    We recently purchased a C50LE and need help getting the Cisco VPN client addon package installed. I’ve read the Admin documentation found on Wyse’s Knowledgebase. I’ve also downloaded both the 11.0.121 and the 11.1.015 addon zip files. The older one (11.0.121) had a ciscovpn-0.5.1-55.6+1.i586.rpm file in it.

    I setup a FTP server (via WAN, not LAN) and created a wyse/addons folder. I put the cisco rpm file and a directory file listing the name of the cisco rpm in the addons folder. I also created a specific username that gets into the folder prior to the wyse folder so it sees the wyse directory and then subsequent folders. I tested connectivity and DNS by using the Mozilla browser to navigate to the FTP site. But when I configure the Novell Add-on Manager section of the terminal with the correct FTP information it keeps giving me an error stating that it “Failed to download available addon list.”

    I had a Wyse X50L for a few days as a demo and attempted the same thing to no avail. I also tried to install the RPM by copying it to a flash drive, loading it on the X50L, and then running the rpm -i command. That threw dependency errors so I figured that wasn’t the correct way to install it.

    We use P20’s in-house and they work great. Turn them on, put in the VMware View server, and that’s it. These C50LE’s are going to be used at our sales guy’s home where we don’t want to have to put a hardware firewall in. That being said we’re not going to have them boot with specific DHCP options, nor will they receive INI upgrade files via some internal FTP server. Once they are setup with the VPN client and the View icon that’s it – we deploy it and we’re done.

    Please let me know the easiest way to get this RPM installed. If there is a way to bypass the FTP and just install it locally that would be great as that is the only app that needs to get installed on these C50LE’s.

    If anyone needs the FTP username/password though I’d be happy to give it to you. I just don’t want to post it here.

    Thanks,


    Mike

    I would start with the FTP server logfile to check which folder/file the C50 tries to look up.

    There is nothing in the log file. Not even a connection attempt. As soon as I save the settings it shows “Refreshing list of add-ons…” and then, after some time, gives the “Failed to download available addon list.” error. I actually switched from a public FTP server on the WAN to using FileZilla on a PC on the LAN. Same thing happens although the “Failed to download available addon list” error take a lot longer to appear when trying to connect to the LAN FTP.

    This is the exact same thing the X50L I had before did. Isn’t there some other way to get this RPM installed?

    Thanks,

    UPDATE: I fixed the issue with FTP. I rebooted it and then it started working. No idea why but that’s not really important.

    It started updating the addons and adding the cisco vpn rpm that I wanted and it crashed mid-way through. I tried everything to get it to continue but it was totally crashed. I rebooted it and now I get a “Error 15: File not found – Press any key to continue…”

    So it looks like I need to reload the OS. Any ideas of the best way to go about this? I can’t really set DHCP options so PXE might be out of the question.

    Thanks,

    Is that the same thing as the Wyse Simple Imager? If not do you happen to know where I can download the USB Imager? I don’t see it as an available download on Wyse’s web site.

    Thanks for your help.
