Introduction
Thin clients running Dell Wyse ThinOS firmware are designed solely for optimal thin client security and performance. These efficient
purpose-built thin clients are virus and malware resistant and offer ultrafast access to applications, files and network resources within Citrix,
Microsoft, VMware and Dell vWorkspace environments, and other leading infrastructures. ThinOS based thin clients are self-managed, go
from power-on to fully productive in seconds, and with no published API, locally accessible file system or browser, require no local McAfee
Anti-Virus software or firewall to protect against viruses or malware.

•
Configuring Thin Client Settings and Connection Settings
•
Connecting to a Printer
•
Connecting to a Monitor
•
Locking the Thin Client
•
Signing Off and Shutting Down
•
Additional Getting Started Details
NOTE:
ThinOS is centrally managed and configured using INI files to automatically push updates and any desired default configuration to all
supported thin clients in your environment — see Central Configuration: Automating Updates and Configurations.
If no INI files are detected, you can use local dialog boxes on each thin client to make available configurations. ThinOS will save many of
these locally configured settings such as resolution, mouse, and keyboard to persist after reboot. However, once INI files are detected,
rebooting causes ThinOS to become stateless while ignoring locally configured settings after a reboot and then the settings contained
in the INI file will be used.

Accessing System Information
Connecting to a Remote Server
On your initial connection to central configuration, we recommended that you connect using a wired connection plug in the networkconnected Ethernet cable to your thin client before starting the thin client to obtain the configurations desired by the administrator. This
wired connection will also provide any wireless configurations provided by the administrator through INI files.
If you must initially connect to central configuration through wireless, use the Wireless tab in the Network Setup dialog box to enter the
SSID and encryption configurations required or set up by the network administrator. For more information, see Configuring the Network
Settings.
8
Getting Started: Quickly Learning the Basics
Central Configuration — If you are configured for automatic detection using INI files — see Dell Wyse ThinOS INI Guide , your thin client
will automatically detect and connect to the configured remote services during the boot-up process. Press the power button to turn on
your thin client to see the Login dialog box. Enter your User name, Password, and Domain, and then click Login. After authentication is
successful, your available connections are presented.
NOTE:
Although the thin client will default to the Classic Desktop for INI backward compatibility, you can configure the thin client to display
the Zero Desktop by using the SysMode=VDI parameter in the INI files or by selecting the desktop option in the dialog box. For more
information, see Using Your Desktop.
Manual Connection — If you are not yet set up for central configuration, you will see the Zero Toolbar, where you can configure the initial
server connection you want using the Remote Connections dialog box before you can log in. For more information, see Connecting to a
Remote Server manually.
You only need to complete this manual configuration once or after reboot to factory defaults. After the thin client knows the location of
your server, it automatically connects to the server for login when you start the thin client in the future. After you confirm that your
environment is ready for deployment, you can create INI files for central configuration.
Connecting a Remote Server Manually
To connect a Remote Server manually, complete the following tasks:
1
Click the System Settings icon on the Zero Toolbar to open the System Settings menu, and then click Remote Connections to open
the Remote Connections dialog box.
2
Click the Broker Setup tab of the Remote Connections dialog box to configure one of the following connections:
•
ICA or RDP connection —Select None, select ICA or RDP, click Configure Connection, and then follow the wizard.
•
A specific broker server connection — Select Microsoft, Citrix Xen, Dell vWorkspace, VMware View, Amazon WorkSpaces or
Other, and then enter the IP Address for the server in the Broker Server box.
NOTE: For more details, see Configuring the Remote
Connections.
3
Click OK, and then restart the thin client.
Click the Shutdown icon on the Zero Toolbar to open, and use the Shutdown dialog box to restart the thin client.
NOTE:
•
If an ICA or RDP connection is configured— After thin client restarts, click the Home icon on the Zero Toolbar to open the list
of available connections. Click the ICA or RDP connection you created, and then log in.
•
If a specific Broker Server connection is configured— After thin client restart, the Login dialog box appears for your server.
Enter the User name, Password, and Domain and click Login. After authentication is successful, your Zero Toolbar is
presented with your assigned connections defined by the broker server.
Using Your Desktop
What you see after logging on to the server depends on the administrator configurations.
•
Users with a Classic Desktop - will see the classic ThinOS desktop with full taskbar, desktop, and Connect Manager familiar to ThinOS
users. This option is the default out-of-the-box experience and is recommended for terminal server environments with published
applications and for backward compatibility with ThinOS 6.x versions. For more information on using the Classic Desktop, see Classic
Desktop Features.
•
Users with a Zero Desktop - will see the Zero Desktop with the Zero Toolbar showing the assigned list of connections from which to
select. This option is recommended for VDI and any full-screen only connections. For more information on using the Zero Desktop, see
Zero Desktop Features.
Getting Started: Quickly Learning the Basics

In any desktop case, you can select the desktop option you want (Classic Desktop or Zero Desktop) and create the connections you need
using the Visual Experience tab on the Remote Connections dialog box.
To open the Remote Connections dialog box, perform one of the following tasks:
•
Classic Desktop — Click User Name , and then select System Setup > Remote Connections.
•
NOTE: User Name is the user who is logged-on and is located at the lower-left pane of the taskbar

