    Hi,

    I believe Wyse have a telnet and SSHD addon so you can remote admin the box. Check the Wyse web site and if its not there let me know what version firmware you have and maybe I have a copy to suit.

    The Wyse distro is based on RH9 with an updated kernel and uses Busy Box for the Shell,

    Cheers,

    Hi thinkthin,
    Thanks for you quick reply! 😀

    I will try to explain with more details:
    We have a customer that is needing to setup a connection with XDMCP and ICA/RDP.
    He has anothers units as Fujistsu and ThinTune that work well and now he wants to change this units to Wyse S50.
    I will try to explain how thats unit works and please, if you know, send a way to do this with Wyse S50.

    -Thintune Units

    He set up all connection (ICA, RDP and XDMCP) like in S50 which they are showed on Desktop

    In XDMCP client on that unit has the following option:

    Allow remote execution of connections via rsh (it’s ON)

    When the customer connects in their Solaris Server from this unit, it runs a script to connect via ICA or RDP in a Windows Server, the script is the following:

    rsh -n &
    sleep 30
    kill -9 $!

    The rsh on ThinTune uses the ICA client from unit to connect to ICA server.

    -Fujitsu (Siemens) Units

    The connections also are set up on Desktop, but in this unit has the following option:

    Allow remote X11 clients (it’s ON)

    When the customer connects in their Solaris Server from this unit, it runs a script to connect via ICA or RDP in a Windows Server, the script is the following:

    eluxapps /bin/wfica &

    In Wyse units does’t have any option to able remote control like the other units.

    The customer tried to install the SSHD add-on and he tried to run a command via RXVT, but didn’t work.

    Do you have some other idea?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi,

    Just to confirm this is what you are after:

    – Wyse client connects to remote host via XDMCP
    – Remote host runs a login script to connect back to the Wyse client and runs command on the client
    – Wyse client then launches RDP or ICA session

    Is this correct? I have not seen this in XDMCP but I have seen setups SSH back to the clients. Can I ask why not just have two icons on the client and launch a session this way?

    Cheers,
    -TT

    Hi thinkthin,

    It’s correct !

    The customer needs to lock terminals and he can not creat two icons on Wyse desktop. He needs provider only one session via XDMCP to end users.
    Do you have another idea?

    Thanks a lot.

    My idea was to set up PNagent and log on to the device and have to two icons. You can still lock down the desktop and only publish the desktop to the user if they have rights.

    this appears to be a much simpler solution,

    Hi thinkthin,
    I also think it, but the customer needs to provider ICA from XDCM session like the other units (ThinTune and Fujitsu).
    Doesn’t it have any other way to able remote execution on S50?

    Thank you very much!

    Have you tried to run “xhost+” in a local busybox on the S50?

    Hi CG,
    Yes, but it have not worked fine.
    In SSHD files, /etc/ssh/sshd_config, there is “X11Forwarding”, if the customer changes to “Yes” there is not needing to use xhost command to able access to users or machines, rigth?
    The sshd_config on S50 is already “X11Forwarding = yes”, but do not changed anything on access way on S50.
    Is there another way to use XHOST?

    Thanks,
    Rafael

    I did it some time ago with a customer. I have just typed “xhost+” in the busy box. And from then on it just worked.
    So, it was only a guess.
    I am really no Linux guru.
