12 Introduction

Before working on ThinOS This section contains information about firmware upgrade and system configuration that you need to know before using ThinOS version 8.6.

Firmware upgrade and package deployment Consider the following before you upgrade the ThinOS firmware and deploy the ThinOS packages:

On Wyse 5070 Extended thin client, the AMD firmware is upgraded to a newer version. If you want to downgrade ThinOS from 8.6 to 8.5.1, you must shut down and boot the thin client again. If you do not shut down and reboot, a black screen is displayed on the monitor that is connected to the AMD GPU port. Also, the AMD DP port sequence is updated.

On Wyse 5070 thin clients, the Bluetooth firmware is upgraded to a newer version from ThinOS 8.5_108. If you want to update the thin client with the Bluetooth module from ThinOS version 8.5_107 to 8.5_108 or later, Dell recommends that you disconnect the power cable and connect the power cable again before you reboot.

In ThinOS 8.6, the installed RTME, Horizon, and JVDI packages are saved to the hidden partition. When you downgrade ThinOS firmware to previous versions, and upgrade the firmware to 8.6 again, the ThinOS device reinstalls the saved packages from the hidden partition. You can delete the package to clean the backup data from the device.

From ThinOS version 8.6, the Merlin images include both RTME and Horizon packages. If you push Merlin images on Wyse 5010, 5040, and 7010 thin clients with 4 GB or higher flash size, the RTME and Horizon

packages are formatted.

To upgrade the ThinOS firmware, use any of the following: HTTPS Windows server Dell Wyse Management Suite

NOTE: To avoid uncertain issues, ensure that when you upgrade your firmware, you do not skip versions. To downgrade the

ThinOS firmware, ensure that you set the INI parameter Autoload=2, and follow the procedure using the HTTPS server.

When the packages fail to update, or cannot function after update with new version firmware, or if there is further

failure, the workaround is to remove all packages and reinstall the packages upon reboot.

For information about the ThinOS build number, and package versions, see the latest Dell Wyse ThinOS Release Notes.

Firmware upgrade using HTTPS

Ensure that you have set up a Windows PC or Server with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and HTTPS services installed. If you do not have the HTTPS server installed, then refer to the article about how to setup an HTTPS server at support.microsoft.com.

Ensure that the web server can identify the file types used by ThinOS. Create two MIME types under IIS. The MIME's option needs to be configured on a per site basis. On a default IIS, install:

1. Launch the IIS admin console. 2. Browse to the default website, right-click and select Properties. 3. Click the HTTP Headers tab, and in the MIME Map section, select File types > New Type. 4. Add the two MIME types. Use .INI and . for the associated extension fields.

5. Apply the settings and close the IIS admin console.

Installing IIS creates the default directory C:\inetpub\WWWroot, which is known as the WWW root. In the WWWroot directory, create a folder WYSE and a sub folder wnos. The directory structure must read as C: \inetpub\wwwroot\WYSE\wnos.

To upgrade the ThinOS firmware using HTTPS server:

1. Go to www.dell.com/support.

2. Download the latest ThinOS firmware and latest ThinOS packages that corresponds to your thin client model. If the firmware and packages are in the form of a compressed self-extracting (.EXE) or zipped file (.ZIP), then extract the files. When you download the JVDI.zip package, the README WITH EULA.txt and JVDI.i386.pkg files are unzipped. Ensure that you open the readme file and read the EULA agreement.

3. Place the extracted firmware files in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\WYSE\wnos folder, and the packages to C: \inetpub\wwwroot\WYSE\wnos\pkg on your HTTPS server.

4. Create a wnos.ini text file (using a text editor) in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\WYSE\wnos folder with the following INI parameters:

Autoload=2 loadpkg=1 Addpkg=horizon,JVDI NOTE: JVDI package is introduced from ThinOS version 8.6 to support Cisco Jabber. However, if you intend to use only

horizon package, then do not load the JVDI package to avoid unknown user trap issue.

The option Autoload=2, ensures that the thin client uses the firmware installed on the server to upgrade, only if the firmware on the thin client is older than the version on the server. The option LoadPkg specifies how to update the external packages. If LoadPkg is not in the statement, it will inherit the value of AutoLoad.

Base package and the PCoIP package are integrated into the ThinOS firmware image. Installing the latest ThinOS firmware image automatically installs the latest version of these packages on the ThinOS client. If you set AutoLoad=1 LoadPkg=0, the firmware is checked, but the packages are not checked. The packages check is performed after firmware check. From ThinOS 8.3, the external packages update mechanism is changed. Some packages are default, and loaded according to value of LoadPkg. For example RTME. Some packages need additional parameter AddPkg to add. For example, Horizon and

14 Before working on ThinOS

JVDI. The option AddPkg is for adding packages. It depends on the value of LoadPkg. For more information about the INI parameter usage, see Dell Wyse ThinOS INI Reference Guide.

5. Save the wnos.ini file.

6. On the ThinOS client desktop, navigate to System Setup > Central Configuration > General.

7. In the General tab, enter the IP address of the file server or directory. For example: https://IPaddress/wyse.

NOTE: You can also use DHCP option tags 161 and 162 to configure the ThinOS client, file server and path information.

You must create these options on your DHCP server, configure them with the correct server information, and enable the

DHCP server scope in your environment.

8. Click OK.

9. Restart the thin client and wait until the auto-installation of packages is complete.

Firmware upgrade using Wyse Management Suite

Ensure that you have created a custom group and assigned the ThinOS devices to that group in Wyse Management Suitesee Dell Wyse Management Suite Administrator's Guide.

Ensure that your ThinOS clients are registered to Wyse Management Suite.

To upgrade the ThinOS firmware using Wyse Management Suite:

1. Go to www.dell.com/support.

2. Download the latest ThinOS firmware and ThinOS packages that corresponds to your thin client model. When you download the JVDI.zip package, the README WITH EULA.txt and JVDI.i386.pkg files are unzipped. Ensure that you open the readme file and read the EULA agreement.

NOTE: JVDI package is introduced from ThinOS version 8.6 to support Cisco Jabber. However, if you intend to use only

horizon package, then do not load the JVDI package to avoid unknown user trap issue.

3. Log in to Wyse Management Suite using valid credentials.

System configuration and deployment USB redirection must be disabled for audio and video devices to use RTME, RTAV, SFB, and JVDI. By default, the USB

redirection is disabled on ThinOS. Dell recommends that you do not modify the default settings unless you need the USB redirection for audio and video devices.

ThinOS BIOS policy can be configured using Wyse Management Suite Console, Wyse Management Suite group INI, and Wyse Management Suite advanced settings. Dell recommends that you use any one of the methods to configure the BIOS policy. Setting the BIOS policy simultaneously using different methods may cause a policy mismatch, and the device reboots repeatedly. This reboot loop issue is observed when you select the reboot immediately option in the BIOS policy settings section on the Wyse Management Suite console.

All the installed packages are deleted when you update the ThinOS image version between major releases using WDM or Wyse Management Suite.

Solution for updating firmware using WDMEnsure that you have set the PKG install parameters in the WNOS.ini, and the pkg files are uploaded in the directory. After the device reboot, the packages are re-installed automatically.

Solution for updating firmware using Wyse Management SuiteWyse Management Suite App policy works only once after the policy is created. The deleted package cannot be reinstalled using the same policy. Dell recommends that you create a new App policy to install the package after the firmware update is complete.

WDM vulnerability is fixed in this release. You must configure either the DHCP or the DNS option/record of the WDM server fingerprint to automatically fetch and validate the fingerprint before checking in to the WDM server. However, there is no impact to the ThinOS device functionality if you do not to configure the fingerprint validation environment. For more information about how to set up fingerprint using WDM, see How to set up WDM fingerprint using Wyse Device Manager.

Before working on ThinOS 19

How to set up fingerprint using Wyse Device Manager

To set up your fingerprint using WDM, do the following:

1. Export the WDM server certificate from the WDM server that you want to access.

2. Extract the fingerprint value from the WDM certificate in the required format.

You must use a system with OpenSSL installed. OpenSSL can be used to extract the fingerprint in required format from the WDM certificate itself.

The fingerprint is generated from the following command:

openssl x509 -in .crt -pubkey -noout | openssl pkey -pubin -outform der | openssl dgst -sha256 -binary | openssl enc -base64

NOTE: If cert.crt is in DER format instead of the PEM format, you must add -inform to the first command. The

certificate supports SHA256 in base64 encoded format.

3. Configure either the DHCP option or the DNS TXT record.

If you want to use the DHCP option, configure the following option tags defined in the DHCP server: Option ID200 NameWDM_Fingerprint TypeString

If you want to use the DNS TXT record, enter the name as WDM_Fingerprint, and provide the fingerprint string value.

NOTE: If the DNS TXT record for fingerprint cannot be retrieved, the device fetches the values from the DHCP scope

option. If the fingerprint certificate is already available, the device checks in to the WDM server. If the connection fails, the

failure logs are registered on the ThinOS client.

Automating updates and settings using central configuration

ThinOS is centrally managed and configured using INI files to automatically push updates and any desired default configuration to thin clients in your environment. This section describes how to set up your environment to provide your thin clients running ThinOS with automatic updates and configurations in three simple steps. If no INI files are detected, you can use local dialog boxes on each thin client to configure the settings. Many of these locally configured settings such as resolution, mouse, and keyboard are saved on ThinOS to persist after reboot. However, once INI files are detected, rebooting the client causes ThinOS to become stateless, and ignores the locally configured settings after a reboot. The settings contained in the INI file are used.

NOTE: Dell Wyse thin clients do not require device management software. They are configured to obtain their IP address,

as well as the location of firmware and configuration instructions, from a DHCP server. However, you can use Wyse

Device Manager (WDM) or Wyse Management Suite for a more hands-on management of your thin clients. For information

about configuring your thin clients to communicate with a WDM server or Wyse Management Suite, see the related INI

parameters in Dell Wyse ThinOS INI Guide.

How to set up automatic updates and configurations

For a thin client running ThinOS to successfully access INI files and update itself from a server, you must set up the server with the correct folder structure where the INI files and other update files are located, direct the thin client to the server, and then reboot or start the thin client

Once DHCP and servers are configured and available, the thin client checks (at each boot up) to see whether or not any updates are available on a predefined server DHCP Option #161 specifies the server URL, DHCP Option #162 specifies the root path to the server. If updates are available, the updates are automatically installed.

Using DHCP options

This table contains the DHCP options available for use.

Table 4. DHCP options

Option Description Notes

1 Subnet Mask Required. However, it is not required unless the thin client must interact with servers on a different subnet. MS DHCP requires a subnet mask and is always send one.

2 Time Offset Optional.

3 Router Optional, but recommended. It is not required unless the thin client must interact with servers on a different subnet.

6 Domain Name Server (DNS) Optional, but recommended.

15 Domain Name Optional, but recommended. See Option 6.

28 Broadcast Address Optional.

44 WINS servers IP Address Optional.

51 Lease Time Optional, but recommended.

52 Option Overload Optional.

53 DHCP Message Type Recommended.

54 DHCP Server IP Address Recommended.

55 Parameter Request List Sent by thin client.

57 Maximum DHCP

Message Size

Optional (always sent by thin client).

58 T1 (renew) Time Optional, but recommended.

59 T2 (rebind) Time Optional, but recommended.

61 Client identifier Always sent.

161 File server (https) Optional string. Can be either the name or the IP address of the file server. If a name is given, the name must be resolvable by the DNS servers specified in Option 6. If the option provided by the server is blank or the server provides no value for the field, the machine on which the DHCP server resides is assumed to also be the file server.

162 Root path to the file server (https) Optional string. If the option provided by the server is blank and the server provides no value for the field, a null string is used.

\wyse\wnos is automatically appended to the search path. For example, if you enter pub\serversoftware, the path searchedare pub\serversoftware\wyse\wnos.

Before working on ThinOS 21

Table 4. DHCP options (continued)

Option Description Notes

NOTE: You can have the \wyse automatic component of the search path omitted by appending a dollar sign ($) to the entered path. For example, if you enter pub\serversoftware$,

the path searched will be pub\serversoftware\wnos.

NOTE: The usage or omission of a leading slash (\) on the path is critical on some servers. Some servers limit access to the root path of the user specified at login. For those servers, the usage of the leading slash is optional. Some *NIX servers can be configured to allow the file user access to the entire file system. For those servers, specifying a leading slash specifies that access is to start at the root file system. Proper matching of the file specification to the file server in use is critical to ensuring proper operation. A secured Windows server requires the slash to be specified in order to complete proper access.

