Re: Howto add a network printer on Wyse winterm S30...
The S30 terminal has the CE 5.0 operating system loaded as default. So you are limited by the operating system and not the hardware when it comes to network printing.
Here is a extract of the release notes for Windows CE 5.0:
"In Windows CE, TCP/IP supports network printing through the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. It does not provide the Windows Line Printer Remote (LPR) Spooler. However, independent software vendors (ISVs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can add this support."
In short, you need a 3rd party software program or a (SMB) printer server setup to setup network printing on the S30 terminal..

You can check the settings in the bios (password will be "Fireport") I dont think there is anything in there that would trigger this.
Is there a screen-saver option in the control panel for the device? If so, see if it is set. If not, then try using the Wyse website to update the terminals OS to the latest. This will hopefully solve the problem. It might just be an incompatability with the older OS version.
Failing that use WSI and an S30 image from the wyse Website.
WDM also has the option to to re-image the client.
You may also be able to get into the control panel of the terminal, and download an FTP image and set the terminal to upgrade from the image when uploaded to your ftp site. From the control panel, you can initate the upgrade manually
