Introduction
Wyse® WintermTM 3 series Thin Clients use Windows™ CE operating system. These thin
clients provide access to applications, files, and network resources made available on
machines hosting Citrix™ ICA and Microsoft™ RDP session services. Thin client
emulation software is installed locally by default. Other locally installed software permits
remote administration of the thin clients and provides local maintenance functions.
Session and network services available on enterprise networks may be accessed through
a direct Intranet connection, a dial-up server, or an ISP which provides access to the
Internet and thus permits the thin client to connect to an enterprise VPN (virtual private
network) server.

Establishing a Server Environment
This chapter contains information on the network architecture and enterprise server
environment needed to provide network and session services for Wyse® WintermTM 3
series Thin Clients. It also includes information to help you to address important
considerations when configuring access to the server environment and when configuring
the services to be provided by the server environment.
Setting-Up Access to the Enterprise Servers
There are five basic methods of access to the enterprise server environment available to
the thin client. Except for Ethernet Direct, all of the access methods require that some
local settings be made on the thin client. These local settings are retained and are
available for the next thin client system start. Activating these local settings and the
defined connections can also be automated at thin client system start.
Methods of access include:
•
Ethernet Direct - This is a connection from the thin client Ethernet port directly to the
enterprise intranet. No additional hardware is required. In this configuration all network
services may be used, including the enterprise DHCP server. A DHCP server on the
network can provide not only the thin client IP address, but also the location of the file
server containing the software updates. For more information on DHCP, refer to "Using
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)" and "Configuring DHCP Options."
•
Wireless Direct - A supported wireless adapter can be used to access the enterprise
intranet. A wireless adapter uses short-range wide-band radio to communicate with a
wireless access point. Typically, wireless access points are located at several locations
in the enterprise within range of the wireless adapters and directly connected to the
enterprise intranet. For more information on available wireless network devices and
wireless Add-on support available from Wyse, refer to the Add-on Administrators
Guide: Wyse® WintermTM 3 series, Based on Microsoft® Windows® CE.
•
PPPoE - Thin client support for PPPoE is intended for devices which connect to the
Internet directly from remote locations. The PPPoE Connection Wizard can be used
and is available from the desktop or the Connection Manager to configure and invoke
PPPoE connection to WAN. Once connected, all packets are through a PPP
connection over Ethernet to the DSL modem. For more information on the PPPoE
Connection Wizard, refer to "Creating and Configuring PPPoE Connections."
•
Dial-up Modem - A dial-up modem can be used with the thin client to access a dial-up
server. The dial-up server must be a Microsoft Remote Access Server or another
server that supports industry-standard protocols. The dial-up server can provide either
of the following methods of access to the enterprise intranet:
•
Direct access - An enterprise dial-up server directly connects to the enterprise
intranet.
•
Indirect access - An Internet Service Provider (ISP) dial-up server simply provides
access to the Internet, from which the thin client accesses an enterprise PPTP VPN
server that connects to the enterprise intranet.
4
Chapter 2
•
VPN (PPTP) - PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) is a network protocol that
enables the secure transfer of data between a remote client (in this case the thin client)
and an enterprise server environment by creating a virtual private network (VPN)
across TCP/IP-based data networks such as the Internet. It provides a
password-protected path through the enterprise firewall to the enterprise server
environment in which the network and session services required by thin clients reside.
An Internet Service Provider (ISP) must be available to provide access to the Internet.
Any of the standard means of connecting to the ISP may be used, such as a dial-up
modem, cable modem, and DSL modem. The connection to the ISP must be
established first, before contacting the enterprise PPTP VPN server. This includes
dial-up access as well as direct access through the cable modem and DSL modem
paths. For more information on the VPN Connection Wizard, refer to "Creating and
Configuring VPN (PPTP) Client Connections."
Understanding the Network Services Used and Provided by the Thin
Client
Setting-up network services allows users to initiate connections to the enterprise servers
providing ICA, RDP and other services. Network services used by the thin client include
DHCP and FTP file services, DNS, and LPD.
Note
The thin client can act as an LPR client and use the LPD services provided
by other nodes on the network. In addition, the thin client can act as an LPD
server and provide print services to other nodes on the network.
Using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
A thin client is initially configured to obtain its IP address and network configurations from
a DHCP server (new thin client or a thin client reset to default configurations). A DHCP
server can also provide the IP address or DNS name of the FTP server and the FTP
root-path location of the upgrade images for access through the DHCP upgrade process.
Using DHCP to configure and upgrade thin clients saves you the time and effort needed to
complete these processes locally on multiple thin clients.
Note
If a particular thin client is to function as an LPD print server, it should be
assigned a fixed IP address. However, you can also guarantee that an LPD
server will get the same IP address every time by making a reservation for
that thin client in the DHCP server. In that way, you can preserve the
stateless nature of the thin client and still guarantee a fixed address for the
server. In fact, you can assign a symbolic name to the reservation address
so that other thin clients can reference the LPD server by name rather than
by static IP address (the symbolic name must be registered with a DNS
server before other thin clients will be able to locate this LPD server). The
thin client does not dynamically register its name and the DNS registration
must be manual.
5
Establishing a Server Environment
The DHCP options listed in Table 1 are accepted by the thin clients. For more information
on configuring the DHCP Options dialog box, refer to "Configuring DHCP Options."
Note
Use of DHCP is recommended. If a DHCP server is not available, fixed IP
addresses can be assigned (this does, however, reduce the stateless
functionality of the thin clients) and must be entered locally for each device.