165 WMS Server Optional string. Specifies the IP address of the Wyse Management Suite Server.

166 WMS MQTT Server Optional string. Specifies the IP address of the MQTT Server.

167 WMS CA Validation Optional string.

181 PNAgent/ PNLite server list Optional string. The thin client uses the server to authenticate the Windows credentials of the user and to obtain a list of ICA published applications valid for the validated credentials. The user supplies those credentials when logging in to the thin client.

182 NT domain list for PNAgent/ PNLite Optional string. The thin client creates a pull-down list of domains from the information supplied in option 182. This list is presented at thin client login in the order specified in the DHCP option (for example, the first domain specified becomes the default). The selected domain is the one which must authenticate the user ID and password. Only the selected domain is used in the authentication process. If the domain list is incomplete and the user credentials must be verified against a domain not in the list, assuming that the server in option 181 is capable of authenticating

22 Before working on ThinOS

Table 4. DHCP options (continued)

Option Description Notes

against a domain not in the list, the user has the option of not using any of the domains specified in option 182 and typing a different domain name at the time of login.

184 File server Username Optional string. Username to use when authenticating to the server specified in Option 161.

185 File server Password Optional string. Password to use when authenticating to the server specified in Option 161.

186 WDM server list Optional binary IP addresses of WDM. This option can specify up to two WDM servers. If two are specified, at boot time the thin client attempts to check-in to the first server. If it cannot contact the first server, it tries to check-in to the second server.

187 WDM server port Optional number. Byte, word, or two- bytes array.

NOTE: The value of this option tag, when not embedded in Vendor Class Specific Information option, is interpreted in reverse order when it is sent as 2-bytes example, the value of 0x0050 was interpreted as 0x5000. This option tag was used by old ThinOS releases. New ThinOS releases still accept this option tag for backward compatibility.

188 Virtual Desktop Broker server Optional string.

190 WDM secure port Optional number, word or two-bytes array. Specifies to use HTTPS to communicate with WDM instead of HTTP.

192 WDM server port Optional number, word or two-bytes array.

NOTE: The value of this option tag represents the same information as option tag 187. The difference is that ThinOS interprets the value of this option tag in correct order (for example, the value of 0x0050 is interpreted as0x0050). If the DHCP server provides both option tag 192 and 187, option tag 192 takes precedence.

194 WDM FQDN Optional Fully Qualified Domain Name for the WDM.

Before working on ThinOS 23

Table 4. DHCP options (continued)

Option Description Notes

199 Wyse Management Suite Group Key Optional string. Can provide a Wyse Management Suite Group Registration Key for the Wyse Management Suite agent. When Wyse Management Suite is disabled and the Group Key of Wyse Management Suite is null, this option takes effect. Wyse Management Suite uses the optional string as the Group Registration Key. If the Wyse Management Suite server or MQTT server is null, the Wyse Management Suite agent sets the values to the default server values.

24 Before working on ThinOS

Getting started This chapter helps you quickly learn the basics and get started with your thin client.

End User License Agreement End User License Agreement is added to ThinOS from this release. End User License Agreements must be read and accepted to continue using ThinOS. The End User License Agreement screen is displayed during the following instances: When you boot the thin client for the first time. When you reset a thin client that runs ThinOS version 8.5 or later, to factory settings.

NOTE: If the thin client is managed using Wyse Management Suite server, the End User License Agreement screen is not

displayed.

Configuring ThinOS using the First Boot Wizard The First Boot Wizard runs the first time you start a new thin client with ThinOS. The thin client starts the First Boot Wizard application before you enter the ThinOS system desktop, and allows you to perform a set of tasks, such as, configuring system preferences, setting up the internet connectivity, loading USB configurations, configuring management software, and configuring broker connections.

If you are an existing thin client user, and you have upgraded to the ThinOS version 8.5 or later, then you can reset your thin client to factory default settings to enter the First Boot Wizard.

To configure the First Boot Wizard:

1. Connect a new thin client or existing thin client to the Ethernet using a wired connection. The existing thin client must be reset to factory default settings to enter the First Boot Wizard.

2. Turn on your thin client. The thin client checks for a wired network connection. If the network connection is successful, a welcome screen with the model name of your thin client and the End User License Agreement screen is displayed. For more information, see End User License Agreement.

3. Select Dell EULA and Cisco EULA from the right pane to read both the End User License Agreements.

NOTE: Cisco End user Agreement is displayed only if you have the JVDI package installed.

4. Accept each End User License Agreement by clicking I Accept .

The thin client validates the IP address from DHCP. If the DHCP contains the file server or the Wyse Device Manager or Wyse Management Suite configurations, then the ThinOS system desktop is loaded without entering the First Boot Wizard. If the DHCP validation fails or if you have not connected to Ethernet, then follow the next step.

26 Getting started

NOTE: To exit the First Boot Wizard during the network connection status check on the welcome screen, press the Ctrl

+ Esc key.

5. On the Would you like to load a ThinOS configuration file from USB? screen, do either of the following:

To load a ThinOS configuration file from the USB drive, ensure that you create a wnos.ini file and add the file to the /wnos directory on the USB drive. Using this option, you can load packages, and wallpapers that are specified in the INI file. Plug in the USB drive to thin client, and click Yes.

NOTE: Only FAT, FAT32, and ExFAT file systems on the USB disk are supported. NTFS file system is not supported.

The thin client validates the configuration file in the USB drive.

Before use, you may need to install the driver for the printer by following the printer driver installation instructions. For information on connecting to printers, see Configuring the printer setup.

Connecting to a monitor Depending on your thin client model, connections to monitors can be made using either a VGA (analog) monitor port, a DVI (digital) monitor port, or a DisplayPort (digital) and the proper Dell monitor cables/splitters/adapters.

NOTE:

For dual-monitor supported thin clients when using a DVI to DVI/VGA splitter, ensure that the DVI monitor will be

the primary monitor; when using a DisplayPort, ensure that the DisplayPort monitor will be the primary monitor.

Locking the thin client To help ensure that no one else can access your private information without permission, ThinOS allows you to lock your thin client so that credentials are required to unlock and use the thin client after you do one of the following:

Unplug a signed-on smart card If an administrator has set SCRemovalBehavior=1for the signing parameter in the INI files and you unplug the smart card that you used to sign on to the thin client, then the thin client will lock. To unlock the thin client for use, you must use the same smart card and your correct PIN. Note that removing a signed-on smart card can also cause the thin client to log-off, if an administrator has set the INI files to do so in this case you must sign-on as usual to use the thin client.

Use Lock Terminal from the Shortcut Menu and Shutdown dialog box On the Classic Desktop, right-click on the desktop and select Lock Terminal, or use the Shutdown dialog box. On the Zero Desktop, use the Shutdown dialog box. To use the thin client, you must use your correct password.

Figure 6. General settings with ENET0, ENET1, and WLAN

ThinOS supports the following network combinations on the Wyse 5470 Thin Client: Onboard Ethernet port + Ethernet port on the docking station Onboard Ethernet port + Wireless Ethernet port on the docking station + Wireless

NOTE: You do not need to reboot the system when you connect or disconnect the Dell WD 19 docking station

for the network to work.

You can connect your thin client to two wired network connections at the same time. The default gateway is determined by the user interface settings. However, user interface is not changed automatically.

Onboard Ethernet port + Ethernet port on the docking station + WirelessYou can use the combination of these three network interfaces together. However, the following are the known issues while using this combination: You can connect to the network using any two network interfaces and select the network interface that is

not connected as default. The network can be used in this scenario, but the preferred network type cannot be determined.

For example, you can connect to the network using the two Ethernet ports and select the WLAN option on the user interface as default without connecting to a wireless network. The network can be used in this scenario, but the preferred network type cannot be determined.

You can connect to the network using all three available network interfaces together. The preferred network type cannot be determined in this scenario.

b. Use Static Name ServersBy default, this check box is not selected, and thin client fetches the server IP address from DHCP. Select this check box to manually assign static IP addresses.

If name servers are changed using GUI, INI or link down/up, then the details are displayed in Event Logs.

In dynamic mode, the DNS/WINS can be merged from Ethernet 0 and Ethernet 1, if network is not working.

46 Configuring connectivity

i. Enter the URL address of the DNS Domain in the DNS Domain box. ii. Enter the IP address of the DNS Server in the DNS Server box.

Use of DNS is optional. DNS allows you to specify remote systems by their host names rather than IP addresses. If a specific IP address (instead of a name) is entered for a connection, it is used to make the connection. Enter the DNS Domain and the network address of an available DNS Server. The function of the DNS Domain entry is to provide a default suffix to be used in name resolution. The values for these two boxes may be supplied by a DHCP server. If the DHCP server supplies these values, they replace any locally configured values. If the DHCP server does not supply these values, the locally configured values will be used.

NOTE: You can enter up to 16 DNS Server addresses, separated by a semicolon, comma, or space. The first

address is for the primary DNS server and the rest are secondary DNS servers or backup DNS servers.

iii. Enter the IP address of the WINS Server in the WINS Server box.

Use of WINS is optional. Enter the network address of an available WINS name server. WINS allows you to specify remote systems by their host names rather than IP addresses. If a specific IP address (instead of a name) is entered for a connection, it is used to make the connection. These entries can be supplied through DHCP, if DHCP is used. DNS and WINS provide essentially the same function, name resolution. If both DNS and WINS are available, the thin client attempts to resolve the name using DNS first and then WINS.

You can enter two WINS Server addresses (primary and secondary), separated by a semicolon, comma, or space.

c. Enter the digit multiplier of 30 seconds in the TCP Timeout box to set the time-out value of a TCP connection. The value must be 1 or 2 which means the connection time-out value is from 1x30= 30 seconds to 2x30= 60 seconds. If the data for connecting to the server is not acknowledged and the connection is time out, setting the time-out period retransmits the sent data and again tries to connect to the server till the connection is established.

The 10 MB Full-Duplex option can be selected locally. However, this mode can be negotiated through Auto-Detect.

c. The IPv4 check box is selected by default. Click Properties to configure the following options:

Dynamically allocated over DHCP/BOOTPSelect this option to enable your thin client to automatically receive information from the DHCP server. The network administrator must configure the DHCP server by using DHCP options to provide information. Any value that is entered locally in the Options tab is replaced by the DHCP value. If the DHCP server fails to provide replacement values, the locally entered value is used.

Statically specified IP AddressSelect this option to manually enter the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway. IP AddressEnter a valid network address in the server environment. The network administrator must provide

this information. Subnet MaskEnter the value of the subnet mask. A subnet mask is used to gain access to machines on other

subnets. The subnet mask is used to differentiate the location of other IP addresses with two choicessame subnet or other subnet. If the location is a different subnet, messages that are sent to that address must be sent through the default gateway. This does not depend on the value that is specified through local configuration or through DHCP. The network administrator must provide this value.

Default gatewayUse of gateways is optional. Gateways are used to interconnect multiple networksrouting or delivering IP packets between them. The default gateway is used for accessing the Internet or an Intranet with multiple subnets. If no gateway is specified, the thin client can only address other systems on the same subnet. Enter the address of the router that connects the thin client to the Internet. The address must exist on the same

Click Properties, and use the following guidelines: Wait DHCPSelect this option to enable your thin client to consider IPv6 DHCP before you log in. If you do not

select this option, and DHCP is enabled, the system still waits for IPv4 DHCP. Dynamically allocated over DHCP/BOOTPSelect this option to enable your thin client to automatically receive

information from the DHCP server. The network administrator must configure the DHCP server (using DHCP options) to provide information. Any value that is entered locally in the Options tab is replaced by the DHCP value. If the DHCP server fails to provide replacement values, the locally entered value is used.

Statically specified IP AddressSelect this option to manually enter the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway. IP AddressEnter a valid network address in the server environment. The network administrator must provide

this information. Subnet Prefix LenEnter the prefix length of the IPv6 subnet. Default gatewayUse of gateways is optional. For more information, see various IPv4-supported options in this

section. DNS serversUse of DNS is optional. DNS allows you to specify remote systems by their host names rather than IP

addresses. If a specific IP address (instead of a name) is entered for a connection, it rather than DNS is used to make the connection. Enter the network address of an available DNS server. The value for this box may be supplied by a DHCP server. If the DHCP server provides this value, it replaces any locally configured value. If the DHCP server does not provide this value, the locally configured value is used.

NOTE: If you enable IPv6 for both ENET0 and ENET1, IPv6 routes through the Ethernet connection that fetches

the IPv6 address first.

e. Select the Enable the IEEE802.1x authentication check box, and from the EAP type drop-down list, select TLS, LEAP, PEAP or FAST.

Configuring the proxy settings

The network Proxy tab supports Wyse Management Suite, HDX Flash Redirection, and RealTime Multimedia Engine (RTME).

