Configure the ENET settings

About this task

This section describes how to configure the Ethernet settings on your thin client.

Steps

  1. From the desktop menu, click System Setup > Network setup.
    The Network setup dialog box is displayed.
  2. Click the ENET tab, and do the following:
    Figure 1. ENET tab
    ENET
    1. From the Ethernet Select drop-down list, select a wired network connection.
      NOTE For Wyse 5070 Thin Client without SFP or RJ45 module, the ENET0 option is selected by default. For Wyse 5070 thin client with SFP or RJ45 module and Wyse 5470 Thin Client that is connected to Dell WD19 docking station, select either ENET0 or ENET1 based on your network preference.
    2. From the Ethernet Speed drop-down list, select a value for the Ethernet speed. The default value is Auto-Detect. If your network equipment does not support the automatic negotiation, select any of the following values:
      • 10 MB Half-Duplex
      • 10 MB Full-Duplex
      • 100 MB Half-Duplex
      • 100 MB Full-Duplex
      • 1000 MB Full-Duplex
      NOTE The 10 MB Full-Duplex value can be selected locally. However, this mode can be negotiated through Auto-Detect.
    3. Click the IPv4 button, and then click Properties to configure the following options:
      • Dynamically allocated over DHCP/BOOTP—Select this option to enable your thin client to automatically receive information from the DHCP server. The network administrator must configure the DHCP server by using DHCP options to provide information. Any value that is entered locally in the Options tab is replaced by the DHCP value. If the DHCP server fails to provide replacement values, the locally entered value is used.
      • Statically specified IP Address—Select this option to manually enter the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
        • IP Address—Enter a valid network address in the server environment. The network administrator must provide this information.
        • Subnet Mask—Enter the value of the subnet mask. A subnet mask is used to gain access to machines on other subnets. The subnet mask is used to differentiate the location of other IP addresses with two choices—same subnet or other subnet. If the location is a different subnet, messages that are sent to that address must be sent through the default gateway. This does not depend on the value that is specified through local configuration or through DHCP. The network administrator must provide this value.
        • Default Gateway—Use of gateways is optional. Gateways are used to interconnect multiple networks—routing or delivering IP packets between them. The default gateway is used for accessing the Internet or an intranet with multiple subnets. If no gateway is specified, the thin client can only address other systems on the same subnet. Enter the address of the router that connects the thin client to the Internet. The address must exist on the same subnet as the thin client as defined by the IP address and the subnet mask. If DHCP is used, the address can be supplied through DHCP.
    4. Click the IPv6 button, and on the Properties tab, configure the following options:
      NOTE The limitation of the dual IPv6 network is that the device cannot automatically determine which connection to use among the two.
      • Select the Dynamically allocated over DHCP/BOOTP option to enable your thin client to automatically receive information from the DHCP server. The network administrator must configure the DHCP server (using DHCP options) to provide information. Any value that is entered locally in the Options tab is replaced by the DHCP value. If the DHCP server fails to provide replacement values, the locally entered value is used.
      • Select the Statically specified IP Address option to manually enter the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
        • IP Address—Enter a valid network address in the server environment. The network administrator must provide this information.
        • Subnet Prefix Len—Enter the prefix length of the IPv6 subnet.
        • Default gateway—Use of gateways is optional. For more information, see various IPv4-supported options in this section.
    5. Select the Enable the IEEE 802.1x authentication check box, and from the EAP type drop-down list, select TLS, LEAP, PEAP or FAST.
      • TLS—Select this option, and click Properties to configure the Authentication Properties dialog box.
        • Select the Validate Server Certificate check box because it is mandatory to validate your server certificate.
          NOTE The CA certificate must be installed on the thin client. The server certificate text field supports a maximum of approximately 255 characters, and supports multiple server names.
        • Select the Connect to these servers check box, and enter the FQDN of the server.
        • Click Browse to find and select the client certificate file and the private key file you want.
          NOTE Ensure that you select the PFX file only.
        • Select either User Certificate or Machine Certificate, base on your choice.
      • LEAP—Select this option, and click Properties to configure the Authentication Properties dialog box. Be sure to use the correct username and password for authentication. The maximum length for the username or the password is 31 characters.
      • PEAP—Select this option, and click Properties to configure the Authentication Properties dialog box. Be sure to select either EAP_GTC or EAP_MSCHAPv2, and then use the correct username, password, and domain. Validate Server Certificate is optional.
      • FAST—Select this option, and click Properties to configure the Authentication Properties dialog box. Be sure to select either EAP_GTC or EAP_MSCHAPv2, and then use the correct username, password, and domain.
        NOTE During the initial connection with EAP-FAST, when there is a request for a Tunnel PAC from the authenticator, the PAC is used to complete the authentication. The first-time connection always fails, and the subsequent connections succeed. Only automatic PAC provisioning is supported. The user/machine PAC provisioning that is generated with CISCO EAP-FAST utility is not supported.

        When EAP-MSCHAPV2 or EAP-GTC is selected for PEAP or FAST authentication, an option to hide the domain is available. Username and password boxes are available for use, but the domain text box is disabled. When EAP-MSCHAPV2 or EAP-GTC is selected for PEAP or FAST authentication, a check box to enable the single sign-on feature is available.

  3. Click OK to save your settings.
