6Chapter 2
The following topics in this section provide important overview information on the
supported service situations you may have when configuring the network services for your
Wyse ThinOS environment (after becoming familiar with your environment requirements,
refer to "Configuring Network Services" for detailed instructions):
"DHCP and FTP Servers Available"
"FTP Server Available (DHCP Server Unavailable)"
"DHCP and Virtual Desktop Servers Available"
"Virtual Desktop Server Available (DHCP Server Unavailable)"
"FTP and Virtual Desktop Servers Unavailable (Stand-alone User or PNAgent/
PNLite-only User)"
If a thin client accesses the enterprise intranet through Dial-up, PPPoE, or
PPTP VPN and the thin client is locked-down, a non-privileged or
low-privileged user attempting to reboot to Stand-alone user mode will
disable the Network Setup dialog box and system reset capabilities. The
user will not be able to re-access the enterprise intranet through this path. If
this happens, the thin client must be moved to a location where it can access
the enterprise intranet directly (Ethernet cable) and reboot so that you as an
administrator can make any required changes to the thin client operating
configurations through the user profiles (for example, set the user profile to
unlock the thin client).
If the thin client is configured for Dial-up access, there must be an RAS
server answering the configured telephone number. Otherwise, the thin client
will require factory attention to recover it.
DHCP and FTP Servers Available
As a network administrator in an environment where DHCP and FTP servers are
available, you can set up both DHCP and FTP network services and create “global” and
“user” INI files as described in the Reference Guide: Wyse ThinOSTM INI Files.
A thin client is initially (new-thin client or reset thin client to default
configurations) configured to obtain its IP address and the location of the
FTP server from a DHCP server. DHCP can only be used for the Ethernet
Direct access and Wireless Direct access configurations.
A wnos.ini file contains the “global” parameters you want that will affect all
thin clients accessing the file server. A {username}.ini file contains the
user-specific or “user profile” parameters you want that will comprise the
connection profile for an individual user. For information on constructing
these INI files, refer to the Reference Guide: Wyse ThinOSTM INI Files.
If Wireless Direct access is used, the Wireless Setup dialog box must also be configured
locally (see the Users Guide: Wyse ThinOSTM for wireless configuration instructions).
After DHCP and FTP servers are configured and available, simply connect the thin client
to the network (either directly through a network cable or through a wireless network
device), turn it on, and begin using the thin client. A sign-on name and password may be
required for access to the session services. If applications (published by Citrix PNAgent/
PNLite services) are available, a Domain name must be entered or selected from the list.
Connections or applications may start automatically if they are configured to automatically
start in the INI files.
