    Hello all,

    I was wondering what is the quickest way to connect a thin client? My clients are connecting wirelessly. What I do is.

    1. Create the devices in CCM.

    2. Connect the device to the Wi-Fi manually by scanning and then typing the Wi-Fi password.

    3. Go to the CCM settings and input the group registration token.

    The PC reboots and connects to the Wi-Fi and it’s profile. Is there any way the Wi-Fi can be configured in CCM or does the thin client have to at least be connected to the network to see the CCM configuration?

    Yes, you can configure WLAN settings in CCM. However, the client has to be configured once to connect to CCM either via wire or wireless.
    Therefore, if you can connect the clients to a wired connection once, you could point them to CCM via DHCP option tag, let the pull their config and you are ready to go.

    CCM does not have a separate section for wireless. Therefore, you have to enter the values in the manual INI section.

    This is a truly minimal setup. I’d just have to create the device in CCM, plug it into the network, give it its CCM name and off it goes!

    In the configuration generator I see a section for IEEE 802. 1X and one for WLAN. It seems like some of the info needed is in each of the sections. Let’s say I’m trying to setup 2 setups:

    1. SSID=TEST Security= WEP Passkey= bac832evc483!

    2. SSID= TEST2 Security= WPA2 Personal Passkey= Lockdown

    What code would I use to accomplish this? I have two locations only one of the wireless profiles would be used on any one client.

    1. Device=Wireless Mode=Infrastructure SSID=”TEST” Wepkey=1 Key1=bac832evc483!

    2. IEEE8021X=yes network=wireless access=WPA2-PSK wpa2pskpwd=Lockdown
    Device=Wireless Mode=Infrastructure SSID=”TEST2″

    I can tell I’m close, but this is what I’m getting after inputting this syntax:

    IEEE8021X=yes network=wireless Device=Wireless Mode=Infrastructure SSID=”TEST2″ access=WPA2-PSK wpa2pskpwd=Lockdown

    If I configure the wireless manually by scanning for the Wi-Fi it works so it’s something to do with the syntax.

    Don’t write it in one line.
    Follow my example. I’ve used two lines.
