subnet, messages sent to that address must be sent through the Default Gateway, whether
specified through local configuration or through DHCP. The network administrator must
provide this value.
–Default Gateway — Use of gateways is optional. Gateways are used to interconnect
multiple networks (routing or delivering IP packets between them). The default gateway is
used for accessing the internet or an intranet with multiple subnets. If no gateway is
specified, the thin client can only address other systems on the same subnet. Enter the
address of the router that connects the thin client to the internet. The address must exist
on the same subnet as the thin client as defined by the IP address and the subnet mask. If
DHCP is used, the address can be supplied through DHCP.
c. Select the IPV6 check box, and then click Advanced to select various IPV6 supported setting
options from the available check boxes.
d. Click properties and use the following guidelines:
•Wait DHCP — Selecting this option enables your thin client to wait for IPV6 DHCP before the
sign-in, if not selected the system will only wait for IPV4 DHCP if enabled.
•Dynamically allocated over DHCP/BOOTP — Selecting this option enables your thin client to
automatically receive information from the DHCP server. The network administrator must
configure the DHCP server (using DHCP options) to provide information. Any value provided
by the DHCP server replaces any value entered locally on the Options tab, however, locally
entered values are used if the DHCP server fails to provide replacement values.
•Statically specified IP Address — Select this option to manually enter the IP Address, Subnet
Mask and Default Gateway.
–IP Address — Must be a valid network address in the server environment. The network
administrator must provide this information.
–Subnet Mask — Enter the value of the subnet mask. For more information, see various
options supported by IPV4 in this section.
–Default Gateway — Use of gateways is optional. For more information, see various options
supported by IPV4 in this section.
•DNS Servers — Use of DNS is optional. DNS allows you to specify remote systems by their
host names rather than IP addresses. If a specific IP address (instead of a name) is entered for
a connection, it rather than DNS is used to make the connection. Enter the network address
of an available DNS Server. The value for this box may be supplied by a DHCP server. If the
DHCP server supplies this value, it replaces any locally configured value. If the DHCP server
does not supply this value, the locally configured value is used.
e. Select the check box to enable IEEE802.1x Authentication.
•EAP Type — If you have enabled the Enable IEEEE 802.1x authentication check box, select
the EAP Type option you want (TLS, LEAP or PEAP).
•TLS — If you select the TLS option, click Properties to open and configure the Authentication
Properties dialog box.
– Select the Validate Server Certificate check box because it is mandatory to validate your
The CA certificate must be installed on the thin client. Also note that the server
certificate text field supports a maximum of approximately 127 characters, and
supports multiple server names.
