Low Bandwidth Sun Ray makes employees happy


Like Paul Shore I also own a Sun Ray @ Home package since ten months and I love that solution from the first day on.
Now a colleague has tested the solution via an ISDN connection instead of using DSL or cable (also known as broadband). The reason: No DSL available so far away from bigger villages in Germany...
Here some of his experiences...
  1. Installation

    It was very easy to setup all needed components.

    • Connecting the VPN-router with 10/100 MBit switch
    • Connecting the Sun Ray with the VPN-router (Virtual Private Network)
    • Connecting power, keyboard, mouse, monitor
    • Open the Internet connection on my ISDN-router

  2. Connection

    After 20 sec. the login screen appeared ... further 30 seconds later the GNOME desktop was usable. There was no need to:

    • change any router parameters
    • nor to install any software
    • or to change the firewall settings of my ISDN-router
    The only problem here: I've used not the original Sun Ray keyboard and so the key-mapping was wrong. But that can be configured of course.

  3. Performance

    I've used both ISDN lines with a theoretical bandwith of 128 kBit/sec for both directions (upload/download). Some tests on another operating system showed me that I should be able to use around 110 kBit/sec in practice.
    I was surprised about the high performance of this connection.
    The resolution was set to 1280x1024x24Bit.

Sun Ray - the easy to use solution which makes employees happy - in the office and at home :-)