Using FTP File Servers
Upgrade images used by the DHCP upgrade and FTP Pull Firmware upgrade processes
are stored on the FTP server in a directory in the FTP root path (this server name and
root-path directory must be made available to the thin client).
If Automatic DHCP upgrades are used, these items must be entered in the server DHCP
Options. The DHCP values to use are located in Table 1, "DHCP Options" and are
configured in the DHCP Options dialog box (defaults are 161 and 162, respectively). The
FTP server must provide anonymous log-on capability. For more information on the DHCP
Options dialog box, refer to "Configuring DHCP Options."
If FTP Pull Firmware upgrades are used, these items must be entered in the Upgrade
dialog box on the thin client, along with the Login name and password (the default name
and password are both anonymous). For more information on the FTP Pull Firmware
upgrade process, refer to "Performing FTP Pull Firmware Upgrades."
Note
Params.ini, Bootstrap212.exe, and the Bin file along with the update
firmware must be present on your FTP server to upgrade the thin client.
Upgrade software packages can be obtained through Wyse customer
support.
When the thin client boots, it accesses the software update images from the FTP file
server. The FTP file server and path to the update files are available through DHCP
vendor options 161 and 162 (see "Using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)").
Establishing a Server Environment
7
Using DNS
Thin clients accept valid DNS names registered on a DNS server available to the
enterprise intranet. The thin client will query a DNS server on the network for name to IP
resolution. In most cases DNS is not required but may be used to allow hosts to be
accessed by their registered DNS names rather than their IP addresses. Every Windows
DNS server in Windows 2000 and later includes Dynamic DNS (DDNS) and every server
registers dynamically with the DNS server. However, the thin client does not do dynamic
registration and therefore, requires a static or non-variant IP address and manual DNS
registration in order to provide LPD support by name (for example, in the case where the
thin client is used as an LPD printer server). For DHCP entry of DNS domain and server
location information, refer to "Using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)."
Configuring and Providing Line Printer Daemon (LPD) Services
A thin client can be configured to provide Line Printer Daemon (LPD) services (making the
thin client a printer server receiving print jobs from one or more clients and spooling these
jobs to a designated physical port). The LPD server receives print jobs sent to a named
line printer queue from the LPR client and prints them on the designated printer.
For more information on LPD configuration, refer to the Users Guide: Wyse® WintermTM 3
series, Based on Microsoft® Windows® CE.
A thin client can also be configured as an LPR client. LPR is a component of the Line
Printer Daemon Protocol. LPR is a client sending a print job to a server. LPR works in
conjunction with the Line Printer Daemon (LPD) server by assigning a print job to a named
line printer queue managed by the LPD server. The LPD is a server receiving print tasks
from one or more clients and spooling these jobs to a physical port.
For more information on LPR configuration, refer to the Users Guide: Wyse® WintermTM 3
series, Based on Microsoft® Windows® CE.
Understanding Session Services
Thin-client session services are made available by servers hosting Citrix ICA and
Microsoft RDP software products.
Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) is a three-tier, server-based computing
technology that separates the logic of an application from its user interface. The ICA client
software installed on the thin client allows the user to interact with the application GUI,
while all of the application processes are executed on the server. For information on
configuring ICA, refer to "Configuring ICA Session Services."
Using the ICA Program Neighborhood Agent (PNAgent) in conjunction with NFuse Classic
or the Web Interface, you can integrate published resources with user desktops. Users
access remote applications, desktops, and content by clicking icons on their Windows
desktop or in the Start menu.
The PNAgent includes the following functions:
•
User authentication - The thin client presents user credentials to the MetaFrame XP
server when users try to connect and, if configured to do so by you the administrator,
every time users launch published resources.
•
Application and content enumeration - The thin client presents users with their
individual set of published resources.
•
Application launching - The thin client is the local engine used to launch published
applications.
8
Chapter 2
•
Desktop integration - The thin client integrates a user set of published resources with
that user desktop.
•
User preferences - The thin client validates and implements local user preferences.
For more information on the configuring ICA session services, refer to "Configuring ICA
Session Services."
For more information on the PNAgent, refer to "Configuring and Using the PNAgent."
Note
The ICA server must be licensed from Citrix Systems, Inc. You must
purchase enough client licenses to support the total concurrent thin client
load placed on the Citrix server farm. A failure to connect when all client
seats are occupied does not represent a failure of Wyse equipment. The ICA
client software is installed on the thin client.
Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a network protocol that allows a thin client to
communicate with the Terminal Server or Windows 2000/2003 Server with Terminal
Services over the network. This protocol is based on the T.120 protocol suite, an
international standard multi-channel conferencing protocol. The thin client supports RDP
version 5.x. For information on configuring RDP, refer to "Configuring RDP Session
Services."
Configuring ICA Session Services
ICA session services can be made available on the network using either of the following
services:
•
Windows 2000 or 2003 Server with Terminal Services and one of the following
installed:
•
Citrix MetaFrame XP
•
Citrix Presentation Server
Use the instructions accompanying these products to install them and make sessions and
applications available to the thin clients sharing the server environment.
Note
If a Windows 2000 or 2003 Server is used, a Terminal Services Client
Access License (TSCAL) server must also reside somewhere on the
network. The server will grant a temporary (90-day) license on an individual
device basis. Beyond the temporary (90-day) license, you must purchase
TSCALs and install them on the TSCAL server (you will not be able to make
a connection without a temporary or permanent license).
Establishing a Server Environment
9
Configuring and Using the PNAgent
The Program Neighborhood Agent (PNAgent) allows users to connect (without using a
Web browser) to a server running the Web interface and access all published applications
in the server farm. Users do not have to manually configure a connection to each
application as they do with the Connection Manager. The PNAgent also provides single
sign-on. That is, when users logon at the start of a session, they do not need to use logon
credentials again during that session (even if they connect to different applications).
Use the following guidelines for configuring and using the PNAgent:
•
Ensure that the configuration file on the server has suitable settings for users. Use the
Program Neighborhood Agent Administration tool to check the default settings and
change them if necessary. For procedures on configuring the settings on the server,
refer to "Configuring PNAgent Settings on the Web Interface Server."
•
Users who wish to connect using the PNAgent must then enable it on their thin client
(users can also customize their settings). For procedures on enabling and customizing
the PNAgent on the thin client, refer to the Users Guide: Wyse® WintermTM 3 series,
Based on Microsoft® Windows® CE.
Once users have the settings they require, they connect to the server, are prompted to
authenticate, and are presented with a list of the available applications.
Note
Connections will be populated in the thin client Connection Manager (if the
Standard Desktop UI option is selected) or to the user desktop (if the New
Desktop option is selected). For information on selecting a desktop option,
refer to "Selecting a Thin Client Desktop Option."
Configuring PNAgent Settings on the Web Interface Server
The PNAgent configuration settings are stored on the server in a file called Config.xml.
Administrators can edit this file using the Program Neighborhood Administration tool
(Admin tool), which provides an easy-to-use interface to the file parameters.
Caution
The settings in the configuration file are global. Therefore, the settings and
any changes you make to them affect all users connecting to the file.
You can modify the default settings for all users, and can allow or deny users the ability to
do any of the following:
•
Select their own options for an ICA connection.
•
Change their connection to a different server URL.
When a user enables the PNAgent on the thin client and connects to the server URL, the
thin client reads the configuration data from the server. The settings configured using the
Admin tool affect all users of this configuration file. The options and their settings are
displayed in the thin client.
To access the PNAgent Admin tool, connect to the following URL on the server running
the Web interface:
http://servername/Citrix/PNAgentAdmin/
The PNAgent Admin tool enables you to specify:
•
Which tabs users see in their Global ICA Client Settings dialog box - Users can see a
maximum of two tabs in the Global ICA Client Settings dialog box. The Options tab (to
select the preferences for a session) and Server tab (to select the server URL to which
10
Chapter 2
they want to connect). To hide or display a tab, use the Client Tab Control option in the
PNAgent Admin tool to make the configurations. Note that to hide or display the
Options tab, administrators must use Session Options within the Client Tab Control
option.
•
Server connections - To specify the URL to which users can connect, use the Server
Settings option in the PNAdmin tool.
Configuring RDP Session Services
RDP session services can be made available on the network to allow you to connect
remotely to a desktop computer running Microsoft Windows NT®, Windows 2000,
Windows 2003, and Windows XP Professional, or a server running Microsoft® Windows
NT® Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. The Remote Desktop Protocol allows a thin
client to execute Windows applications within a Windows graphical user interface (GUI)
environment, even though they are actually being executed on the server
Use the instructions accompanying these products to install them and make sessions and
applications available to the thin clients sharing the server environment.
Note
If a Windows 2000 or 2003 Server is used, a Terminal Services Client
Access License (TSCAL) server must also reside somewhere on the
network. The server will grant a temporary (90-day) license on an individual
device basis. Beyond the temporary (90-day) license, you must purchase
TSCALs and install them on the TSCAL server (you will not be able to make
a connection without a temporary or permanent license).