Configuring Thin Client Settings and Connection
Settings
While the use of INI files is recommended to configure thin client settings and connection settings available to users , see How to Set Up
Automatic Updates and Configurations, you can use dialog boxes on a thin client to:
•
Set up your thin client hardware, look and feel, and system settings, see Configuring Thin Client Settings Locally.
•
Configure connection settings, see Configuring Thin Client Settings Locally.
Connecting to a Printer
To connect a local printer to your thin client, be sure you obtain and use the correct adapter cables which are not included. Before use, you
may need to install the driver for the printer by following the printer driver installation instructions. For information on connecting to
printers, see Configuring the Printer Setup.
Connecting to a Monitor
Depending on your thin client model, connections to monitors can be made using either a VGA (analog) monitor port, a DVI (digital) monitor
port, or a DisplayPort (digital) and the proper Dell monitor cables/splitters/adapters. For information on configuring dual display settings,
see Configuring the Display Settings.
NOTE:
For dual-monitor supported thin clients— when using a DVI to DVI/VGA splitter, ensure that the DVI monitor will be the primary
monitor; when using a DisplayPort, ensure that the DisplayPort monitor will be the primary monitor.
Locking the Thin Client
To help ensure that no one else can access your private information without permission, ThinOS allows you to lock your thin client so that
credentials are required to unlock and use the thin client after you do one of the following:
•
Unplug a signed-on smart card — If an administrator has set SCRemovalBehavior=1for the signing parameter in the INI files and
you unplug the smart card that you used to sign on to the thin client, then the thin client will lock. To unlock the thin client for use, you
must use the same smart card and your correct PIN. Note that removing a signed-on smart card can also cause the thin client to logoff, if an administrator has set the INI files to do so in this case you must sign-on as usual to use the thin client.
•
Use Lock Terminal from the Shortcut Menu and Shutdown dialog box — On the Classic Desktop, right-click on the desktop and
select Lock Terminal, or use the Shutdown dialog box, see Classic Desktop Features. On the Zero Desktop, use the Shutdown dialog
box, see Signing Off and Shutting Down. To use the thin client, you must use your correct password.
•
Use the screen saver — If an administrator has set LockTerminal=2 for the ScreenSaver parameter in the INI files and you use
the screen saver, then the thin client will lock. To open the thin client for use, you must use your correct password.
Signing Off and Shutting Down
Use the Shutdown dialog box to select the available option you want:
10
Getting Started: Quickly Learning the Basics
•
Classic Desktop — Click Shutdown in the Connect Manager or Desktop Menu.

c
d
Enter the URL address of the DNS Domain in the DNS Domain box.
Enter the IP address of the DNS Server in the DNS Server box.
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 is 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 replace any locally configured values. If the DHCP server does not supply these values, the locally configured values will be
used.
e
NOTE: You can enter up to 16 DNS Server addresses, separated by a semicolon, comma, or space. The first address is
for the primary DNS server and the rest are secondary DNS servers or backup DNS servers .
Enter the IP address of the WINS Server in the WINS Server box.
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

is 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 attempts to resolve the name
using DNS first and then WINS.
f
3
You can enter two WINS Server addresses (primary and secondary), separated by a semicolon, comma, or space.
Enter the digit multiplier of 30 seconds in the TCP Timeout box to set the time-out value of a TCP connection. The value must
be 1 or 2 which means the connection time-out value is from 1x30= 30 seconds to 2x30= 60 seconds. If the data for connecting
to the server is not acknowledged and the connection is time out, setting the time-out period retransmits the sent data and
again tries to connect to the server till the connection is established.

provide information. Any value provided by the DHCP server replaces any value entered locally on the Options tab, however,
locally entered values are used if the DHCP server fails to provide replacement values.
Configuring the Connectivity
•
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 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. The network administrator must provide this value.
•
c
d
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.

boxes.
Click properties and use the following guidelines:
•
Wait DHCP — Selecting this option enables your thin client to wait for IPV6 DHCP before the sign-in, if not selected the
system will only wait for IPV4 DHCP if enabled.
•
Dynamically allocated over DHCP/BOOTP — Selecting this option enables your thin client to automatically receive
information from the DHCP server. The network administrator must configure the DHCP server (using DHCP options) to
provide information. Any value provided by the DHCP server replaces any value entered locally on the Options tab, however,
locally entered values are used if the DHCP server fails to provide replacement values.
•
Statically specified IP Address — Select this option to manually enter the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.

VMware Horizon View broker and PCoIP
VMware Horizon View Broker timeout— The VMware Horizon View Broker timeout does not force the user to sign out from the broker
anymore when the secure tunnel is enabled.
In earlier version of ThinOS, when the broker times out, the user session is disconnected and the user is logged out from the broker. From
ThinOS 8.2 release, ThinOS disconnects the user session from the broker, but does not force user logout. This is because the user has local
connections other than the broker desktop, and these connections are active when the broker timeout is reached.
PCoIP session NUM/CAP keyboard status synchronizes with session instead of thin client—This is applicable for session startup only.
The PCoIP session keyboard NUM/ CAP status synchronizes from remote session to client, whereas RDP/ ICA synchronize status from
local to remote session.
For example,
1
Set keyboard NUM=off in current PCoIP session.
2
Disconnect the session.
3
Set client keyboard NUM=on.
4
Reconnect to the PCoIP session.
5
The keyboard NUM status in both session and client is updated to NUM=off.
RDS desktop through PCoIP—You can view and connect to the Remote Desktop Service (RDS) desktop through the PCoIP protocol in
the broker using PCoIP enabled ThinOS clients. In VMware Horizon View 6.0 and later versions, the RDS desktop has RDP and PCoIP

Introduction to HealthCast
HealthCast Single Sign-On (SSO) solution is designed to improve user convenience, streamline workflow, and strengthen security
compliance in demanding environments. The same proximity cards used for physical access are used to tap-in and tap-out of unique user
sessions and to tap-over any sessions unintentionally left open on the ThinOS devices. Typically, you must type in your password only one
time each day and use your proximity cards to streamline workflow and save time as they move between shared computers securely. Also,
proximity cards can be secured with a PIN, if configured by the organization. The HealthCast SSO solution also supports user self-service
password reset so that you can reset your own passwords without the need to call the help desk.
NOTE: HealthCast SSO Solution on ThinOS is a client-server solution. ThinOS provides the client-side functionality, but you
must also install and configure the HealthCast Server components on a server system in order for the solution to work properly.
Contact HealthCast on HealthCast website for one or more server installation executables, server requirements, and
configuration information.