Supported protocolsHDX FR, WMS and RTME

For Wyse Management Suite: HTTP, HTTPS and Socks5 (recommended) protocols are supported. For RTME: HTTP, and HTTPS protocols are supported.

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Network Setup. The Network Setup dialog box is displayed.

2. Click the Proxy tab, and do the following:

a. Select the Enable Proxy Settings on DNS/DHCP Server check box to use DHCP option tags or DNS records for defining the Wyse Management Suite proxy (SOCKS5) information. By default, this option is selected. You can fetch proxy settings using the DHCP option or DNS SRV records during the system bootup. The DNS record takes precedence over the DHCP option tag. There are two ways to enable or disable this optionThinOS GUI and INI parameter.

b. Enter the HTTP proxy port number or HTTPS proxy port number, User name and Password in the respective fields. However, credential pass through ($UN/$PW) is not recommended because it starts before user sign on.

Wyse Management Suite uses both HTTP/HTTPS and MQTT protocols to communicate with the WMS/MQTT server. However, the HTTP proxy cannot redirect TCP packages to the MQTT server which requires a SOCKS5 proxy server. If there is only HTTP server available, then the real-time command that requires MQTT does not work.

HTTP/HTTPS proxy default port is 808, and SOCKS5 proxy default port is 1080.

c. Select the Use the first proxy server for all protocols check box to allow all the protocols to use the same server in the HTTP Proxy fields. Both HTTP and HTTPS proxy use the same host and port, and SOCKS5 proxy agent uses HTTP host with default Socks5 port (1080).

If SOCKS5 proxy is configured, then WMS proxy uses the SOCKS5 only. If SOCKS5 is not configured, then WMS proxy searches for alternative protocols, for example, HTTP in the configuration.

54 Configuring connectivity

d. Specify the supported applications as Wyse Management Suite, FR and RTME separated by a semicolon in the Apply proxy server on field.

3. Click OK to save the settings.

User scenario 1. Configure correct proxy server host and port. 2. Configure the user credentials according to the proxy server settings.

Introduction to HealthCast

HealthCast Single Sign-On (SSO) solution is designed to improve user convenience, streamline workflow, and strengthen security compliance in demanding environments. The same proximity cards used for physical access are used to tap-in and tap-out of unique user sessions and to tap-over any sessions unintentionally left open on the ThinOS devices. Typically, you must type in your password only one time each day and use your proximity cards to streamline workflow and save time as they move between shared computers securely. Also, proximity cards can be secured with a PIN, if configured by the organization. The HealthCast SSO solution also supports user self-service password reset so that you can reset your own passwords without the need to call the help desk.

NOTE: HealthCast SSO Solution on ThinOS is a client-server solution. ThinOS provides the client-side functionality, but

you must also install and configure the HealthCast Server components on a server system in order for the solution to work

properly. Contact HealthCast on HealthCast website for one or more server installation executables, server requirements,

and configuration information.

Configuring HealthCast on ThinOS

HealthCast Web API Server is integrated with ThinOS release to implement the HealthCast SSO solution. To use the HealthCast SSO solution, ThinOS must be configured to use the HealthCast Web API Server. You can do this by using the INI file (wnos.ini), or using the ThinOS UI. Dell recommends you to use the INI file for large deployments.

ThinOS UI configuration

To use the HealthCast Web API, configure the HealthCast settings on the thin client side. To configure, do the following: 1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Remote Connections.

The Remote Connections dialog box is displayed.

74 Configuring connectivity

registration process. This is a one-time event after which you can use the card wherever HealthCast is

installed. Manual login and lock/unlock terminalIf you do not have a card, or choose not to use your card, then you can

manually log in using your user name and password. Administrators can disable manual login, if they wish, so that users can sign on with their proximity cards. You can also lock or unlock the terminal, if you have signed on with a manual

login. Proximity card login and lock/unlock terminalAfter the proximity card is registered, tap the card at a terminal to login.

Configuring connectivity 75

You can lock the session to secure it, but leave the remote session connected for fast access when you return. To do this, tap the proximity card and the session is locked.

To resume the session, tap the card again.

Walk awayTerminals can be configured to lock or log off sessions that have been left open. The time that will elapse before automatic lock or log off can be set by an administrator using the convenient web administration application.

Tap-OverIf a session is locked or left open, a second user can tap their own proximity card and this will disconnect the first session and log the second user into their own unique session.

Forgotten cardIf you forget your card at home, you can receive a temporary card and register it for the day using the same easy registration process mentioned in this section.

76 Configuring connectivity

Lost or stolen cardIf you report a card as lost or stolen, an administrator can immediately disable the card using the convenient web administration application. This prevents anyone else from using it.

Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR)If SSPR enabled by an administrator, you can register for SSPR and reset your passwords without calling the help

desk. Easy to use web-based administration toolAdministrators can quickly and easily configure settings, manage proximity

cards, and users using a web-based administration tool.

The address can be supplied through DHCP, if DHCP is used. If you configure DHCP_Scope option with ftp://server address, http://server address, or https://server address, the File Servers/Path field is filled with ftp://server address/Wyse, http://server address/Wyse, or https://server address/Wyse respectively.

NOTE: Dell Technologies recommends using HTTPS instead of FTP or HTTP as it is a secure connection.

a. File Servers/PathAllows maximum of 127 characters for file server, and maximum of 127 characters for root path. The data specifies part of the path to be used when the server is accessed. By default the File Servers/Path field is filled with https:// after imaging the thin client or after performing a factory reset.

File server supports failover list. A failover list consists of one or more file server pairs specified in the order of preference. You can provide multiple file servers separated by either a semicolon or colon. The list must not exceed 127 characters. When connecting to a file server, the client attempts to connect to each pair in an order until it finds a working file server pair. It is recommended to limit the file server directory access to administrators.

NOTE: If you use ftp:// or http:// in the File Servers/Path field, a warning message is displayed. This message is

also added in the event log and the First Boot Wizard screen.

b. UsernameEnter the username to log in to the file server. Use maximum of 31 characters.

NOTE: If you use an FTP connection, a warning message is displayed, recommending to use a user-specific

Configuring the Wyse Device Agent settings

Use this tab to configure the Wyse Device Manager and Wyse Management Suite settings.

ThinOS supports all the Wyse Management Suite Group Policy settings.

Dell Wyse Device Agent (WDA) has been enhanced to support the following three types of customer security environments:

Highly secured environmentAdministrators must log in to each device, and use the USB device or File Server to import the server certificate. The server certificate is retained in the device until you reset the device to factory default settings. The device is secured and is not susceptible to a rouge DHCP or DNS server for a new device discovery. Administrators can use either CA-signed or self-signed server certificates.

Secured environmentAdministrators can configure the server certificate fingerprint as a DNS_Text record or a DHCP_Scope option. If WDA detects the DNS_Text record or the DHCP_Scope option, the server certificate fingerprint is distributed over the network and added locally to the device. When the device is reimaged, the server certificate fingerprint is removed from the device. Administrators can use either CA-signed or self-signed server certificates.

Normal environmentYou can use either CA-signed or self-signed server certificates for device discovery. The device must establish a connection with CA for certificate validation. This applies when there is no option of DNS_Text record or DHCP_Scope but the server certificate is CA-signed. If the certificate is a self-signed certificate, you must accept the certificate security warning message.

To configure the Wyse Management Suite settings, do the following:

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Central Configuration. The Central Configuration dialog box is displayed.

2. Click WDA > WMS, and use the following guidelines:

Configuring connectivity 79

By default, the WMS option is selected. Wyse Management Suite service automatically runs after the client boot up.

If the first discovery, for example, the Wyse Management Suite service is not successful, it seeks for the next priority, for example, WDM service. This continues until a discovery is successful. If all discoveries fail, it is started again automatically after a fixed time24 hours.

From ThinOS 8.6_710 onwards, after the initial INI configurations are received from Wyse Management Suite, the options DNSFileServerDiscover, WMSEnable, and DHCPOptionsRemap are disabled if they are not previously defined. These options are enabled after a factory reset or you can use INI parameters to enable them. For more information about using INI parameters, see Dell Wyse ThinOS Version 8.6 INI Reference Guide at www.dell.com/support.

Adaptive transport is a data transport mechanism for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. This mechanism enables the underlying protocol to switch between the Citrix protocol called Enlightened Data Transport (EDT) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) for better performance. EDT is added on top of UDP and enhances the data throughput for all ICA virtual channels. ThinOS supports adaptive transport using Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), and does not support adaptive transport through User Datagram Protocol (UDP) except the audio channel. For more information about Adaptive transport, see docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-virtual-apps-desktops/technical-overview/hdx/adaptive-transport.html.

For more information about Citrix Receiver features, see the Citrix documentation at www.citrix.com.

90 Configuring the connection brokers

Known issues

RTME operation system on ThinOS is displayed as Linux. The RTME 1.8 feature on ThinOS does not work with other versions of HDX RealTime connector due to known Citrix

limitation. If you change the audio device during an RTME call, the audio input or output might stop responding. In a video conference call, when different user is speaking, the on-screen video switches to the active user, but takes a few

seconds to switch over.

Verifying the RTME 2.x status

This section describes the working of RTME 2.x and how to verify the RTME status.

Salient features

Native Skype For Business client menus and operations are available. Better initialization eliminates DNS confusions. Supports more call features, such as call delegation, and response group. Supports video codec H.264-UC, and audio codec SILK introduced by RTME 2.1. Call Admission Control support Bandwidth Policy Control DSCP/ QoS Configuration Ability to turn off version mismatch warnings for acceptable combinations of RealTime Connector and RealTime Media

Engine.

To verify the RTME status, do the following:

1. Install the correct connector on the remote desktop.

2. Install the correct package on the ThinOS device.

3. Connect the audio or video devices.

NOTE: USB redirection needs to be disabled for audio or video devices.

4. Connect to the remote desktop using SFB client.

5. Verify the RTME connector icon on taskbar. The status is displayed as Connected.

6. Verify the About and Settings option from the RTME connector menu.

7. Verify the audio/video devices from SFB client menus.

8. Establish the video/audio calls.

9. Pick up the calls by either clicking the mouse or using the headset button.

10. Verify the Call Statistics from the RTME connector menu.

NOTE: RTME 2.2 and later versions support various call scenarios. For more information, refer to Citrix documentation.

USB Video Class (UVC) 1.1 and 1.5 camera hardware encoding / H.264 (CAM) are supported in RTME 2.2 and later versions. This is applicable for qualified cameras only, for example Logitech C930e.

In the Call Statistics window, Video Codec = H.264-UC (CAM)) is displayed for P2P RTME video call in the Sent column. For group calls with standard SFB, the call statistics displays Video Codec = H.264-UC (CAM) in the Sent column. This improves video call quality/resolution compared to Video Codec H.264 (SW); for example: P2P video call resolution upgrade from 480 x 270 to 640 x 360.

Limitations

The video sent from client in call is decided by capabilities of both endpoints in the call. Sending higher video from one client does not mean that the client has better capability than the other one in call.

RTME status dialog displays operation system as Linux. Changing the video/audio device during RTME call results in issue with audio input or output. Volume: Dell recommends you to adjust the speaker volume in audio settings of SFB client to high. By default, the SFB client

audio volume is set to 40 percent. The default volume is a bit low. Camera/Video: The local camera setting does not affect/impact the RTME video output because of the RTME design.

Configuring the connection brokers 91

In Citrix RTME version 2.3, the video performance of applications is designed for a lower CPU consumption. Therefore, the video resolution may be downgraded compared to version 2.2.

ThinOS RTME package update does not support hardware acceleration. For more information, see the Citrix documentation at docs.citrix.com.

Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI

Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI (JVDI) is the Unified Communications solution offered by Cisco for virtual deployments. It supports audio-video conferencing, and instant messaging on the hosted virtual desktops (HVD). The Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI software offloads the audio or video processing from the virtual desktop servers to the thin client. All audio and video signals are routed directly between the endpoints without entering the HVD.

Introduction

Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI enables you to make and receive calls using the Cisco Unified Communications application. Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI consists of the following two components: Cisco JVDI Agent Cisco JVDI Client Cisco JVDI Agent is the JVDI connector that runs on the Citrix desktop or server. Cisco JVDI client is the JVDI package that runs on the thin client. The Jabber client that runs on the Citrix server handles the authentication and the media processing is achieved on the thin client.