Configuring Basic Thin Client
Settings
This chapter contains information on setting up the basic functions for thin client use. It
includes instructions for setting up a new thin client and resetting a thin client to factory
defaults.
Note
The password for the BIOS is Fireport.
Setting Up the Thin Client for the First Time
The first time a new thin client (or a thin client reset to factory-defaults) starts, the thin
client will log on automatically as an administrator (with no password required). You can
use the Setup Wizard to configure the settings necessary for basic operation and access
to the network resources needed for remote administration. For information on the Setup
Wizard, refer to "Using the Setup Wizard."
Note
You must enable security for login requirements to be active, otherwise, the
thin client automatically logs on as an administrator with no password
required. For more information on enabling security, refer to "Configuring
Security and Managing User Accounts."
After basic configurations, you can continue thin client configurations either locally or
remotely:
•
Local Setup - Manually (by you as an administrator) on each thin client. Depending on
the number of thin clients, this method can be time consuming as there are many
configurations available for each individual thin client on the network. For more
information on local configurations, refer to "Using the Desktop and Connection
Manager to Manage Connections" and "Using the Control Panel."
•
Remote Setup - By using Wyse Device Manager software (formally Rapport Remote
Administration Software) or SNMP tools you can configure and manage thin clients
remotely. Typically, a single thin client would be configured locally, and then the remote
software tools would be used to extract the settings into a database for broadcast as
an upgrade to other thin clients on the network. For information on remote
administration and software upgrades, refer to "System Administration." For
information on SNMP, refer to "Managing Networks Using SNMP."
12
Chapter 3
Using the Setup Wizard
The Setup Wizard allows you to quickly configure basic thin client settings (so that the thin
client is configured for network users and available for remote administration). Some
wizard dialog boxes are informational and require no user input, while other dialog boxes
prompt you for required information.
To reset the thin client to factory defaults and then use the Setup Wizard to configure
basic thin client settings, begin at step 1; to use the Setup Wizard to configure basic thin
client settings on a new thin client first boot, begin at step 5:
1. Double-click System in the Control Panel to open the System Info dialog box.
Figure 1
System Info dialog box - General tab
2. On the General tab, select the Reset the terminal to factory-default property
settings check box to open the System Settings Change dialog box.
3. Click Yes to restart the thin client, and continue with the setup process.
Note
The Waiting for Network Services message appears while the thin client is
starting and attempting to establish a network connection. If no network is
connected or no DHCP server is available, the Setup Wizard cannot
automatically configure the network configurations. In this case, you must
manually configure the network and other properties.
4. After the countdown box appears, you can allow the countdown to continue to 0 (in
which case the default settings are automatically selected for the thin client, the Setup
Wizard completes, and the thin client restarts) or you can click Next before the
countdown completes to open the Setup Wizard Desktop Area dialog box and begin
making custom selections.

