Wyse S50 - how do I see / change linux config?

Wyse S50 Linux V6 Bios 1.15 - Won't connect

I have a bunch of Wyse S50 I inherited with no specs or setup docs.  Today they stopped working.  They just loop every 1 second trying to connect to a terminal server.

I can get in the bios, but I can't see how to get in and configure anything about where they are connecting.

The start menu only has connection manager and system information.

Anyone Know how I get in and see how these things are configured?

They are on a shop floor and I need to get running asap!

Are they running an "official" linux supplied by Wyse, or something that the last IT person loaded onto them, or is it unknown?

Looks official - I did find FTP settings in the DHCP server - so I found it was hitting a local FTP site with a wyse directory.  I'm just looking / playing with the .ini file now to change the server it tried to log in to.

Then you should be able to SSH into the system ... if you can guess a username and password.  If not, you would need to attach to the internal JTAG / serial header and break into the boot to obtain superuser privileges.
