Thin Client Overview

The BOS Rabbit Thin Client offers increased performance in a compact package. This low cost option weighs less than 1 lb allowing you flexible mounting options and lower shipping costs. And the robust and fan-less construction allows for quiet and reliable operation.

The Rabbit is optimized to work as a 'Green Screen' terminal replacement however because it is designed with the features and flexibility of a thin client it is easier to setup than other Ethernet terminals on the market. The setup requires no more than three entries and the 5250 sessions are ready and working, no mouse required.

Included in the Rabbit:
  • High speed AMD Geode GX 533
  • RAM: 128MB; DOM: 64MB
  • 10/100 BaseT Ethernet
  • External USB 1.1 Ports (4)
  • SNMP based BOSManager provides management tools for updates, monitoring, and control
  • AC/DC Adapter
  • USB to PS2 adapter
  • 3 year advanced exchange warranty


  • The RBT-366 outperforms similar products by more than three times.

  • Industry standard OS (Linux 2.6 Kernel)

  • Small form factor for space-saving, desktop and mounted deployments

  • Advanced emulation with 8 5250 sessions. Split Screen, Rule Cursor, macro support, multi host, GUI, 122-key keyboard support

  • Available option for USB wireless networking

  • 3-year advance exchange warranty

The Rabbit supports three modes of operation:

TBT Mode - Text based setup with startup wizard (no
mouse required), terminal green screen with auto start
and auto-reconnect, 122 key keyboard support, Function
key macro support and split screen.

WBT Mode - Windows based Terminal mode, where the
terminal behaves like a CE.NET device with full screen
applications, optional GUI 5250/3270, Terminal Server
access, Citrix or Tarantella which auto start and autoreconnect

Desktop Mode - Windows 2000 type user interface provides
access to all applications in a windowing environment
including GUI 5250 / 3270 with up to eight emulation


The new 8122b BOSaNOVA 5250 122-key keyboard can be used with any PC or Thin Client connected to Microsoft Windows Terminal Server or Citrix. It is driverless, enabling it to be integrated smoothly in all operating systems. As a result, organizations can look forward to regaining the benefits of true terminal-style productivity.

BOS 5250 Keyboard in Black

A typical keyboard has only 101 keys (104 keys on a Windows keyboard), in sharp contrast to the 122 keys that were standard in the conventional midrange environment. For users of traditional non-programmable terminals who were used to the full set of 122 keys, moving to a PC or Thin Client can mean a big loss in production. Up to 36 new key combinations are required to perform tasks previously performed with single keystrokes on the traditional 122 key keyboards.

While the 122-key keyboard for PCs are nothing new, those keyboards required operating system-specific software drivers. Those software drivers are not just expensive but are also problematic, such as when a Terminal Server or Citrix implementation is used.

Although industry-standard PC/5250 122-key keyboards work well enough with a PC or Thin Client running embedded 5250-emulation software, they are not fully functional when the user attaches to Windows Terminal Server or Citrix. The keyboard, in these instances, functions only as a regular PC keyboard; typically the upper function keys do not work. The new BOSaNOVA 122-key keyboard, however, works perfectly in both PC and Thin Client environments.

  • Works flawlessly with both embedded and Citrix or Windows Terminal Server applications, since it also emulates 101-key keyboards

  • The BOS├óNOVA keyboard is driverless, enabling it to integrate smoothly into any operating system environment

  • Simple keyboard map files are available for import to industry-standard TN5250e emulations, such as IBM Client Access and BOS├óNOVA TCP/IP

  • Map files can be modified to work with any manufacturer's thin client