The JVDI PKG uses a major portion of the disk on platforms with low disk space. If you install JVDI PKG on thin clients with low disk space, other large PKGs may fail to extract and install. For example, you cannot install JVDI PKG, Horizon, and RTME PKG together on Wyse 5010 Thin Client. However, you can install the following PKGs together on Wyse 5010 and Wyse 5040 thin clients: RTME, FR, and JVDI

Limitations

JVDI package cannot be installed on Dell Wyse 5040, 5010, and 7010 thin clients. Dell Wyse 3040 thin client supports video call up to 360p. The video call with 720p is not supported due to high CPU cost

with multimedia playback simultaneously. Dell recommends that you restrict the video up to 360p in the server settings. Dell does not recommend video call in 4K display resolution on all platforms due to low performance. JVDI version in ThinOS 8.6 must be compatible with JVDI agent and Jabber version. For example, JVDI version 12.6 in

ThinOS 8.6 supports JVDI agent and Jabber version 12.6. Audio output is poor when you enable the JVDI audio during the full screen video call on Wyse 5060 and 3040 thin clients.

This is due to hardware performance limitation. Wyse 5070 thin client supports full screen video call with good audio output.

Using Citrix NetScaler with CensorNet MFA authentication

SMS PASSCODE is re-branded as CensorNet MFA. You can configure NetScaler Gateway to use a One Time Passcode/ Password (OTP) in the form of a personal identification number (PIN) or passcode. To obtain this one-time password, you must install CensorNet app on your mobile. After you enter the passcode or PIN, the authentication server invalidates the one-time password. You cannot enter the same PIN or password again. For more information about configuring one-time passcode, see the Citrix documentation.

Prerequisites NetScaler v12.0 and later is installed on your client. SMS PASSCODE v9.0 SP1 is installed and configured in your network. You can download the SMS PASSCODE v9.0 file from

download.smspasscode.com/public/6260/SmsPasscode-900sp1. Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) authentication policy is configured and bind to the NetScaler gateway

server. CensorNet app is installed and configured on your mobile device.

To use the one-time passcode on ThinOS, do the following:

1. Log in to ThinOS, and connect to the NetScalar Gateway URL.

2. Enter your credentials (user ID and password), and press Enter. The PASSCODE dialog box is displayed. You will receive a push notification from the CensorNet App on your phone with the code.

3. Click OK.

98 Configuring the connection brokers

If the authentication is successful, then you are logged into the Citrix session.

Configuring Citrix NetScaler using Okta

Okta provides Single Sign-On (SSO) capability using Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. ThinOS supports Okta through the Citrix NetScaler Gateway 11.0 or later. The Okta RADIUS Agent is used for user authentication. The Okta RADIUS server agent assigns the user authentication to Okta using single-factor authentication (SFA) or multifactor authentication (MFA).

For more information about configuring Citrix NetScaler Gateway to use the Okta RADIUS Agent, see the Citrix NetScaler Gateway Radius Configuration Guide at help.okta.com.

NOTE:

On the ThinOS client, you need FQDN at the login window. If you do not use username@fqdn during login, you must

set the following INI parameter:

pnliteserver=https:// CAGUserAsUPN=yes

After you enable this INI parameter, the domain must use the domain.com format in the login window.

Phone authentication by using Okta is supported only in US and Canada.

Limitation

ThinOS version 8.6 supports only Okta with NetScaler Radius mode.

Citrix Cloud services

ThinOS supports Citrix Cloud services. It acts as a single management console to deploy applications or desktops on any virtual or cloud setup for a secure digital workspace. For more information about Citrix Cloud services, see the Citrix Cloud article at docs.citrix.com.

Using multiple audio in Citrix session

ThinOS supports multiple audio device utilizations in the XenDesktop or XenApp version 7.6 and later. You can connect or disconnect the audio devices anytime during the session, but the behavior is similar to a local desktop. With multiple device support, you can connect multiple audio devices and select a specific device for a specific application.

The Audio Plug N Play policy must be enabled on the Citrix Remote Desktop Session (RDS) desktop. The Audio Plug N Play policy setting allows or prevents the use of multiple audio devices to record and play sound. This setting is enabled by default.

NOTE: On the Citrix Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) desktop, pre-configuration is not required.

Supported devicesUSB headset, webcam (without USB redirection), and analog headset devices are supported.

The following are valid working conditions for multiple audio: Using Citrix HDX generic audio

1. Select the audio device as PC Mic and Speaker. 2. Configure the speaker or microphone. 3. For secondary ringer, select the audio devices excluding the devices that are already selected.

Using Citrix RealTime Multimedia Engine (RTME) 1. Select the audio device as HID headset with PC Mic and Speaker. 2. Set PC Mic and Speaker to configure the speaker or microphone. 3. For secondary ringer, select the audio devices excluding the devices that are already selected.

The following scenarios must be considered during multiple audio settings: ThinOS default audio is set to the latest plug-in audio device. Session default audio is set to the ThinOS default audio. However, this option can be changed. Restart Skype for Business/Lync client after you plug in and remove the device. ICA RTP audio is supported with multiple audio connections. During a call, the audio device settings can be switched without plugging in or plugging out the device. Multiple audio can be shared across sessions.

Configuring ICA connections

To configure the ICA connections:

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Remote Connections. The Remote Connections dialog box is displayed.

2. In the Broker Setup tab, from the drop-down list, select the Broker type as None.

3. Click ICA connection protocol, and click Configure. The Default ICA dialog box is displayed.

NOTE: Default ICA is always used for direct connection to a published application and not for StoreFront or PNAgent.

4. Click the Connection tab.

To configure the ICA connections, do the following:

Figure 15. Default ICA

a. Server or Published ApplicationSelect the type of connection to which the settings apply. b. Connection DescriptionEnter the descriptive name that is to be displayed in the connection list (38 characters

maximum). c. Browser ServersEnter a delimited (comma or semicolon) list of IP addresses or DNS-registered names of ICA servers

that contain the master browsers list, or that can direct to another server that contains the list.

The master browsers list is generated automatically by a browsing program on one of the ICA servers (selected by negotiation between servers). It is used to provide the information that is displayed in the Server Name or IP box. No

102 Configuring the connection brokers

entry is needed if the list is on an ICA server in the same network segment as the thin client. No entry is necessary if the connection is to a server, or if the server name or IP contains the IP address of the server.

d. Host Name or Application Name (title depends on the Server or Published Application option that is selected)You can enter a delimited semicolon or comma-separated list of server host names or IP addresses, or you can select from the list of ICA servers or published applications that are obtained from the ICA master browser. You can also use Browse next to the box to make the selection you want.

If you enter a delimited list of servers, the thin client will attempt to connect to the next server on the list if the previous server attempt fails. If you use the list and the selected connection fails, the thin client will attempt to connect to the next one on the list.

NOTE: The Host Name may be resolved using one of three mechanisms: ICA master browser, DNS, or WINS. Master

browser is the only mechanism that can resolve a published application unless manual entry is made in DNS for

the application. DNS uses the default domain name in the network control panel to attempt to construct an FQDN.

However, it tries to resolve the name without using the default value.

e. Encryption LevelAllows you to select the security level of communications between the thin client and the ICA server.

Basic (the default option) is the lowest level of security. Basic enables faster communication between the device and the ICA server because it requires less processing than the higher levels of encryption.

NOTE: The encryption selection applies to the security of communications between the thin client and the ICA

server only. It is independent of the security settings of individual applications on the ICA server. For example, most

web financial transactions require the thin client to use 128-bit encryption. However, transaction information could

be exposed to a lower level of security if the thin client encryption is not also set to 128bits.

f. Use HTTP for browsingWhen selected, the thin client, by default, uses HTTP when browsing. g. Alternate address via firewallWhen selected, the thin client uses an alternate IP address that is returned from the

ICA master browser to get through firewall. This is used for the Windows login when the connection is activated. h. Display ResolutionSelect the display resolution for this connection.

If you select the Published Application option, the Connection Display allows you to select the Seamless Display Resolution option.

i. ColorsSelect the color depth of the ICA session. If High Colors (16-bits) or True Colors is selected and the ICA server does not support this color depth, the thin client sets the color depth to the lower value, for example, 256 Colors (8-bits).

j. Window mode and Full screen modeSelect the initial view of the application and desktop in a windowed screen or full screen.

k. Auto-connect on start-upWhen this option is selected, the thin client automatically connects the session on start- up.

l. Reconnect after disconnectWhen this option is selected, the thin client automatically reconnects to a session after a non operator-initiated disconnect. The wait interval is the value that you set in the Delay before reconnecting box (enter the number of seconds 13600). The default is 20 seconds, if there is no INI parameter used for this connection, or if you are a stand-alone user.

5. Click logon tab, and use the following guidelines:

a. Logging on areaEnter username, password, domain name, and logon mode.

If the login username, password, and domain name boxes are not displayed, enter the information manually in the ICA server login screen. Login UsernameMaximum of 31 characters is allowed. PasswordMaximum of 19 characters is allowed. Domain NameMaximum of 31 characters is allowed. Logon ModeSelect User-specified credentials, Smart Card, or Local User.

Figure 17. Default ICAOptions

a. Autoconnect to local devicesSelect any options (Printers, Serials, USB, Smart Cards, and Disks) to have the thin client automatically connect to the devices.

b. Allow font smoothingWhen selected, enables font smoothing (smooth type). c. Optimize for low speed linkWhen selected, allows optimization for low-speed connections, such as reducing audio

quality and/or decreasing protocol-specific cache size. Intended for a connection spanning a WAN link or using dial-up. d. Enable session reliabilityWhen enabled, session reliability allows you to momentarily lose connection to the server

without having to re-authenticate upon regaining a connection. Instead of the connection time out, the session is kept alive on the server and is made available to the client upon regaining connectivity. Session reliability is most relevant for wireless devices.

7. Click OK to save the settings.

If the session reliability is enabled in an active session, and your network connection is not configured properly, a warning message is displayed with time elapsed after warning issuance.

ICA SuperCodec

ICA SuperCodec is a H.264 decoder integrated on ThinOS ICA client side. Server encodes the session image into H.264 stream and sends it to client side. Client decodes the H.264 stream by SuperCodec and display the image on screen. This feature improves user experience especially for HDX 3D Pro desktops.

Supported Environment

Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly XenDesktop) and Citrix Virtual Apps (formerly XenApp) version 7.5 or later versions

Prerequisities

In Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly XenDesktop) and Citrix Virtual Apps (formerly XenApp) version 7.9 and later, the default setting for Use video codec for compression is Use when preferred. For best performance on ThinOS device, Dell recommends that you set the Use video codec for compression policy to For the entire screen. Alternatively, you can also set the policy to Do not use video codec. This allows ThinOS to use ThinWire Plus that saves bandwidth and reduces CPU overhead.

NOTE: For ICA connections, there is no INI parameter.

If you set the Use video codec for compression policy to Do not use video codec, ICA SuperCodec is disabled, and

ThinOS does not print any log.

Anonymous logon

The Anonymous logon feature enables the users to log into the StoreFront server configured with unauthenticated store without Active Directory (AD) user credentials. It allows unauthenticated users to access the applications instead of AD accounts.

NOTE: Anonymous logon is not supported with legacy mode of StoreFront server.

Configuring the Citrix UPD printer

Use of Citrix Universal Printer Driver (Citrix UPD) ensures that all printers connected to a client can also be used from a virtual desktop or application session without integrating a new printer driver in the data center. Citrix UPD is the base of Citrix Universal Printer. It is an auto-created printer object that uses the Citrix UPD and is not tied to any specific printer defined on the client.

To configure the Citrix UPD usage on ThinOS:

1. Connect a printer to ThinOS client.

2. From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Printer.

The Printer Setup dialog box is displayed.

3. Enter the name of the printer in the Printer Name box.

Configuring VMware VMware virtualization enables you to run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine. VMware Horizon Client is a locally installed software application that communicates between View Connection Server and thin client operating system. It provides access to centrally hosted virtual desktops from your thin clients.

In every ThinOS release, the Horizon Client version may be updated to newer version. For information about the latest Horizon Client version, see the latest Dell Wyse ThinOS Release Notes at www.dell.com/manuals.

NOTE: If you are upgrading your thin client to the latest ThinOS version, you must ensure that the Horizon server or agent

version is updated to support the latest horizon client version. For more information about the client and server/agent

version compatibility, see the VMware Product Interoperability Matrices page at www.vmware.com.

This section provides information about how to configure a VMware broker connection on your ThinOS device, and other VMware features that you can configure on ThinOS.

Configuring the VMware broker connection

To configure the VMware broker setup:

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Remote Connections. The Remote Connections dialog box is displayed.

2. In the Broker Setup tab, from the drop-down list, select VMware view, and do the following:

Broker ServerEnter the IP address/Hostname/FQDN of the Broker Server. Auto Connect ListEnter the name of the desktops that you want to launch automatically after logging in to the

respective broker. More than one desktop can be entered. Each desktop name is separated by semicolon, and is case-sensitive.

Security modeSelect the preferred security mode from the following options: WarningWarn Security requires an FQDN address with a self-signed certificate, or without any certificate.

