ThinManager Configuration and Maintenance

Course Number: SPE201-LD

ThinManager® is a thin client platform with an architecture that allows for deployment of less-expensive hardware. This gives users familiar applications and tools in a format that reduces management and maintenance costs while increasing security.

This course is designed to teach you how to set up and use the hardware in the demonstration kit to provide effective ThinManager integration with existing systems. While the focus is system configuration, some of the topics covered will introduce system maintenance. Along the way, you will have an opportunity to explore a number of ThinManager features.

In this course, you will learn how to run Windows-based applications for Rockwell software via Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Services, as well as other content sources including VNC servers, IP cameras and terminalto-terminal shadowing.

ThinManager’s wizard-based configuration also allows administrators to set up advanced functionality and to customize the content delivered to the terminal based on who is logged in and what role they play in your work environment.
