    The disclaimer from the start…i’m brand new to the whole thin client thing so i’m sorry for all the questions.

    I bought a Wyse 3125SE for cheap of ebay and have decided i’m going to use it with a touchscreen as a small web kiosk at home…I have the system directly booting into IE in kiosk mode and that bit works OK. I have a few problems however;

    No access to my computer/documents – I presume this has been locked down and specified in the copy of CE installed on the device. I have looked on the Wyse site and there is 44139Wye3125.exe listed in the downloads…is this a new copy of CE firmware? I can’t see anywhere listed what it actually is. If it is a new copy I will try my best to FTP upgrade. The CE version I have at the minute has a start menu with control panel and programs, only programs installed are IE & RDP connection.

    I have CE (both & CE – drivers for my touchscreen (which is installed in my Lilliput display LCD) but i’m stuck how to get this onto the 3125? I already have the ELO drivers installed but they are not compatible with my interface. Whenever I see upgrading firmware options it must be done over FTP and have the params.ini and bin file, neither I see included…is there any way to get these drivers onto the 3125?

    Any help very much appreciated!

    Hi and welcome to this forum.

    I will try to answer your questions but you had quite a lot hidden in your thread 😉
    – Computer/Documents is not available at all on a CE Thin Client. This would allow a user to get access to the OS which should always be prevented.
    – 576Wye74_3125_FTP.exe is the latest firmware for the 3125. You can find it under Downloads-Retired-3125SE. Check on your unit under Control Panel-System for the build version you have installed. If it is higher than 576 you should not upgrade.
    – There is no way for you to add your own drivers to the system. This would need help from Wyse. So either you have a compatible touch screen model or you pay for the integration of your drivers. This is standard to all Thin Client vendor and not specific to Wyse by the way.

    Confgen…many thanks for your reply, no 1 I expected to be honest…i’ll give the update a shot but i’m not surprised at no 3 either, I did expect it again to be truthful, i’ve either got to buy something xpe based or get the money for an ELO touch screen, back to the drawing board I think for now!
