    Newbie to thin-client…please be gentle…

    I have lots of remote customers.
    They occasionally get protocol problems (Voip, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP….), so what I would like to do…is to use Any Wyse terminal, running something on a par with Ethereal or WireShark (apps support both Unix and some Windows). This would allow me to send them a terminal, plug it in, review and capture protocol problems remotely and then post it back to me – sounds good so far.

    But, my colleagues have had problems installing Ethereal and thus I am starting a-fresh.

    My questions:
    -Which Wyse terminal should I use (cheaper the better – they could get lost/broken in the post).
    -Has anyone managed to get a Protocol Analyser working on a Wyse model? Any tips or guidance would be hugely appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Roger

    Great question – I would say the simplest would be to get an S90 and try Ethereal. I have installed this on an older build of an S90 and it worked great,

    Cheers,

    The only problem I see is when using a S90 you will have limited flash space and a network trace can grow to a huge size. Consider plugging a memory stick to the S90 and configure Etherreal to save the files there. This will also prevent that you have to disable the WriteFilter.
