    Hello all, Im new to the thin client game and am bidding on a thin client for a little experimentation and eventually a workstation for my brother. Does anyone know, since the WYSE WT8235LE has no soundcard, if i could use a USB soundcard such as a Griffin iMic to get audio out? My brother and myself listen to music quite a bit, but would i just be better off spending the extra $10 for a CE (instead of NTe) based TC with only 1 USB, parallel and serial up the wazoo, PCMCIA (for wireless??), and a onboard sound card??

    Thanks to all that respond.
    Oh, ill poke around too but im a little curious about the Licensing stuff- I have Windows Server 2000.

    Hey,

    The 82325LE does have a sound card however no speaker, I have built custom .BIN files for these many times and sound works great. Just plug in some speakers!

    In the NTe downloads are some of the files I have used to update the NTe units with USB support (remember NT does not officially support USB devices), sound, FAT32 and other tweaks.

    I actually like these old NTe devices as they are very tweak-able!

    Cheers,
    -TT

    GREAT! The pictures available on the eBay auction and the internet are very nondescript, and i had a hard time finding any info on that. Thank you so much, all my hesitations are dissolved.

    The only thing i am now unsure of is licensing and the licensing server. I read the support doc on the Micro$ website but it remains unclear. I only intend to have 2, maybe 3 thin clients (Im a teen hobbyist, not a huge corporation..LOL) – do i need to purchase Windows 2000 Pro Licenses for all of these or can i just use the license from my Windows 2000 server or what?

    Sorry for all the questions, I’m a Mac (no licensing whatsoever), and am new to the whole “Windows server” concept (I thought servers needed to be stable!).

    Well you do need to buy a per device TS CAl which is expensive.

    If its just to mess around with there is a termsrv.dll that is hacked that allows XP Pro to act as a trminal server for more than one session,

    Thanks ThinkThin, after some Googling i discovered that little .dll mod and tried it on my XP machine. Downloaded some RDP software (for mac 🙂 and, can i say that i am absolutely amazed at the quality of the connection, even over my brothers B (802.11b) it was smooth. Can’t wait for my Thin Client!