However, a corresponding warning message is displayed for the user to continue. FullFull Security requires an FQDN address with a domain certificate. LowSecurity allows an FQDN or an IP address with or without a certificate. DefaultFollows global security mode settings.

Connection ProtocolFrom the drop-down list, select the type of protocol connection. By default, the option is set to Server Default.

Configuring the connection brokers 119

Blast and RDPThis option is available on both PCoIP enabled clients and non-PCoIP clients. Select this protocol connection to display the desktop in either Blast or RDP connections.

Blast and PCoIPThis option is available only for PCoIP enabled clients. Select this protocol connection to display the desktop in either Blast or PCoIP connections.

PCoIP and RDPThis option is available only for PCoIP enabled clients. Select this protocol connection to display the desktop in either PCoIP or RDP connections.

Log in anonymously using Unauthenticated AccessSelect this check box to anonymously log in to the VMware session with application remoting.

3. Click OK to save the settings.

Limitations

ThinOS supports four displays with 4K resolution in a Horizon blast session. Due to low performance, Dell recommends that you do not use four displays with 4K resolution.

Vertical Synchronization does not work in Blast session with four 4K resolution. Video performance is low when you play a video in Blast session with 4K resolution. ThinOS supports audio device USB redirection. However, Dell does not recommend using audio device USB direction due to

low audio quality. The text copy and paste functionality between local and Blast sessions works only after you perform a session switch.

Using VMware Horizon View broker and desktop

VMware Horizon View Broker timeoutThe VMware Horizon View Broker timeout does not force the user to sign out from the broker anymore when the secure tunnel is enabled.

In earlier version of ThinOS, when the broker times out, the user session is disconnected and the user is logged out from the broker. From ThinOS 8.2 release, ThinOS disconnects the user session from the broker, but does not force user logout. This is because the user has local connections other than the broker desktop, and these connections are active when the broker timeout is reached.

PCoIP session NUM/CAP keyboard status synchronizes with session instead of thin clientThis is applicable for session startup only. The PCoIP session keyboard NUM/ CAP status synchronizes from remote session to client, whereas RDP/ ICA synchronizes status from local to remote session.

For example:

1. Set keyboard NUM=off in current PCoIP session.

2. Disconnect the session. 3. Set client keyboard NUM=on.

4. Reconnect to the PCoIP session. 5. The keyboard NUM status in both session and client is updated to NUM=off.

RDS desktop through PCoIP/BlastYou can view and connect to the Remote Desktop Service (RDS) desktop through the PCoIP/Blast protocol in the broker using PCoIP/Blast enabled the ThinOS clients. In VMware Horizon View 6.0 and later versions, the RDS desktop has RDP, PCoIP, or Blast connections based on server configurations.

NOTE: The Horizon application is supported on both PCoIP and Blast. RDP is not supported.

The RDS desktop protocol switch message dialog box is provided in this release. A typical user scenario is as follows:

1. Connect to the RDS desktop through protocol. For example, RDP. 2. Disconnect from the desktop. 3. Connect to the same RDS desktop through another protocol. For example, PCoIP.

The message dialog box is displayed, allowing you with an option to continue.

The options available are:

CancelYou can end the PCoIP connection, and connect to the desktop in RDP again. Log Out and ReconnectYou can connect to the desktop through PCoIP, and the earlier session in RDP is logged out.

For information about compatibility of Horizon Virtualization Pack for SFB components, see the article 54773 at kb.vmware.com.

ThinOS uses the VMware binary. For information about the Skype for Business limitations, see the Configuring Skype for Business document at docs.vmware.com.

Known issues

Table 21. Known issues

Description Workaround

If the Blast session resolution is higher than 1920 x 1080 during SFB calls with full screen, the mouse stops responding.

Do not use full screen during SFB calls in the blast session with resolution greater than or equal to 2560 x 1440.

On Wyse 5010, 5040, and 7010 thin clients, the performance is low during the Horizon SFB video call.

Do not use Horizon SFB video call on Wyse 5010, 5040, and 7010 thin clients.

After you install the JVDI package, the Trap 14 error occurs if you switch the playback device from HD audio to DP audio during the Horizon SFB call.

Do not load the JVDI package if you want to use only the Horizon package.

You cannot use the key on the headset to pick up or end a call. There is no workaround in this release.

Optimized mode and Fallback mode

In Optimized mode, the Skype for Business delivers an optimal performance. In Fallback mode, the Skype For Business calls are not optimized. On the lower right of the virtual desktop, the tooltip of the Virtualization Pack icon indicates the VMware Horizon Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business mode.

The following screenshot displays the Virtualization pack for Skype for Business in Optimized mode:

Figure 20. Optimized mode

132 Configuring the connection brokers

If the Optimized mode icon is not displayed, the Virtualization Pack is running in Fallback mode. This is because of the version mismatch between the Horizon Client on the thin client and the Horizon Agent on virtual desktop.

For information about compatibility of Horizon Virtualization Pack for SFB components, see the Horizon Client 4.8 or later and Agent 7.5 or later Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business is not compatible with older Client and Agent releases article at kb.vmware.com.

Change Optimized mode to Fallback mode

To change the Optimized mode to Fallback mode, or to disable the Virtualization pack for Skype for Business on the Horizon desktop, do the following:

1. On the VMware Horizon desktop, open the Windows Registry Editor.

2. Rename the registry keys based on the following deployment scenarios:

Using multi-monitors in PCoIP session

This section is applicable to Wyse 5070 thin client. ThinOS supports multiple-monitor display to run virtual machines on each monitor.

User scenario:

1. Connect multiple monitors to the ThinOS device.

2. In the Display Setup dialog box, disable Mirror Mode, and configure the display layout.

3. Launch a full screen PCoIP session.

Display numbersA virtual machine needs sufficient video memory to support three or four monitors. The default video memory on VMware vSphere supports only two monitors.

Supports one session up to four monitors in span mode with resolution up to 2560 x 1600. Supports one session up to two monitors in span mode with resolution up to 3840 x 2160.

The maximum number of monitors that can be stacked vertically is two. If you use more than two monitors, the monitors must be in the same mode and have the same screen resolution. For instance, if you use three monitors, all three monitors must be either in portrait mode or landscape mode, and must use the same screen resolution.

Display layoutThe display layout of the monitors must be aligned up and down, or left and right. Improper alignment results in unusual display.

3D renderingYou can configure 3D graphics rendering for connected desktops. To use the 3D rendering feature, use up to two monitors with resolution up to 1920 x 1200.

Blast H.264The following table describes the performance of H.264 decoder in VMware Horizon sessions that use the VMware Blast display protocol:

Table 26. Blast H.264 decoding

Screen resolution within VMware Horizon Blast session

Blast H.264 decoding in VMware Horizon Blast session

Summary

Session display width is less than or equal to 1920 pixels.

Blast H.264 decoding is always enabled. Horizon client uses Blast H.264 decoding even if the H.264 decoder setting is disabled using GUI or INI options.

Session display width is greater than 1920 pixels.

Blast H.264 decoding is disabled by default. You can enable Blast H.264 decoding either on the ThinOS GUI or by deploying the INI parameter.

By default, Horizon client does not use Blast H.264 decoding. If the Blast H.264 decoder setting is enabled on ThinOS, then the Horizon client uses H.264 decoding. Enabling H.264 may downgrade the session performance.

For more information about the monitors and screen resolution, see the Monitors and Screen resolution section in the Horizon 7 Architecture Planning article at docs.vmware.com. However, Dell does not recommend that you use four displays with 4K resolution due to low performance.

Blast Virtual Printing

Virtual printing with VMware Blast allows you to use local or network printers from the Blast desktop without the need of installing the additional print drivers on the remote desktop. For each printer configured locally on ThinOS, you must map the printer to the VMware Blast desktop. ThinOS Blast printer mapping is equivalent to VMware Blast virtual printing.

To map your printer, do the following:

NOTE: LPT printer is considered as an example to explain the printer mapping scenario. Printer mapping in ThinOS works

similar to LPT for LPD and SMB printers.

1. Power on the ThinOS client with the VMware View broker configured in the Broker Setup tab. Set the connection protocol as All Supported from the Connection Protocol drop-down list.

2. Go to Global Connection Settings > Session, and retain the Exclude printer devices check box selection. This option is selected by default.

3. Plug in a USB printer to the ThinOS client terminal.

4. Go to System Setup > Printer. The Printer Setup dialog box is displayed.

5. In the Printer Setup dialog box, do the following:

a. From the Select Port drop-down list, select LPT 1. b. Enter valid printer name and printer identification. c. Select the Enable the printer device check box.

Figure 22. Options

7. Connect to a VMware Blast session. Go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers. The printer that is configured locally in ThinOS is mapped to the session.

The mapped printers driver is TP PS Driver and the port is TPVM port.

The virtual printer allows the ThinOS local printer to be mapped to the VMware Blast session without installing the printer driver in the session.

Enable hardware cursor in Blast session

The hardware cursor enables GPU to control the display of your mouse cursor. Hardware cursors have less latency.

ThinOS supports the hardware cursor in VMware Horizon session with Blast display protocol. Only two cursor colorsBlack and Whiteare supported.

By default, the software cursor is used in a Blast session, and the hardware cursor is disabled. If the hardware cursor is not enabled, the cursor uses the true color. If the hardware cursor is enabled, the cursor uses black and white colors.

To enable the hardware cursor in a Blast session, use the following INI parameter:

SessionConfig=Blast EnableHardwareCursor=yes

Enable relative mouse feature

The relative mouse feature is applicable for both PCoIP and Blast enabled thin clients. When you enable the relative mouse feature, Horizon Client uses relative coordinates to transmit data about the mouse pointer movement and improve the mouse performance. The relative mouse feature is supported on the following platforms: Wyse 3040 thin client Wyse 5010 thin client Wyse 5040 AIO thin client Wyse 5060 thin client Wyse 5070 thin client

For PCoIP enabled thin clients

Configuring the connection brokers 137

To enable the relative mouse feature in the Classic mode, do the following:

1. Connect to a remote desktop using the PCoIP display protocol.

2. Right-click the remote desktop icon on the ThinOS taskbar.

3. Click Enable Relative Mouse.

NOTE: To disable the relative mouse feature, right-click the remote desktop icon on the ThinOS taskbar, and click

NOTE: To disable the relative mouse feature, click the R icon that is displayed after the PCoIP session name.

For Blast enabled thin clients 1. Add SessionConfig=Blast EnableRelativeMouse=yes into the INI file. 2. Reboot the thin client.

You can see the entry [Horizon] enable relative mouse in the event log if Relative Mouse is enabled.

USB device splitting in Blast session

ThinOS supports the USB device splitting feature on the Nuance Dictaphone PowerMic II microphone in a Blast session. The USB device splitting feature enables you to split the composite device into its components. To enable this feature, use the following INI parameters:

Device=vusb InterfaceRedirect=yes Device=vusb ForceRedirect=0x00,0x00,0x03,0x00,0x00 SessionConfig=Blast viewusb.IncludeVidPid=Vid-0554_Pid-1001 viewusb.SplitVidPid=Vid-0554_Pid-1001(exintf:00;exintf:01;exintf:02)

After you enable the USB device splitting feature, the buttons on the PowerMic II are redirected to the blast session, and the audio mapping is retained in the local device.

For more information about the supported USB devices and USB configurations, see the Nuance SpeechMagic VMware View Extension - Supported USB Devices and USB Configuration article at kb.vmware.com.

Supporting Teradici SDK

The PCoIP Client Software Development Kit (SDK) is a set of libraries and binaries that you can use to build or customize a PCoIP client.

ThinOS supports the Teradici SDK version 2.9.

User scenario:

Behavior with earlier Teradici SDK versions: You were able to switch the USB disk redirection between sessions. For example, plug in the USB disk, and connect the desktop 1 and 2. The disk is redirected to desktop 1. If you disconnect from desktop 1, then the USB disk is redirected to desktop 2.

Behavior with Teradici SDK version 2.9: When you disconnect from desktop 1, the USB disk is not redirected to desktop 2. You must remove the USB disk and plug in the USB disk again for redirection.

Configuring PCoIP connections using Teradici Remote Workstation card

In ThinOS 8.6, you can directly configure the PCoIP connection using either the TERA2240 Remote Workstation Card or TERA2220 Remote Workstation Card. This feature is supported only on PCoIP-enabled thin clients. This feature only works with the direct PCoIP connection, and does not work when you connect using the Horizon View broker.

Prerequisites

138 Configuring the connection brokers

Ensure that the Teradici Remote Workstation card version matches the Teradici PCoIP SDK version 2.9. Ensure that host cards are connected to a remote workstation. Ensure that host cards are installed correctly, that is, connected to a remote workstation with GPU.

