Zero Client for Windows Multipoint Server 2012
Windows Multipoint Server 2012 is a new version of Windows that lets you turn one PC into many. Read more from Microsoft.
To install, enter the console mode of WMS2012, and download and install the drivers available here:
WSM2012 Plugable USB Terminal Driver.
Reboot into normal mode, and your Plugable USB terminals will all pop up fresh login screens.
Zero Client for Windows Multipoint Server 2011
- Boot into Windows Multipoint Server’s “Maintenance Mode”
- Make sure your server’s graphics drivers have been upgraded from VGA to the native drivers which support WDDM/Aero (usually from Intel, nVidia, or ATI). Note: some common server GPUs do not support WDDM and Aero, including the Matrox G200 series. These cards are not supported, and must be upgraded. This is required for the DisplayLink drivers in the next step.
- Download and install the latest Multipoint compatible DisplayLink drivers for the DC-125. If any errors are reported, let us know. You should see the screens attached to the DC-125 showing blank desktops.
- Note that USB Zero Clients with different underlying technology/drivers cannot be mixed on the same system. The major chipsets are DisplayLink, MCT (Magic Control Technology), and SMSC. So if you will have Zero Clients from different brands mixed on the system, insure they use the same technology (ours, including the DC-15, all use DisplayLink technology).
Now just return to “Standard” mode and (with keyboard & mouse attached to each DC-125), you’ll see a fresh login come up on each one.
A free 240-day evaluation copy of Multipoint Server 2011 is available for download from Microsoft. Up to 14 DC-125s per server are supported (limited by DisplayLink’s drivers and USB 2.0 limits)