If the printer is attached to another thin client on your network, the entry in the LPD Hosts box is the name or address of that
thin client.
LPD Queue Name — An LPD host maintains a named queue for each supported printer. Enter the name of the queue
associated with the printer to be used.
Configuring Thin Client Settings
This name can be different for each vendor. This field is required and must be correct so that the network printer accepts
incoming print jobs properly. For example, auto can be used for HP LaserJet 4200n PCL6 as per documentation found on the HP
Web site.
NOTE:
If the printer is attached to another thin client on your network, the LPD Queue Name must match the content of the
Printer Name box on the thin client with the printer attached.

Advanced Details on Configuring ICA and RDP
Connections
Use the following information when configuring ICA and RDP 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 a 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 a network administrator and are accessed by the thin client from the user profiles on a
remote server.
•
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.

Configuring ICA Connections
To configure the ICA connection option you selected in the Remote Connections dialog box, perform the following tasks:
1
Click Default ICA icon on the desktop.
2
Click Settings, and then click the Connection tab.
To configure the ICA Connections, do the following:
Advanced Details on Configuring ICA and RDP Connections
101
a
b
c
d
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 — 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 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 host names or IP addresses, or you can select from the list of ICA servers
or published applications obtained from the ICA master browser. You can also use Browse next to the box to make the selection
you want.
If you enter a delimited list of servers, the thin client will attempt to connect to the next server on the list if the previous server
attempt fails. If you use the list and the selected connection fails, the thin client will attempt to connect to the next one on the
list.
102
Advanced Details on Configuring ICA and RDP Connections
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.
e
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 the higher levels of encryption.
f
g
h
NOTE: 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, uses HTTP when browsing.
Alternate address via firewall — When selected, the thin client uses 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.
Display Resolution — Select the display resolution for this connection.
If you select the Published Application option, the Connection Display allows you to select the Seamless Display Resolution
option.
i
j
k
3
Colors — Select the color depth of the ICA session. If High Colors (16 bits) or True Colors is selected and the ICA server does
not support this color depth, the thin client renegotiates the color depth to the lower value, for example, 256 Colors [8–bits].
Window mode and Full screen mode — Select the initial view of the application and desktop in a windowed screen or full
screen.
Auto-connect on start-up — When selected, automatically connects the session on start-up.
Reconnect after disconnect — When selected, causes the thin client to automatically reconnect to a session after a non
operator-initiated disconnect. If selected, the wait interval is that set in the Delay before reconnecting box (enter the number of
seconds 1–3600) or the user profile for yes (20 seconds) or seconds. The default is 20 seconds, if there is no INI file description
of this connection, or is a Stand-alone user, or simply omitted.
Click logon tab, and use the following guidelines:

Autoconnect to local devices — Select any options (Printers, Serials, USB, Smart Cards, and Disks) to have the thin client
automatically connect to the devices.
Allow font smoothing — When selected, enables font smoothing (smooth type).
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.
Enable session reliability — When enabled, session reliability allows a user to momentarily lose connection to the server without
having to re-authenticate upon regaining a connection. Instead of a user’s connection timing out after X seconds, the session is
kept alive on the server and is made available to the client upon regaining connectivity. Session reliability is most relevant for
wireless devices.

Features of RDP 8.1
Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) H.264 and VOR is enabled by default for all ThinOS platforms, except C10LE and R10L.
Remote desktops such as Window 8, Window 8.1, Window 10, and Windows 2012R2 are supported in this release.
The following are the dependencies of RDP 8.1:
•
Dependence 1: RDP GFX status, H.264 and VOR work only when GFX is enabled.
•
Dependence 2: VOR is dynamic. So the enablement / disablement of VOR dynamically changes during the change in the video
resolution (enlarge/shrink).
•
Dependence 3: H.264 enablement is decided at the beginning of connection, depending on the maximum resolution available for the
session.
The following INI parameter must be set to enable GFX, H.264 and VOR:
SessionConfig=RDP EnableGFX=yes/no EnableVOR=yes/no
enablerdph264=yes/no

•
RDP without force span which is the same as single display.
•
RDP with force span + window mode is dependent on system resolution value
•
RDP with force span + full screen + default resolution is verified by system resolution x 2.
•
RDP with force span + full screen + not default resolution is verified by selected resolution x 2.

