NeoLinux Appliance User Manual
Introduction
This chapter describes the purpose and main topics of this manual,
as well as the basic features of the Neoware appliances.
Overview
Purpose and
intended readers
This manual explains how to use Neoware appliances that are running Neoware NeoLinux Software Release 2.3. It’s intended primarily for administrators and users of NeoLinux on the Neoware
appliances. (For instructions about determining which release version of software is running on your thin client appliance, see
“Determining the Release Version of Your Software” on page 10.)
Topics covered
We recommend that you read the chapters in this manual in order.
The main topics covered are:
• Unpacking and setting up your appliance.
• Configuring your appliance for your network.
• Changing settings on your appliance.
• Creating and using connections to servers, mainframes, and
intranets.
1
Introduction
The appendixes cover additional topics that you may need to know.
What is an Computing Appliance?
A new way to use
Windows
Thin client appliances are smart devices that provide access to programs running on network servers. Once a connection is made to a
server, depending on the version of software installed, you can use
your favorite Windows programs such as Microsoft Office or
Adobe Photoshop in the familiar Windows desktop, connect to
LINUX/UNIX servers, mainframes and minicomputers via telnet,
appliance emulations, and X Window connections, and connect to
intranet / Internet applications through Netscape Navigator.
Generally as you work, your thin client appliance sends keystrokes
and mouse clicks to the server, which responds with screen updates
for your monitor. Most of the processing occurs on the server. Due to
the speed of modern computer networks, this exchange happens as
fast, if not faster, than processing on a personal computer.
Thin client appliances aren’t difficult to use. If you know how to use
a personal computer, or even if you don’t, you can use an computing
appliance.
ezConnect
2
Neoware ezConnect, the NeoLinux connection manager, consists of
a simple, easy, and highly customizable user interface for Linux that
shields users from the complexity of the Linux operating system,
and is designed specifically for thin client appliance computing
applications. ezConnect allows users or administrators to create a
variety of connections to run Microsoft Windows applications on
servers, UNIX applications via the X Window protocol, terminal
connections to mainframes and minicomputers, Netscape Navigator
Internet sessions for applications such as kiosks, and custom connections to launch virtually any Linux application. ezConnect also
allows users to customize the operation of the appliance.
What is an Computing Appliance?
Introduction
Neoware
Appliances
Neoware thin client appliances are sleek computing devices that
have no hard drive, fan, or other moving parts, which makes them
extremely reliable, as well as silent. They use standard VGA,
SVGA, and XVGA-type monitors, PS/2 mouse and keyboard, and
pointing devices. Different models may contain different configurations of parallel port, serial port(s), and USB ports for peripheral
devices that may include printers, modems, floppy drives, zip drives,
cd-roms, and bar code scanners. The version of software installed in
your thin client appliance will dictate which types of peripherals
may be used.
Your appliance can automatically connect to either 10BaseT or
100BaseT (twisted-pair) Ethernet networks, as well as make serial
port connections with or without a modem.
Embedded
NeoLinux Software
Your appliance arrives with Neoware’s NeoLinux software preinstalled. This software is installed in the local Flash disk memory
internally installed in your appliance.
Note: This manual is intended to cover a number of different Eon
and Capio thin client appliance models. Since the primary difference
between the different models is the selection of client software
included with each model, this manual may contain references to clients that are not included in your particular model. Here are the clients currently supported in the various Eon and Capio models:

Introduction
NeoLinux provides powerful and flexible computing capabilities for
networks that have many types of servers as well as Web pages.
Using NeoLinux, your appliance can start simultaneous, multiple
connections to Windows 2000 Servers, Windows NT Terminal Servers, UNIX-based servers, mainframes, minicomputers, intranets, and
the Internet, depending on the software version installed in the appliance.
FYI
To make Windows connections using ICA, the
server must be running
Citrix MetaFrame‚, WinFrame‚, or Citrix Device
Services (CDS).
Connections to Windows 2000 Server and NT-based servers are
made via Citrix’s Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) protocol, as well as Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). Access to UNIXbased servers can be made by telnet connections and by X Window
protocols. In addition, the optional teemX suite provides more than
30 terminal emulations.
NeoLinux supports DHCP and BOOTP remote configuration services, and NFS file transfer protocol. It also includes a local
Netscape Navigator browser in some models.

