Connection to Citrix without client and in MSDOS
Posted on 2003-11-19
We currently have a Citrix environment setup with users connecting via PNagent and NFuse. We have a rake of Pentium 200 base units that we would like to use to connect to Citrix but would like to speed up the connection by removing the need for using Windows OS and then using ICA client software.
I have built a dos bootable disk which loads a packet driver for the network card and then connects to Citrix server via a demo version of DOSRDPXP. The system works fine. I am now looking to remove the need for DOSRDPXP.
Searching the net for some hints on how I can do this, I can see many sites offering a solution that will perform the above and GET a bootimage from a TFTP server running on the Citrix server. These use Linux, I need to perform the same but using DOS. Can anyone tell me first if this is possible and if so, what do I need please?
The end result of this little project is to get the PCs to boot up via the NIC and perform the above.
Any help will be gratefully appreciated.