Required packages
User must install the FR.i386.pkg package for the feature to work:
Installation of packages
To install the required packages, follow the steps mentioned here:
1
Upload packages to directory \wnos\pkg\.
2
Ensure that the INI autoload is not set to 0. Set INI AutoLoad=1 AddPkg=FR in wnos.ini.
3
Restart the client to read the File Server and wait till the auto installation of packages is complete.
118
Introduction to Flash Redirection
You can view the installed packages in the Packages tab in the System Tools dialog box.
NOTE: For ThinOS package versions, see Dell Wyse ThinOS 8.3.2 Release Notes.
4
Server configuration for Flash redirection
a
To ignore the differences in flash player versions, user must add the FlashPlayerVersionComparisonMask and
ClientFlashPlayerVersionMinimum registry key on the desktop.
If it is XenApp 6.5, IEBrowserMaximumMajorVersion registry key is required to ignore the differences in IE Browser
versions.
For more information, see docs.citrix.com/en-us/xenapp-and-xendesktop/7-9/hdx/flash-redirection.html.
From XenDesktop 7.9, you must add more entries in registry for HDX FR to work. For information about these additional entries,
refer to Citrix Technical documents.
5
Client configuration for Flash redirection
By default, no client configuration is required. New INI parameters are added to support HDX FR Client configurations, for example, to
fetch the server side content. The newly added INI parameters are:
SessionConfig=ICA\
HDXFlashUseFlashRemoting=Never | Always (default) \
HDXFlashEnableServerSideContentFetching=Disabled (default) | Enabled \
How to verify it is working or not working
Introduction to Flash Redirection
119
a
Right-click the flash video to know the flash player version. It displays version information of the customized player at ThinOS
client side which is 11.1.102.59. If the flash player version is different, then it is unsuccessful server rendering.
b
During the flash playback, it will display ThinOS event logs for HDX FR in the System Information dialog box.
1
FR: Media type video/x-264
2
FR: Media type audio/mpeg
For information about basic operations on Citrix HDX flash redirection and policies configurations, see Citrix documentation.
Known Issues
120
a
Playback flash videos in Internet Explorer browser with normal security settings.
b
Playback with videos ≤ 720p; the 1080p video may show graphic issue.
c
Playback full screen video with resolution ≤ 1920 x 1200; for example, full screen playback with ThinOS resolution 1920 x 1200; in
2560 x 1600 full screen video there could be graphic issues.
d
After flash video is loaded it will stay in initial size; for example, resizing browser will not resize the video content; it is same
behavior with Citrix HDX FR Linux client.
e
Only English font is supported; for example, subtitles in other languages will not be properly displayed.
f
In some scenario the video shows no content initially; when user resizes browser the video appears normally; it is likely to happen
with x86 desktops and is a known issue for Citrix HDX FR Linux client.
g
Playback with videos that can work with HDX FR on Linux or Windows client: There are a number of videos/websites known as
not working with Citrix HDX FR solution such as msn.com, espn.com, movies.yahoo.com, and dell.com. Flash videos simply
cannot load with these websites using HDX FR solution. Some of them are working periodically; for example, videos on dell.com
were working well during this Feb/March but stopped working afterwards; the results can vary depending on user location as
well (US/Europe/Asia). It is therefore recommended to make sure the target videos work with HDX FR on Linux or Windows,
before working with it on ThinOS.
h
The solution on ThinOS is based on Citrix HDX FR Linux version. It is advised to compare with Linux client in case of any issues.
i
Playback YouTube.com videos may run into some issues; for example, cannot show video unless user copy the URL and paste it
to the browser to visit again. In case any observation we recommend to compare with Linux client.

trip times and packet loss statistics. It 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 host name is known.
IMPORTANT:
Not all network equipment will respond to ping packets, as 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.

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.

Central Configuration: Automating Updates and
Configurations
This appendix describes how to set up your environment to provide your thin clients running ThinOS with automatic updates and
configurations in three simple steps.
NOTE: Dell Wyse thin clients do not require device management software. They are configured to obtain their IP address, as well
as the location of firmware and configuration instructions, from a DHCP server. However, you can use WDM for a more hands-on
management of your thin clients. For information about configuring your thin clients to communicate with a WDM server, see the
WDM related INI parameters in Dell Wyse ThinOS INI Guide.
How to Set Up Automatic Updates and Configurations
For a thin client running ThinOS to successfully access INI files and update itself from a server, you must set up the server with the correct
folder structure where the INI files and other update files are located, direct the thin client to the server, and then reboot or start the thin
client
Once DHCP and servers are configured and available, the thin client checks (at each boot up) to see whether or not any updates are
available on a predefined server DHCP Option #161 specifies the server URL, DHCP Option #162 specifies the root path to the server. If
updates are available, the updates are automatically installed.
Using DHCP Options
This table contains the DHCP options available for use.
Table 5. DHCP Options
Option
Description
Notes
1
Subnet Mask
Required. However, it is not required unless
the thin client must interact with servers on
a different subnet. MS DHCP requires a
subnet mask and is always send one.
2

Optional.
3
Router
Optional, but recommended. It is not
required unless the thin client must interact
with servers on a different subnet.
6
Domain Name Server(DNS)
Optional, but recommended.
15
Domain Name
Optional, but recommended. See Option 6.
28
Broadcast Address
Optional.

