John, I can't seem to find an S20 2178 on my lists.. Do you know what the batch CPW is for that machine.. Also, a connection of that speed would definetely be a problem. The machines that we are selling normally have a 100MB ethernet, a lot of memory and disk, and a beefy processor. That speed is like running the browser over a dial in connection. It is usable, but slow. For that many users (100 concurrent browser), your batch CPW would need to be at 1000 for good/great response time. Also, file size has a lot to do with performance of the product. Remember, it uses Client Access' ODBC driver. Note: I have heard that depending upon how you load the software (MAPICS and Client Access), you could be overlaying the later drivers. I think I heard that the IBM CA can sometimes load an older ODBC driver or administrator over a more current one. I would check that out as well.

John John, What size system are you running with that many browser users? Michael Yes I have an issue with the whole client server technology of MAPICS in that there is little support material out there for managing the environment. From set-up to recommendations for remote lines. We have about 10 remote sites running over 64/128K frame relay connections CIR of 16-48K. We are stilling having performance issues and the browser falling over. We have pretty well dealt with all the obvious network performance type issues but are cannot find any recommendations or guidelines on what is known work. We are running well over 100 people on the Browser on R5 of MAPICS. We have approached MAPICS to find out what ports are used on the AS400 for the applications and they haven't yet been able to provide this information in the mean time we have identified these ourselves.
