Terminal Server Remote App, Wireless Access point issue
Posted on 2014-02-17
We are having an issue with our Terminal Server Remote Application that is used on Mobile Med Carts. These med carts have wireless that connect to WAP's throughout the building. We are noticing an issue with the med carts and the remote app, when the med cart switches between WAP's the remote app will freeze and sometimes close down completely. not all waps are separate(not managed by a central device), so the med carts don't switch between waps like a managed wifi would provide.
Is there anything that we could do to help the freezing issue we are experiencing. Note 3/4 of the wap's are not N capable, two of them were replaced with N capable waps.
Would getting a managed wireless setup fix our issue? Is there anything on the med cart thin client that could be changed to make the switching between wap's faster? To note we have the med carts all set with Static IP's to try and help speed up the wap to wap connection so it isn't having to try and check for dhcp and pull a new ip each time.
Also to help with the Terminal Server App from ending the session we have changed the end session from one minute to five minutes.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
