I try and avoid XPE for the same reason.

The igel thin clients are supposed to handle smart cards well but I have never used them myself. I can ask around at iforum if you like. Email me on the .mil and we can discuss further.

I did not have that problem with neolinux when I used them. But they were very sensitive to the readers we used and the version of actividentity being used. V6 or higher worked best.

I'm trying to stay away from XPe because of the patching.
We tried a Neolinux client a few months ago and we had a lot of trouble with CACs. When you took the card out, the system would lock (as it should), but then you could not unlock it. It was like the it could not detect the card again.

Has anyone used the Wyse Thin OS Thin clients?

HP's will do it. i have used them with a CAC and they work fine. HP bought Neoware and those models are now featured in the HP lineup. their Neolinux client works with CAC although it is sensitive to the readers you use. I deployed a lot of T5270's running XPe. We had issues, but not with CAC.

Hi all, we're looking to replace our Wyse 941G TCs with newer ones. They've been really good TCs; the only thing I hate is patching Windows XP embedded.

I'm looking to replace them with Linux TCs or any other OS that is pretty secure and does not require much patching. The TCs are automatically configured to launch an ICA Desktop session to our Citrix servers. Another requirement is that they must support CACs (Smart Cards)

Any recommendations?