CHAPTER 2
Configuring Your
Network Settings
This chapter describes how to initially configure your appliance
for your network.
Selecting the Network Settings
Do you need to
configure?
FYI
DHCP and BOOTP automatically supply the IP
address and other setting for your appliance
when it starts up.
Accessing Network
Settings
To use your appliance on a network, it must be assigned a unique
Internet Protocol (IP) address for identification. Your network may
also require a few other settings.
If your network uses a remote configuration service such as the
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) or the Bootstrap
Protocol (BOOTP), your appliance may not need to be configured.
In that case, all you do is turn on your appliance. Ask your system
administrator if your network uses DHCP or BOOTP.
To configure your appliance’s network settings, select Settings |
Appliance Properties | Network from the ezConnect (Neoware
Connection Manager) menu bar or press the F2 key.

ber. Specify how broadcast requests are sent from your
appliance to the network. Typically the setting is
255.255.255.255 or 0.0.0.0. Ask your system administrator.
Speed: Select the bandwidth speed of your network Ethernet connection. This setting will only affect the onboard
Realtek Ethernet on your appliance’s motherboard. The
default AutoSense setting should be selected unless your
network environment requires manually selecting speed
and duplex mode.
Edit Default Values: Click here if you would like to manually edit the Client Name, Default Domain, Primary and
Secondary DNS Server, and Default Gateway settings.
Note: These values may be overridden by DHCP values.
Client Name: If needed, enter a client name. This name is
used by UNIX/Linux systems as a hostname and by ICA
and RDP servers as a Client Name. The default client name
utilizes the last six digits of the device’s MAC address as
the last six digits of the Client Name. Since the serial number of each Eon and Capio also ends in the last six digits of
the MAC address, the Client Name enables easy asset management when used in conjunction with ezRemote Manager, the remote thin client appliance management tool
provided by Neoware.
FYI
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is a serverbased program that
translates server names
into IP addresses.
Default Domain: If needed, type the domain name used by
your local network for DNS (Domain Name Service). For
example: neoware.com Ask your system administrator.
Primary DNS Server: If needed, type the IP address of a
DNS server on your network. For Netscape Navigator to
work properly, you should enter an address in this field.
Secondary DNS Server: If desired, type the IP address of a
second DNS server available to your appliance on the network.
Default Gateway: If your appliance and the DNS servers,
or other routinely accessed servers, are on different netSelecting the Network Settings

works, type the IP address of the router or gateway computer that connects them.
ezUpdate Settings
Click on the ezUpdate Settings button on the Network Settings dialog to access the ezUpdate Settings dialog.
The default ezUpdate
settings allow an
unconfigured appliance
to automatically receive
configuration and
software updates from
an ezUpdate server.
• ezUpdate Automatic Appliance Configuration
ezUpdate is the mechanism that allows Neoware thin client
appliances to be automatically updated from servers. For
detailed information about setting up an ezUpdate server, and
how to configure a DHCP server to provide the necessary information to Neoware thin client appliances so that they can
receive ezUpdate server updates, please see the ezRemote Manager User Manual available from
http://www.neoware.com/manuals.html
ezUpdate servers can provide the following types of automatic
configuration updates:
16
Selecting the Network Settings
Configuring Your Network Settings
• Full image software updates
• Modular software updates (snap-ins)
• Thin client appliance connection definitions
• Thin client appliance device configurations
• ezUpdate Settings dialog
Enable automatic configuration and software updates: By
default, the checkbox is checked. This allows the appliance to
automatically receive and apply configuration and software
updates. Since this is the default configuration, once an ezUpdate server is configured with supporting DHCP tags, newly
installed thin client appliances will automatically be configured
at first bootup.
Override manual settings with DHCP tag: By default, the
checkbox is checked and DHCP tag 137 is monitored. With this
checkbox checked, whenever a thin client appliance receives
DHCP information and DHCP tag 137 (or other tag number if
entered here) is defined with information pointing to an ezUpdate server, the appliance will boot using the ezUpdate configuration. ezUpdate settings override local thin client settings
unless this checkbox is unchecked.
Server access time out: By default, the time out is set to 20 seconds. If the ezUpdate server does not respond within 20 seconds,
the thin client appliance will boot as if it did not receive information in DHCP tag 137 (or tag number as redefined).
ezUpdate script file: By default, the script file name that is initially obtained from the ezUpdate server is netconfig.nl.
Appliance profile: By default, the profile name field is empty.
If you wish to maintain multiple device configurations using
ezUpdate, the appliance profile name can be used. Creating separate profiles on the ezUpdate server allows you to point one or
more appliances to a specific profile using this field.
Specify manual settings: By default, this checkbox is
unchecked. This allows administrators who are configuring an

