Chapter 1: Overview
Chapter 1. Overview
The Visara Windows-based Terminal embodies the computing capabilities
of both fixed function terminals and PCs and provides:
• access to DOS and Windows applications
• access to mini, midrange and mainframe host computers
• full utilization of PC and Host network-accessible peripheral devices
The Visara Windows-based Terminal is a full-function and powerful
desktop device appropriate for all environments.
Advances in network computing enable a Windows-based Terminal device
to operate as if application programs are running locally. Powerful, highspeed processors and file servers can simultaneously service many
desktops. As new capabilities are added to the server, e.g. CPU power,
disk storage, etc., each and every desktop device benefits. This provides
a highly effective model for maintenance and operation as administrative
services are centrally managed and controlled. And, as a client of powerful
servers and hosts, Windows-based Terminals help to minimize desktop
device obsolescence.
PC and Host Networks
Visara can access Windows application servers and host computers over
either Windows or Netware networks…over local or wide-area
networks…to run Windows 3.X, 95/98 and NT applications. HostConnect,
a Telnet terminal emulation program permanently stored in Visara, enables
server-independent access by a Visara Windows-based Terminal to host
data and programs.
Enterprise Networking
Enterprise networks typically require user access to multi-host
environments which can consist of mainframe and midrange as well as
microprocessor-based servers. The Visara provides simultaneous terminal
emulation capabilities for network connection to most host environments
including IBM S/390, AS/400, RS/6000 as well as HP, DEC and other
ASCII hosts.

Unpacking and Setup
The Visara Windows-based Terminal is shipped in a single carton and
contains the following components:
• System unit
• System unit stand
• Keyboard
• Mouse
• User Manual
If you purchased the optional monitor, it is shipped in a separate carton.
Save the cartons and packing material in the event you need to subsequently
store or ship the unit.
Setting up Visara
Clear the work area where you will set up the Visara Windows-based
Terminal. The system unit may be positioned horizontally on a flat surface
or vertically using the system unit stands. The stands are designed to slip
over the side of the system unit. Ensure there is sufficient clearance
(minimally 3” / 76mm) behind the unit for the cables and connectors.
The system unit is designed to support monitors up to 15 inches or a
maximum weight of 30 pounds. Do not place objects weighing in excess
of 30 pounds on the system unit. Take care not to block the ventilation
areas on the system unit. Position the monitor, keyboard and mouse in a
comfortable ergonomic position.

Chapter 2: Unpacking the Visara
Connecting to a Network
The Visara is designed to connect to twisted-pair Ethernet networks
(10BaseT or 100BaseT). The RJ45 connector on the rear panel is used
for this connection. Make your network connection by plugging the RJ45
connector of a category 5 cable (not included), into the RJ45 connector of
the system unit.
Power Supply
The Visara Windows-based Terminal has an internal power supply that
supports AC input voltages within the range of 100-240 VAC and a
frequency range of 47-63Hz. The input connector supports standard
appliance power cords and one is typically supplied to match the local
power receptacle.
Indicator Lights (LEDs)
There are three lights on the front of the Visara system unit. One is not
used.
• Power
The indicator light marked with a “sun” symbol is the power indicator
and will be green when the unit is on. If the switch is in the on position
and the green light is not lit, check the power cord connections.
• Ethernet
The light marked by a running man indicates network activity. This
light will be yellow or flash yellow when the Visara detects Ethernet
network activity. If this indicator does not light check your cable and
network connections.

Chapter 3: Starting Visara the First Time
Chapter 3: Starting Visara the
First Time
Windows Setup Wizard
The first time the Visara is run the user will be presented with the WindowsBased Terminal setup wizard. The setup wizard welcome screen shows
the product ID at this screen, click Next to continue the setup function.
The setup wizard will then present the Microsoft Windows CE license
agreement. You should read this agreement and click Accept to continue
the setup process.
Depending on your use of DHCP, the setup wizard will present a screen
asking if you wish to use the DHCP settings or to configure a manual
DHCP address. If your settings are provided by a DHCP server, select
DHCP and Next to continue. If you will be providing manual settings for
the IP address or other settings see the section on Manual configuration
below. Once the appropriate information is supplied click finish on the
final screen to exit the Setup Wizard. If the Restart Message is displayed
select Yes at the prompt to restart your Visara using the new settings.
Automatic Configuration
The Visara can be configured automatically through the use of a ftp server
on the network and the Visara Remote Configuration Utility. Or, these
functions can be bypassed and the Visara configured manually. Using a
DHCP server will allow use of the Visara without configuring the network
parameters such as an IP address or Gateway address. The Remote
Configuration Utility is used to configure the connections to other network
servers such as telnet terminal emulations. The Visara comes preconfigured to use DHCP and Remote Configuration to allow fully
automatic installation without operator intervention. The steps for
automatic and manual configuration are covered below:

automatic configuration of the Visara network parameters such as the IP
address and gateway address. The use of DHCP requires the configuration
of a DHCP server to provide this information to the Visara at boot time.
Your Network Administrator must perform the configuration of the DHCP
server.
DHCP Setup
The Visara is factory configured to use DHCP. In order for this feature to
operate correctly an active DHCP server must exist on the network and at
least one available IP address must be accessible from the DHCP server.
To insure that DHCP remains active select DHCP in the Setup Wizard.
At boot time the Visara will broadcast a message to the DHCP server
requesting network configuration information. If the Visara receives a
valid network configuration from the DHCP server it will use this
information to configure its TCP/IP settings and become an active node
on the Ethernet network. DHCP can be disabled to allow using assigned
TCP/IP settings provided by your Network Administrator. To disable
DHCP in the Setup Wizard select “No, I will enter static IP information”
or from the Main Menu do the following:
• From the Visara Main Menu hit F2 on the keyboard to access the
Terminal Properties screen. Select the Network tab and the Network
properties window will open.
• Select the radio button to specify an IP address and enter the appropriate
IP address information. The Network tab also provides access to
advanced network settings for DNS and Wins. Check with your
network administrator for the appropriate settings.
For fixed IP addresses and other manual configurations see the section
titled Manual Configuration in this User Guide.
Remote Configuration of Connections
Remote Configuration allows the Visara to handle Account/User Based
connection configurations. Connection configurations determine what
servers the user accesses and contains terminal emulation information
including Telnet emulation type. Remote Configuration allows the
Network Administrator to establish Account/User Based connection
configurations that are then downloaded to other Visara units on the
network. Configurations can be setup on a user or department basis as
desired. The configurations are stored on a central server and are
downloaded to the Visara based on the Account name used at Visara boot
time. If your Network Administrator has setup the server to support
Remote Configurations he will provide you with an account name to use
when starting the Visara.

configurations.
Remote Configuration Setup
The Visara is factory configured with Remote Configuration enabled. In
order for this feature to operate correctly a configuration must have been
previously saved to the appropriate server and the server must be
configured to support FTP (a standard file transfer protocol). This setup
is performed by your Network Administrator who will provide you with
an account name for use when starting the Visara. Enter this account
name into the Remote Configuration startup window at boot time and
click the Start button.
The Remote Configuration function can be bypassed by clicking the

Terminal Emulation Session
HostConnect is a Telnet terminal emulation program stored in Read Only
Memory (ROM) in the Visara. This enables the Visara to operate as an
Ethernet-attached terminal to an IBM mainframe, AS/400 or any ASCII
host without having to rely on a remote server in order to start and load
emulation software. A Session Window will be visible for each host
connection or session that is open. The Session Window consists of a
Title Bar, a Menu Bar, the Display area and a Status Area. When you start
a connection from the Main Menu, the newly opened Session Window
becomes visible and obscures the Main Menu, as well as any other open
Session Windows. To open additional sessions on the same host, click on
Session on the menu bar, then click on New in the drop down menu. A
subsequent but identically configured session will open on the same host.
To switch between new sessions started in this way click on Window in
the menu bar then select next or previous.
To move between open sessions on any and all hosts use the Hot Key
sequence Ctrl + Alt + ↑ or Ctrl + Alt + ↓ (Alt + Jump or Alt + Shift +
Jump for 122 keyboard) to scroll through the open sessions. Ctrl + Alt +
End will return to the Main Menu.

