2.2.1 Display Settings
The monitor supports several kinds of resolutions. If you want to test it, choose the desired resolution
from the list box and click Test. *WARNING* Test any resolution before changing the resolution on your
DLW Term 1422. If you change to a bad resolution without testing you won’t be able to see your desktop!
2.2.2 Locale
Set up the appropriate geographic region (keyboard settings) for your keyboard.
2.2.3 Network Configuration
Network attached device must contain a unique network identifier. If the network is using TCP/IP as
a communication protocol, these identifiers are called IP addresses. The next few steps will allow you to
choose the method you wish to assign your IP address with. 2.2.3.1 Use the IP information supplied by
DHCP.
If your network provides DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) service and you want it to
provide the terminals IP information, leave the first option selected.
The thin client can get its IP address through a DHCP service by default. The DHCP will
8
automatically assign an IP address that is drawn from a pool of available IP addresses, when a terminal
unit is powered on and a request is broadcast over the network.
Use the IP information supplied by DHCP. If you need to specify static IP address for the terminal,
select the second option. The option is selected automatically if your network does not provide a DHCP
service, or if the unit is not properly connected to the network. In these cases, leave the second option
selected.
IP Address
2.2.3.1
Specify an IP address
If the method you selected on the previous screen was to enter static IP address, the screen shown
below will then appear. You will be required to enter the following information onto the screen.
IP address
Required for identifying this unit to the network. The format will follow the standard addressing format.
Subnet Mask
Required for designating which network the IP address is a part of.
Gateway
Optional address which identifies the machine through which a subnet communicates with another
network.
Specify an IP Address
2.2.3.2
Name Servers
The screen shown below will appear only if you choose the Static IP Addressing method. The DHCP
method will provide this information required using a name resolution service. Terminal servers typically
support both DNS (Domain Naming Service) and WINS (Windows Internet Naming Service) name
9
resolution services. This screen allows the terminal unit to use one or both of these resolution services.
To enable DNS, WINS, or both, check the corresponding box. In the text boxes, enter the following
information as appropriate for each. Click OK.
Name Servers

you are connecting to and has been enabled. See your MetaFrame server documentation for
more details.
To change Speed Screen settings
In the Speed Screen section there are two list boxes, Local Text Echo and Mouse Click
Feedback. Local Text Echo accelerates display of the input text, effectively shielding you
from experiencing latency on the network. Mouse Click Feedback provides visual feedback
of a mouse click, in that the mouse pointer is immediately changed to an hourglass indicator.
Select a mode from the drop-down list:
-
a. For slower connections (for example if you are connecting over a WAN or a dial-in
b.

Auto mode using the Toggle Speed Screen hotkey.
Local text echo does not support input using IME.
g. Enable Sound
Click Enable Sound to enable sound support. From the pull-down list, select one of the following quality
levels.
- High. This mode provides the greatest audio quality but should be used only when bandwidth
consumption is not a concern.

Compression of sound data provides greater bandwidth efficiency but reduces sound quality
somewhat. This value is recommended for most LAN-based connections.
- Low. This mode 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.

Improving Performance over a Low-Bandwidth
Connection
If you are using ICA over a low-bandwidth connection, such as a modem or cellular telephone, there are
a number of changes that you can make to your client configuration and the way you use the client to
improve performance.

Change your ICA Client configuration—Changing your client configuration, as described below,
can reduce the bandwidth that ICA requires and improve performance

Change the way you use the client—Changing the way you use the client can also reduce the
bandwidth required for a high-performance connection

