    We have various thin clients around our buildings that can be used by employees to connect back to their desk PCs via RDP.  In ThinOS 8.6 and prior we were able to do this by configuring a direct rdp connection with “” in the hostname field.  This allowed the user to simply enter their computername into the hostname field when they launched the RDP connection.  In ThinOS 9.x it no longer allows an empty field for hostname from what I can tell in WMS.  Can anyone either tell me how to do this or think of a workaround?  Thank you for your time.

    Hi,

    Looks like you can create a fake connection that people can edit prior to launch.

    Yes — that’s what we’re having to do now but it’s a poor experience compared with how easy it was in ThinOS 8.X

    Now the user has to go through the steps of editing a connection whereas before they could just launch the connection and type in the PC Name and away they went.