The Session Display Area is the vertical center of the screen between the
Session Menu Bar and the Status Area where all host application data is
displayed.
Status Area
The Session Status Area is at the bottom of the Session Window. It provides
status information about the session. It may be referred to as the User
Information Area (UIA) or Operator Information Area (OIA). Each session
type displays status differently.
5250 Status Area
The 5250 status area consists of seven indicators on the left side of the
status bar as follows:
• Displays a circle when the session is connected to a host system; this
is sometimes called “System Available”.
• Displays an X when input is inhibited, usually because the session is
waiting for data from the host system. If instead, input is inhibited
due to a user error, a four-digit error code may also be displayed inside
the Session Display Area.
• Displays an envelope when your session has a message waiting.
• Displays a caret “^” when Insert mode is active.
• Displays a “d” character in script when Diacritic mode is active.
• Displays a “>>” pair of characters when type-ahead is activated.

Chapter 8: Citrix ICA Client for
Windows CE
Introduction
The Citrix ICA Client for Windows CE enables a Visara Windows-based
Terminal to connect to a Citrix MetaFrame or WinFrame server to run PC
applications.
MetaFrame is Citrix’s thin-client/server system software for Microsoft’s
Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server Edition. WinFrame is Citrix’s original
thin-client/server software. Both MetaFrame and WinFrame are based on
Citrix’s Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) and provide a high
performance, cost-effective, and secure way to deploy, manage, and access
business-critical applications throughout an enterprise.
This document contains procedures for using the Citrix ICA Client for
Windows CE on a Visara Windows-based Terminal. Topics covered
include:
• ICA Windows CE Client overview
• Creating a new connection
• Connecting to a Citrix server
• Editing connection properties
• Global ICA Windows CE Client settings
• Printing to a local printer
Overview
The ICA Windows CE Client launches remote control sessions, called
ICA sessions. ICA sessions are applications running on a Citrix server
that are displayed on your Visara Windows-based Terminal. You can
connect to the Citrix (MetaFrame or WINFRAME) server and run ICA
sessions through a local TCP/IP network connection. The Visara is
connected to the network that contains Citrix servers using its built-in
Ethernet connection.
You can configure and run two types of ICA sessions: Citrix server
connections and published applications.
707027-002
8-1
Chapter 8: Citrix ICA Client for Windows CE
Citrix server connections allow you to control a session on a Citrix server
from your Visara. Citrix server connections let you access the desktop of
a specific Citrix server; you can run any applications available in any
order.
Published applications are specific applications set up by an administrator.
With published application connections, you access only the specified
application and do not need to know the address of a specific server to
create the connection.
Creating a New Connection
The following procedure describes how to create a network connection to
a Citrix server.
Creating a Network Connection
To create a network connection:
1. On the Visara Main Menu Configure Tab, click on the Add button and
select ICA Client in the New Connection window.
2. Click OK and the Specify Connection Type window will appear:
3. Click Network Connection. Click Next to continue. If your Visara is
connected to the network the ICA software will search for, and produce
a list of, applicable servers located on the network.

Chapter 8: Citrix ICA Client for Windows CE
4. The Select a Citrix Server or Published Application screen appears:
If your Visara is not on the same network as the Citrix server you want
to connect to, the server or published application list will not be
displayed. If, for example, you are on the other side of a router from
the server, the server and published application list will not contain
that server. In this case, click Server Location and go to Step 5.
Otherwise, scroll through the list and select the Citrix server or
published application or type the name of the Citrix server or published
application in the edit field. Click Next to continue. Go to Step 6.
5. The Server Location screen appears:
Visara uses the information entered in the Server Location dialog to
locate available Citrix servers and published applications. The default
value entered in the Address field is Auto-Locate. To use Auto-Locate,
your Visara and the Citrix server you want to connect to must be on
the same local network.
If you are on another network (for example, if you are on the other
side of a router or across the Internet) you must enter the IP address or
DNS name of a Citrix server on the network that contains the Citrix
server you want to connect to.
Click Add and enter the IP address or DNS name of any Citrix server
on the remote network. Click OK. The Select a Citrix Server or
Published Application screen reappears. Scroll through the list and
select the name of the Citrix server or published application you want
to connect to. Click Next to continue.

