    Hi,
    My first post on this forum, so apologies if I have not followed any particular protocol.

    I have been doing some research on the Blazer OS (version 5) and was told it is possible to connect to a CSG.

    I have a scenario where I have a number of Wyse 1200 LE Winterms that need to connect to a local PNLite server on the LAN and if possible connect to a CSG on a WAN as well.

    Does anyone know if this is possible, or have an suggestions?

    I have had a look at all the really useful documents on this site, and was really impressed with the Configuration Generator by Thomas Moellerbernd (now I don’t have to write an app to generate a wnos.ini file).

    Cheers

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Glad you like my humble little site! No format required to post here, the more that take part the better!

    Good new and mainly bad news for your question. The 1200LE does not have enough NOR space to support all of the Blazer 5 features, one of the features not in there is CSG. 🙁

    There was a network boot version for the 1200 LE floating around but I am not sure if this is continued. The net boot code was downloaded each boot of the terminal as it was to big to be stored locally.

    Long story short, you will need 1125’s or the S10 to support CSG,

    Cheers,
    -TT

    Hi TT,
    I wish I’d known about your site sooner, excellent reference site, well done 😀

    Thanks for your help, at least I know now and wont waste more time on it, although the network boot sounds interesting…any idea on where I can find it ❓

    My current work around has them accessing the CSG through their existing Citrix Server, which isn’t ideal, but works.

    I haven’t had much to do with the 1125 or S10, but people on your site seem to think they are pretty good…should I be using them instead ❓

    Not that I am unhappy with the 1200LE Winterms, they are an awesome little device that just work.

    I have experimented with using the embedded XP Winterms, which I like, they have certainly improved a lot since the early NT4 days.

    I am happy to post and will add your site news to my RSS Reader, maybe I can contribute something useful one day 🙂

    Cheers

    Matt

    I agree about the 1200’s, they are great!

    The S10 is the 1200 replacement as the 1200LE is at the End of Life, its the same OS but with a slightly bigger OS (1.4MB) and a few more features. If you plug one in your network it will user your current wnos.ini file.

    The netboot 1200 code from memory required the user to hold a key down on boot to load the code (it was in dev only). I think they relised the 1200 was so old Wyse dropped the project.

    XPe are very flexable but the large footprint makes them a hassle to update. I am going to post some more Rapport scripts for XPe soon to remotly configure time zone, wallpaper, screensavers etc so watch out for that.

    Feel free to contribute to the site, any information is welcome and I don’t want the site to be driven by just me,

    Cheers,
    -TT
