Devon IT recently released DeTOS 7.1., the latest version of its Devon Terminal Operating System (DeTOS).
DeTOS 7.1 features include:
- Devon Zero Client Feature – Enables thin clients to operate in a zero configuration mode through DNS environments, giving IT administrators a valuable tool for managing their users.
- Wireless & VPN – Thin clients running DeTOS can now detect and connect to the available wireless networks. VPN allows users to work remotely while retaining access to the devices and networks normally accessible from their workspace.
- First Boot Wizard – Helps DeTOS users get up and running quicker. Network settings, connection types, terminal settings, and more can be established to prepare for remote sessions.
- Local Printing – Users can identify and employ locally connected printers to print from their virtual desktop as well as from the local Firefox browser.
- Firefox 5.0 Update – Provides users with an updated version of the popular browser. Operators can enjoy Firefox’s features and system administrators can utilize the kiosk mode to provide Internet browsing without giving desktop access to the user.
- Citrix Receiver 12 – The latest Citrix client delivers the full Citrix remote desktop experience that users want.
- RDP 7.1 Client – Offers DeTOS thin clients the benefits associated with this key protocol. RDP 7.1 boasts an impressive array of features that are tailored to make every remote desktop experience exceptional.
All VDI and thin client devices that run DeTOS 7.1 (or Devon IT’s WES operating systems) can be managed by Devon IT’s Echo™ thin client management software. Echo™ management software automates the distribution of settings and connections to the thin client terminals, enabling system and desktop administrators to create or copy new arrangements of settings, connections, and disk images to tailor the IT environment to their needs. Among the many available settings that can be utilized is the ability to apply a password for the DeTOS control panel that prevents the end users from altering or creating connections, giving administrators greater ability to prevent end user error.
