Preface

Overview

The Cisco Virtualization Experience Client (VXC) 2112 and 2212 are workstation-class virtualization clients that run WTOS firmware for use with the Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) and the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). The ICA and RDP protocols are designed to deliver a user desktop from a centralized host server across standard IP networks, enabling you to use applications and desktop peripherals as if you were using them locally.

The Cisco VXC 2112 and Cisco VXC 2212 are highly optimized zero clients that provide ultra-fast access to applications, files, and network resources available on machines hosted by Citrix infrastructures. WTOS uses the Cisco VXC engine to provide a secure, near-zero management core that requires no local antivirus software or firewall to protect against viruses or malware.

Session and networks services available on enterprise networks may be accessed on enterprise networks, a direct intranet connection, or from a remote location using a secure gateway from Citrix.

WTOS Initialization (INI) files are plain-text files that you can construct to contain the configuration information you want for your zero clients running WTOS (both on a global level and on an individual user level). For example, these INI files can be used by applications to save information about a user’s preferences and operating environment.


Caution


Information and procedures presented in this guide are intended for use by system administrators and should not be used by untrained persons.


Audience

This guide is intended for administrators of Cisco VXC clients running WTOS. It provides the detailed information you need to help you understand and use the WTOS INI files. It contains information on the different INI files you can use and the rules for constructing the files. It also provides the parameter details you need (with working examples) to get the most out of your INI files. In addition, this guide also includes an appendix that contains all of the supported connect options you can use for ICA and RDP connections.

Organization

The manual is organized as follows.
