button you can select the connection of the Thin Client to the host if you have not defined an address book entry as cicon2 Fallback.

 

Click on the associated button and the QUICK CONNECT menu will pop up:

 

Address book

 

Possible connection types are via the KVM box and direct connections via VNC, NetC@p or RDP to the Host PC.

The factory state of the Thin Client devices provides only one address book entry and a connection to a KVM box.

 

For more information on the address book, please refer to the section of the same name; information on changing address book entries is contained in the section on Address book changes, and information on removing address book entries in the section on editing address book entries.

 

The advantages and disadvantages of each connection type compared to the others are listed in section cicon2 Comparison of connection types.

 

Depending on the actual status of the connection you can either establish (CONNECT), disconnect (DISCONNECT) or pause (PAUSE) this connection for the active (highlighted in grey) address book entry. The touch button information also changes according to the actual status..

If you want to select another address book entry for the connection that is currently not active, you first have to disconnect the current connection status and the associated function key then shows CONNECT. You can then choose another address book entry.

 

Address book

 

The selected address book entry is again highlighted in grey (entry 1 in our example), but the QUICK CONNECT menu is not closed.

 

 

You can also make a selection via the associated function key of the Thin Client or the touch area of the function key button. By pressing the button or tapping on the touch area the connection is dialled up directly, an attempt is made to establish the connection and the QUICK CONNECT menu is closed.

 

Specify start connection

If you wish to use an existing address book entry directly after the Thin Client has been started, you can define this entry as the start connection. At the next start, this connection is used and the Thin Client starts to establish a connection to the defined station. The Thin Client will try to reach this address and automatically establish a connection when starting up. If no start connection has been specified, the connection needs to be established manually.

(factory state: first address book entry selected).

If a question mark appears below the DEVICE STARTUP checkbox, no password has been defined for this connection in the address book entry. This only applies to VNC or RDP connections. The log-on to the server is then carried out according to the settings defined for the VNC or RDP connections.
