After setting up wireless connection with USB Wireless Adapter on myHP ThinClient t5565(no built-in Wireless) with ThinPro OS (Ubuntu 10.04) I have ra0 wireless network interface which is OK and working for all applications except hptc-rdesktop which is waiting for eth0 to have networking. When eth0 is down and not connected RDP can not communicate via ra0. I see the following messages while trying to connect "Waiting for networking..." and also "Networking is not active" icon in system tray.
However I can browse Internet, ping network, etc
$ route output shows that I have ra0 iface as default.
I have the same situation. I have both, thin clients with an external USB WiFi antenna and thin clients with the built in antenna. They both connect to an RDP session but after a while, they get disconnected and will not connect back again until the thin client is rebooted. The same happens if you manually end the RDP session and try to connect back so it makes me think it is an RDP connection problem.
While this is happening, the bottom icon tray for the network is in refresh mode and I get the message that there is no network connection. I know this is not true since I only connect to my thin clients through VNC and I am able to do so while this is happening, hence they are on the network.
If you or anyone has a solution for this please let me know. Otherwise, I will have to go back to the wired option.
The HP t5565 Thin Client is a commercial product and this is the HP consumer forums. For a better chance at finding the answer I suggest posting at HP commercial forum. Below is link to the Workstations - Thin Clients board. Workstations - Thin Clients