To specify an application to run after connecting to a Citrix server
Use the Application tab to specify an application to run after connecting
to a Citrix server. If you specify an application, you do not see the Windows
desktop when you connect and the connection is closed when you exit the
application.
Note: This tab does not apply to connection entries for published
applications. Any values entered are ignored.
In the Command Line field, enter the path and name of an application to
run on the server once the logon to the Citrix server is successful. Leave
this field blank to run a Windows NT desktop on the Citrix server. Working
Directory lets you associate a directory with the application specified in
the Command Line field. Enter the drive and path of the working
directory in the Working Directory field.
For example, if the application Notepad.exe is in the C:\WTSRV directory
on the Citrix server, type C:\WTSRV\Notepad.exe in the Command
Line field. If you use Notepad to work on documents in the C:\My
Documents directory, type C:\My Documents in the Working Directory
field. When you log on to the Citrix server, Notepad begins. In Notepad,
if you click the File menu, the directory C:\My Documents is displayed.
Click Ok to save your changes.

To set connection options
Click Compress Data Stream to reduce the amount of data transferred
between the Visara and the Citrix server hosting the session. (If your
connection is bandwidth-limited, enabling compression may increase
performance. If your Visara is on a high-speed LAN, you may not need
compression.)
The Cache feature is not supported in this release.
Click Enable Sound to enable sound support. Remote applications will
be able to play sounds on your client. From the pull-down list, select a
sound presentation quality level. Full sound support requires external
speakers.
High provides the greatest audio quality but should only be used when
bandwidth consumption is not a concern.
Medium results in less bandwidth consumption than when using High.
Compression of sound data provides greater bandwidth efficiency but
reduces sound quality somewhat. This value is recommended for most
LAN-based connections.
Low offers the most efficient use of bandwidth but also decreases sound
quality severely. This value is recommended for low-bandwidth
connections, including most modem connections.
The Encryption Level feature is not supported in this release.
Click Ok to save your changes.

4. Click OK to save your changes.
Configuring Alternate Address Translation
If the Visara is outside a firewall that uses address remapping, you must
configure the Visara ICA Client to use the alternate address returned by
the master ICA Browser. This is necessary even if you are not using a
SOCKS proxy server.
Note: You must also use the ALTADDR utility to manually set the alternate
address for each Citrix server, See the Command Reference appendix of
either the MetaFrame Administrator’s Guide or the WINFRAME System
Guide for more information.
Note: If you set alternate address translation for all connection entries, it
cannot be disabled for specific connection entries.

Preferences
Use the Preferences tab to change the default window color and other
settings.
The Preferences tab contains the following fields:
Serial Number. This is the serial number of your ICA Client software. This
field is only necessary when you are using the ICA Windows CE Client with
a product such as WINFRAME Host/Terminal, which requires each client to
have a Citrix PC Client Pack serial number in order to connect to the server.
If a serial number is required, you must enter it exactly as it appears on the
Serial Number card. The Serial Number field is not used by MetaFrame
servers.
Default Window Colors. In the Window Colors field, select 16 or 256 colors.
If the window options specified exceed the capabilities of the hardware, the
maximum size and color depth supported by Visara are used instead.
Client Name. This text box allows you to change the client name of your
client device. The Citrix server uses the client name to uniquely identify
resources (such as mapped printers) associated with a given client device.
The client name should be unique for each computer running a copy of a
Citrix ICA Client. If you do not use unique client names, device mapping
and application publishing may not operate correctly. The default value is
the MAC address (unique ethernet interface board ID) of the Visara.
Allow Automatic Client Updates. This feature is not supported in this release.

707027-002
Chapter 8: Citrix ICA Client for Windows CE
Server Location
The ICA Windows CE Client uses the information entered in the Server
Location tab to locate available Citrix servers and published applications.
The default value entered in the list is Auto-Locate. Auto-Locate
automatically searches your network for the Citrix server that maintains
the list of available Citrix servers and published applications. To use AutoLocate, your Visara and the Citrix server or published application you
want to connect to must be on the same local network.
If you are on another network (for example, if you are on the other side of
a router or across the Internet) you must enter the IP address or DNS
name of a Citrix server on the network that contains the Citrix server or
published application you want to connect to. Visara uses this server to
locate the list of available Citrix servers and published applications on
the network.
Use the Add and Delete buttons to add or delete Citrix servers from the
Address list. Use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to order the list
of Citrix servers used for server location. The higher the server appears in
the list, the higher its priority for server location.
You can define a list of servers to contact to determine the master browser.
Up to three groups of Citrix servers can be defined to which you want to
contact: a primary and two backups. The client attempts to contact all the
servers within the Primary group using directed packets; the first server
to respond is then queried for the address of the master ICA Browser. If
none of the servers respond, the client attempts to contact all the servers
within the Backup 1 group. If there is still no response, the client attempts
to contact all of the servers in the Backup 2 group. This process is repeated
each time the user attempts to make an ICA connection.
These options can be set for a particular connection entry or all connection
entries. If both are set, the settings for the connection entry are used.

