Gobi7: Day 7

All right one week in and doing well. Last night / todays test was to pull the card out of the SR2 and slide into the Gobi7. First, note that the side of the smart card with the chip on it needs to face down. The card is snug in there so that is nice to see so it won't just slip out an get lost. My session that I was using on the SR2 popped right up to the password screen and I was in. This did bring up my session that has a resolution set to 1600x1200 and the native resolution of the Gobi7 is 1024x768. I have full access to the 1600x1200 via panning which is all right for maintaining a single session and switching devices, I don't think I would use the higher res if I switched to it for my primary SR device.

Now since I covered this when I switched from the SR1g to the SR2 I thought I would recap the resolution settings that I have been using:

  • SR1g: 1920x1200
  • SR2: 1600x1200
  • Gobi7: 1024x768

As I noted in the switch from the 1g to the 2, I dropped 384000 pixels. So if one would move from a SR2 to the Gobi7 without the use of panning that is a drop of 1133568 pixels and if the change was from a SR1g it would be a drop of 1517568 pixels. Just food for thought.

The only item that I currently have left to figure out is how to get my center click (highlight/paste) when I don't have an external three button mouse connected.

For what it's worth.

Gobi7: Day 1

Well day 1 started out where day 0 left off with not being connected. After a couple of emails to some experts there are some successes. With a test configuration from Intelicis I was able to get connected to their SRSS. So that turns us back to Sun's vpn servers. I switched up the config to a wired connection to ensure the wireless was not the issue. That did not solve it. After then switching to a different vpn server I was able to get connected. I logged out of my SR session and then attempted to reconnect with my smartcard in so that I would get my existing session... now the vpn connection out of my house appears to be hosed. On my mac I can not get a vpn connection now so who knows what is going on now, the interesting part is that my SR@H (SR2) is still working like a dream. So, end of day 1, appears that the config issues are worked out, need to try it on wireless once the vpn issue clears up.

For what it's worth.
