for the record, this workaround does work with the 6.x firmware. i created the wyseftpfbc4tc dns record as a cname that points to my real ftp server. then i created a /wnos/wnos.ini file with the following line:

DHCPVendorID=”wyse-1000″ ParseVendorInfo=yes

with factory default settings, the thin client grabs this very minimal wnos.ini during its first boot (enabling the ParseVendorInfo option). on subsequent reboots, everything works as expected.

this hack is not ideal (i still insist that the ParseVendorInfo option should be enabled by default), but now i only have to instruct users to reboot their new thin clients twice. works for me. thanks for the help guys.
