AFAIK, you need to install the Base portion, no matter what. Contrary to
what I usually say about this kind of thing, it's one of the "benefits" of
using servers, I suppose.

You *might* try using the Graphical Access pieceóno additional license.
It's "OK", but lacks the neat features of PC5250. Personally, I'd not want
to lose PC5250.

Maybe get the Personal Communications *product*, separately from CA. Anyone
used this approach?
