Hi all,

I've managed to get it running ;-)
HW: Sunray1
Server: jOpenray on Win2003 server

Since I no longer have SRSS available I needed to specify the server
address via DHCP.
This was the tricky part:

On a Windows (2000, 2003 EE) DHCP service
Using the GUI DHCP admin tool

* 1) Run the DHCP administration tool by clicking Start,
Administrative Tools, DHCP
* 2) Click the + next to the server you want to add the options
* 3) Click on the Server Options folder
* 4) Click the Action menu item, and then click Configure
* 5) Make sure the General tab is the one you are working on.
* 6) Scroll through the Available Options list
* 7) Click on the check box next to 049 X Windows System Display
* 8) Fill in the IP address field.
* 9) Click the Add button to add the IP address to the list.
* 10) Repeat steps 7 and 8 if you have a list of IP addresses
* 11) Click on the check box next to 066 Boot Server Host Name.
* 12) Fill in the String value field with a single IP address or a
* 13) Click the OK button to accept and apply both Options.

Et voila. Works.

Hi HaPe,
I have no access to a SRSS server, and do have access to a Windows Server.
I've tried to follow the steps you posted above, but I just want to confirm that I've done it correctly if that's okay?
I configured 049 X Window System Display with the IP address of my Windows Server that will run jOpenRay
I configures 066 Boot Server Host Name with the IP address of my Windows Server that will run jOpenRay.
Is this correct or have I done anything wrong?

I have yet to test this with my SunRay 2 as I'm waiting for it to arrive.

I think it's okay.
For more information, look at the sunray administration guide.

My Sunray arrived today.
It sees the server's ip, but won't connect to it.
The server doesn't show anything in jOpenRay either.

I've got it to connect to the server and start an RDP session, but the keycaps are all wrong and don't work.
When I try to use RFB / VNC, I get a message to say that this is disabled in this release.
Could you provide me with a version where it is enabled?
