Update the Neoware Linux Operating System

The OS of a Neoware Eon 4000 or E100 are updated using a package called a snapin which is uploaded to a terminal using the Neoware EZ Remote Managment software.

  • Logon to the Eon Management Terminal Server and Start the Eon Remote Management Software.
    • From an X-terminal type the following to connect to the Eon Management terminal server.
      rdesktop -g 1024x768 najas
    • Logon as an Administrator. It does not matter if it is domain or local administrator.
    • Start up the Eon EZ Remote Manager programme through the following path off the Start Button:
      Start > Programs > CSCF Thin Client Terminal Management > Neoware Eon Terminals > Neoware EZRemote Manager for Eons 3.0 > ezremote Manager 3.0 EE
  • Open the Eon Terminal Database.
    • From the top menu select File : Open
      • Navigate to: Local Disk (C:)\software\eon_ezremote_man\data\mfcf_neoware_eon_terms.rms
      • You will be prompted for a password, simply click on OK as the file is not password protected.
    • From the top menu select Settings : Password
    • Enter the CSCF Thin Client Master Password and click on OK.

  • Select the thin clients which are slated for upgrade (they must be online).
  • Select the SnapIn button at the top of the Manager.
  • Ensure that the Snapin path is selected and click on Browse.
    • Location the OS snapin which is a .2do file.
    • For Eon 4000s: C:\temp\neoware\eon_os2_for_waterloo\NeoLinux_301_Waterloo\install.2do
    • For E100s: C:\temp\neoware\eon_os2\install.2do
  • With the OS upgrade snapin selected, click on OK.
    • OS upgrade can take up to 45 minutes and requires at least two reboots which are done by the upgrade snapin. The terminal should not be touched or powered down during this time period.
  • In the case of Eon 4000's, Netscape 4.7 must be re-installed. This is a second snapin.
    • C:\temp\neoware\eon_os\unpacked\CAIL NeoLinux_ATI 2.4\install_netscape_only\netscape47.2do
