[THIN] Re: Recomendations for really Thin Clients? (i.e. - bootp)

Steve,

Even with Wyse 1200LE terminals (about as thin as they come AFAIK), you n=
eed an infrastructure in place to distribute configurations and firmware.

1200LEs are java based, and we have found their firmware needs regular up=
dating. I suspect we would have found CE devices to be more manageable, n=
otably because Wyse have a management program called Rapport that would h=
ave helped manage slightly "fatter" Wyse clients.

Sounds like you might have some testing to do...

Regards,

Jeremy Thomas

Subject: [THIN] Recomendations for really Thin Clients? (i.e. - bootp)


Anyone using thin clients with bootp that you really
like?

We're on a .mil network and have to maintain regular
mandated updates, so we're debating whether to use TCs
with no local OS to be maintained, and everything that
I'm familiar with (i.e., used to sale) are either
embedded CE, XP, linux, etc. I recall a client using
Tek terminals years ago (bought out by NCD), but I
don't know if anything similar stille exists.

thanks