Managing Connections
This chapter describes important connection features available for you to use. It also
provides instructions on using the administrator Desktop and Connection Manger to
manage (add, edit, and delete) the connections and applications you make available to
users.
Understanding the Connection Features
How a user logs in and what they see after they log in, depends on your configurations.
For example, a username and password may be required to log in to a thin client or the
thin client may automatically log on when started. After logging in, a user may see the
Connection Manager dialog box or the windows desktop (or if configured, an application or
connection may be launched automatically).
This section discusses:
•
"Using Multiple Sessions"
•
"Enabling AutoLogin"
•
"Enabling Single Button Connect for User Login"
•
"Enabling Failover"
•
"Starting Connections Automatically at Startup"
Using Multiple Sessions
The Multiple Sessions feature allows the thin client to have multiple active connections.
The number of active connections you can have depends on the:
•
amount of RAM.
•
types of connections open.
•
number of connections configured.
With the New Desktop (see "Selecting a Thin Client Desktop Option") you can also select
Support launching multiple instances on new Desktop to enable support for opening
multiple instances of one ICA or RDP connection (supported for published applications
configured as a Seamless Windows Connection or PNAgent enabled sessions).
Figure 4
Desktop Configuration
16
Chapter 4
Enabling AutoLogin
The AutoLogin feature is an automatic login function that uses a countdown to login to the
thin client (for example, 5 seconds).
Note
If you also want to automatically make a connection upon log-in, refer to
"Enabling Single Button Connect for User Login."
Figure 5
AutoLogin countdown
To enable the AutoLogin feature, use the administrator Security dialog box as described in
"Configuring Security and Managing User Accounts."
Note
Since AutoLogin is a global function, it does not matter what other functions
are enabled.
Enabling Single Button Connect for User Login
The Single Button Connect feature is an automatic login function that uses the Connect
command button to allow users to login to the thin client (and if configured, automatically
makes a connection upon log-in). To enable Single Button Connect, use the administrator
Security dialog box. as described in "Configuring Security and Managing User Accounts."
Figure 6
Single Button Connect
Single Button Connect:
•
Logs a user into their thin client using the account to which AutoLogin is associated.
•
Connects to the first connection in the Connections Name list of the Connection
Manager (unless another connection in the list has been made with Autostart).
Managing Connections
17
Enabling Failover
The Failover feature is a connection function that causes the thin client to ping the
intended device (to determine whether or not the device is available) before making a
connection to the device.
Note
Failover does not support Serial and PNAgent connections.
Packet Internet Groper (Ping) is a network utility. It tests communication with nodes in a
network by sending packets to each selected node. Ping then waits to receive the echo
response from that selected node. If pinging the intended connection fails, the thin client
pings each successive connection in the list.
For each connection:
•
If a ping is successful, the connection is made.
•
If a ping is not successful, the thin client pings the next connection.
•
A ping does not work on a serial connection. Failover will not continue after
encountering a serial connection, but will launch the serial connection.
•
If failover pings all the connections in the list and a connection is not made, the function
stops and an error message displays.
Note
Failover skips IE connections.
To enable the Failover feature, use the administrator Security dialog box as described in
"Configuring Security and Managing User Accounts."
Note
If the Verbose check box is selected on the Security dialog box, the Failover
Log Window displays when failover is finished. The Failover Log Window is a
list of all the connections that were pinged. The list reports both successful
and unsuccessful pings.
Figure 7
Failover Log Window
Note
Failover is global and wholly automatic to the thin client. It will work
regardless of what connection you are trying to make, or what type of
account under which you are logged in.

