    MAy someone has an answer for me about the addons folder.

    In this reference guide, https://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/wyse-3040-thin-client_reference-guide_en-us.pdf, page 9 they talk about a directory file in the addons folder. What is this for a kind of file and what i have to put in it?

    The directory files is a text file that list all the files in the addons folder.  I would recommend you ditch trying to provision your client via FTP and use the Wyse Management Suite(WMS) instead.  Off course the FTP provisioning works and is a good way to learn  client provisioning, but WMS would be easier for provisioning clients.

    Hello elproducto,

    after i got help from Dell, i was able to setup my environment properly. Also with the DHCP option tag. And taht the directoy file is just a flat file without fileending like txt, ini or what else.

    The update to ThinLinux to 2.1 was also possible only with FTP

    Glad to hear it.  2.1 upgrade is challenging.  FTP would be the smarter choice.  I used FTP in WMS to update my clients to 2.1.  The four components to install prior to upgrade can not be automated in WMS.   Recommendation is to update these component one by one, not a good approach at all for an enterprise environment with hundreds of client to upgrade.