NOTE: The SDK in ThinOS does not function similar to Teradici zero client firmware. For example, the SDK in ThinOS does

not support USB redirection with the host card connection. This feature is mainly for workstation users working on the

server remotely.

To configure the PCoIP connection, do the following:

1. On ThinOS desktop, go to Connect Manager.

2. Click New, and then click PCoIP.

Configuring Microsoft Remote Desktop Microsoft Remote Desktop application allows you to access and manage the data and resources of a remote device using an internet connection. ThinOS supports RC4_HMAC_MD5 for RDP connections to compliment with AES128_HMAC_SHA1 or AES256_HMAC_SHA1.

This section provides information about how to configure the Remote desktop broker connection on your ThinOS device, and other remote desktop features that you can configure on ThinOS.

Configuring the Microsoft Remote Desktop broker connection

To configure the Microsoft Remote Desktop broker setup:

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Remote Connections.

The Remote Connections dialog box is displayed.

2. In the Broker Setup tab, from the drop-down list, select Microsoft, and do the following: Broker ServerEnter the IP address/Hostname/FQDN of the Broker Server. Auto Connect ListEnter the name of the desktops that you want to launch automatically after logging in to the

respective broker. More than one desktop can be entered. Each desktop name is separated by semi-colon, and is case-sensitive.

Security modeSelect the preferred security mode from the following options: WarningWarn Security requires an FQDN address with a self-signed certificate, or without any certificate.

However, a corresponding warning message is displayed for the user to continue. FullFull Security requires an FQDN address with a domain certificate. LowSecurity allows an FQDN or an IP address with or without a certificate. DefaultFollows global security mode settings.

NOTE: If you select the Security mode as Warning, a security pop-up window is displayed when the certificate is

invalid. If you select the Security mode as Low, you can continue without the warning message.

3. Click OK to save the settings.

3. Click RDP connection protocol, and click Configure. The Default RDP dialog box is displayed.

4. Click the Connection tab, and use the following guidelines:

a. Connection DescriptionEnter the descriptive name that is to appear in the connection list (38 characters maximum). b. Host NamesUse the list to select the valid DNS server name or the IP address of the server to which the thin client

connection is to be made. You can also use Browse next to the box to make the selection you want. For example, a list of WTS servers on the local network from which you can select.

NOTE: The server name may be resolved using one of two mechanisms: DNS, and WINS. DNS uses the default

domain name in the network control panel to attempt to construct an FQDN but will also try to resolve the name

without using the default.

c. Console modeSelect to set the RDP connection with Windows Console mode. d. Display ResolutionSelect the display resolution for your RDP connection.

In ThinOS version 8.6, you can select your preferred monitor on which you want to start the RDP session in full screen mode based on the following scenarios:

142 Configuring the connection brokers

Mirror mode is enabled on multi-display or single displayThe Default on screen x option is not displayed. The display resolution of the RDP connection is set as Default irrespective of the value configured in the onscreen=x INI parameter.

Span mode is enabled on multi-displayThe Default on screen x option is displayed. You can select your preferred display on which you want to start the RDP session. You can also set your preferred display using the onscreen INI parameter. After you deploy the INI parameter, the Default on screen x option is set automatically according to the configured INI settings.

NOTE: If the value defined in the onscreen parameter for your RDP connection is higher than the number of

displays connected to the thin client, the display resolution is set as Default. If you switch the display mode

between span and mirror, you must reboot the thin client to apply the INI settings.

e. ColorsSelect the color depth of the RDP session. If High Colors (16-bits) or True Colors (32-bits) is selected and the RDP server does not support this color depth, the thin client renegotiates the color depth to the lower value for example, 256 Colors (8-bits). The highest is 32-bits, if the hardware supports this color depth.

f. Window mode on 1 monitor or Full screen span all monitorsSelect the initial view of the session in window mode or full screen mode.

g. Auto-connect on start-upWhen selected, automatically connects the session on start-up. h. Re-connect after disconnectWhen selected, causes the thin client to automatically reconnect to a session after a

non-operator-initiated disconnect. If selected, the wait interval is that set in the Delay before re-connecting box (enter the number of seconds 1 to 3600) or the user profile for yes (20 seconds) or seconds. The default is 20 seconds, if there is no INI file description of this connection, or is a Stand-alone user, or is simply omitted.

You can reset the options in the Connection tab of the Connection Settings (RDP) dialog box. To reset, click the Reset VM command button. This command button is located in the upper-right of the dialog box. It appears only with a VDM broker connection.

5. Click the Logon tab, and use the following guidelines:

a. Logging on areaEnter login username, password, and domain name. If these boxes are not populated, you can enter the information manually in the RDP server login screen when the connection is made. Use the following guidelines:

b. Application (127 characters maximum) and Working Directory (63 characters maximum)Enter an initialization string and arguments, including an associated working directory, that you want to start automatically on the server when the connection is made.

c. Use TS GatewayEnables the use of Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) server when connecting. If required, then enter the IP address or URL of the TS Gateway server in the Server name box. You can also enable Use Same Info (if the server credentials are the same credentials as your Remote Desktop Credentials (Host remote computer credentials) in the Login Username, Password, and Domain name fields) or disable Use Same Info and enter the Server name, User name, Password, and Domain name of the TS Gateway server if required.

NOTE: A TS Gateway server is a type of gateway that enables authorized users to connect to remote computers

on a corporate network from any computer with an Internet connection. A TS Gateway server enables Remote

Desktop connections to a corporate network from the Internet without having to set up virtual private network

(VPN) connections. Ask your network administrator whether you need to specify a TS Gateway server.

User NameEnter a user name for the connection. PasswordEnter the password. DomainEnter the domain name.

NOTE: The user name, password, and domain name fields are optional. If you leave any of these fields blank,

interactive login is required and users must enter the information at the login time.

6. Click Options tab, and use the following guidelines:

a. WallpaperWhen selected, disables the desktop wallpaper. b. Menu / Window animationWhen selected, disables the menu or window animation. c. ThemeWhen selected, disables the desktop themes. d. Show content when draggingBy default, when you grab a Window by the title bar and move it around, the contents

of the window will move with it. Select this to disable this content view so that only the outline of the window moves when dragging it, until you drop the window. This option can be beneficial, as it uses less processing power.

e. Font smoothingConverts vector text to bitmap for better display. f. Auto-connect to local devicesSelect any options (Printers, Serials, USB, Smart Cards, and Disks) to have the thin

client automatically connect to the devices.

144 Configuring the connection brokers

also disables the Optimize for low speed link option and the Desktop Experience options by default. l. Mouse queue timerSpecifies the default queue timer of a mouse event in an ICA or RDP session (in 1/100 of a

second). It can be used to adjust the bandwidth of a network.

7. Click OK to save the settings.

Switch between RDP session and ThinOS client desktop

After you start RDP sessions with the Default on screen x option, and you want to switch back to the ThinOS client desktop using Ctrl + Alt + Down key combinations, the design is as follows: Scenario 1: When the mouse cursor is located in an RDP sessionIn this scenario, if you press Ctrl + Alt + Down and

select the user to log in to ThinOS, only the session with the mouse cursor is minimized and ThinOS desktop is displayed on the screen. Other RDP sessions remain unchanged.

Scenario 2: When you start an RDP session on the primary display with Default on screen xIn this scenario, ensure that the RDP session on primary display has the mouse cursor. To switch back to the ThinOS desktop screen, press Ctrl + Alt +Down and select the user to log in to ThinOS.

Scenario 3: When you press Ctrl + Alt + Down and select the System Information windowIn the scenario, the window is displayed on the screen irrespective of the cursor position.

Scenario 4: When you want to display the Connect Manager windowIn this scenario, you must minimize the RDP session and open the ThinOS client desktop screen where the Connect Manager is located. Press Ctrl + Alt + Down and select Connect Manager.

Secure RDP

The default behavior does not allow connection to the server when the ThinOS RDP client fails to verify the server certificate. A security message is displayed indicating the failure. The following are the user INI parameters that can be used: securitymode=higha security message is displayed and the user is not allowed to connect to RDP. securitymode=Warninga security message is displayed but the user is allowed to connect to RDP. securitymode=Lowthe user is allowed to connect to RDP and no security message is displayed.

Features of RDP protocol

Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a network communications protocol developed by Microsoft that enables you to remotely access virtual desktops and applications. This section describes the functionality of ThinOS over RDP protocol.

H.264 logs and H.264-AVC444 logs are hidden and not displayed in the Event Log tab.

Known issues

In Mirror mode with active session, when you change the resolution from 2048 x 1280 to greater than 2048 x 1280, the connected RDP session (Windows 8/ Windows 2012 R2) is closed forcibly and an error messageRDP: The server-side graphics subsystem is in an error state and unable to continue graphics encoding is displayed. This is because the session is not reconnected in Mirror mode after resolution is changed that resulted in H.264 codec exceeding its supported resolution.

WorkaroundYou must manually reconnect the session after the resolution is changed.

In an RDP session with VOR enabled by default (Windows 8.1 x86), you connect to a session with full screen, and span more than four 4K monitors. In this scenario, if you play a video, the session may be disconnected automatically with an error log RDP: The server-side graphics subsystem is in an error state and unable to continue graphics encoding. This is because VOR /x-264 requires more resources, such as RAM, than the server resources.

WorkaroundYou can reduce the number of monitors or lower the resolutions or switch to other 64-bit operating system with more RAM.

Configuring H.264 AVC444 in RDP 10 session

Prerequisites: Thin client must run on ThinOS version 8.5 or later. Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 must be created in Microsoft RDS 2016 broker or in the latest VMware View broker.

NOTE:

H.264-AVC444 is also used in Windows 8.1 with RemoteFX GPU configured.

To configure the H.264 AVC444 in an RDP 10 session:

1. In the Windows session host, run gpedit.msc.

2. Open the Local Group Policy Editor.

3. Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Remote Session Environment, and enable the following policies:

Prioritize H.264/AVC 444 Graphics mode for Remote Desktop connections Configure H.264/AVC hardware encoding for Remote Desktop connections

4. Open cmd.exe and run gpupdate /force, or restart the server.

VOR codec in RDP session

When you are playing video in an RDP sessionWindows 8.1, Windows 2012 R2, Windows 10, and Windows 2016VOR codec is used. The following logs are displayed in the Event Log tab.

Configuring the connection brokers 147

Figure 25. Event log tab

NOTE:

Dependence 1RDP GFX status, H.264, and VOR work only when GFX is enabled.

Dependence 2VOR is dynamic. So the enablement/disablement of VOR dynamically changes during the change in the

video resolution (enlarge/shrink).

Dependence 3H.264 enablement is decided at the beginning of connection, depending on the maximum resolution

available for the session.

If H.264-AVC444 is enabled, VOR is not used in Microsoft broker 2016, and Windows 10/2016 sessions without the RemoteFX GPU. If you disable H.264-AVC444, VOR is used.

In RDP session (RDP 8.1 and later), VOR, H.264, and H.264-AVC444 are enabled by default. To disable these parameters, use the INI parameter SessionConfig-RDP EnalbeGFX=yes EnableVOR=no EnableRDPh264=no.

When you connect to an RDP session in Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 with RemoteFX GPU adapter, H.264-AVC444 is used irrespective of the H.264-AVC444 group policy configurations. If you disable the H.264 feature by using the INI parameter, the VOR codec is used in RDP sessions. However, graphic-related issues are observed in RDP sessions. From ThinOS version 8.6, the VOR codec is not used when you disable H.264 using the INI parameter.

TS Gateway in Microsoft Broker

Configuring the camera settings

Use the Camera tab to interface with cameras that are locally connected to the thin client (USB) and supported by a UVC driver. When using the HDX RealTime webcam feature of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, you can control options such as maximum resolution and frames per second (10 FPS is recommended).

By default, the format of USB camera is set to RAW.

NOTE:

You can optimize performance and modify the frame rate per second, if the Optimize for CPU check box is not selected

supported values include 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, and 1/6 directly from the thin client (if the webcam supports Universal

Video Driver).

Also, this feature is CPU intensive and is recommended for high performance products.

For Wyse 5470 and Wyse 5470 All-in-One thin clients, it is recommended to use a camera such as Logitech C930e that supports hardware encoding. The integrated camera on the thin clients does not support hardware encoding, so the performance is limited as follows:

On the Wyse 5470 Thin Client with RTME-enabled, the camera performance on Skype for Business is limited to a maximum resolution of 640 x 360 using HD configuration, 960 x 540 using Full HD configuration, and 1280 x 720 if Logitech C930e camera is used.

On the Wyse 5470 All-in-One Thin Client with RTME-enabled, the camera performance on Skype for Business is limited to a maximum resolution of 960 x 540, and 1280 x 720 if Logitech C930e camera is used.