Managing Add-ons
Double-clicking the Add-on icon in the administrator Control Panel opens the Add-on
dialog box. Use this dialog box to determine if there is sufficient flash memory to install
Add-ons or remove Add-ons.
Note
The thin client comes from the factory with a number of Add-ons
(applications and peripheral drives) already installed. Add-ons may be
installed and removed as needed. Add-ons are available from Wyse for free
or for a licensing fee. After obtaining an Add-on be sure to store it on an FTP
server that is accessible by the thin client as discussed in "Using FTP File
Servers." For more information on Add-ons, refer to the Add-on
Administrators Guide: Wyse® WintermTM 3 series, Based on Microsoft®
Windows® CE.
Using the Add-on Add/Remove Tab
The Add/Remove tab lists the currently installed Add-ons, and allows you to add or
remove Add-ons. Instructions for installing an Add-on accompanies the individual Add-on
from Wyse. To remove an Add-on, select an Add-on, click Remove, and follow the
instructions in the dialog box.
Note
You can upgrade several Add-ons consecutively from the Upgrade dialog
box without the need to reboot after each Add-on installation. Rebooting is

Managing Certificates
You can manually download new custom digital certificates through FTP into the thin client
using the Wyse Certificates Add-on. Double-clicking the Certificates icon in the
administrator Control Panel opens the Certificates dialog box. Use this dialog box to
import and remove digital certificates, as well as view the details of installed digital
certificates. The Wyse Certificates Add-on supports X.509 certificate structure and
standard ASN.1 encoding.
Note
The digital certificates are installed in the thin client using Microsoft standard
certificate APIs. As the digital certificate is installed, a copy is saved in the
registry, and a copy is saved as a file on Flash to ensure functionality. With
proper registry settings, certificates that reside in Flash can be imported into
the certificate store automatically during boot up. In addition, the digital
certificates can be used through the virtual channels of both ICA and RDP
sessions.
You can obtain digital certificates from a third-party Certificate Authority (CA) or create
your own certificates using Microsoft Certificate Services on your server, and then ready
the certificate for thin client import:
1. Verify which format of the certificate you require:
•
DER encoded binary
•
Base-64 encoded
•
Cryptographic Message Syntax
2. Double-click on the Lock icon (located in the lower right hand corner of the taskbar).
3. Select the Details tab and select Copy to File.
4. Complete the wizard (be sure to select the proper format of the certificate you require).
5. Name the file and save it to your local desktop (the file should have a .cer extension).
6. Place the certificate into the FTP server directly under the root directory.
To import a certificate into the thin client:
1. Log-in to the thin client.
2. Double-click the Certificates icon in the Control Panel to open the Certificates dialog
box.

Configuring DHCP Options
A DHCP connection is a connection that will use most of the DHCP option data obtained
from the DHCP server. A connection can be either ICA, RDP, or terminal emulation. The
option data is the DHCP option IDs populated as discussed in "Using Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP)." This option data are the Common Option IDs, RDP
Option IDs, and Terminal Emulation Option IDs groups which provide information such as
Server address, user login name and password, command line, working directory,
terminal ID, and so on. The local vs. DHCP rule still applies here when a connection is
DHCP enabled. That is, DHCP information for this designated connection will always
override the local settings as discussed in "Configuring Security and Managing User
Accounts."
Double-clicking the DHCP Options icon in the administrator Control Panel opens the
DHCP Options dialog box. Use this dialog box to select the desired DHCP options. To
change an option ID, type over the current number in the ID box you want. Specific
numbers must match those set on the DHCP server.
Note
The values shown in the figure are the thin client default values. For DHCP
option values, descriptions and notes, refer to Table 1, "DHCP Options."
Using the Control Panel
Figure 82
63
DHCP Options
Use the following guidelines:
•
The Common Option IDs area is used to set the DHCP values of the Remote Server,
Logon user Name, Domain, Logon Password, Command Line, and Working Directory.
•
The RDP Option ID area is used to set DHCP option value identifying the RDP startup
published applications.
•
The FTP Option IDs area is used to set the DHCP option values identifying the FTP
location of the firmware upgrade image (for more information on firmware upgrades,
refer to "System Administration").
•
The SNMP Option IDs area is used to set the DHCP option values identifying SNMP
trap servers and set community name. (for more information on SNMP, refer to
"Managing Networks Using SNMP").
•
The Terminal Emulation Option IDs area is used to set DHCP option values identifying
the terminal emulation mode and terminal ID presented to the terminal server when a
terminal emulation connection is established.
•
Select the Send Vendor Class ID check box to enable sending DHCP Vendor Class
Identifier. Enter your Vendor Class Identifier in the VID box. It should be a string with a
maximum length of 50 characters. When Send Vendor Class ID is enabled and a VID
string is specified, the DHCP client will send the VID string in DHCP option 60 in all
DHCP discover and request packets upon subsequent reboots.
•
Select the Interpret Vendor Class Info check box to enable interpreting DHCP Vendor
Class information (once enabled, the DHCP client in the thin client will interpret the
DHCP option values embedded in Option 43 sent by the DHCP server).
•
Clicking Reset to Defaults, resets all supported option IDs to the default values.

