Wyse winterminals in TS 2008

Hi all

My client has got a mixture of windows pc and older S10 and 1200LE Wyse terminals, mainly the latter two

I have installed a new TS server as part of the upgrade process and I have reached the point where I am ready for the clients to connect

The client currently runs a Citrix Metaframe XP environment on Win2k servers.

When I try to connect through the pc's all is ok. When I try through the Wyse terminals the screen flickers and returns to the connection console.

Is there anything I can do to set up a normal rdp connection on the Wyse terminals in order to get them to connect as expected?

Thanks

Dom

Hi oztrodamus,

Yeah I figured I might, but I was just wondering if there was a workaround.  I am not sure the client has got a support contract with Wyse and whether we'd be able to get the firmware we need

I'll update you if I get anything working!

Thanks

Dom- is IE installed on the thin clients?  If so have them connect via the WI.

Hi dnsguru44

No all I get is the green console with "connection manager" on it

Looks like and old windows 3.1 screen!

There is no RDP client installed?  Since it's the WYSE OS it looks a little different.

hi,

erm.  I'm not sure as i'm not on site

all i can remember is that it hasa green desktop with the ability to create new connections for either ICA or RDP

Can I install a different RDP client?  If so how?  

I am pretty new to the Wyse clients to be honest, though I do like them :-)

Thanks

Unfortunately no, you can't install a different RDP client as it's WYSE's ThinOS which is proprietary.  These workstations are meant to be used with XenDesktop or View from VMware.

I have configured these thin clients in the past and it does work, you have to manually configure the PNagent server in the ICA client.  Make sure you select TCP/IP and HTTP not HTTPS.

The RDP client is upgraded with the firmware upgrade.

Ah ok, makes sense!

I'll update the question on Friday

Hi dnsguru44 / oztradamus

I managed to get into the clients a day early and made a few registry changes to the Terminal Server, namely the ones found here:

http://www.sepago.de/helge/2007/09/12/programmatically-determining-terminal-server-mode-on-windows-server-2008/

I tried to connect to the server using the Wyse terminals and it all worked a treat.

Thanks again for all your help on this.

I take it your terminal server was requiring network level authentication?

Hi oztradamus,

When I installed the TS role I selected the second option allowing for older clients to connect but with no luck.

Whether there was something else I was required to do in order to stop NLA being required I wasn't aware of it, however this seems to have allowed the older clients through now

Thanks