Appendix A: Remote Configuration
Appendix A: Remote
Configuration
Remote Configuration Of Connections
Remote Configuration allows the Visara to handle Account/User Based
connection configurations. This is a very powerful feature for management
of the Visara configurations from a central location and allows preconfiguration of the Visara connections prior to installation. These
connection configurations are downloaded to the Visara at startup.
Connection configurations determine what servers the user accesses and
the type of connection used for access. Account/User Based connection
configurations allow the user to use any Visara on the network while
retaining their connection configuration. Configurations can be setup on
a user or department basis as required. The configurations are stored on
a central server and are downloaded to the Visara based on the Account
name used at Visara boot time. This feature can be disabled to use
internally stored connection configurations.
Remote Configuration Setup
Use of Remote Configurations is pre-configured as active on a new Visara.
In order for this feature to function correctly a configuration must have
been previously saved to the appropriate server directory and the server
must be configured to support FTP (a standard file transfer protocol).
When using DHCP, the Remote Configuration Utility will default to the
DHCP server for the Remote Configuration information and will try to
down load the configuration information from that server. In order to
minimize setup requirements, one Visara can be configured and the
configuration settings then uploaded to the appropriate server and directory.
Server Setup for Remote Configuration
The server used to store the Remote Configuration files must support
FTP file transfers and FTP must be enabled. In addition, the Visara default
username and password for FTP transfers must be setup on the server by
the System administrator. Using the default Username and password along
with the default directory structure will allow Plug and Play installation
of new Visaras into the Network. The Visara defaults are:
707027-002
Username
visara
Password
visara
Directory
/visara1/userswbt
Appendix A-1
Appendix A: Remote Configuration
To access the configuration file the Visara will append the account name
to the directory structure. Therefore, a user using the account name sales
would have a full directory path of visara1/userswbt/sales. When
establishing the FTP directory and uploading the configuration be certain
to append the account name to the directory path.
The default settings can be changed but this will require entering the new
settings into each Visara when a new configuration is to be downloaded.
We recommend setting up the FTP username visara with read only access.
When uploading settings, the system administrator can use another
username and password to upload configurations to the appropriate
directories. The upload utility will not establish new directories, these
must be pre-established by the system administrator prior to uploading.
Uploading Configuration Files
The ability to upload a Visara’s configuration files provides a convenient
method of managing the connection configurations for all Visaras on the
network. A system administrator can configure one Visara unit and then
make that same configuration available to all units through the Remote
Configuration capability. Once a Visara has been configured the upload
capability can be started through the Admin tab on the Terminal Properties
page. After starting the Visara perform the following:
Click Cancel on this Remote Configuration Utility window to access the
Visara Main Menu. Use the Configure tab on the Main Menu to setup the
appropriate connections. Use the F2 key to access the Terminal Properties
Page and select the Admin tab.
To upload the current connection configuration from the Visara to the
server, insert the correct FTP Servers DNS name or IP address and insert
the path name for the directory path on the server. Note, the last entry in
the directory path must be the account name that will be used by the user
when starting the Visara and the directory path must already exist on the
server. The Login Name and Password fields provide the Username and
Password for the FTP function on the FTP server. When the server settings
are correct click the “Apply” button to begin the “Upload”.
Appendix A-2
707027-002
Appendix A: Remote Configuration
The Remote Configuration status window will open providing FTP status
on the transfer.
Configuration and Upload, Step By Step
1. Connect all Visara cables and turn on the power.
2. The Visara Remote Configuration Utility dialog box will display.
3. Click Cancel, the Visara Remote Configuration Utility startup window
will close. Configure using the Setup Wizard if not previously
configured and the Main Menu will appear.
4. Create the connection(s) which will be used by this Account (see

