    Hello,

    I am setting up a test View lab using the Wyse C50LE thin clients. I have most everything working and can establish a view connection manually using the Wyse Connection Manager. I have the FTP server setup and all the extra bits in the DHCP scope that I think I will need to make it all work. Here is the extra options in my DHCP scope:

    161 (192.168.11.12)
    162 (/$)
    184 (wyse)
    185 (wys3)

    When the wyse client boots my FTP log shows the Wyse user logging in then out immediately a couple times but no files are ever transfered. My ftp root directory for the wyse user looks like this:

    /
    /Wyse
    /Wyse/WLX
    /Wyse/wnos

    Inside the /Wyse/WLX directory, I have a file named “wlx.ini”. I used the configurator to make this file, and intend for it to automatically load the view login instead of the admin/admin or thinuser/thinuser login. Not sure if it will work or not, but here are its contents (comments removed to save space):

    Update.Mode=Both
    Privilege=High

    Keyboard.layouts=us

    DisplaySettings=MON1 rotate-normal DDC

    Timeserver=192.168.11.11
    Timeformat=”12-hour format”
    TimeZone=”US/Eastern” ManualOverride=1

    EthernetSpeed=Auto
    Autologin=No

    CONNECT=VMWARE_VIEWCLIENT
    Description=”RWL Connection”
    Host=viewconn1.rwl.local
    Port=443
    DomainName=RWL.local
    AutoConnect=yes
    Fullscreen=yes
    DesktopSize=fullscreen
    UseSSL=yes
    UseAllMonitors=yes
    LocalCopy=yes

    So my questions are this:

    1. Why is the Wyse client not pulling this file
    2. Is this even the right file to make the thin client auto boot to a view login instead of the normal wyse login
    3. Is the file configured correctly to do what I need to do?

    Thanks so much, I am VERY new to this, but have tried to do my homework before asking any questions.

    1. It is in the wrong folder or you are pushing the wrong value for OT161. Change the OT161 to / (simply remove the “$”)
    2. yes
    3. looks OK to me.

    OK, the issue was that even though I provided scope options 184 and 184, the system used those the first time to check versions, but the next 3 calls made to the FTP server were made by anonymous user and I had that access turned off. I have since changed the FTP server to only accept anonymous logins from a scope of IPs I trust, and this fixed the problem. Weird, but hopefully this will help someone in the future.
