Set static IPs on Zero Clients
After setting up your Userful server, a recommended post-setup task is to set static IPs on your Zero Clients. This will enable you to turn off DHCP services on the closed Zero Client network, enhancing security.
This procedure only works with Zero Clients. IP settings must be set manually on uClient Adapters and LG devices.
From the Displays screen, edit the IP address field of a Zero Client. Disable DHCP, and enter whichever static IP you wish to assign to the device, then click OK.
Click Apply when all devices are changed. Each device will update in sequence, and the process may take up to 30 seconds per device.
To put a zero client back on DHCP (if it is going to be moved to a different subnet, for example), simply reverse the above process.
Enable USB Flash Drives on Zero Clients
Go to Settings and click on USB Storage Settings from the Storage Management section, and Enable access to USB storage.