Chapter 6
Using Edgeport for Port Expansion
The Wyse Edgeport Add-on is provided with the thin client to provide driver support for
Edgeport USB-to-serial and USB-to-parallel converters. Edgeport USB-to-serial and
USB-to-parallel converters offer an easy Plug and Play solution for COM port expansion.
An alternative to PCI cards, Edgeport connects through USB to a thin client or server,
eliminating the need to open the chassis, reconfigure, and reboot.
Double-clicking the Edgeport icon in the administrator Control Panel opens the Edgeport
dialog box. The Edgeport dialog box lists the additional COM/Parallel ports made
available by the connected Edgeport device. Use this dialog box to make your

Elo Touch
The Wyse ELO Touch Add-on is provided with the thin client to provide driver support for
touch monitors over a Serial interface. When attached, ELO Touch monitors allow thin
client users to make a selection by touching the monitor screen, rather than typing on a
keyboard or pointing with a mouse. After a touch screen is attached through a standard
Serial port, you can configure and calibrate the touch screen by using the ELO Touch icon
in the Control Panel.
Double-clicking the Elo Touch icon in the administrator Control Panel opens the ELO
Touch Screen dialog box. Use this dialog box to select the serial port to which the touch

but in the opposite direction.
ICA Preferences Tab
Use the Preferences tab to configure various ICA preference settings.
Figure 87
Global ICA Settings - Preferences tab
Use the following guidelines:
•
Serial Number - This is the serial number of your ICA Client software. This entry 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 entry is not
used by MetaFrame servers.
•
Default Windows Colors - If the thin client Color Palette (located in the Display dialog
box - opened from the Control Panel) is 256 colors, options for 16 or 256 colors are
displayed. If 65536 is selected for the Color Quality, Thousands and Millions are
displayed after restarting the thin client. The ICA server must be capable of supporting
16-bit color for the Thousands option to work properly or 24-bit color for the Millions
option to work properly. If not, the thin client will display only 256 (8-bit) colors when
Thousands or Millions options are selected. When using a PPTP or PPPoE
connection, 16 color mode may provide faster performance. If the window options
specified exceed the capabilities of the client hardware, the maximum size and color
depth supported by the operating system are used.
•
PNAgent - The PNAgent Enable check box allows you to enable the PNAgent and the
PNAgent Settings command button. The PNAgent Settings command button opens
the PNAgent Configuration dialog box to allow you to enter the Server URL (for more
information on the PNAgent, refer to "Configuring and Using the PNAgent").
Using the Control Panel
67
•
The Force PNAgent on Reboot check box allows you to always enable the PNAgent
on reboot of the thin client.
•
Apply Windows key combinations - Select one of the following options:
•
In full screen desktops only - Selecting this option applies keyboard shortcuts to
the remote desktop rather than the local desktop when the remote session is
running in full screen mode. If the session is running in any other window size
mode, keyboard shortcuts are applied to the local desktop rather than the remote
desktop.
•
On the remote desktop - Selecting this option applies keyboard shortcuts to the
remote session rather than the local desktop. For example, pressing ALT+TAB
switches between all the windows currently open on the remote desktop, excluding
any windows open on the local desktop.
•
On the local desktop - Selecting this option applies keyboard shortcuts to the local
desktop rather than the remote desktop. For example, pressing ALT+TAB switches
between all the windows currently open on the local desktop, including both local
and remote windows.
ICA Server Location Tab
Server location (also called server browsing) provides a method for a user to view a list of
all Citrix servers on the network that have ICA connections configured, and a list of all
published applications. The way in which server location works depends on which network
protocol has been configured.

By default the settings that are enabled for an ICA user are the default settings provided
by Citrix. You can clear the use default check box for an ICA setting you want to modify.
The following set of registry settings can be modified using the ICA Client Performance
Settings dialog box (be sure to clear the check box you want and use the following
guidelines to set the sliders to the values you want):
•
Use Citrix Default Windows Cache Value - The Windows Cache Value setting sets
up the amount of cache taken up by an ICA connection. There is a speed benefit to
larger cache sizes, depending heavily on what application/benchmark you run, but, in
general, diminishing returns apply. This setting is controlled by the Windows Cache
Slider.
•
Use Citrix Default Bitmap Cache Value - The Bitmap Cache Value setting is used to
set the size for Disk Cache. It sets the maximum disk space in bytes allowed or
caching bitmaps. This setting is controlled by the Bitmap Cache Value Slider.
•
Use Citrix Default Overscroll Adjustment Value - There are several situations in
which the thin client can continue scrolling much longer than needed, such as when
the user holds down the mouse button on the Microsoft Excel scroll bar. This
over-scrolling effect can be reduced by setting the Overscroll Adjustment Value to
values higher than 1. Higher settings reduce over scrolling more, but also slow
scrolling in general, which is particularly noticeable in DOS windows. Depending on
hardware speeds and the user requirements, values from 10 to 35 may be suitable.
This setting is controlled by the Overscroll Adjustment Slider.
•
Use Citrix Default Keyboard Delay Adjustment Value - Specifies a time interval, in
milliseconds, during which keyboard input is collected before being sent to the Citrix
server. Using too low a value in a LAN environment may cause a large number of small
packets to be generated, which may affect network performance. This setting is
controlled by the Keyboard Delay Adjustment Slider.
•
Use Citrix Default Mouse Delay Adjustment Value - Specifies a time interval, in
milliseconds, during which mouse input will be collected before being sent to the Citrix
server. This setting is controlled by the Mouse Delay Adjustment Slider.