53
DHCP Message Type
Recommended.
54
DHCP Server IP Address
Recommended.
55
Parameter Request List
Sent by thin client.
57
Maximum DHCP
Optional (always sent by thin client).
Message Size
58
T1 (renew) Time
Optional, but recommended.
59
T2 (rebind) Time
Optional, but recommended.
61
Client identifier
Always sent.
161
File server (ftp/http/https)
Optional string. Can be either the name or
the IP address of the file server. If a name is
given, the name must be resolvable by the
DNS servers specified in Option 6. If the
option provided by the server is blank or the
server provides no value for the field, the
machine on which the DHCP server resides
is assumed to also be the file server.
162
Root path to the file server (ftp/http/https) Optional string. If the option provided by the
server is blank and the server provides no
value for the field, a null string is used.
\wyse\wnos is automatically appended to
the search path. For example, if you enter
pub\serversoftware, the path searchedare
pub\serversoftware\wyse\wnos.
NOTE: You can have the \wyse
automatic component of the search
path omitted by appending a dollar
sign ($) to the entered path. For
example, if you enter pub
\serversoftware$, the path
searched will be pub
\serversoftware\wnos.
NOTE:
The usage or omission of a leading
slash (\) on the path is critical on
some servers. Some servers limit
access to the root path of the user
specified at login. For those servers,
the usage of the leading slash is
optional. Some *NIX servers can be
configured to allow the file user
access to the entire file system. For
those servers, specifying a leading
slash specifies that access is to start
at the root file system. Proper
matching of the file specification to
the file server in use is critical to
ensuring proper operation. A secured
Windows server requires the slash to
be specified in order to complete
proper access.
181
138
PNAgent/ PNLite server list
Central Configuration: Automating Updates and Configurations
Optional string. The thin client uses the
server to authenticate the Windows
credentials of the user and to obtain a list of
ICA published applications valid for the
validated credentials. The user supplies
those credentials when logging in to the thin
client.
182
NT domain list for PNAgent/ PNLite
Optional string. The thin client creates a
pull-down list of domains from the
information supplied in option 182. This list is
presented at thin client login in the order
specified in the DHCP option (for example,
the first domain specified becomes the
default). The selected domain is the one
which must authenticate the user ID and
password. Only the selected domain is used
in the authentication process. If the domain
list is incomplete and the user credentials
must be verified against a domain not in the
list, assuming that the server in option 181 is
capable of authenticating against a domain
not in the list, the user has the option of not
using any of the domains specified in option
182 and typing a different domain name at
the time of login.
184
File server Username
Optional string. Username to use when
authenticating to the server specified in
Option 161.
185
File server Password
Optional string. Password to use when
authenticating to the server specified in
Option 161.
186
WDM server list
Optional binary IP addresses of WDM. This
option can specify up to two WDM servers.
If two are specified, at boot time the thin
client attempts to check-in to the first
server. If it cannot contact the first server, it
tries to check-in to the second server.
187
WDM server port
Optional number. Byte, word, or two-bytes
array.
NOTE: The value of this option tag,
when not embedded in Vendor
Class Specific Information option, is
interpreted in reverse order when it
is sent as 2-bytes example, the
value of 0x0050 was interpreted as
0x5000. This option tag was used
by old ThinOS releases. New
ThinOS releases still accept this
option tag for backward
compatibility.
188
Virtual Desktop Broker server
Optional string.
190
WDM secure port
Optional number, word or two-bytes array.
Specifies to use HTTPS to communicate
with WDM instead of HTTP.
192
WDM server port
Optional number, word or two-bytes array.
Central Configuration: Automating Updates and Configurations
139
NOTE: The value of this option tag
represents the same information as
option tag 187. The difference is
that ThinOS interprets the value of
this option tag in correct order (for
example, the value of 0x0050 is
interpreted as0x0050). If the DHCP
server provides both option tag 192
and 187, option tag 192 takes
precedence.
194
WDM FQDN
Optional Fully Qualified Domain Name for
the WDM.
199
Cloud Client Manager Group Key
Optional string. Can provide a CCM Group
Registration Key for the cloud Client
Manager agent. When cloud Client Manager
is disabled and the Group Key of Cloud
Client Manager is null, this option takes
effect. Cloud Client Manager uses the
optional string as the Group Registration
Key. If the Cloud Client Manager server or
MQTT server is null, the Cloud Client
Manager agent sets the values to the
default server values.

On the thin client you want to use as a Reference Device, start the thin client.
In the Login dialog box, enter the credentials you need to access the cmos.ini file.
After login, to view the Event Log tab, do the following:
Click System Information icon > System Information dialog box > Event Log tab.
You can open the event log to view a CMOS: extract to C10_cmos.1.0B_SPC001 event. This means that the CMOS central
management file (containing the CMOS settings from your Reference Device) is now copied to the wnos directory/folder on the
file server. As this is a C10 BIOS version 1.0B_SPC001-0407 example, the CMOS central management file name would be
C10_cmos.1.0B_SPC001. These CMOS settings are now ready for distribution to other thin clients.

NOTE: After you target your thin client devices contain the CMOS settings you want, do not log in to the file server
containing the cmos.ini file with the restore action (unless you want to redo the restore process). Administrators can
remove the cmos.ini file to prevent from unwanted CMOS overwrites.
NOTE: It is recommended to initially complete these procedures on a file server designated to test the success of your
CMOS central management settings/process. While the central configuration method can be used to enforce your CMOS
settings in a production environment, be aware that any thin client device that logs in to the file server that contains the
cmos.ini and its extract and restore commands are subject to those commands (CMOS overwrites).
CMOS Local Management: Extracting CMOS Settings
to a USB Key for Distribution
CMOS local management allows ThinOS administrators to easily manage CMOS settings for small deployments of thin clients using USB
Key distribution methods. The following instructions are for R10 BIOS version 1.0B_SPC001–0407. However, the instructions are also
applicable for other supported BIOS versions.