176 Configuring local settings

On a JVDI-enabled client, the CPU usage of the integrated camera is 10% higher than the CPU usage of Logitech C930e camera. The difference in the CPU usage is observed while video calling on Cisco Jabber in a ICA session.

Configuring the touch screen settings

Use the Touch Screen tab to configure touch screens that are connected to the thin client. The tab is available (not grayed out) when the thin client detects that a touch screen is attached through a USB port or a serial port, and the setup or calibration has not been performed. The Touch Setup window prompts you to touch two circles on the screen to make the necessary calibration adjustment. The adjusted calibrated values are saved in the local terminal NVRAM until the system is reset to factory default, or another type of touch monitor is connected.

NOTE: From ThinOS version 8.5, the ELO touch screen does not work in certain scenarios. For more information, see the

latest Dell Wyse ThinOS Release Notes.

Touch screen is an optional configuration for the Wyse 5470 Thin Client. It is recommended to use the default 1920 x 1080 resolution while using touch screen. If you use a custom resolution, the touch screen does not calibrate accurately.

Simplified Certificate Enrollment Protocol

Simplified Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP) was used in a closed network where all end-points are trusted. The goal of SCEP is to support the secure issuance of certificates to network devices in a scalable manner. Within an enterprise domain, it enables network devices that do not run with domain credentials to enroll for certificates from a Certification Authority (CA).

At the end of the transactions that are defined in this protocol, the network device has a private key and associated certificate that is issued by a CA. Applications on the device may use the key and its associated certificate to interact with other entities on the network. The most common usage of this certificate on a network device is to authenticate the device in an IPSec session.

ThinOS is treated as a network device. The functionality of ThinOS SCEP includes manual certificate request, automatic certificate request, and automatic renewal of certificate.

StartExecutes the ping command. If the host is operational and on the network, it responds to the echo request. By default, echo requests are sent until interrupted by clicking Stop.

StopTerminates the ping request and leaves the Ping dialog box open, so you can read the summary posted in the data area.

NOTE:

Performing diagnostics 205

Ping sends an echo request to a network host. The host parameter is either a valid hostname or an IP address. If the

host is operational and on the network, it responds to the echo request. Ping sends one echo request per second and

calculates round trip times and packet loss statistics. It displays a brief summary upon completion of the calculation.

The ping utility can be used to:

Determine the status of the network and various foreign hosts.

Track and isolate hardware and software problems.

Test, measure, and manage networks.

Determine the IP address of a host if only the hostname is known.

NOTE: Not all network equipment responds to ping packets, as this is a common mechanism that is used in denial-

of-service attacks. Lack of response does not necessarily indicate that the target of the ping is unusable for other

purposes.

6. Click the Trace Route tab, and use the following guidelines to start the tracert diagnostic utility and display response messages.

BIOS management on ThinOS This appendix describes the BIOS management on the ThinOS devices with Wyse BIOS (CMOS), or Dell Standard BIOS.

To make the BIOS management consistent between Wyse BIOS and Dell BIOS, an INI parameter Device=Cmos is introduced for Wyse BIOS, and Device=DellCmos for Dell Standard BIOS.

If the password is configured for the BIOS configuration, then you must enter an appropriate password to update any settings. For example, the INI parameter to update settings must be followed with CurrentPassword={}. This is mandatory for Dell BIOS.

After you update BIOS on Wyse 5010 thin client, Wyse 5040 thin client, and Wyse 7010 thin client, Wyse 5060 thin client, the BIOS management may not be possible until you manually enter and exit the BIOS configuration menu. This is due to a CMOS mismatch. To resolve this issue:

Boot unit and press Delete during boot to enter the BIOS menu. Enter the BIOS password. Press F10 to save BIOS configurations and resolve the CMOS mismatch.

Wyse 5010 thin client with ThinOS (D10D) is considered here as an example. The following instructions are for Wyse 5010 thin client with ThinOS (D10D) BIOS version 3.0D. However, the instructions are also applicable for other supported hardware platforms and BIOS versions.

1. To prepare a reference drive containing BIOS version 3.0D or later:

a. The reference device is a golden image you use to distribute to other thin client devices. To use reference drive, enter the BIOS setup utility. Press the Delete key, enter the password Fireport (case sensitive) and press Enter. Configure the CMOS settings, includes Auto Power, Boot Order, P-key setting, and BIOS Password.

b. Save your CMOS settings. c. Restart your thin client device.

2. To create a CMOS INI file in a file server:

210 BIOS management on ThinOS

a. In the file server, create a cmos.ini file and place it in the wnos directory/folder under the file server ini directory. Make sure that wnos directory on the file server has upload privilege.

b. Type the following name in the cmos.ini file: Device=cmos Action=extract.

3. To reboot the reference device to the file server containing the CMOS INI file:

a. On the thin client you want to use as a reference device, start the thin client. b. In the Login dialog box, enter the credentials you need to access the cmos.ini file. c. After login, to view the Event Log tab, do the following:

Click System Information icon > System Information dialog box > Event Log tab.

You can open the event log to view a CMOS: extract to D10D_cmos.3.0D event. This means that the CMOS central management file (containing the CMOS settings from your Reference Device) is now copied to the wnos directory/ folder on the file server. As this is a D10D BIOS version 3.0D, the CMOS central management file name would be D10D_cmos.3.0D. These CMOS settings are now ready for distribution to other thin clients.

4. To prepare the file server containing the CMOS INI file for distribution:

a. Write the following line in the cmos.ini file for distribution on your file server: Device=cmos Action=restore. b. Save the file.

5. Log in to all target device to the file server containing the CMOS INI file:

a. Start the thin client devices for which you want to distribute the reference device CMOS settings. b. To access the cmos.ini. file, enter your credentials in the Login dialog box. c. To open Event Log, click System Information icon. In the System Information dialog box, select Event Log tab.

You can view the CMOS: restore from D10D_cmos.3.0D event. This means that your central management file containing the CMOS settings from your reference device is copied to the targeted thin client devices.

NOTE: After you target your thin client devices contain the CMOS settings you want, do not log in to the file server

containing the cmos.ini file with the restore action (unless you want to redo the restore process). Administrators can

remove the cmos.ini file to prevent from unwanted CMOS overwrites.

NOTE: It is recommended to initially complete these procedures on a file server designated to test the success of

your CMOS central management settings/process. While the central configuration method can be used to enforce your

CMOS settings in a production environment, be aware that any thin client device that logs in to the file server that

contains the cmos.ini and its extract and restore commands are subject to those commands (CMOS overwrites).

For more information about the INI parameter Device=cmos, see Dell Wyse ThinOS INI Reference Guide.

CMOS local management and extracting CMOS settings to a USB key for distribution CMOS local management allows ThinOS administrators to easily manage CMOS settings for small deployments of thin clients using USB key distribution methods. Wyse 5010 thin client with ThinOS (D10D) is considered here as an example. The following instructions are for Wyse 5010 thin client with ThinOS (D10D) BIOS version 3.0D.

1. To prepare a reference drive containing BIOS version 3.0D or later:

a. The reference device is a golden image you use to distribute to other thin client devices. To use reference drive, enter the BIOS setup utility. Press the Delete key, enter the password Fireport (case sensitive) and press Enter. Configure the CMOS settings, includes Auto Power, Boot Order, P-key setting, and BIOS Password.

b. Save your CMOS settings. c. Restart your thin client device.

2. To extract the CMOS settings to a USB key.

a. Attach a formatted USB key on the thin client device which you want to use as a reference device. For example, to format on Windows 7, attach the USB Key, right-click the USB key, select format, click Restore device defaults, select Quick Format, and then click Start.

b. Use the extract CMOS to USB GUI feature of ThinOS to extract the CMOS settings to the USB key. On Classic Desktop, right-click the desktop and select Extract CMOS to USB. On Wyse Zero desktop, in the General tab of the System Tools dialog box (System Settings icon > System Tools > General tab), click Extract CMOS to USB.

c. Once extraction successful you see a pop-up message: CMOS: extract to D10D_cmos.3.0D, properly eject and detach the USB key. The CMOS settings on the USB key are now ready for distribution to other thin clients

3. To restore the CMOS settings to your target devices:

BIOS management on ThinOS 211

a. On all of the target thin clients that you want to distribute the reference device CMOS settings, start the thin client. b. Use the Restore CMOS from USB GUI feature of ThinOS to write the CMOS settings from the USB Key to the target

thin client: For Classic Desktop, Right-click the desktop and select Restore CMOS from USB. For Wyse Zero Desktop, in the General tab of the System Tools dialog box ( System Settings icon > System Tools > General tab), click Restore CMOS from USB.

c. Once restoration successful the following message is displayed: CMOS: restore from D10D_cmos.3.0D properly eject and detach the USB Key. The CMOS settings on the USB Key are now written to your target thin client.

212 BIOS management on ThinOS

Security A new global security policy has been defined for ThinOS and this policy is applied to all secure connections (https/SSL connections) with a few exceptions.

PurposeTo improve the security level by default and add the global configuration. This security policy integrates security setting for each application.

Table 56. INI parameter

INI parameter Description

SecurityPolicy={full | warning (default) | low} SecuredNetworkProtocol={yes | no (default)} TLSMinVersion={1 (default), 2, 3} TLSMaxVesion={1, 2, 3 (default)}

FullSSL connection must verify the server certificate. If it is untrusted, cancel the connection.

Warning (default)SSL connection must verify the server certificate. If it is untrusted, you can continue or cancel the connection.

LowServer certificate is not verified. This value is set for a few applications.

After firmware is updated, the default value is set to warning for all applicable applications immediately.

There is an exception for file server and WDM.

The old ini SecurityLevel | SecureProtocol from Privilege segment is deleted.

All applications running on the default SSL security mode follow the global mode. In the global mode, the default value is Warning. The affected applications include VMware View, Amazon WorkSpaces (AWS), file server, WDM Service, Caradigm Server, and OneSign Server.

For more information about the security mode INI parameters, see Dell Wyse ThinOS INI Guide.

The following are the exceptions:

File server and WDM in factory reset stateBefore you load any INI parameter, the SSL security mode is set to Low, and after loading the INI parameter, the value is changed to follow the global mode value. For example, the default value is set to warning, if the value is not changed by the INI parameter.

System with previous settings (default value is set to Low) follows the global mode after the unit is upgraded. For example, the default value is set to Warning, if the value is not changed by the INI parameter.

VMware View and AWS brokers include own security settings (GUI and INI). From ThinOS 8.3 release, an additional option is added to follow the global mode as its new default value. The security mode GUI context is updated for better understanding.

Wyse Management Suite, Microsoft RDS broker, Citrix broker, and SecureMatrix are always Full.

Firmware signature Firmware signature feature was introduced in ThinOS 8.3.1 for better firmware security. From ThinOS 8.4 release, firmware signature verification is added to enhance firmware security.

Salient features

By default, signature verification is required on firmware downgrade/upgrade process. Provision to downgrade from 8.4 firmware to 8.3 firmware without signature. For example, earlier to ThinOS 8.3.1 release,

the firmware downgrade is prohibited by default. New INI parameter verifysignature=no is introduced to enable user downgrade firmware. For example:

autoload=101 verifysignature=no. For more information about using INI parameters, refer to the latest Dell Wyse ThinOS INI Reference guide.

Security 213

The following scenarios are allowed without need of using INI parameters:

Upgrade from 8.3.x firmware to 8.4 firmware. Upgrade or Downgrade between 8.3.x and/or earlier firmware. Upgrade or Downgrade between 8.4 and later firmware.

Transport Layer Security Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that provides communication security between the client and server applications.

Upgrade to Transport Layer Security (TLS) In the ThinOS 8.2 release, the TLS is upgraded from version 1.0 to version 1.2. By default, the ThinOS client uses TLS 1.2 to secure any communication protocols, connections, or applications upon SSL/ TLS in general and falls back to the previous SSL/ TLS version when negotiating with the server.

214 Security

Troubleshooting This section describes some basic troubleshooting that you can implement when you experience any problem.

ThinOS devices allow secure SSL connectionsSecurityMode=Fullonly after verifying the certificates. In the present scenario, the devices enforce the warning policy after you define a server using a valid IP address.

The following are the workarounds to avoid the SSL connection issue:

Ensure that the device has a valid certificate and the correct time is selected on the device. Define the server by name instead of IP address. Set the value of the global security policy to high. Use the following INI parameter to enforce the high security mode:

SecurityPolicy=high TLSCheckCN=Yes Blast connectionIf there is a launch issue, check the remote desktop status and network status; reboot unit few times and

the desktop connects successfully.

Configuring ThinPrint

Printing to local USB or parallel printers You can print to locally attached printers through USB or parallel ports.