Note
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is a protocol that supports remote printing in
distributed environments. For example, IPP allows a user to print a document
on a printer at another geographic location by choosing print options from a
Web browser or by specifying an Internet URL. IPP provides users with the
same printing controls and concepts that they use to print locally or to
LAN-attached printers. IPP printing services can show the location of
available printers, or allow users to inquire about printer capabilities and
printer status. You can also choose printers interactively. The protocol
supports installation, configuration, print job submission, and other
management features, with appropriate security.
Use the following guidelines:
•
Enter the of the IP of IPP enabled printer and click Add Port to view the IPP Printer Port
Added message.
•

Configuring the Rapport Agent
Wyse Device Manager (formally known as Rapport) software is a full-featured remote
administration tool set available from Wyse Technology. The software accesses your thin
client through the factory-installed Rapport Agent and Preboot Execution Environment
(PXE) client utilities. For more information on Wyse Device Manager, refer to "Using Wyse
Device Manager Software for Remote Administration and Upgrades."
The Rapport Agent is a Wyse Device Manager component that resides in the thin client
and interfaces with the Wyse Device Manager system to perform specific remote
management tasks such as discovering devices, performing firmware and Add-on
upgrades, and cloning registries from one device to another. For example, the Rapport
Agent for a device periodically checks-in with Wyse Device Manager, and at check-in
time, Wyse Device Manager re-discovers the device and its basic information. If there are
pending updates for the device, Wyse Device Manager distributes the update when the
device checks-in.
Double-clicking the Rapport icon in the administrator Control Panel opens the Rapport
Properties dialog box, Use this dialog box to configure the Rapport Agent residing on the
thin client.

78
Chapter 6
•
Failover Enable - Select to enable the Failover function. Failover allows the thin client
to try the next connection in a list if a current connection attempt (ping) is unsuccessful.
Enabling this function activates the Multiple Connect and Verbose check boxes. By
default this function is disabled. For more information about Failover, refer to "Enabling
Failover."
•
Multiple Connect - Failover must be enabled before you can access this function. If
Multiple Connect is selected, the thin client will attempt a connection to all servers
listed starting from where the first connection is launched.
•
PingBeforeConnect - When selected, the server is pinged before a connection is
attempted to avoid wasting time waiting for failure responses.
•
Verbose - When selected, a Failover Log Window is displayed reporting details about
the connection process.
•
AutoLogin Enable - When selected, enables the automatic login function that uses a
countdown to login to the thin client (see "Enabling AutoLogin"). Selecting AutoLogin
Enable enables Security automatically.

automatic login.
•
Single Button Connect - When selected, enables the automatic login function that
uses the Connect command button to login to the thin client (see "Enabling Single
Button Connect for User Login").
•
DHCP Connection Enable and Connection Name and Type - As discussed earlier, a
DHCP connection is a connection that will use most of the DHCP option data obtained
from the DHCP server. A connection can be either ICA, RDP, or terminal emulation.
The option data is the DHCP option IDs populated as discussed in "Using Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)." This option data are the Common Option IDs,
RDP Option IDs, and Terminal Emulation Option IDs groups which provide information
such as Server address, user login name and password, command line, working
directory, terminal ID, and so on as discussed in "Configuring DHCP Options." The
local vs. DHCP rule still applies here when a connection is DHCP enabled (select
DHCP Connection Enable). That is, DHCP information for this designated connection
(selected from the Connection Name and Type list) will always override the local
settings as described in "Configuring DHCP Options."
When DHCP Connection Enable is disabled (default), the Connection Name and
Type list is inaccessible (grayed out). This means that no connection in the system
exists that uses the DHCP supplied information such as remote server IP address,
remote user login name and password, remote application, working directory, and so
on. Instead, each connection uses whatever static information that has been created
locally on the thin client.
However, when DHCP Connection Enable is enabled, the list shows all connections
on the system that can be selected to use the DHCP supplied information instead of
local static information when making a connection. The list displays the unique
connection name along with its connection type. After a connection is associated, that
connection will use the DHCP information on the next reboot. Note that only one
connection in the system can be selected to use the DHCP information.
•
Auto Fail Recovery - Select to enable an automatic re-connection attempt to this
same connection in the case of a failed connection.
•
Reset Hotkey Enable - Select to allow users to reset the thin client to factory defaults
using the G-Key Reset feature. To reset the thin client to factory default settings,
restart the thin client and continuously tap the G key during the restart process. G-key
reset impacts all configuration items, including but not limited to both network
configuration and connections defined locally on the thin client. Be aware that if you do
not select and enable Reset Hotkey Enable the only method to reset the thin client to
Using the Control Panel

If DHCP upgrading is used, the location of the upgrade images must be entered in the
server DHCP options identified in the DHCP Options dialog box on the thin client (defaults
are 161 and 162, respectively). The FTP server must provide anonymous log-on
capability. For more information on DHCP Options, refer to "Configuring DHCP Options."
For more information on DHCP upgrading, refer to "Configuring the Thin Client for
Automatic DHCP Firmware Upgrades."
If FTP Pull upgrading is used, items must be entered in the Upgrade dialog box on the thin
client, along with the Login name and password (the default name and password are both
anonymous). For more information on FTP Pull upgrading, refer to "Performing FTP Pull
Firmware Upgrades."
Note
To update the Citrix ICA Client and the Microsoft RDP Client installed on the
thin client, you must use the Wyse update procedures and mechanisms.
Caution
Upgrades to newer software versions preserve the thin client settings
through the upgrade process. However, downgrades to older versions of
software boot the thin client to the Setup Wizard, which requires that initial
settings be re-established (for information on the Setup Wizard, refer to
"Using the Setup Wizard").

