Connection details

 

All other buttons have the following functions:

Input field

Edit field for the alias name of the current address book entry.

Use this input field to specify the alias name of the current address book entry. This alias name is displayed in the header range of the "Quick Access" menu, above the IP address.

For a clear identification of the communication partner we recommend you choose one that bears some relation to the communication partner.

You may use all alphanumerical characters of the English keyboard layout for this alias name except these special characters: < > | \ / : * ?

Because this field is mandatory, at least one valid character must be entered.

If you leave this field empty or use one or more invalid characters, a message will pop up pointing this out.

Before you can continue, this field must have a valid entry.

Input field

Input field for the current IP address of the VNC server

Use this input field to enter the currently used IP address of the connected VNC server.

Port number

It is also possible to add the associated port number to the server IP address.

Example:

192.168.1.23:5900

The port specified here must be the same as that specified in the VNC configuration.

 

 

Hinweis

The target address of the Host PC must be in the same network as that of the Thin Client or must be accessible from there !

Input field

Input field for user name.

Use this input field to define a user name for the selected address book entry. This must be the same one that is used in the configuration of the VNC server on the Remote PC. The next time a connection is set up via this address book entry this user name will be used.

Input field

Input field for

Log-in password.

Use this input field to define a password for the selected address book entry. This must be the same one that is used in the configuration of the VNC server on the Remote PC.
If no password was defined, the associated address book entry of the "Quick Access" menu shows a question mark (?).

Checkbox

Checkbox for data encryption.

When this check box is ticked, the data transfer between Thin Client and the host PC will be encrypted so no-one can listen in.

This function should only be used in publicly accessible networks since it requires greater processing power on both sides (Thin Client and host system). This leads to a lower overall processing power of the entire Thin Client system.

Touch button

Touch button for

advanced settings.

This function is currently not supported and can therefore not be activated.

Display field

Display field for

current connection type.

This field shows the current connection type for the selected address book entry.

DlgBtn_ConTypeSelect

Touch button for

selection of connection type

Use these touch buttons to select a connection type for the selected address book entry. The following connection types are available: KVM box, VNC, RDP and NetC@p.

Each time you tap on one of these buttons, the connection type changes in a rolling cycle from KVM box to VNC to RDP and NetC@p. This change is shown in the connection type display field. The layout / settings (middle part of the "Connection Details" menu) also changes according to which connection has been selected.

Touch button or Touch button or Touch button

Touch button for testing whether the connection to the

VNC Server is available.

If the connection type has been changed and confirmed with APPLY, a touch button for testing the connection to the VNC server appears.

It is therefore possible to test this connection and the settings for all users directly from the "Connection Details" menu. This requires a physical connection to the communications partner.

Touch button

Touch button for returning to the previously selected address book entry.

Tap on this touch button to return to the "Address Book" register.
