    Hi,
    Can someone confirm if the USB ports on the S10 can be enabled and then used in Citrix Presentation Server 4.0?

    I read somewhere that we are waiting on a patch that will enable this.

    Thanks.

    Hi dmack,

    When you say enable ports for PS 4 I assume you mean map USB memory devices?

    If this is the case a new firmware release is available for all WTOS devices, version 5.2. This enables USB storage (but not floppy or CDROM) as well as some smart card readers. There are a collection of USB bar code scanners and PDA’s that already work on WTOS.

    Its not a patch however, you will need to be under a support contract or buy an upgrade. Once you have the firmware installed on the devices enter the following line in your WNOS.INI:

    SessionConfig=all MapDisks=yes

    Cheers,

    Ok thanks TT,

    Yes i meant mapping the USB ports. The thing is if i put a USB device into a S10 it doesnt seem to recognize it at all. Will the new firmware fix this?

    thanks

    Hi. My question is: I need to use an external DVD writer connected via usb to a thin client S10.I also need to use this DVD writer in a RDP terminal session.
    How can I do this? With firmware release RCA_wnos_5.2.034 is it possible to do such a thing?
    Has anyone ever test a configuration like this?
    Thanks ahead.

    Hi,

    Currently the 5.2 code only support the FAT and FAT32 file systems not CDFS so no CDROM or DVDROM readers will works. USB floppy drivers are also not supported.

    USB memory disks, 4 in one SD readers and external HDD formatted as FAT32 all work.

    I hope this helps,

    Hi dmack,

    WTOS 5.2 code is under license by Wyse. You have either to buy the license or better buy a maintenance contract which will allow you to upgrade even to version 6.x. for free (and upcoming version, of course).

    Hi i just need a little advice regarding mapping the usb drive through to Citrix.

    I have just recieved the 5.2 code for the S10’s and it has been put in the FTP directory and the S10’s pick it up. I can now put a usb drive in and under system information it says it assigns D: and shows me the size of the drive.

    Is there a setting in the wnos.ini file that i need to update to tell it to present the client drives?

    We have V90’s presenting there local drives in Citrix and all is working ok with them.

    Thanks.

    Hi dmack,

    If you use confgen and select the map drives option this will give you the syntax you need in the wnos.ini file.

    To manually do it tick the drives option in the properties of the ICA/RDP connection,

    Cheers,

    Hi dmack,

    there are 3 ways to get the USB stick in the Citrix session.
    1. manually by checking “Disks” under Start-System Preferences-Option”
    2. generally for all ICA sessions via wnos.ini parameter
    SessionConfig=ALL MapDisks=yes
    3. separately for each ICA session via wnos.ini parameter
    SessionConfig=ICA MapDisksUnderZ=yes DiskMapTo=EFGH

    MapDiskUnderZ is optional and would map all attached stick under the netwirk drive Z:
    DiskMapTo refers to a list of network drives that are used for the sticks. In my example the first Stick would be mounted as E, second as F and so on.
    The local drive D: remains and is never changed or touched. But this is not needed as you are not able to open the d: drive locally.

    Cheers

    Do the USB-stick have to be plugged in before you logon to a Citrix session?
    I’ve tried the SessionConfig=ICA DiskMapTo=EFGH but still no drives in the ICA session, I have to reboot with the USB-stick plugged in for Citrix to find it. Any ideas?
    I’m guessing i’ts not Plug’n Play as in WinXp?

    You are right. If you are mapping drives with DiskMapTo=EFGH then the sticks has to be inserted before connecting. Using MapDisksUnderZ=yes will create a drive named Z: regardless if there is a stick or not. If you inert the stick while in the session, a folder is created on the fly beneath Z:. This is real plug and play.
