    I am new to using Wyse Terminals. I have an S10 sitting in front of me and here is my question.

    I have the RDP connection set up and it works very nicely. I need to know if there is a way to “lock down” the terminal so users cannot mess with the settings once they log out of their sessions.

    I dont want them to be able to get into the Wyse’s preferences, display, etc.

    Can someone explain how this is done?

    Thank you,
    Dory

    Hi Dory,

    With the Wyse Thin OS (the OS on the S10) you use a text file to configure the unit. Yes you can make some settings from the GUI for there are many more settings you can make from the text file management.

    You can either set the test file up to configure the settings and save them or better you have the units always point to the file and you can manage large numbers of devices very simply.

    Here is a link to an overview of setting up WTOS:

    And a sample configuration file:

    In the WTOS downloads section you can get more info and the great ConfGen – a tool to create these files for you!

    Good Luck and thanks for posting,

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    Have a look at the basic documnets above and once you get the idea of setting up the wnos.ini file you will need to create a connect statment like this:

    connect=rdp
    description=”Log in…”
    icon=default
    host=myserver
    fullscreen=1

    There are only two connect statements on WTOS, ICA and RDP – these connect statements create the “icons” in the connection manager and desktop of the terminal. It sounds confusing but is easy once you get the hang of it. You can also use the GUI but I do not like to set them up this way,

    Cheers,
    -TT

    Thank you for taking the time to explain this to me. the Powerpoint helps a LOT and so does the downloads.

    I’m sure you’ll be seeing me around as I muddle through this.

    😉
