    I’m sorry if this is a bit of a stupid question but I can’t seem to find an answer to this and don’t actually have a Wyse terminal to test with at the moment.

    If I want to use the PNLite Server setting on the 1200LE and S10 terminals, do I actually need to have an NFuse/Web Interface box? I’m reading conflicting messages and articles – some say that the PNLite Server entry should point to a server running the Citrix XML service (which is obviously all Presentation Servers) and other say that it should point to an NFuse/WI server.

    It seems to me that if PNLite just uses the XML service to obtain a list of published apps that NFuse/WI isn’t need it and I can just point the terminals directly to a list of Presentation Servers. Is that correct?

    Thanks.

    Hi Helen,

    You are correct! Just point the device to the XML service on the Citrix DC and it will work.

    If you wish to use CSG then in that case you will need a WI PNagent site,

    Brilliant, thanks very much.

    I would just like to confirm one last thing:

    My plan would be to configure a fault tolerant PNLite Server list using the DHCP option 181 – is this just a comma separated list? Also, what happens if the first server in the list is unavailable, will the terminal automatically go to the next server in the list?

    Thanks.

    Hi Helen,

    Here is how I would do it:

    – Use the DHCP option tags 161 and 162 to deploy a WNOS.INI file. You can add more than one ftp server to the 161 tag for redundancy or use the enablelocal=1 and localcopy=1 commands to save the settings. This site has lots of info on how to set this up

    – In the PNliteServer= field enter the comma separated IP address of your Most preferred and Preferred Data Collectors. If one goes down the terminal will try the next. It will not load balance and there is a timeout before fail over so it may not be completely seamless. You could also use a FQDN that is load balanced.

    The 186 tag is used if you want to deploy WDM server for management, this is optional and many S10 users simply go with the wnos.ini file and DHCP.

    Now lots of jargon here, have a look at the Blazer downloads section of this site for docs on the option tag set up and to download some sample wnos.ini configurations.

    Cheers,
    -TT
