Configuring Thin Client Settings
You can configure available thin client settings on the thin client using the following. Depending on user
privilege level, some dialog boxes and options may not be available for use.
•Local Settings Menu
While it is not recommended to use dialog boxes for configuring thin client settings, they are
available in case you want to temporarily override central default configurations or you do not have
the option to set up central configuration (smaller environments). In general, it is recommended
that you use central configuration to enable you to automatically push updates and any desired
default configuration to all supported thin clients in your environment, see Central Configuration:
Automating Updates and Configurations.