Printing to Local USB or Parallel Printers
You can print to locally attached printers through USB or Parallel ports.
IMPORTANT:
Microsoft Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH), Microsoft Terminal Services, and Citrix XenApp each have their own printing policies
that must be configured properly to allow client side printing. For details on configuring printing in these environments, see your vendor
instructions.
Examples of Common Printing Configurations
143
Using the Printer Setup Dialog Box for Local USB or Parallel
Printers
In this example you have an HP LaserJet 4000 attached to a thin client USB port. When connecting USB printers, some printers fill out the
Printer Name and Printer Identification fields for you.
To Configure the Printer to print locally attached printers through USB or Parallel ports.
1
From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Printer.
The Printer Setup dialog box is displayed.
2
Click Printer Setup, and use the following guidelines for the Ports tab when printing to a local USB printer:
a
b
c
d
e
3
Select Port — Select LPT1 or LPT2 port.
Printer Name — Enter name you want displayed in your list of printers, most USB direct-connected printers report/fill in their
printer name automatically.
Printer Identification — Enter the type or model of the printer in the exact text of the Windows printer driver name —
including capitalizations and spaces most USB direct-connected printers report/fill in their printer identifications automatically. In
our example case, enter HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL.
Printer Class — You can leave this as default.
Enable the printer device — Must be selected to enable the directly connected printer enables the device so it displays on the
remote host.
Click OK to save the settings.
Using INI Parameters for Local USB or Parallel Printers
Configuring local printing using ThinOS INI parameters is simple and an easy way to configure a printer for all clients in your environment
assuming every printer is the same.
Your INI parameters will look something like the following:
Printer=LPT1 \
Name="HP LaserJet 4000" \
PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL" \
Enabled=yes
NOTE: The PrinterID is the exact text of the Windows printer driver name, so if a printer driver is named HP LaserJet 4000
Series PCL in Windows, then it must be exactly the same in the PrinterID field in the INI parameters including capitalizations and
spaces.
Printing to Non-Windows Network Printers (LPD)
ThinOS can print to non-Windows network printers as long as the printers can accept LPR print requests. Most workgroup printers and
large network printers have this capability be sure to check with your vendor that the printer can accept Line Printer Request print
requests.
Once your thin client is configured to print to an LPR capable printer, the client will then redirect this printer through an RDP or ICA
connection to your back end infrastructure. In this way the client will connect to your back end infrastructure and this network printer will
appear as a client local printer.
144
Examples of Common Printing Configurations
Using the Printer Setup Dialog Box for Non-Windows Network
Printers (LPD)
To configure the Printer Setup dialog box for Non-Windows Network Printers (LPD).
1
From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Printer.
The Printer Setup dialog box is displayed.
In this example we have an HP LaserJet 4200n attached to a thin client through LPR.
2
Click the LPDs tab and use the following guidelines when printing to a non-Windows network printer:
a Select LPD — Select LPD1 or LPD2 port.
b Printer Name — Enter name you want displayed in your list of printers.
c Printer Identification — Enter the type or model of the printer in the exact text of the Windows printer driver name —
including capitalizations and spaces.
d
In this example, enter HP LaserJet 4200n PCL6.
LPD Hosts — The DNS or WINS name of the server for the network printer. An IP address of the printer on the network can
also be entered as we have used in our case example.
e
NOTE: If the printer is attached to another thin client on your network, the entry in the LPD Hosts box is the name or
address of that thin client.
LPD Queue Name — An LPD host maintains a named queue for each supported printer. Enter the name of the queue
associated with the printer used. This name can be different for each vendor. This field is required and must be correct so that
the network printer accepts incoming print jobs properly. In our case example, auto can be used for HP LaserJet 4200n PCL6 as
per documentation found on the HP website.
f
g
NOTE: If the printer is attached to another thin client on your network, the LPD Queue Name must match the content
of the Printer Name box on the thin client with the printer attached.
Printer Class —You can leave this as default.
Enable the printer device — Must be selected to enable the printer enables the device so it displays on the remote host.
Using INI Parameters for Non-Windows Network Printers
(LPD)
Configuring network printing using ThinOS INI parameters is simple and an easy way to configure a printer for all clients in your environment
assuming every printer is the same.
Your INI parameters will look something like the following:
Printer=LPD1 \
LocalName="HP LaserJet 4200n" \
Host=10.10.10.1 \
Queue=auto \
PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4200 PCL6" \
Enabled=yes
NOTE: The PrinterID is the exact text of the Windows printer driver name, so if a printer driver is named HP LaserJet 4200n
PCL6 in Windows, then it must be exactly the same in the PrinterID field in the INI parameters including capitalizations and
spaces.
Printing to Windows Network Printers (SMB)
ThinOS can print to printers that are shared by Microsoft print servers. There are some configuration requirements that need to be
considered when configuring SMB printing from ThinOS which may require changes to your thin client setup.
Examples of Common Printing Configurations
145
Since connecting to a Microsoft Windows Print Server requires domain credentials, you must provide the credentials to ThinOS either on
demand as the printer is used or by administrator setup providing credentials cached from the Dell Wyse login screen, see Example 3:
Defining an SMB Printer to Use User Credentials Cached by ThinOS (Advanced) in Using INI Parameters for Windows Network Printers
(SMB). This section will discuss both methods.
Using the Printer Setup Dialog Box for Windows Network
Printers (SMB)
Configuring an SMB printer is this manner forces users to enter their credentials before each printing; this means they will be temporarily
pulled out of their remote session to enter their credentials (this can be avoided by using an INI file as discussed in Using INI Parameters for
Windows Network Printers (SMB).
Enter the context of your task here (optional). This is where introductory content goes.
1
From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Printer.
The Printer setup dialog box is displayed.
2
Click the SMBS tab, and use the following guidelines when printing to a Windows network printer:
NOTE: The printer name shared by Windows must not contain any spaces or ThinOS will not be able to use it.
a
b
c
d
e
f
Select SMB — Select the SMB you want from the list.
\\Host\Printer — Click the browse folder icon next to the box to browse your Microsoft Networks and make the printer
selection you want from the network printers available the DNS name or IP address of the Windows print server on the network.
After entering required domain credentials, the Printer Setup dialog box will display
Printer Name — Enter name you want displayed in your list of printers.
Printer Identification — Enter the type or model of the printer in the exact text of the Windows printer driver name—including
capitalizations and spaces.
In example case, enter HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL.
Printer Class —You can leave this as default.
Enable the printer device — Must be selected to enable the printer.
It enables the device so it displays on the remote host.
Click Test Print and you will be prompted to enter your Windows credentials, these credentials will be used to access the printer
share. This is also the same dialog box that will display for a user when they attempt to print to this printer.
Using INI Parameters for Windows Network Printers (SMB)
Configuring SMB printing using ThinOS INI parameters is simple and an easy way to configure printers shared by a Windows server for all
clients in your environment. The primary advantage of configuring SMB printing using ThinOS INI parameters is that you can pre-define the
domain account to use to authenticate the printer. The following examples discuss how the credentials can be supplied.
1. Defining an SMB Printer with Generic User Credentials in Plain Text
Printer=SMB1 \
LocalName="Demo SMB Printer" \
Host=\\dp-dc-ftp \
Name="TechSupportPrinter" \
PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL" \
Enabled=yes \
Username=Username1 \
Password=Password \
Domain=contoso
2. Defining an SMB Printer with Generic User Credentials that are Encrypted
Printer=SMB1 \
LocalName="Demo SMB Printer" \
Host=\\dp-dc-ftp \
146
Examples of Common Printing Configurations
Name="TechSupportPrinter" \
PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL" \
Enabled=yes \
Username-enc=PACGOGDBPKDOPGDGKC \
Password-enc=PFDBOHDBODCJPODP \
Domain=contoso
NOTE: In order to create the encrypted passwords for use in an INI file you will want to use a program such as ConfGen. This
application has built in support for creating the encrypted strings. ConfGen can be downloaded from technicalhelp.de/
IMPORTANT: This is a non-supported tool that is linked solely for the purpose of this example.
3. Defining an SMB Printer to Use User Credentials Cached by ThinOS (Advanced)
NOTE: This method requires that the user log in to ThinOS so that the credentials can be cached for later use. The example INI
section provided below provides the minimum requirements you need.
Signon=NTLM
Connect=RDP \
Host=1.2.3.4 \
Username=$UN \
Password=$PW \
Domain=$DN \
AutoConnect=1
Printer=SMB1 \
LocalName="Demo SMB Printer" \
Host=\\dp-dc-ftp \
Name="TechSupportPrinter" \
PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL" \
Enabled=yes \
Username=$UN \
Password=$PW \
Domain=$DN
Using Your Thin Client as a Print Server (LPD)
A ThinOS thin client can be configured as a basic network print server, to share local printers with other thin clients.
Using the Printer Setup Dialog Box for Configuring LPD
Services
From the Classic Desktop mode only, a thin client can be configured to provide LPD (Line Printer Daemon) services making the thin client a
printer server on the network. Set up the thin client that is to provide LPD print services as follows:
To configure LPD Services using the Printer Setup Dialog Box.
1
From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Network Setup to open the Network Setup dialog box.
2
Enter a static IP address for the thin client.
3
From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Printer to open the Printer Setup dialog box and select any of the listed ports.
4
Select a LPT.
5
Name the printer in the Printer Name box.
6
Enter the Printer Identification type or model of the printer in the exact text of the Windows printer driver name — including
capitalizations and spaces. In our example case, enter HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL.
7
You can leave Printer Class as default.
8
Select Enable the Printer Device.
9
Select Enable LPD service for the printer.

