Hardware Address Reporting¶
When the client connects to server, it reports it’s hardware address. On Linux, the active interface with the smallest MAC address is used. On Windows, the address of the first interface (as listed in the Control Panel) is used.
Client Update Notifications¶
The client includes a feature which can periodically check for new
versions. This functionality is affected by the configuration parameters
UPDATE_URL. These are described in
Client Configuration Parameters. During an update check, the client retrieves
the file specified by
UPDATE_URL. An example follows:
WINDOWSINSTALLER = https://www.cendio.com/downloads/clients/tl-latest-client-windows.exe LINUXINSTALLER = https://www.cendio.com/downloads/clients/thinlinc-client-latest.i686.rpm DEFAULTINSTALLER = https://www.cendio.com/thinlinc/download OKVERSIONS = 3.2.0 3.3.0

DEFAULTINSTALLER parameters specifies the updated client packages
for Windows, Linux, and other platforms, respectively.
