WTware Centre - Suggestions

Post by J1mbo » Thu May 19, 2016 7:17 pm

We are continuing to test this product and finding it's working well for us so far 8)

Here are some suggestions:
  • Organise terminals automatically by subnet (i.e. some kind of tree view). It would be fine for the admin to have to manually enter the subnets (like in AD Sites & Services). Terminals not having a matching IP could go in a 'default' section.
  • Apply templates at the subnet level, so that new terminals automatically pick up those settings without stalling at the "I need a configuration" screen.
  • RPi config.txt settings built-in to manager (browser works OK of course, just another step).
  • Ability to reboot all terminals in a subnet, for example for new version, with some staggered approach like one terminal per minute (TFTP might be remote and bandwidth limited).
Many thanks!

Thanks, a couple more!
  • Terminal list in wtware Centre should show status of each terminal in the list (online or offline). Eg the workstation type icon (PC/RPi) could be greyed-out as it is now for offline or coloured when terminal is online, discovered by ping or such every minute of so perhaps.
  • wtware Centre can be locked by another administrator. As well as waiting, we should be able to forcibly take over the session.
