    Hi,

    Has anyone tested or working with the following environment:

    Wyse S10 terminals using 6.5.0.34
    Windows 2006 – XenApp 6

    We’ve got a mixture of V10s, C10s and S10s and we are moving to XenApp 6 in the next few months from XenApp 4.5. One of the reasons for moving to XA6 is to use all the HDX features.

    Basically I would like to know if the S10 works with “HDX USB plug & play”, according to Citrix website it’s not supported and refer to TCX. Is this just a case that its not supported but it does actually work?

    Any comments appreciated.

    It is not working as you would like it to work.
    As soon as you need drivers locally WTOS is not the right OS.
    If you think of the same features of HDX USB like you have with V10 or C10, then S10 will behave in the same way.
    While TCX has more features, like redirection of Ironkey hardware encrypted USB keys, HDX should still work.
    But you would need at least WTOS 7.x.

    Thanks CG

    Its sounds like it will suit our needs for now, we only want to give the users access to an Encrypted USB mass storage device.

    We now have a plan to upgrade all 2000 S10 terminals to 7.x, I know that these cannot be downgraded once we have upgraded them and they then become a network boot device, is there anything else that we need to be aware of?

    Nothing else.
    Keep in mind that, as stated earlier, the encrypted USB mass storage device will not work with HDX.
    Only TCX can do that at the moment. But using TCX in a XA environment means, that there is no session security. And that means that every user can see every mapped USB device on the same server.
    So in your case, no really usable.
