Some facts about the upcoming IGEL UD 10

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Hi Folks,

i just want to share some facts about the new IGEL UD 10 device with you.

 

The new IGEL UD10

The new IGEL UD10

 

CPU: VIA Eden X2 dual-core processor
Chipset: VIA VX900
RAM: Up to 2GB DDR3
HDD: Up to 4GB
Ports: 3x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, 2x PS/2, 2x RS232, 1x parallel port, 1x Display Port
Ethernet: 1GB
Seperate (sold) Options: WiFi b/g/n , a internal Smart Card Reader and a infrared touchscreen
Max. Resolution (inbuild Display): 1920×1080
Max. Resolution (Display Port): 2560×1600
Inbuild Display Specs: 23.6″ Widescreen
Power consumption: ~38 W (Comment: mostly for the Display…)
Operating Systems: IGEL Linux V5 (UD10-LX), Windows Embedded 7 (UD10-W7)
Launch date: 1st of October 2013

Regarding the new IGEL Linux V5 i can’t tell much at the moment, the screen above is a fake (i just want that it looks nice… 🙂 ..but the device picture is real. ) but the final result will look like that. As soon there is a IGEL Linux V5 available i will write more about it but currently IGEL do not share any RC’s or preview Versions. 🙁

You should be aware that a few things will change in the upcoming months, like the Productnames (see above) but don’t panic… It’s still a IGEL Linux. Regarding Windows 7 is not much to say, still a IGEL optimized Microsoft Windows Embedded but i will send also an update regarding this once it is available.

Regarding the specs, the device looks nice on the first view and could be a very nice solution depending on the use case. If you’re looking out for a cool (large display) all in one device you should try to get a trial device after the product lunch…

Cheers

Michael

P.S.: Of course i will rework the cloud-client.info hardware whitepaper after the final release.

Solution: Updated Apple device driver package for the IGEL Linux x86 (LX/OS) and information related to the new IOS 7

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Hello Folks,

i’ve updated the two driver packages which can be downloaded here:

1) Apple device driver + local aTunes (iTunes alternative for Linux) + mplayer for the media playback      Download

2) Apple device driver only      Download

The updated packages are now able to detect an Apple Device without any User interaction, to enable this feature hide all three sessions in System->Firmware Customization->Custom Application. Then browse to Custom commands->Desktop commands->Custom Command Desktop Final and remove # from the line #setsid /config/sessions/applelauncher0 and reboot the device. After the reboot the device will check for an Apple Device every 5 seconds (can be modified thru the sleep commands). So you have three way how to mount a Apple device.

One small Tip: If you want to make only the DCIM folder available to transfer pictures in an ICA or RDP session you can browse in the IGEL setup in the session configuration to the ICA or RDP Global configuration and change in Mapping->Drive Mappings the path from /media/apple to /media/apple/DCIM.

If you already using one of these packages you only have to replace the UMS Profile and not the binaries.

Important Note: The new Apple IOS 7 is working with this package but it seams to be that the IPad together with IOS 7 get to less voltage from the client. If you got other results please inform me!

(Thanks to a User for this quick update, i only got an IPad with IOS 7 for my tests and not an IPhone!)

Update: It seams to  be that IOS7 produces some “hick ups”, as soon there is a fixed version available i will update this package.

 

Cheers

Michael

P.S.: This is the last release created in the manual way, all future releases will be created with DATI and can be edited/modified with DATI by your own, also this will be a sample how you can work with DATI for a IGEL Linux software integration.

Solution: Improved Apple device support for IGEL Linux (x86)

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Hi Folks,

like promised here is the improved Apple device Support for the x86 based IGEL Linux.

There are now two custom Partition packs available:

1) Apple device driver + local aTunes (iTunes alternative for Linux) + mplayer for the media playback      Download

2) Apple device driver only      Download

Both packs are coming now with an improved mount script that shows status messages to the User, also a unmount session is now available.

Apple device support for IGEL Linux (x86)

Solution: cloud-client.info introduces first Apple device support for Linux based Thin Clients

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Hi folks,

so often i’ve been asked to use Apple devices like the Iphone, Ipad or Ipod with an (IGEL) Linux based thin client without using (expensive) USB redirection solutions…

Here is our first custom partition sample introducing Apple device support for all Universal Desktop LX/OS (x86) based devices!

atunes

Apple devices can be used local, in Microsoft Remote Desktop sevices or Citrix sessions and more. The pack includes also a local running Application (Atunes) which works quite similar to Itunes. Itunes will not recognize the device in a terminal server session but you can use file based Itunes alternatives and access the Apple device file system to copy pictures or what ever!

This solution is tested with various Apple devices (Iphone 4, Iphone 5, Ipod 7gen and Ipad 3)but please note: No one will support it. 😉 A jailbreak is not required… 😀

To read more or download the solution klick here: Apple device support

The package is modular designed, so you can seperate not required functions like aTunes….