Setting Up Windows 2003/2008 Servers
To Configure Setting the Windows 2003/2008 Servers
1
Navigate to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services and ensure the Microsoft TCP/IP Printing service is installed. If it is not,
install it using the Microsoft installation instructions.
2
Add the thin client as the LPD printer by completing the following:
a
Navigate to Control Panel > Printers > Add Printers > Local Printer > Create a new port and select LPR PORT.
b
Type the thin client IP address or DNS name in the Name or address of host providing LPD box.
c
Type the printer name assigned in Using the Printer Setup Dialog Box for Configuring LPD Services in the Name of printer on
that machine box.
NOTE: If you do not see LPR Port, ensure that the Microsoft TCP/IP Printing service is installed correctly.
d
Click OK, and then click NEXT.
After you have selected the printer, you can perform your normal printer setup for the application server. For example, select the
manufacturer printer type and printer name.
3
Using INI Parameters for Configuring LPD Services
Configuring LPD printing using ThinOS INI parameters is simple and an easy way to configure a ThinOS thin client to be a basic network
print server, to share local printers with other thin clients.
Your INI parameters will look something like the following:
Printer=LPT1 \
Name="HP LaserJet 4000" \
PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL" \
Enabled=yes \
EnableLPD=yes
NOTE: The PrinterID is the exact text of the Windows printer driver name, so if a printer driver is named HP LaserJet 4000
Series PCL in Windows, then it must be exactly the same in the PrinterID field in the INI parameters including capitalizations and
spaces.
Configuring ThinPrint
No ThinPrint specific configuration is available on the thin clients. Thus to be able to use ThinPrint, users must first set up their printers
according to the user documentation, and then configure ThinPrint on the thin client using the Printer Setup dialog box.
To configure the ThinPrint, use the following guidelines:
•
Use the Printer Identification field to enter a printer class (you can change the printer name as needed).
•
Printer IDs are assigned (depending on the physical port) as follows:
148
•
COM1 = 1
•
COM2 = 2
•
LPT1 = 3 — USB printers are detected automatically on LPT1
•
LPT2 = 4
•
LPD0 = 5– The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer Identification as class
•
LPD1 = 6 — The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer Identification as class

To install the relevant ThinPrint product on the server use the following guidelines:
•
Printer Objects Created Manually by the Administrator — After you install.print Engine, create a printer object on the server to use
the native driver and ThinPort as a printer port. You can use any protocol (TCP, RDP or ICA) because ThinOS has.print clients for all of
the protocols. The printer object needs to observe ThinPrint naming conventions, for example, HPLJ5#_:2, in which case print jobs are
sent to the local printer that has ID number .2 by referring to.print client port ID. If no ID number is present, the.print client sends the
print job to the printer set as current.
•
Printer Objects Created Automatically by ThinPrint AutoConnect — When using ThinPrint AutoConnect, the thin client identifies
with the thin client ID number 84 and thus is recognized as a thin client without a local spooler. You can also set up a template on the
server that uses a native driver example, HPLJ5) and ThinPort, and then name this template as you want in the form _#AnyName.
You can then make sure that the rules on ThinPrint Autoconnect [1] have been set to assign the desired local printers to use this server
template. The assigned printer will then be shown in the user session using the HPLJ5 driver and ThinPort; it is named automatically
according to ThinPrint naming convention with the printer name from the client side included. Alternatively, you can also define a
template name according to the client printer name (replace.AnyName. with printer name 4. and 5. above for example, _#HP Laserjet 5
so that the local printer object.HP Laserjet 5. is mapped to this template without any rules defined on the ThinPrint Autoconnect.

