  • From ThinManager, click Edit > Add Terminal
  • Make/OEM: Apple; Model: iPad
  • Proceed through the wizard and assign display clients to the iPad Terminal.
  • Finish out the Wizard when all desired options have been selected.

Once iTMC is downloaded and installed on your compatible iOS device, iTMC will need to be configured to point to the correct ThinManager Server.

  • Select the plus sign in the upper right corner of the iTMC client to the open the New Configuration window.
  • Specify a Configuration Description and a Primary ThinServer IP and save your configuration.