Have fun and a nice Weekend!

Michael

 

P.S.: Regarding the fact that i don’t own any Apple device i want to thank all guys that borrow me a device without being afraid that i damage any device during my test’s… 😀

New UD3/UD5 Mini PCI Express slot pictures

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Hi,

like promised some Pictures showing the “hidden Feature” Mini PCI Express Slots.

UD5 Mini PCI Express Slot Half Size with Atheros AR9285 based WiFi Modul.

UD5 Mini PCI Express Slot Half Size with Atheros AR9285 based WiFi Modul.

Please Note: Bluetooth Modules will not work with the IGEL Linux, for Windows 7 you might be required to install Drivers and check any Module you want to use in advance!!! I do not provide any warranty that this will work with all types of modules, you need to check out this by your own! Also do always use external Antennas for WiFi/Bluetooth Modules like the DELOCK Antenne WLAN internal 701 or similar, this antenna can be mounted outside the metal case quite simple. To get a small overview check out the Delock Site: http://www.delock.de/produkte/F_558_ehftechnik_701_Antennen.html (Available in several languages), the cable should have a length of min. 10cm but this depends on the placement you want to use. Please also make sure that the antenna has no direct contact to the internal thin Client metal case to prevent any signal conduction directly to the case, this will have very bad effects for your WiFi connection. 😉

UD3 and UD5 Dual Core and a nice hidden hardware extension feature…

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Hello Folks,

very often Hardware Vendors announce features… If they have it or not.

IGEL is different, they build in a new feature and do not mention it anywhere incl. the hardware documentation!

If you open a UD5 and/or a UD3 and you look under/at the place where the smart card reader is mounted you will see a small slot where something can be mounted. You will not find it in “any” documentation, manual or product description but what is it? Quite simple:

It’s a not restricted (UD5=Half Size/UD3=Full Size) Mini PCI Express Slot (very common in Laptops/Ultrabooks)

Why is this intresting? This provides a new way to extend the device and there are a couple of extensions possible:

WiFi Card (you need seperate Antennas which can be mounted outside the metal case)
WiFi / Bluetooth combinations for Windows based Thin Clients (external Antennas required)
Storage Controllers
LTE/UMTS Moduls
Internal SSD HDD (yes, without an extra controller) and more…

When i first saw this slot i was not sure if this one is locked thru the (UEFI) BIOS and no one could provide me any details: so i ordered some Mini PCI Express Cards for my tests.

Until now i’ve tested a WIFI Modul from Atheros (B/G/N) and a WIFI/Bluetooth Modul coming from Ralink: Both worked without any issue and can be fully used. Remember, the IGEL Linux can not handle Bluetooth but Windows will do.

Advantage:

Very good way to extend the device without any external hardware.

Disadvantage:

I’ve no idea if this will have some impact on the warranty for the UD3.
Not mentioned in any documentation.. So it might be not supported in general.
Not in the manuals also mean: maybe gone with future board revisions.

Important: It’s a half size Mini PCI Express Slot, full size do not fit without an extra adapter! Do not use Wireless Cards without an antenna (pigtail) or an antenna mounted in the metal case, this mostly destroys the Radio component at the modul after some time. Needed Antennas can be ordered very cheap at EBay or good IT Shops. Test always in advance!

I did not test internal Mini PCI Express SSD’s, they are high expensive and this was to much for a “just for fun” test.

There will be some pictures available in the next days.

Cheers

Michael

First Pictures new UD3 Dual Core device

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Hello Folks,

during a product presentation i got the change to take some Pictures of the new UD3 Dual Core device that was also shown at the CeBit a week ago.

IMAG0176 IMAG0175

The case comes with the same form factor like the current UD3, regarding the performance the UD3 Dual Core seams to provide a little bit more power like the current UD5. The serial port/rs232 port is gone to provide a second DVI Port for dual Monitoring and this allows to connect two digital display to the client without the need of a Y-cable, users requiring a serial port can get this with a add-on connection foot for the client.

Also IGEL has shown a beta firmware of the upcoming 4.12.100 Linux firmware, the firmware looks to support RDP8 (Windows Server 2012 / Windows 8) incl. RemoteFX which is very  unique in the Linux Thin Client world (RDP7 incl. RemoteFX is already supported by the current IGEL LX/OS Firmwares).

At all the device looks very good on the first view, iam still waiting to get a sample for some more tests in my hands incl. the upcoming UD5 dual core. I have only one point to consider, the USB, Network and the PS/2 ports on the back are very close together incl. the two USB 3.0 Ports, this might be hard to handle for users if they want to connect a USB Harddisk or Memory supporting USB 3.0. For example to connect a USB WiFi Device (without extension foot) i was required to use a short USB extension cable because the WiFi device (a big one) did block the other ports also a regular USB Memory (not a ‘very’ small one) did block ports around without the use of an extension cable. But this point is currently the only thing that bother me a little bit and are related to the small form factor.

