[THIN] Re: TERMINALS

Why won't you use remote admin or rapport to manage your WYSE thin  Client,
it would be much less of a headace than flashing via a laptop. We had this
problem and we upgraded firmware and it went away....

That certainly sounds like a different problem than power.

it is the same behavior at all four locations I support.  Those = locations

Generally it starts out with a user typing along working during the day =

back after that, sometimes we see it a month later for the same thing.

Have you ever looked into the building power?  I was at a company one = time
that had a bad transformer on a pole out back.  Computer monitors kept =
going bad all the time until we figured out the power wasn't clean.  Once
the transformer was replaced, problems went away - although slowly because
damage had been done.

it's the strangest thing with Wyse.  Either people have nothing but =3D

We have about 2700 wyse 3320's in the field.  They work fine. We are
currenting evaluating the 3125's.  They run just fine.  Now Rapport is a
whole other issue........

We are using Wyse WT3360SE terminals and have not had any major issues = =3D
with them.  When we first implemented them they were frequently getting =3D

clears = =3D the config.  Working like a charm now. :)

Links for all the different manufacturers are half way down the page at

You might want to look at the ChipPc OpTC if all you need is ICA

Does anyone have any experience with Terminals other than Wyse?  We've = =3D
had a high rate of failure of the Wyse units (various models in the 3000 =3D
series). I just ordered a 3125 to evaluate, but I'm more interested in
trying =3D another manufacturer.  We strictly use ICA, so we don't need alot
of other emulations or built-in browsers etc.  Any recommendations would be
appreciated.