Use the latest MetaFrame server and ICA Clients—Citrix is continually enhancing and improving
ICA performance with each release, and many performance features require the latest client and
server software in order to function.
Changing your ICA Client Configuration
On devices with limited processing power, or where limited bandwidth is available, there is a trade-off
between performance and functionality. The ICA Client provides both user and administrator with the
59
ability to choose an acceptable mixture of rich functionality and interactive performance. Making one or
more of these changes can reduce the bandwidth that your connection requires and improve
performance.
Enable the Bitmap Cache
Bitmap caching stores commonly-used bitmaps (images) locally on your client so that they do not have to
be transferred over the ICA connection every time they are needed.
-
To enable bitmap caching
1.
From the ICA Client window, select the connection entry that you want to change.
2.
From the Properties page, select Connection from the drop-down list to display the
Connection page.
3.
Select Use Disk Cache for Bitmaps. Click OK.
Data Compression
Data compression reduces the amount of data transferring across the ICA session. This requires
additional processor resources to compress and decompress the data, but it can increase performance
over bandwidth-limited connections.
-
To enable data compression
1.
From the ICA Client window, select the connection entry that you want to change.
2.
From the Properties page, select Connection from the drop-down list to display the
Connection page.
3.
Select Use Data Compression to reduce the amount of data transferring across the ICA
session.
SpeedScreen Latency Reduction
SpeedScreen Latency Reduction improves performance over high latency connections by
providing instant feedback to the user in response to typed data or mouse clicks.
NOTE:
-
SpeedScreen Latency Reduction will work only when it is available on the MetaFrame server
you are connecting to and has been enabled. See your MetaFrame server documentation for
more details.
To change SpeedScreen settings
1.
From the ICA Client window, select the connection entry that you want to change.
2.
From the Properties page, select Connection from the drop-down list to display the
Connection page.
3.
In the SpeedScreen section there are two list boxes, Local Text Echo and Mouse Click
Feedback. Local Text Echo accelerates display of the input text, effectively shielding you
from experiencing latency on the network. Mouse Click Feedback provides visual feedback
of a mouse click, in that the mouse pointer is immediately changed to an hourglass indicator.
Select a mode from the drop-down list:
a. For slower connections (for example if you are connecting over a WAN or a dial-in
connection), set mode to On to decrease the delay between user input and screen
display.
b. For faster connections (for example, if you are connecting over a LAN), set mode to Off.
c. If you are not certain of the connection speed, set the mode to Auto to turn
SpeedScreen on or off depending on the latency of the connection. You can override
Auto mode using the Toggle SpeedScreen hotkey.
NOTE:
Local text echo does not support input using IME.
60
Reduce the Window Size
Change the window size to the minimum you can comfortably use.
Reduce the Number of Colors
Reduce the number of colors to 256.
Reduce Sound Quality
If you are using sound, reduce the sound quality to the minimum setting or disable client audio
mapping.
Changing the Way You Use the Client
ICA technology is highly optimized and typically does not have high CPU and bandwidth requirements.
However, if you are using a very low-bandwidth connection, you should consider the following to preserve
performance:
1.
Avoid accessing large files using client drive mapping. When you access a large file with
client drive mapping, the file is transferred over the ICA connection. On slow connections,
this may take a long time.
2.
Avoid printing large documents on local client printers. When you print a document on a
local client printer, the print file is transferred over the ICA connection. On slow connections,
this may take a long time.
3.
Avoid playing multimedia content. Playing multimedia content uses a lot of bandwidth and
can cause reduced performance.
6.1.2.3.3
Specifying an Application to Run at Connection
Use the Application page in the Properties dialog box to specify an application to run when you connect
using the connection entry. If you specify an application, you will not see the MetaFrame server desktop

Configuring Hotkeys
Hotkeys are used to control the behavior of the client and as substitutes for the standard Windows
hotkeys for a published application. For example, if you wanted to close the current window on a
Windows PC, you would press ALT+F4. This key combination closes the session in X Windows. Hotkey
functionality allows you to map common key combinations like ALT+F4 to a key combination such as
ALT+CTRL+F4 that will be ignored by your local operating system. When you press this new combination,
the ICA UNIX Client will send ALT+F4 to the MetaFrame server, closing the current window.
-
To display the hotkey settings
1.
From the Settings page, select Hotkeys from the drop-down list:
2.
On the Hotkeys pages, you can define alternative key combinations for the hotkeys <Alt>
<F1> to <Alt> <F12>, ALT+TAB, ALT+SHIFT+TAB, and Toggle Speed screen, -which are
reserved for use by X Windows.
3.
By default, these key combinations are generated by <Alt> <Ctrl> <F1> to <Alt> <Ctrl> <F12>,
but you can change the definitions by selecting alternative keys from the pop-up menus.
4.
Any <Alt> key combinations not used by your X Window manager can be used as normal
within the ICA session.
NOTE:
If you want to use the PC key combination <Ctrl> <Alt> <Delete> during the connection
session, use the key combination <Ctrl> <Alt> <Enter> or <Ctrl> <Alt> <Return>.

6.1.3 VNC Client Viewer
Virtual network computing (VNC) is a great tool for remote desktop viewing and manipulation. Its core
function is to allow the user to use the VNC client to connect to a host running the VNC server and
remotely uses the server's desktop. VNC software makes it possible to view and fully-interact with one
computer from any other computer or mobile device anywhere on the Internet. Keyboard and mouse
updates are sent to the server, and snapshots of the server's desktop are compressed and sent back to
the client via the VNC protocol. The figure is shown below.
