GWES can improve performance up to 30%.
NOTE: If you configured RDP to run in GWES, you cannot run RDP inside a Web browser. Optionally,
you can configure RDP to run in Microsoft ActiveX Control.

Registry Import/Export
ATTENTION: When deploying an image and settings from a “source” or “master” thin client to a “target”
thin client, please make sure that source/master and target thin clients have identical hardware. This is
applicable regardless of deployment method being used: HP ThinState Tools, Altiris Deployment
Solution, HP OpenView Client Configuration Manager, or any other deployment solution being used.
This chapter explains how to import/export a thin client registry using Altiris Deployment Server. For
more information about Altiris, see http://www.altiris.com/.
For information about installing an Altiris BootWorks partition, see http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/
support/SupportManual/c00215445/c00215445.pdf.
The Registry Import/Export tool is an HP-engineered software technology that makes it significantly
easier and more cost efficient to manage HP thin clients. Registry Import/Export allows thin client devices
to inherit properties of other thin client devices. Extracting the settings of one device and redeploying
the same settings to other devices reduces network congestion. Registry settings can be 100 to 10,000
times smaller than the entire image.
Please note the following about the Registry Import/Export tool:
●
The tools requires extensive knowledge of Altiris Deployment Server.
●
The source and target machine must have the same image with the same quantity of software addons, and the software add-ons must be of the same revision. The Registry Import/Export Tool
cannot upgrade or downgrade application versions.
●
The import/export process may take approximately two minutes to complete.
CAUTION: Currently, Registry Import/Export between the HP Compaq t5510 thin client and the HP
Compaq t53x0 and t5500 thin clients is not supported.
Clearing the destination registry
Before importing a new registry to a thin client, you must clear the destination machine registry. To clear
the registry, drag and drop CE_RegReset from the Job window to the Destination Computer. Completion
of this process takes two to three minutes.
72
Chapter 6 Registry Import/Export
Exporting and importing a registry
To export a registry:
1.
Open the Deployment Server Console.
2.
Select CE_RegExport from the Job window and drag and drop the Job to the source unit under
the Computers window. This copies the source computer’s registry and prepares it for import.
3.
Select CE_RegImport from the Job window and drag and drop the job to the destination computer
under the Computers window. This imports the settings from the source computer to the destination
computer.
Importing a registry to multiple units
You can import a single registry to multiple units. To import a registry to multiple units:
1.
Select CE_RegExport from the Job window and drag and drop the Job to the source unit under
the Computers window. This copies the source computer’s registry and prepares it for import.
2.
Select CE_RegImport from the Job window and drag and drop the job to “All Computers” under
the Computers window. This imports the settings from the source computer to the network.
Exporting registries from multiple units
While it is possible to export registries from multiple thin clients, it is important to ensure the registry files
have different names. The export process saves a time stamp as part of the name for the saved file (for
example, 051306840.reg, which is May 13, 2006 at 8:40). If you export multiple units at the same time,
the registry file names will be identical. To create distinct file names for each registry, HP recommends
that you capture each registry a minute apart.
