    Hi All,
    I have a set of about 25 wyse S10 using wtos 5.2. We dont use wnos.ini or any centralized profiles for these units.
    A user has asked if we can enable locking of the desktops.

    I see that if i right-click on the desktop i get “lock terminal” grayed out.
    I also see that i can configure in wnos.ini a LockTerminal setting…. though i’d like to not use wnos.ini files…

    do you know how i can configure this individual user’s machine so that he can lock the terminal using the right-click menu?

    Cheers,

    Lock Terminal is only available when the user is actually logging in to the client. For example, if the user is logging in to a Citrix environment.
    Then the user could enable the locking via Ctrl+Alt+Arrow left.

    hey ConfGen thanks for your reply.
    not quite sure i understand “Lock Terminal is only available when the user is actually logging in to the client”.. – does this mean the user can only lock the terminal when _from_ the thinclient they log onto another environment – e.g. citrix/terminal-services?

    my users are logging into a microsoft windows terminal services environment from their terminals.. can i lock the terminals in the same way as the citrix terminals?

    I guess you are just opening a simple RDP connection from the client to the TS, right?
    This is NOT logging in. You would have to log in to a “brokered” environment like XA, XD, VIEW, MS BROKER, etc…
