Hi All,

Im having trouble looking for a PCI card that is essentially a Citrix/WInterm BIOS card that sits in a PC and boots up from this card when you power on. You dont need any other hardware in the PC apart from CPU, and Memory, even the card had a VGA connection built onto it.

In the cards BIOS settings you can either connect via a modem or the LAN and so can enter various settings to do so ie number to dial, modem on which com port, IP Address to connect to etc.

We have some really old versions of these cards (ISA) but now i need some PCI ones. Ive tried calling the company we bought them from (in 1999!) but they seemed to have gone out of business.

Ive searched the net with every detail on the old cards i have but im having no joy im afraid.

Does anyone know of these types of card and where i can get them from!

Thanks!

You might be able to get them from Neoware.  They have a way to convert an existing PC into a thin client, so they might have just what you need.

You could probably pick up a bunch of thin terminals on ebay for the cost though...

ive checked out the neoware site but cant seem to find the PCI card im looking for.

Ebay may be worth looking at also? Never thought of that.

I think im not going to find these cards, i know its about 7 years old and the technology has been replaced by the thin client PC as such so im not sure theres a need for such equipment anymore.

But thanks for the help guys! ill split the points.

Regards,