Chapter 7
Using Wyse Device Manager Software for Remote Administration and
Upgrades
Wyse Device Manager (formally known as Rapport) software is a full-featured remote
administration tool set available from Wyse Technology. The software accesses your thin
client through the factory-installed Rapport Agent and Preboot Execution Environment
(PXE) client utilities. PXE upgrade services and a Virtual Network Computing (VNC)
Viewer are built into Wyse Device Manager software. Wyse Device Manager software
allows the thin client administration functions (including firmware upgrades) to be
performed without requiring an administrator to visit the individual thin client sites. For
information on installing Wyse Device Manager software and configuring the server
environment, refer to the Wyse Device Manager software documentation.
Note
Ordering information for Wyse Device Manager software is available on the
Wyse Web site at: http://www.wyse.com/products/software/rapport/.
Wyse Device Manager software can also be used to do the following operations:
•
Remote Reboot - Wyse thin clients can be rebooted remotely using the Wyse Device
Manager administration software.
•
Wake-On-LAN - Your power-connected thin client can also be turned on by the
Wake-On-LAN feature. Using this feature within a single Ethernet subnet, an
administrator can turn on the thin client connection by using a LAN message that the
thin client recognizes.
Configuring the Thin Client for Automatic DHCP Firmware Upgrades
The software version is embedded in both the RAM and flash memory images. This
version information is used to compare the images on the FTP server to the
currently-loaded flash image on the thin client.
After obtaining software updates from Wyse, you must place the software images on the
FTP Server to allow the thin clients to automatically detect and self-install the new
software (upon thin client system start). The server address and exact path to these files
can be specified in DHCP Options 161 and 162 (if DHCP is not used, the path can be
specified in the Upgrade dialog box).
Each time a thin client boots, it checks the software images on the FTP file server, and if
configured, automatically performs an update if a newer version is detected. The build
number determines whether or not the update is different than the version currently
installed on the thin client.
Note
The upgrade image and params.ini files must be available on the FTP file
server for an upgrade to be performed.
Caution
Interrupting power during the update process can corrupt the FLASH on the
thin client. Thin clients with corrupted FLASH must be shipped to Wyse for
service.
System Administration

8. Select Allow Automatic Upgrade and select the Use FTP Information from DHCP
Server option.
9. Close the Upgrade dialog box and the Control Panel, and then restart the thin client.
The thin client will automatically upgrade the firmware during restart.
Performing FTP Pull Firmware Upgrades
FTP pull is an upgrade initiated from the thin client by the user. The location of the
upgrade image on an FTP file server is entered locally at the thin client or obtained from
the DHCP server. The thin client upgrades to this image as long as the image is
compatible with the thin client.
Note
Params.ini, Bootstrap212.exe, and the Bin file along with the upgrade image
must be present on your FTP server to upgrade the thin client.
Note
If the location of the upgrade image is supplied by the DHCP server, the thin
client must be configured to use DHCP before performing an FTP Pull
Upgrade. DHCP can be set up through the Network Adapters Configuration
dialog box (for more information on setting up DHCP, refer to "Configuring
the Thin Client for Automatic DHCP Firmware Upgrades."
Caution
Interrupting power during the update process can corrupt the FLASH on the
thin client. Thin clients with corrupted FLASH must be shipped to Wyse for
service.
System Administration
95
To perform an FTP pull upgrade:
1. Obtain the firmware or Add-on binary image (.bin) and associated parameters
initialization file (params.ini) from Wyse and place them in a directory under your FTP
home directory on a FTP server to which you have anonymous access permission
enabled.
2. Log on to the thin client as administrator (this is done by default if no security has been
set up), open the Upgrade dialog box by double-clicking on the Upgrade icon in the
administrator Control Panel, and then click the Local tab.
Figure 127
Upgrade - Local tab
3. Complete one of the following:
•
If the DHCP server is to supply the location of the upgrade file, select the Use FTP
Information From DHCP Server option.
•
If the DHCP server is not supplying the location of the upgrade file, select the Use
Local FTP Information option, enter the location of the upgrade files in Server
Name (IP address or valid DNS name of the FTP file server) and Server Directory
(FTP path to the upgrade files). Then enter the required FTP server login
information in User ID (anonymous by default) and Password (anonymous by
default).
4. Depending on whether or not you want to save the password information, select or
clear Save Password.
5. Click Upgrade to start the transfer of the firmware or Add-on files to the thin client.
Informative messages are displayed in the Status box during the transfer. When the
process completes, a message appears prompting you to restart the thin client (you
can also continue to add other Add-ons before you restart the thin client).