Cheers
Michael

P.S.: Sorry for the cables around… It was a tech preview…. 😉

Tip: Building a mobile/flexible UDC (Universal Desktop OS) test device

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Hi Folks,

currently IGEL provides free test licenses to test the IGEL Unversal Desktop Converter solution but if you test a lot of devices or need to do a lot of demo’s and test’s this way is mostly a little bit complicated and you’re required to pick up licenses from IGEL every time and maybe for devices that are not working/not supported.

So it would be cool to have a flexible solution and this can be done with a few trick’s.

Note: This way is legal and the IGEL license system by assigning a license to an MAC-ID will not be bypassed; it’s not a crack or something similar!

The IGEL License system assign’s a license to an onboard ethernet network card (MAC-ID) and by default this can not be bypassed for the general license assignment but the trick is to use a mobile device like an USB WiFi Adapter.  Disadvantage: You can not assign a license during the installation or thru the IGEL Universal Management Suite to an WiFi MAC-ID. So you can do two things: Install the software in a VM and use the MAC-ID of your WiFi card for the virtual ethernet card, then you can assign a license thru the UMS to the device or directly request a license from IGEL by providing the MAC-ID of your WiFi device; last one should be the easiest way. The license system inside the Universal Desktop OS will also work with a WiFi adapter, so only installation and assigning a license is tricky.

If you got a license from IGEL you mostly get also a small manual to deploy the license thru the local command line, this will work here to deploy the license after the Universal Desktop OS is installed to an USB Memory (i recommend to use a 1 or 2GB USB memory). The UDC can also directly install the Universal Desktop OS to an USB Memory (…without license), so no issue here and the license deployment is done with a few console commands. Be careful, don’t forget to select the USB Memory during the installation; otherwise you blow up your HDD!

My Universal Desktop OS test environment.

Important: You need to enable the WiFi Setup in general in the IGEL Setup! If no wireless LAN is assigned, the boot process will take a few times longer. Make also sure that the USB WiFi device in general is supported by the Universal Desktop OS in advance, this can be tested quite simple because you don’t need a license for this.

Disadvantage: Deploying/Assigning a license require’s a little bit time (only required one time), regarding the WiFi Setup the boot process will take longer (permanent).

Advantage: A not limited, fully licensed and always available Universal Desktop OS test environment without wasting licenses or time for requesting a trial license.

If you want to test a WiFi device, for an Laptop or similar, it should also work; the USB WiFi device is mostly the second WiFi device for Linux and will be only used to validate the license, not for a WiFi connection. If not, no problem: Unplug your USB WiFi device (license dongle 🙂 ), you can test WiFi in general without a assigned license (but without sessions in this case).

Make also sure that you disable native graphic card driver support (if used) each time before you test a new device, otherwise it might happen that the device will not boot and you will get a wrong result because you believe the device is not supported in general!

This solution is not designed or useful for a single test but if you’re working in larger installation’s or have the job do test a bunch of devices and you want to be flexible for these test’s and demo’s: than this is your choice to go.

Update: This is not official supported by IGEL in any way!

Cheers

Michael

P.S.: I can’t guarantee that this will work for the future but as said: it’s not a legal fault and currently i see no reason why IGEL should discontinue the way how it works. I’ve used it now for months and never got a issue, so i can now recommend it.

P.S.2: Of course no written guarantee or something similar, you’re mostly old enough. 😉

P.S.3: It would be cool if you support this blog by reporting your device test results, so everyone incl. IGEL has an advantage!

Tip: Solving audio issues with IGEL Universal Desktop OS (UDC) migrated devices

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Hello Folks,

sometimes if you migrate a Laptop or PC with the IGEL Universal Desktop OS it can happen that audio playback doesn’t work. Very often users assume that the audio device is not supported: this is mostly wrong!

During my last test nearly always the audio device was not set right or better: the wrong device was selected. This can happen if you’re migrating a device with more then one audio output device, as sample the most Laptop’s are coming with a HDMI port and a onboard sound card providing two Audio devices at all. In my test’s nearly always the HDMI Output was selected by the Universal Desktop OS as default and i only need to change this one time in the Sound Mixer/Sound Preference configuration (audio tool in the local taskbar if the taskbar is not hidden thru the configuration) to solve the issue. Just change the Output device/channel to the device you want to use and check the audio output again. That’s it…. 😉

Cheers
Michael

Tip: Building a roaming WiFi solution with Thin Clients

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Hi Folks,

sometimes user try to setup a roaming solution together with Thin Clients and discover different connection issues and the roaming in general works bad.

