I need to add Internet Explorer to a Wyse Winterminal. I currently connect with an RDP and access a server for data and programs, but would like to have the ability to access the net directly from the winterm, without loging on to the server. I need some pointers for the direction to go. Thanks

ok these terminals connect to a terminal server. you will need access to the server to set up what apps the users (clients) have access to.

since the thin client doesn't have an O/S ( i think) since it is basically accessing the image of an os off of the server (once again i assume) then you can't really install anything on the thin client...

The winterm is only an access point. Think of it as a "dumb" terminal. Everything is governed by the terminal server.
