Praim ThinOX terminals support a minimal WBT user interface, as well as a more familiar Windows type Desktop interface.
In WBT Mode, the "Connections Manager" is displayed on the desktop of the terminal as shown below.
The Connections tab is used to launch defined sessions. The Configure tab can be used to Add, Edit or Delete terminal sessions; these functions are displayed at the bottom of the Connection Manager window when the Configuration tab is selected.
The Connection Manager consist of two tabs:
- Connections: allows users to launch defined connections
- Configuration: allows users to edit and define new connections.
It is possible to autostart sessions at system boot time (see next chapters for more information).
Kiosk Mode is very similar to WBT except that the Connections Manager is not started automatically on the startup.
To access the Connections Manager you have to press CTRL+ALT+END key on the keyboard.
To add a new session in Desktop Mode, click the right mouse button over the desktop and select the “Add Connection” menu option from the popup menu shown below.
From this menu you can also access the Connections Manager.
When right clicking on a session icon on the desktop, the following options will be shown:
Open: activates the session.
Edit: modifies the session configuration.
Startup Options: change startup options (see next chapter for more information).
Delete: delete the session.
Auto-Starting Session On Startup
Any defined terminal session may be started manually by double clicking on the icon for that session within the Desktop or in the Connection Manager window (when the Connections page is active). Alternatively, the session can be started by selecting the icon for the session with the mouse and clicking on “Open”.
Any session may be configured to auto-start using the “Startup” menu from the Connection Manager.
From the Configuration page of the Connection Manager, select the session and click ”Startup” at the bottom of the Connection Manager window.
The following dialog box will be displayed for configuring the autostartup session.
Enable this connection as the Default connection: the session will be the default session. The default session can be made the active session by using the CTRL+ALT+Home hotkey sequence.
Enable connection autostart: the session will be automatically started when the system boots.
Enable Automatic reconnection: the terminal will automatically try to reconnect the session whenever it is closed.
The other two options will shut-down or reboot the terminal when the connection closed.
