Thinstar 200 HOWTO


Booting Up
Logging in to a Win 2000 Terminal Server via RDP
Rear of unit
Insides of unit

You need the following items:

  1. NCD Xterminal.
  2. Either a Unix server running
  3. OR a Windows Terminal Server
  4. OR a Citrix Server

Eeprom Config

The unit needs to know what sort of monitor you have plugged in, and what capabilities the Xserver should use. To do this, boot the Thinstar and press F2 after it has finished booting.
