We have a Lansa based application that is client/server based. Visual Lansa on the PC's, Server code on the AS/400. We have to deploy the DLL's to the Pc's for upgrades, changes, etc. Lansa has a "Deployment Tool" that distributes new and changed DLL's to PC's when they connect, much like AOL downloads stuff when you connect. Right now it only runs on Nt/2000. So, my customers who buy Iseries and want to run deployment tool buy the integrated PC Card. _________________ Art Tostaine, Jr. CCA, Inc.
