    S30 (Microsoft CE 5.0)
    Version 5.0 Wyse FR2 Hotfix 22 (Build 581)
    BIOS/Boot Loader Version: 1.15/BL9.0

    Very slow VNC connection: should a firmware upgrade solve the problem?
    Or is it a resource limitation (CPU, RAM, …)?

    Tested on a V30, too: same behaviour

    Any help much appreciated

    Kind regards
    Giulio

    Hi,

    Its a limitation of VNC however the V30 should be better as it has a faster CPU.

    If you are trying to remote control a ICA or RDP session VNC will always be slow. It is much better to shadow with the Citrix or Microsoft tools.

    If you are shadowing the local CE device try using the Tight VNC viewer as this may be faster,

    Cheers,

    …but is there any Wyse thin client which CPU could overcome that VNC limitation?

    It depends on what you are trying to do. VNC is designed for the occasional remote control of a computer. Do you need to always have this running?

    I find that the “V” class all work faster, like V10L. Can you tell us about what features you need on the terminal, is Windows CE a requirement?

    I use both s30 and v90 devices. The s30 is unbearably slow, but the only reason I remote into these is if there was a problem that needs to be corrected on the machine itself. As a thin client, that doesn’t happen too often. I think the biggest request is when a user in the field gets one and sets it up with an LCD monitor and I have to VNC in and get change the resolution and the refresh rate.

    When I change the refresh rate on the s30, it’s pretty common that I click something, disconnect, wait a few seconds and VNC back in. It is VERY slow.

    The v90, on the other hand, is very speedy and it doesn’t seem to have an impact on the performance of the machine.

    This is more a limitation of the CE version of VNC then of the actual hardware.
    All other OSes perform a lot better when using VNC.