5. Use the F2 key to access the Terminal Properties page and select the 1.
Admin tab.
6. The Admin window will display with the Configuration FTP Server
settings.
7. Check the FTP Server settings to be certain they match the server
address and path for your FTP server.
8. Append the correct Account name to the Server Path. This is the name
the user will use as an account name at startup.
9. Click Apply.
10.Click the “Upload configuration now” button to perform the upload
function.
11.In the Status window, watch for the message, Successfully uploaded
“/Visara1/userswbt/<Account Name>/Visara.cfg” (### bytes)
12.When this message appears the Cancel button will change to Done.
13.Click Done and you will return to the Terminal Properties page.
14.Select the Admin Tab again. Remove the Account name from the
Server path. Click Apply.
707027-002
Appendix A-3
Appendix A: Remote Configuration
To test your settings use a new Visara with the account name and FTP
server settings you have established. The FTP status window will provide
FTP transfer status and a successful download message upon completion.
Running Remote Configuration at startup
At startup of a new Visara, the first window to open after the Setup Wizard
will be the Remote Configuration Utility startup window. This window
provides a means to specify the account name or user configuration files
to download. The window also allows for disabling of the Remote
Configuration feature.
When using DHCP for IP address assignments it is possible to attain a
true Plug and Play environment for Visara installation. Simply setup the
DHCP server as the FTP server for Remote Configuration download. Upon
startup the user will enter the account name into the Remote Configuration
startup window and click on the start button. The Remote Configuration
Utility will assume the DHCP server is the FTP server and begin the
download function. The startup window will close and the download is
performed. If the download cannot be completed successfully a status
will be displayed in the Remote Configuration status window.
If DHCP is not being used or you wish to setup an alternate server as the
configuration download server then the server DNS name or IP address
must be entered. This is done from the Admin tab on the Terminal
Properties Page. This window also allows entry of the directory path to
the configuration file. In download operations the account name from the
Startup window is appended to this path to complete the directory path to
the location of the configuration file (visara.cfg).

Appendix B: Firmware Update
Appendix B: Firmware Update
Network Update of Application or Operating
System
Firmware Update allows the Visara to be updated over the network
connection through FTP download of Boot Code, applications or the
operating system. This feature allows the administrator to maintain and
update all the Visara systems on the network from a central location.
The Firmware Update function can be set to run automatically or it can be
run only when required. Automatic updating requires no operator
intervention. The settings for the Firmware Update function are handled
by Remote Configuration and can be setup through this utility.
Firmware Update Setup
Firmware Update is pre-configured as inactive on a new Visara. In order
for this feature to function correctly the appropriate server directory and
the server must be configured to support FTP (a standard file transfer
protocol). When using DHCP, the Firmware Update function will default
to the DHCP server and if enabled will try to down load the update
information from that server. In order to minimize setup requirements
the administrator should consider the use of the Visara default parameters
or use the Remote Configuration utility to setup additional units.
Server Setup for Firmware Update
The server used to store the Firmware Update files must support FTP file
transfers and FTP must be enabled. In addition, the Visara default
username and password for FTP transfers should be setup on the server
by the System administrator. An alternate server and FTP settings can be
used but each Visara will need to be configured with these new settings.
The settings can be verified or changed from the Firmware tab of the
Terminal Properties page.
707027-002
Appendix B-1
Appendix B: Firmware Update
The FTP defaults are:
Username
visara
Password
visara
Directory
/visara1/update
The default settings can be changed but this will require entering the new
settings into each Visara when a new configuration is to be downloaded.
We recommend setting up the FTP username visara with read only access.
Running Firmware Update at startup
At startup of a new Visara, the Firmware Update feature is disabled. The
feature can be enabled through Remote Configuration or through the
Firmware tab on the Terminal Properties page. When enabled, Firmware
Update runs immediately after the Remote Configure utility at boot time.
When enabled, the Visara will check the configured server for an ASCII
text file that identifies any updates loaded on the server. If the Visara is
configured to prompt the user prior to updating the software it will do so,
otherwise it will proceed with the update operation. After any updates
the Visara will reboot.
