1 Wyse Thin OS Technical Training
May 2007 ThinkThin Deploying Thin OS with Terminal Server

2 Agenda Introducing the S10 and V10L Management of Wyse Products Live Demonstration of implementing Wyse Thin OS New Wyse Thin OS 5.2 features Scenario based examples of deployment Technical details and gottcha’s Setting up Linux Additional Information

3 Wyse Thin OS Current Hardware Product Line
Simple optimized thin client for fast rollout Wyse Thin OS 1200LE Minimal install required (1 Minute Install) Ideal Appliance to replace legacy PC’s running SBC Very Small Footprint – (512KB – 2MB Image) Unique Wyse OS (not Linux or Windows) Stateless device Fastest ICA/RDP Terminal on the Market USB Only or Legacy Option Available Integrates with many connection brokers for VDI Simple text file management Multi-media support soon 1125SE S10 V10l

4 Winterm V10L and S10 Wyse Thin OS (formally Blazer)
Monorail mounting system….allows VESA mounts for on the desk…under the desk….on the back of a monitor.

5 How are Wyse products managed?
WTOS CE Linux XPe FTP WDM Configuration deployment Yes  Yes No Imaging Software updates /add-ons N/A Customers have multiple options for performing integral functions of device management XPe only platform where WDM (Rapport) becomes mandatory

6 When Is Wyse Thin OS Right?
Simple, easy to mange Users who want to login and work with no fuss Limited peripheral support needed No USB floppy or CDROM (USB memory is OK on 5.2) USB printers (with standard USB:001 interface) Parallel and serial printers (point of sale) Many driverless USB, Serial, PS2 barcode scanners Users who need fast booting high performance ICA and RDP sessions Integration with VDI connection brokers ThinPrint deployments (via TCP, ICA or RDP channels)

7 WTOS in Depth – Live demo
WTOS is THE thin client, best TCO and easiest to implement. New features on WTOS 5.2 include Citrix Secure Gateway support via PNagent lite Windows print server support Multi farm support in PNagent lite Updated Thin Print support Enhanced wnos.ini support via ftp, http or https Improved time zone support Smooth Roaming USB memory disk mapping and Smart Cards

8 WTOS Simple boot process
Powers on and boots WTOS OS Requests DHCP address, reads DHCP Options tags Customs tag point’s device to FTP server to default directory /wyse/wnos WTOS check's for required files A. firmware B. wnos.ini C. Bitmap If firmware is older then on device, it will update itself and restart the process If firmware is current then reads wnos.ini file which sets connections information, background etc WTOS is now at either ICA or RDP logon screen and ready to work

9 Follow these steps to deploy any WTOS thin client
WTOS - Deployment Follow these steps to deploy any WTOS thin client Prepare management server, either Rapport, FTP server or Connection Broker Prepare network with DHCP option tags Create a wnos.ini file to configure the Thin Client Note; for testing a static IP may be assigned to the terminal and the ftp path manually set to a test ftp server

10 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 1 ftp only
In this scenario we look at deploying WTOS in a simple environment via ftp This is suitable for easy deployment or when deployment without Rapport is required Advantages Disadvantages Read only ftp server required No reporting Simple to mange, easily scales Only supports limited configurations Easy to implement Does not scale to complex configuration

11 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 1 ftp only
Prepare management server For this deployment we need a ftp server with anonymous, read only access. Any type of ftp will do: Windows FTP Linux Cisco Routers In this example we will be using Microsoft FTP installed to C:\inetpub\ftproot

12 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 1 ftp only
Prepare network with DHCP option tags Create a 161 and 162 option tag in the DHCP scope the terminal will be in. These are custom options and will have to be created in the DHCP server Option 161 is the IP address of the ftp server Option 162 is the path to the wnos folder If the path “/” is used then WTOS will automatically append /wyse/wnos If the path is /mypath then WTOS only appends /wnos

13 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 1 ftp only
Prepare the Network - Microsoft DHCP server example Step 1 Right-click My Computer and select Manage Expand Servers and Applications Highlight DHCP and click Action | Set Predefined Options You should now be looking at the Predefined Options and Values screen

14 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 1 ftp only
Prepare the Network - Microsoft DHCP server example Step 2 click Add Type the code value Click OK Repeat the actions for the 162 tag / Wyse ftp server You can now add the option tags to your DHCP scope Wyse ftp server directory

15 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 1 ftp only
Create a a wnos.ini file to configure the Thin Client privilege=high lockdown=no <- Global parameters signon=2 autoload=1 Resolution=1024x768 desktop=asia.jpg Layout=center connect=ica \ <- Programmable parameters icon=ica.bmp \ description=“My Desktop" \ localcopy=yes \ browserip=CTXSVR01:8080 \ host=melapps2 \ httpbrowsing=yes \ reconnect=0 \ fullscreen=yes \ autoconnect=0 This is a sample of a simple Citrix published desktop

16 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 1 ftp only
Copy the wnos.ini to the C:\inetpub\ftproot\wyse\wnos folder The terminal should now automatically configure when put on the network! Trouble Shooting FTP path errors are most common, check the terminal system log for path Check system log for parameter statement errors Parameter statements always have a “\” at the end

17 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 2 Rapport Workgroup
In this scenario we look at deploying WTOS in a large centralised environment This is suitable for deployment in large LAN environments with one central configuration to all devices Advantages Disadvantages Provides asserting and greater control Greater complexity to set up Suits large, single configuration deployments Will not provide more than one configuration Allows to scale later with Enterprise licences Requires investment in server equipment