Security Changes
A new global security policy has been defined for ThinOS and this policy is applied to all secure connections (https/SSL connections) with
a few exceptions.
Purpose: To improve the security level by default and add the global configuration. This security policy integrates security setting for each
application.
INI Parameter
Description
SecurityPolicy={full | warning (default) |
low}
SecuredNetworkProtocol={yes | no (default)}
TLSMinVersion={1 (default), 2, 3}
TLSMaxVesion={1, 2, 3 (default)}
Full: SSL connection need to verify server certificate. If it is
untrusted, cancel the connection.
Warning (default): SSL connection need to verify server
certificate. If it is untrusted, the user can continue or cancel the
connection.
Low: Server certificate is not verified– this is the value set for a
few applications.
After firmware is updated, the default value is set to warning for all
applicable applications immediately.
There is one exception for file server and WDM.
The old ini SecurityLevel |SecureProtocol from Privilege segment
is deleted.
All applications running on the default SSL security mode follow the global mode. In the global mode, the default value is Warning. The
affected applications include VMware View, Amazon Workspaces (AWS), File Server, WDMService, Caradigm Server, and OneSign Server.
For more information about the security mode INI parameters, see Dell Wyse ThinOS INI Guide.
The following are the exceptions:
•
File Server and WDM in factory reset state: Before loading any INI parameter, the SSL security mode is set to Low, and after loading the
INI parameter, the value is changed to follow the global mode value. For example, the default value is set to Warning, if the value is not
changed by the INI parameter.
System with previous settings (default value is set to Low) follows the global mode after the unit is upgraded. For example, the default
value is set to Warning, if the value is not changed by the INI parameter.
•
150
VMware View and AWS brokers include own security settings (GUI and INI). From 8.3 release, an additional option is added to follow
the global mode as its new default value. The security mode GUI context is updated for better understanding.
Security Changes
•
CCM, Microsoft RDS broker, Citrix broker, and SecureMatrix are always Full.
File Server default protocol is retained as FTP without any setting from WDM/DHCP/INI and always displays the full address with protocol
prefix. For example, ftp://.
New firmware/client deploy information
•
Dell recommends you to define the SecurityPolicy before upgrading to version 8.3 and later. If not, you may get warning messages that
require intervention to proceed.
•
Before upgrading to version 8.3 and later, it is recommended to define the desired SSL security level and add the required Security
Policy parameters/options to global INI file.
•
For SecurityPolicy=Fullor warning, you are required to add certificates from the respective File, View, AWS, WDM, OneSign,
and/or Caradigm server(s) to the ThinOS client before updating the firmware.
•
The default protocol of File Server is still FTP and ftp prefix is added automatically, if the protocol is not provided.
Improved user friendly messages are displayed for errors and warnings.
The UI is not changed and only the message is modified for security errors/warnings.
In full security mode, the following warning message is displayed:
Security Changes
151
For warning security mode, the following warning messages are displayed:
The server address does not convert to http, if WDM server is set as https.
•
In the previous scenario, If WDM server is configured without HTTPS, and local WDM server address is specified in HTTPS, then the
system converts it to HTTP address.
•
In the current scenario, the system does not convert the WDM server address to HTTP.
152
Security Changes
Manual discovery is removed from WDM. In the WDA tab, the Manual discovery method option is removed (Highlighted in red color in the
following screenshot).
Security Changes
153
E
Transport Layer Security (TLS)
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that provides communication security between the client and server applications.
Upgrade to Transport Layer Security (TLS)— In the ThinOS 8.2 release, the TLS is upgraded from version 1.0 to version 1.2. By default,
the ThinOS client uses TLS 1.2 to secure any communication protocols, connections, or applications upon SSL/ TLS in general and falls
back to the previous SSL/ TLS version when negotiating with the server.

VNC RFB version upgrade: Since ThinOS 8.0_214, the VNC RFB version has been upgraded to 3.8 for some applications like
DameWare. The VNC version is upgraded to 3.8, so it is recommended to use the DameWare software to remotely control the thin
clients. Earlier, DameWare would not work, and you would have to use other softwares such as VNC Viewer. The advantage of using
DameWare is auto configuration and easy deployment while the limitation is that it requires minimum VNC version 3.8.

How to enable ICA SuperCodec on XenDesktop 7.9?
Under Citrix Policy, Use video codec for compression needs to be configured to enable ICA SuperCodec on both non-HDX 3D Pro
desktop (standard VDA) and HDX 3D Pro desktop (VDA for HDX 3D Pro).
By default, Use video codec when preferred is selected. Then ICA SuperCodec is enabled on HDX 3D Pro Desktop only, but disabled
on non-HDX 3D Pro desktop. If you select Do not use video codec, ICA SuperCodec is disabled on both HDX 3D Pro desktop and
non-HDX 3D Pro desktop.

Frequently Asked Questions
Although ICA SuperCodec is disabled on non-HDX 3D Pro Desktop, if you set Use video codec when preferred or Do not use video
codec, OR disabled on HDX 3D Pro Desktop if you set Do not use video codec, ThinOS may still print log ICA: SuperCodec enabled,
and this is a known issue.
If you select Use video codec when available, ICA SuperCodec is enabled for both HDX 3D Pro desktop and non-HDX 3D Pro
desktop.
