Thinfinity

Getting Started.

Welcome to ThinfinityUI

This page will help you get started with the Thinfinity UI web interface.

Introduction

ThinfinityUI enables the Easy-IP Windows Client to run as a Web Application.

This lets you access Easy-IP from any HTML5 web browser, thus avoiding the need to install the Easy-IP Windows Client on every user PC.

Installation

Ideally, Easy-IPv7 should be installed on a Windows 2012 or 2016 server, to take advantage of the ThinfinityUI Web Interface.

You could install Easy-IPv7 on Windows 2003 or 2008 server, but in that case, only the Easy-IP native Windows Client is available.

Note: ThinfinityUI is also supported on Windows 10 but will not run on Windows 7,8, or XP.

  1. Run the Easy-IP installer.
  2. Check the Easy-IP Client and Easy-IP Web Interface components. ThinfinitySetup.exe will be downloaded automatically.
  3. ThinfinityUI
  4. Select the Server Environment to install.
    Check only the Thinfinity VirtualUI Server. The "Development Environment" is NOT required for normal operation.
  5. ThinfinityUI
  6. Select the Server Mode to be installed.
    Choose Standard Mode. This is the default setting.
  7. ThinfinityUI
  8. Press Next and wait for the installation process to complete, then press Finish

Note: Thinfinity UI can be installed on Windows 8 or 10 for evaluation, but we recommend Windows 2012 server for production environments.

Configuration

  1. Start the Thinfinity Server Manager.
  2. Go to the General Tab. Ensure the settings as follows:

    Bind to IP = All Unassigned
    Protocol = HTTP
    Port = 6580
  3. gui
  4. Go to the RDS Tab. Follow the steps below:

    Check the box marked "Use this account for RDS session"
    Enter a Windows Username and Password.
    Click Test to verify that the username and password are correct.

    Important: Ensure the RDS user has full Windows Administrator rights and is a member of the Remote Desktop Users group. We recommend creating a dedicated user for the Thinfinity RDS session.

    Tip: The RDS user can be created locally on the server or be an Active Directory domain account user.

  6. Go to the Applications Tab. Ensure the settings as follows:

    Uncheck or remove any existing Thinfinity applications
    Database path = C:\ProgramData\Cybele Software\Thinfinity\VirtualUI\DB\
    Click Add to configure Easy-IP

  8. In the Application Profiles Editor, add Easy-IP, with the settings as follows:

    Name = EasyIP
    Virtual Path = EasyIP
    Home Page = leave blank
    Icon = Upload the EasyIP icon if desired
    Application Radio Button = Checked
    Default Application = Unchecked

    Resolution = Fit to browser window
    Idle Timeout = 0 minutes

  12. In the Application Profiles Editor, Credentials Tab, settings as follows:

    Check "Use these credentials" radio button
    Username = your Windows username
    Password = your Windows password

    Important: This user does not require full Windows administrator rights, but needs permission to run Thinfinity and access any folders Thinfinity requires.

    Tip: This user can be the same RDS username as in Step 3, or it could be a different username. Either option will work.

    Check "Allow anonymous access"
