I work with dozens of Power Link installations, over a huge variety of VPN
connections. Citrix is really the only viable solution for fast response
times for many of these installations. Having said that I keep hearing
"7.8" will be better as far as network chatter and performance.

Power Link can run horrible depending on how many hops the traffic has to
go through from what I have been told by network experts. If you are
doing any Enterprise Integrator develoment over VPN, it can be a show
stopper (for example 25 minutes to generate host code). Having said that
a number of our smaller installs do run relatively efficient over VPN.

For global installations it's probably a requiremente (Citrix).

Again, a lot really probably depends on your network; so many variables.

For remote Enterprise Integrator development, remote desktop works well
fyi

Note I can probably put you in touch w/ a few customers that recently got
Citrix to work. It was a bit tricky but is working well now!

Good luck!

Roger,

What is the objective? Citrix seems like a lot of unnecessary overhead.
It
would be appropriate for XA prior to Release 7, but R7 is a thin Java
client
that only requires a browser to run.

You may want to see what the results will be with the java client
deployed
before going to the extra effort to create a Citrix server setup.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Need help setting up Power Link / Browser for CITRIX
users

As part of our implementation of Infor XA R7 client applications, we
need
to let our CITRIX (thin client) users have access.
We are working thru an instructions sheet from INFOR (Run R7 clients on
Citrix or Terminal Server ) that came with the note that "Technical
support for setting up Citrix or Terminal Server to run Link Manager and
Power-Link is not available ".

We created 2 XML files as instructed in the notes, but these do not seem
to
be used?
Create a file called MyReplicationProperties.xml that contains the
following and copy it to the /MAPICS/Web/LinkManager IFS directory on
the
iSeries host
Create a file called MyReplicationProperties.xml that contains the

iSeries host

Now, the original user can access INFOR XA PowerLink any where he wants
from our CITRIX server, but attempts to login as another user kicks-off
an
attempt to re-install this again. Is someone supporting CITRIX users
with
R7 PowerLink that might suggest what we are missing? Thanks