ezUpdate settings for one or more appliances. This provides the
ability to test a new configuration without exposing all installed
appliances to the untested profile. By checking this checkbox,
and using the manual settings fields below (which are not grayed
out when the checkbox is checked), an individual appliance can
test a configuration on any server.
Protocol: By default, this setting is not available. If the Specify
manual settings checkbox is checked, you can choose between
ftp and nfs protocols for the ezUpdate download.
Set DHCP server as ezUpdate server: By default, this setting
is not available. If the Specify manual settings checkbox is
checked, and this checkbox is unchecked, you can define a
server other than the DHCP server to provide the ezUpdate software or configurations.
Directory: By default, this setting is not available. If the Specify
manual settings checkbox is checked, you can define a directory
or path within the ezUpdate directory structure other than the
default /neoware.
Username: By default, this setting is not available. If the Specify manual settings checkbox is checked, you can define a username for accessing the ezUpdate server.
Password: By default, this setting is not available. If the Specify
manual settings checkbox is checked, you can define a password
to be used with the username for accessing the ezUpdate server.

connection you are creating. When finished, click Next.
Note: There are four types of XDM sessions: direct, chooser,
indirect, and broadcast. Direct requires you to specify the server
you will connect to using this connection. Chooser presents a list
of possible servers to the user at connection time. This list consists of a combination of servers located by a broadcast and servers specified by an administrator in the Server Settings dialog (for
more information about preconfiguring XDM server lists, see “X
Window tab” on page 31.) Indirect works like direct but allows
the specified server to redirect you to another server. Broadcast
will connect to the first server that responds to a location broadcast.
4 In the Configure Display Settings dialog, adjust your display
resolution and color palette. Additionally, you can enable a
screen saver and determine the type and timeout.
The display settings for X Window connections can be any
desired resolution and color depth supported by the thin client
appliance, even if they are different from the ones set in ezConnect for the standard appliance desktop. However, setting different resolutions can increase the time required to switch between
connections / sessions.

CHAPTER 11
Using the NeoLinux
Desktop
This chapter explains how to use the NeoLinux desktop to manage
your program windows.
Getting Started
Overview
Many other thin clients use full screen connections only, requiring
the user to know keyboard short-cuts in order to switch between
multiple connections. In addition to full screen connections,
NeoLinux allows the user to create windowed connections,
between which they can easily switch at the click of a mouse.
After you start a windowed connection, that connection will appear
upon the NeoLinux desktop. The NeoLinux desktop is a graphical
user interface that lets you manage multiple windows.
81
Using the NeoLinux Desktop
Using the Taskbar
The NeoLinux taskbar is a movable control bar. Every open Windows connection and NeoLinux window has a taskbar button.
• To open the Neoware menu, click the Neoware button on the
taskbar. Then click a menu item to select it.
To open the NeoLinux menu,
click the Neoware button.
To select a window, click its
taskbar button.
• To select a window or connection, even when it isn’t on the cur-
Note
Your system administrator can hide the
NeoLinux taskbar so
that it appears as a thin
line. When you point to
this line, the taskbar
appears. When you
point away from taskbar, the taskbar hides
again.
Using the Desktop
Divider
rent NeoLinux desktop, left-click its taskbar button. To learn how
to use NeoLinux windows, see page 83.
• To move the taskbar, middle-click and drag the edge of the taskbar beyond the middle of the desktop. Then release the mouse
button, and the taskbar moves to the top or bottom.
• To resize the taskbar, left-click and drag an edge of the taskbar.
As you open more windows, you may want to enlarge the taskbar
to make its buttons more readable.
• To display the window properties, right-click its taskbar button.
To close a Properties box, click it.
The Desktop Divider, that resides on the right hand side of the taskbar, is a miniature representation of four desktops in which you can
open and move NeoLinux windows. In effect, the Desktop Divider
quadruples the work space available on the NeoLinux desktop.
• To display a NeoLinux desktop, left-click one of the colored
squares in the Desktop Divider in order to access the desktop it
represents.
• To move windows between NeoLinux desktops, Left-click on
the computer icon in the upper left-hand corner of the window
you would like to move. Highlight the Move to desk option in the
drop-down menu, and then from the drill down menu select a
Desk to place the window.