18 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 2 Rapport Workgroup
Prepare network with DHCP option tags Create a 186 option tag in the DHCP scope the terminal will be in. This is an option tag that tells wyse terminals the ip address of the WDM (Rapport) server This is custom option and will have to be created in the DHCP server We DO NOT need the 161 & 162 tags You can set a 187 tag to define a port if WDM is not on port 80

19 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 2 Rapport Workgroup
Prepare the Network - Microsoft DHCP server example Step 1 Right-click My Computer and select Manage Expand Servers and Applications Highlight DHCP and click Action | Set Predefined Options You should now be looking at the Predefined Options and Values screen *After adding the option tag add option to the thin clinet DHCP scope

20 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 2 Rapport Workgroup
Prepare the Network – Install Rapport server From the Preferences tab in rapport tick the Enable Return FTP/INI At Checkin box

21 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 2 Rapport Workgroup
Create a a wnos.ini file to configure the Thin Client privilege=None lockdown=yes autoload=1 Resolution=1024x768 connect=RDP \ description="Click to Logon..." \ Domainname=melapps2 \ Experience=1111 \ icon=RDP.bmp \ domainname=ica \ host=melapps2 \ Command="C:\Progra~1\Intern~1\IEXPLORE.EXE -k" \ Directory=C:\windows \ Fullscreen=Yes \ Colors=High \ autoconnect=1 \ UserName=demo \ Password=demo \ LocalCopy=no This is a sample of a dedicated RDP application in Kiosk mode

22 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 2 Rapport Workgroup
Copy the wnos.ini to the C:\inetpub\ftproot\Rapport\wnos folder The terminal should now automatically configure when put on the network! Trouble Shooting FTP path errors are most common, check the system log for path Check system log for parameter statement errors Parameter statements always have a “\” at the end except for the last line in the connect statment

23 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 3 Rapport Enterprise
In this scenario we look at deploying WTOS in a large scale environments This is suitable for deployment in large complex LAN/WAN environments with cental control over all devices Advantages Disadvantages Provides full control of all devices Greater complexity to set up Suits large, complex configuration deployments Greater knowledge to manage Allows automated managed release of firmware Requires investment in server equipment

24 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 3 Rapport Enterprise
Prepare Network Use 186 option tag as in last scenario Ensure ftp preferences are set in Rapport We will be using a feature called Default Device Configuration (DDC) to deliver different whos.ini files

25 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 3 Rapport Enterprise
Create a a wnos.ini file to configure the Thin Client privilege=high lockdown=no signon=1 autoload=0 MaxVNCD=2 resolution=1024x768 fullscreen=1 SEAMLESS=yes PnliteServer= DomainList=MELAPPS2 This is a sample of using PNlite to publish applications

26 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 3 Rapport Enterprise
DDC applies images to views so we create a view in WDM first under Configuration - Views We will now use a Rapport script to import the wnos.ini file into Rapport. Creation of scripts will not be covered here Create Group Types, i.e. “Citys”, “Divisions” Create Views, i.e. “View by City” -> City Switch view in Device manager, i.e. “View by City”

27 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 3 Rapport Enterprise
Default Device Configuration\New -> Default Device Configuration: Media Size for 1200LE = 0, for S10 and 1125 = 16 (and WNOS.INI -> ImageSize=16)

28 WTOS Deployment – Scenario 3 Rapport Enterprise
Trouble Shooting FTP path errors are most common, check the system log for path Check system log for parameter statement errors Check Scripts for Image size Apply to correct Rapport view Existing scripts may be modified from the ftproot\rapport directory

29 WTOS Do’s and more Do’s Always look with WTOS, this product rocks! Do use the wnos.ini file to control WTOS, even if its only a few. If possible use the DHCP option tags to configure Cisco routers can host the DHCP server and NTP server Do brand the terminal with wallpaper, screen saver Client side time support is available if wanted. Decide on PNagent or Published desktop – not mixed Do use the user ini file for admin mode if using PNagent Point PNagent to the Citrix Data Collector or Citrix Secure Gateway (CSG) PNagent site 5.2 can use http/https rather that ftp!

30 Citrix PS4 has changed the PNagent web site
WTOS Gottcha’s Citrix PS4 has changed the PNagent web site In order to configure it you simply need to edit the following fields in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\PNAgent\conf\webinterface.conf with the following information. So long as the edits are made to the ClientAddressMap that specifies to use “SG” or not, Program Neighborhood Agent get’s the correct info and it connects fine. ClientAddressMap=*,SG CSG_Server=fqdn_csg_server CSG_ServerPort=443 CSG_STA_URL1=http://fqdn_sta_server/scripts/ctxsta.dll

31 WTOS Gottcha’s In some poor networking environments you can tune the MTU size. This can be done from the wnos.ini file The confgen utility can generate wnos.ini files for you The WTOS will append /wyse/wnos to the ftp server path by default, no need to add this to the DHCP option Option tag 161 = <ip of ftp server> Option tag 162 = / Real path to file is c:\inetpub\ftproot\wyse\wnos Connect statements can not have spaces after the \ and the last line in a connect statement has no backslash. Check the system log on the terminal for errors when setting up new deployments

32 Linux – similar deployment more features
The good news is Wyse Linux offers the same text file management as WTOS Enhanced peripheral and application support Smart cards USB drives, CDROMS, Floppy drives VPN clients Firefox and Terminal emulation Slower boot time and much larger firmware DDC and Imaging is not the same as WTOS Good path for WTOS users who need added features and strong ICA performance (much better than Windows CE)

33 Additional Information
Complex WTOS deployments can be handled from Rapport, but Rapport is not a requirement – Official web site – Community web site. Free Wyse stuff and WTOS/DDC configurations samples! If logging a call with Wyse support include a copy of your wnos.ini file and details of the server environment. New V10L just released, will support many new features. The 188 DHCP option tag is used with connection brokers
