    Hi,

    I’m testing S90 (512Mb F/256MB R) vrsion 4.01(build 0545.512) connect to Citrix Presentationb Server 4.5, I have encountered the following problem:

    i) I can’t read the file format from the usb flash drive pulg into the S90. Eg. I retrieve the doc file from flash drive, the system can’t open the file with Microsoft Word, instead I need to open the Microsoft word first and then open the doc file.

    ii) I plug in the usb hard disk (not flash drive), looks like the sytems retrieving the fiel from the network, it takes long time to open a file. Is this one of the limitation for the Xpe

    Another thing I need to mention here is the system time for the S90. Although I have disable the writefilter, set the correct time and then enable writefilter again. After few reboot, the systems time will set back to the default time which is difference from the system time that I set.

    Please advice.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Regards

    I have never seen the first issue but the second is obvious.
    S90 does not have a battery buffered real time clock. Therefore Windows tries to get the time from the BIOS. But as this is not buffered it sends some default time.
    That is why Wyse has included Neutron in their XPe builds. Neutron is contacting come timeserver in your local network (add yours to neutron.ini) or the internet to always have the correct time.
    WF status does not make a difference there.

    May I know this time issue problem will only happen with Wyse only ? What about Hp or other thin client XPe, do they have such problem ?

    Such a time “issue” will happen with ALL clients that do not have a battery buffered real time clock.
    If the battery of your PCs mother board is to weak, even your PC will not show the correct time.
    So this is not a Wyse issue but a general one.

    To add to the time issue; depending on how your network is setup, Neutron may not function correctly (we had the issue in our environment where neutron was trying to connect on ports/protocols our internal firewall did not allow). If your thin clients will be connected as domain systems, you may look into an application called TimeSync. This seems to work much better than neutron in contacting our primary time provider on our internal network.