Reasons for roaming issues:

– The WiFi Adapter is not designed for a roaming enterprise solution – This happens very often and mostly WiFi devices are designed for a stationary or home/office use where roaming is not required by default. This includes also the WiFi Adapter used in the IGEL extension food and nearly every WiFi Adapter sold at retail market’s.

– To small Antenna’s, a USB WiFi dongle comes with a 2 up to 5 cm (1 or 2 inch) antenna and this is in general no deal for a roaming WiFi connection. If you compare this to a Laptop antenna, which is very often 15cm or more included into the display part of an “enterprise” Laptop, it has no Chance to provide a good result. Retail home use Laptop’s do also mostly not provide a large antenna, this can be compared quite easy… Use a 600$ home and a 1300$ enterprise Laptop and compare the WiFi signal quality, in 80% of all test scenario’s you will see a big difference here and the enterprise Laptop provide a much better signal quality.

– Antenna is covered by parts of the device case and/or the signal is blocked in the direction to the Access Point.

How to solve this?

Simple: Forget WiFi network card’s or USB Adapter’s and take a new approach to setup a roaming solution: Use an Ethernet to WiFi bridge. This way is more expensive then a funny USB WiFi gimmick solution, but it will work and you have a lot of different solutions available depending on the scenario.

Benefit: The thin client/end device don’t has to deal with the WiFi connection at all, these device also do have more seperate antenna’s and very often more then one connection interface/circuit to provide permanent connection stability. It’s driver independent and it will work with Windows CE, Linux and Windows based end user devices out of the box thru the ethernet port.

Usage: Industrial WiFi requirements, Thin Client and WiFi device are mounted on a cart, truck, construction vehicle or similar. This solutions is not or only limited useable for regular Office walk thru designs.

Devices:

Netgear WiFi Bridge N900

From the lower price segment these devices will work good for small/medium environment’s: Netgear WiFi Bridge N900, Price ~100 US$, two antennas (picture) or Cisco Small Business – WET200 Bridge, Price ~130 US$ with two antennas. For outdoor solutions and high end requirements (large range/two or more connection circuits) the price range can go up to 1000 US$ or more. In any way: All devices that can be used as a WiFi Bridge (mostly all Access Points/Routers) can be used for this trick and they provide much better results then any WiFi USB dongle will do.

Update: I’ve been asked for an high end outdoor solution device, look @ Funkwerk/Bintec (www.teldat.de) for Bridge devices, the biggest devices can handle up to a 5km (4 Miles) distance and they always come with multiple circuits and antennas like the W1002n (up to 1000m range). But please: These devices are mostly not designed for indoor use and are very expensive (between 400 and 3000 US$)! So for industrial use in construction areas, mines or similar it might be ok but for the use in a habitation or indoor: Forget it please!!!

Cheers
Michael

P.S.: Like everytime no guarantee from my side and you need to test this! This article is also only for mobile clients moving around in a building or area a lot!

P.S.2: This will only provide a little help against radio interference, check this out too if the issue is not solved by an Ethernet to WiFi bridge! I’ve got an old  USB Bluetooth dongle that kills any WiFi (B/G/N=2.4 GHz) connection in a 5m (15 feet) area as example…. 🙂

Migrated: HP Elitebook 8760w with IGEL Universal Desktop OS Version 4.10.100

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Hello,

today we migrated a HP Elitebook 8760w with the IGEL Universal Desktop OS 4.10.100/4.11.100 (issue see below) and the result is ok.

WiFi: Working
Ethernet: Working
Audio: Working incl. HDMI Output
GFX Card (AMD FirePro M5950): VESA mode only, no native driver support (Single Screen / VESA max. Resolution 1920×1080 tested and working)
USB Ports: USB 3.0 (the two ports in front of the left side) not working, 3x USB 2.0 Ports working fine
Touchpad: IM PS/2 Synaptics Touchpad is working with 4.10.100 but not with 4.11.100
Webcam: Not available for this device, external WebCam is working fine if connected thru one of the working USB 2.0 ports for ICA Sessions with XenApp 6.5
Multimedia results: Very good with HDX Flashredirection (HD Quality) and also multimedia redirection.

In general the result is good, iam not happy with the VESA mode but the Laptop comes with an Intel i5 CPU and can easily compensate this for multimedia output. The max. resolution of 1920×1080 is working so we have no problem with the missing native GFX driver support. USB 3.0 support would be fine but i think this is only a question of time.. 🙂 The touchpad issue with the 4.11.100 is a pain but i hope IGEL will include missing drivers here in the future, so we have to use the working 4.10.100 until this is fixed; it’s ok for the user so it’s also ok for me at the moment. 🙂

So if you are looking for a Laptop based Thin Client (…or call it Mobile Thin Client/Mobile Cloud Client)… it might be a deal.

Cheers
Michael

P.S.: This is without any guarantee, you have to test this by your own too!
