I am using the Wyse 9235LE terminals and my friend added a shortcut to automatically send them into Kiosk mode and connect to the server. You need to be in the administrator account and activate the 'Write Filter Disable' and then set the viewers IP address, create the shortcut to Internet Explorer which then needs to be saved into the users startup folder. On each of my terminals there is a user with the username of User so the location for the shortcut to be stored on my machines is in;

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

The only thing that needed to be done was append this '-K' to the Target where -K is Kiosk mode and the IP Address is that of my server (make sure you use your own).

and I have attached a zipped version for anybody that wants it.

Once this has all been done you just need to click on Write Filter Enable and the changes will be saved.

Hope this is of help.

It should work just fine on anything that uses Windows.
