Setup wizard (I.1). A common setup wizard is used to install the Lan Core application on a Windows-based operating system.
Configuration wizard (I.2). A configuration wizard is shown just before completing the installation process. This wizard allows you to quickly identify the network interface on which the PXE service will run. Network interfaces and external DHCP services are automatically detected.
Main window (C.1). It is commonlya the first window that Lan Core shows when the user launch the application. From this window the user has access to the main menu, a list of connected terminals, and the Windows' Lan Core service.
a If the application detects that the Lan Core service is not properly configured, the application shows the server configuration window (C.2) when it is launched.
Server configuration window (C.2). It includes the configuration required for the PXE service, i.e. the information concerning to the DHCP service (internal or external) and the Trivial FTP (TFTP) service.
Note that the Lan Core service, i.e. the PXE service, has to be attached to a single network interface. This interface is selected at the beginning in the server configuration window. By default, the application selects the first network interface, typically named as eth0.
Terminal list (C.3). Interface used for editing and removing terminal configurations. This window shows all terminals identified, whether the terminal is currently connected or not. Each terminal is uniquely identified by its ethernet hardware address (MAC address). The MAC address of all zeros, i.e. 00:00:00:00:00:00, identifies the terminal configuration used by default.
Terminal configuration (C.4).
Terminal. A terminal model is selected from this tab. Each model includes specific software modules for hardware components and devices, mainly: CPU, network interfaces and video card. By default it is selected a generic model for Intel x86 architectures.
Server. Server IP address (each terminal can be connected to a different server), protocol (RDP, VNC, ICA, etc.), and optionally: username and password.
Devices. Configuring external devices: keyboard (language and layout) and mouse.
Monitor. Monitor list (to be deprecated).
Desktop. Screen resolution. Typically values: 600x480, 800x600 and 1024x768 (to be deprecated).