Appendix A: Advanced
NeoLinux Configuration
This appendix discusses advanced configuration procedures for
Neolinux based appliances.
Enabling the USB Controller in the appliance BIOS
If you are using Neoware computing appliance that were shipped
prior to July 1, 2001, then you will need to enable the USB controller in the BIOS of your appliance in order to install and use USB
devices. In devices shipped after July 1, 2001, the USB controller
will already be enabled. Please carefully follow the instructions
below in order to enable the USB controller in the appliance BIOS.
Note: Avoid changing other settings in the appliance BIOS as it
can cause the appliance to not function properly.
Setting the USB
Controller setting in
the BIOS to Enabled
1 From the ezConnect - Neoware Connection Manager select
Connection | Session | Restart in order to Restart your appliance.
2 When the Neoware Logo appears on the screen, press the Delete
key in order to enter the BIOS configuration.
3 When the CMOS Setup Utility appears, select the Chipset Features Setup with the directional arrow keys and hit the Enter
key.
4 When the Chipset Features Setup appears, select the USB controller setting with the directional arrow keys so that the setting
"Disabled" is highlighted in red.
Note: If the USB Controller setting highlight in red is
85
"Enabled" then skip to step 6.
5 Hit the Page Down or Page Up key once to set the USB Controller to "Enabled."
6 Hit the escape key (ESC) to exit the Chipset Features Setup and
return to the CMOS Setup Utility.
7 Hit the F10 key to Save the BIOS configuration and exit the setup
utility.
Your appliance will reboot and you can now install (see “Connecting
USB peripheral devices for use with Citrix ICA” on page 8) and use
USB peripheral devices.
Setting your appliance to ignore BOOTP or DHCP responses
NeoLinux 2.1 has the capability of allowing the user to set their
Ethernet controller to ignore BOOTP or DHCP responses from the
server. In order for this to be accomplished, it is necessary to edit the
pump.conf configuration file in the /writable/sys directory of your
NeoLinux file system.
Editing the
pump.conf
configuration file to
ignore BOOTP or
DHCP responses
1 Open an appliance console by selecting Settings | Appliance
Properties | Console from the ezConnect menu bar.
2 At the bash$ prompt type su and hit enter to login as the superuser. When prompted type the appliance password and hit enter.
Note: If you have not set an appliance password, you will need to
do so for this operation. For instruction on setting the appliance
password see “Security” on page 25.
3 At the bash# prompt type e3pi /writable/sys/pump.conf and hit
enter in order to open the pump.conf file in the e3pi text editor.
4 When the e3pi text editor appears, place the cursor at the end of
the pump.conf file and add the following device entry:
device eth0 {
ignore-dhcp
}
86
Setting your appliance to ignore BOOTP or DHCP responses
Note: The device entry example above is used to set the appliance to ignore DHCP responses. In order to ignore BOOTP
responses replace the ignore-dhcp line with ignore-bootp.
5 Type CTRL-O to save the pump.conf file.
6 Type CTRL-X to exit the e3pi text editor.
7 Restart the appliance by selecting Connection | Session | Restart
from the ezConnect menu bar.