NOTE: Microsoft Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH), Microsoft Terminal Services, and Citrix XenApp each have their

own printing policies that must be configured properly to allow client side printing. For details on configuring printing in

these environments, see your vendor instructions.

Using the Printer Setup dialog box for local USB or parallel printers

In this example you have an HP LaserJet 4000 attached to a thin client USB port. When connecting USB printers, some printers fill out the Printer Name and Printer Identification fields for you.

To Configure the Printer to print locally attached printers through USB or Parallel ports.

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Printer. The Printer Setup dialog box is displayed.

2. Click Printer Setup, and use the following guidelines for the Ports tab when printing to a local USB printer:

a. Select Port Select LPT1 or LPT2 port. b. Printer Name Enter name you want displayed in your list of printers, most USB direct-connected printers report/fill

in their printer name automatically. c. Printer Identification Enter the type or model of the printer in the exact text of the Windows printer driver name

including capitalizations and spaces most USB direct-connected printers report/fill in their printer identifications automatically. In our example case, enter HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL.

d. Printer Class You can leave this as default. e. Enable the printer device Must be selected to enable the directly connected printer enables the device so it

displays on the remote host.

3. Click OK to save the settings.

Using INI parameters for local USB or parallel printers

Configuring local printing using ThinOS INI parameters is simple and an easy way to configure a printer for all clients in your environment assuming every printer is the same.

Your INI parameters will look something like the following:

Printer=LPT1 \ Name="HP LaserJet 4000" \ PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL" \ Enabled=yes

NOTE: The PrinterID is the exact text of the Windows printer driver name, so if a printer driver is named HP LaserJet 4000

Series PCL in Windows, then it must be exactly the same in the PrinterID field in the INI parameters including capitalizations

and spaces.

Printing to non-Windows network printers ThinOS can print to non-Windows network printers as long as the printers can accept LPR print requests. Most workgroup printers and large network printers have this capability be sure to check with your vendor that the printer can accept Line Printer Request print requests.

Once your thin client is configured to print to an LPR capable printer, the client will then redirect this printer through an RDP or ICA connection to your back end infrastructure. In this way the client will connect to your back end infrastructure and this network printer will appear as a client local printer.

Using the Printer Setup dialog box for non-Windows network printers

To configure the Printer Setup dialog box for Non-Windows Network Printers (LPD).

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup, and then click Printer.

The Printer Setup dialog box is displayed.

In this example we have an HP LaserJet 4200n attached to a thin client through LPR.

2. Click the LPDs tab and use the following guidelines when printing to a non-Windows network printer:

a. Select LPD Select LPD1 or LPD2 port. b. Printer Name Enter name you want displayed in your list of printers. c. Printer Identification Enter the type or model of the printer in the exact text of the Windows printer driver name

including capitalizations and spaces.

In this example, enter HP LaserJet 4200n PCL6.

d. LPD Hosts The DNS or WINS name of the server for the network printer. An IP address of the printer on the network can also be entered as we have used in our case example.

NOTE: If the printer is attached to another thin client on your network, the entry in the LPD Hosts box is the name

or address of that thin client.

e. LPD Queue Name An LPD host maintains a named queue for each supported printer. Enter the name of the queue associated with the printer used. This name can be different for each vendor. This field is required and must be correct so that the network printer accepts incoming print jobs properly. In our case example, auto can be used for HP LaserJet 4200n PCL6 as per documentation found on the HP website.

NOTE: If the printer is attached to another thin client on your network, the LPD Queue Name must match the

content of the Printer Name box on the thin client with the printer attached.

f. Printer Class You can leave this as default. g. Enable the printer device Must be selected to enable the printer enables the device so it displays on the remote

host.

Examples of common printing configurations 217

Using INI parameters for non-Windows network printers

Configuring network printing using ThinOS INI parameters is simple and an easy way to configure a printer for all clients in your environment assuming every printer is the same.

Your INI parameters will look something like the following:

Printer=LPD1 \ LocalName="HP LaserJet 4200n" \ Host=10.10.10.1 \ Queue=auto \ PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4200 PCL6" \ Enabled=yes

NOTE: The PrinterID is the exact text of the Windows printer driver name, so if a printer driver is named HP LaserJet

4200n PCL6 in Windows, then it must be exactly the same in the PrinterID field in the INI parameters including

capitalizations and spaces.

Printing to Windows network printers ThinOS can print to printers that are shared by Microsoft print servers. There are some configuration requirements that need to be considered when configuring SMB printing from ThinOS which may require changes to your thin client setup.

Since connecting to a Microsoft Windows Print Server requires domain credentials, you must provide the credentials to ThinOS either on demand as the printer is used or by administrator setup providing credentials cached from the Dell Wyse login screen, see Example 3: Defining an SMB Printer to Use User Credentials Cached by ThinOS (Advanced) in Using INI parameters for Windows network printers (SMB). This section will discuss both methods.

Using the Printer Setup dialog box for Windows network printers

Configuring an SMB printer is this manner forces users to enter their credentials before each printing; this means they will be temporarily pulled out of their remote session to enter their credentials (this can be avoided by using an INI file as discussed in Using INI parameters for Windows network printers.

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Printer. The Printer setup dialog box is displayed.

2. Click the SMBS tab, and use the following guidelines when printing to a Windows network printer:

NOTE: The printer name shared by Windows must not contain any spaces or ThinOS will not be able to use it.

a. Select SMB Select the SMB you want from the list. b. \\Host\Printer Click the browse folder icon next to the box to browse your Microsoft Networks and make the

printer selection you want from the network printers available the DNS name or IP address of the Windows print server on the network. After entering required domain credentials, the Printer Setup dialog box will display

c. Printer Name Enter name you want displayed in your list of printers. d. Printer Identification Enter the type or model of the printer in the exact text of the Windows printer driver name

including capitalizations and spaces.

In example case, enter HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL.

e. Printer Class You can leave this as default. f. Enable the printer device Must be selected to enable the printer.

It enables the device so it displays on the remote host.

Click Test Print and you will be prompted to enter your Windows credentials, these credentials will be used to access the printer share. This is also the same dialog box that will display for a user when they attempt to print to this printer.

218 Examples of common printing configurations

Using INI parameters for Windows network printers

Configuring SMB printing using ThinOS INI parameters is simple and an easy way to configure printers shared by a Windows server for all clients in your environment. The primary advantage of configuring SMB printing using ThinOS INI parameters is that you can pre-define the domain account to use to authenticate the printer. The following examples discuss how the credentials can be supplied.

1. Defining an SMB printer with generic user credentials in plain text

Printer=SMB1 \ LocalName="Demo SMB Printer" \ Host=\\dp-dc-ftp \ Name="TechSupportPrinter" \ PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL" \ Enabled=yes \ Username=Username1 \ Password=Password \ Domain=contoso

2. Defining an SMB printer with generic user credentials that are encrypted

Printer=SMB1 \ LocalName="Demo SMB Printer" \ Host=\\dp-dc-ftp \ Name="TechSupportPrinter" \ PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL" \ Enabled=yes \ Username-enc=PACGOGDBPKDOPGDGKC \ Password-enc=PFDBOHDBODCJPODP \ Domain=contoso

NOTE: You can use the Configuration Generator (ConfGen) tool to create INI parameters for ThinOS. ConfGen can be

downloaded from technicalhelp.de.. This is a non-supported tool that is linked solely for the purpose of this example.

3. Defining an SMB printer to use user credentials cached by ThinOS (advanced)

NOTE: This method requires that the user log in to ThinOS so that the credentials can be cached for later use. The example

INI section provided below provides the minimum requirements you need.

Signon=NTLM

Connect=RDP \ Host=1.2.3.4 \ Username=$UN \ Password=$PW \ Domain=$DN \ AutoConnect=1

Printer=SMB1 \ LocalName="Demo SMB Printer" \ Host=\\dp-dc-ftp \ Name="TechSupportPrinter" \ PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4100 Series PCL" \ Enabled=yes \ Username=$UN \ Password=$PW \ Domain=$DN

Using your thin client as a print server ThinOS thin client can be configured as a basic network print server, to share local printers with other thin clients.

Examples of common printing configurations 219

Using the Printer Setup dialog box for configuring LPD services

From the Classic desktop mode only, a thin client can be configured to provide LPD (Line Printer Daemon) services making the thin client a printer server on the network. Set up the thin client that is to provide LPD print services as follows:

To configure LPD services using the Printer Setup dialog box.

1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Network Setup to open the Network Setup dialog box.

2. Enter a static IP address for the thin client.

3. From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Printer to open the Printer Setup dialog box and select any of the listed ports.

4. Select a LPT.

5. Name the printer in the Printer Name box.

6. Enter the Printer Identification type or model of the printer in the exact text of the Windows printer driver name including capitalizations and spaces. In our example case, enter HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL.

7. You can leave Printer Class as default.

8. Select Enable the Printer Device.

9. Select Enable LPD service for the printer.

10. For setting up Windows 2003/2008 servers, see Setting up Windows 2003/2008 servers.

Setting up Windows servers

To configure setting the Windows 2003/2008 servers

1. Navigate to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services and ensure the Microsoft TCP/IP Printing service is installed. If it is not, install it using the Microsoft installation instructions.

2. Add the thin client as the LPD printer by completing the following:

a. Navigate to Control Panel > Printers > Add Printers > Local Printer > Create a new port and select LPR PORT.

NOTE: If you do not see LPR Port, ensure that the Microsoft TCP/IP Printing service is installed correctly.

b. Type the thin client IP address or DNS name in the Name or address of host providing LPD box. c. Type the printer name assigned in Using the Printer Setup dialog box for configuring LPD services in the Name of

printer on that machine box. d. Click OK, and then click NEXT.

3. After you have selected the printer, you can perform your normal printer setup for the application server. For example, select the manufacturer printer type and printer name.

Using INI parameters for configuring LPD services

Configuring LPD printing using ThinOS INI parameters is simple and an easy way to configure a ThinOS thin client to be a basic network print server, to share local printers with other thin clients.

Your INI parameters will look something like the following:

Printer=LPT1 \ Name="HP LaserJet 4000" \ PrinterID="HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL" \ Enabled=yes \ EnableLPD=yes

NOTE: The PrinterID is the exact text of the Windows printer driver name, so if a printer driver is named HP LaserJet 4000

Series PCL in Windows, then it must be exactly the same in the PrinterID field in the INI parameters including capitalizations

and spaces.

Configuring ThinPrint No ThinPrint specific configuration is available on the thin clients. Thus to be able to use ThinPrint, users must first set up their printers according to the user documentation, and then configure ThinPrint on the thin client using the Printer Setup dialog box.

220 Examples of common printing configurations

To configure the ThinPrint, use the following guidelines: Use the Printer Identification field to enter a printer class (you can change the printer name as needed).

Printer IDs are assigned (depending on the physical port) as follows: COM1 = 1

COM2 = 2

LPT1 = 3 USB printers are detected automatically on LPT1

LPT2 = 4

LPD0 = 5 The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer Identification as class

LPD1 = 6 The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer Identification as class

LPD2 = 7 The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer Identification as class

LPD3 = 8 The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer Identification as class

SMB1 = 9 In the form \\host\printershare

SMB2 = 10

SMB3 = 11

SMB4 = 12

To install the relevant ThinPrint product on the server use the following guidelines: Printer Objects Created Manually by the Administrator After you install.print Engine, create a printer object on the

server to use the native driver and ThinPort as a printer port. You can use any protocol (TCP, RDP or ICA) because ThinOS has.print clients for all of the protocols. The printer object needs to observe ThinPrint naming conventions, for example, HPLJ5#_:2, in which case print jobs are sent to the local printer that has ID number .2 by referring to.print client port ID. If no ID number is present, the.print client sends the print job to the printer set as current.

Printer Objects Created Automatically by ThinPrint AutoConnect When using ThinPrint AutoConnect, the thin client identifies with the thin client ID number 84 and thus is recognized as a thin client without a local spooler. You can also set up a template on the server that uses a native driver example, HPLJ5) and ThinPort, and then name this template as you want in the form _#AnyName.

You can then make sure that the rules on ThinPrint Autoconnect [1] have been set to assign the desired local printers to use this server template. The assigned printer will then be shown in the user session using the HPLJ5 driver and ThinPort; it is named automatically according to ThinPrint naming convention with the printer name from the client side included. Alternatively, you can also define a template name according to the client printer name (replace.AnyName. with printer name 4. and 5. above for example, _#HP Laserjet 5 so that the local printer object.HP Laserjet 5. is mapped to this template without any rules defined on the ThinPrint Autoconnect.

Examples of common printing configurations 221

Important notes VNC RFB version upgradeSince ThinOS 8.0_214, the VNC RFB version has been upgraded to 3.8. This version upgrade
