Select a dial-up connection if you want to connect/disconnect it when a customer logs on/logs off. This is useful in case you have a remote terminal connected via GPRS, etc.
You can change options freely in the demo version TrueCafe. The options are protected with the unlocking code in the registered version.
Use the Background option to specify either a picture or web page to be displayed on the TrueCafe Client background when the terminal screen is locked, e.g:
C:\temp\picture1.jpg (local path on the terminal computer)
http://www.website.com (don't forget to specify http://)
A terminal is unlocked when a customer enters his name/password or a cyber cafe operator starts a customer session remotely. When the terminal is unlocked, the session information window appears. A customer can top-up his balance using a ticket, change his password, order a snack/drink or stop the session.
When a customer is logging in, the "Service package" list might appear. This depends on pricing configuration and happens if a customer doesn't have a default pricing package and there are more than one "Public" pricing packages. Please read the Pricing topic for more information.
You can use the following features to secure your terminals:
If you assign a terminal profile to a terminal, then a tab set with the applications is displayed. Double-click on any icon to start the application:
Hold Shift button when you double click on a program icon to start the program via "Run as... (administrator)".
When a customer session has a critical amount of time/money left, a warning dialog is displayed and/or a warning sound file is played. Use TrueCafe options to select your sound files to be played or specify whether the warning dialog must be displayed.
If the corresponding option is enabled, the confirmation dialog with pages/charge information is displayed when a customer prints a document.
Customers can order goods, drinks, etc. from computers where they sit. They select an item in the list of services you configure in pricing.
You can disable the "Order" button in TrueCafe options.
A customer can press the "Log Off" button to end his session and lock the terminal. The terminal is locked as well when a cyber cafe operator remotely ends the customer session in TrueCafe Administrator.
