Then it's highly doubtful that the NT server is the bottleneck. With the
application running on the client, and no DBMS involved, NT is just file
serving.

Well, this is mainly an application issue. MAS90 & Peach-Tree are pretty
much stand-alone PC apps that are tweaked to allow simultaneous access over
a network. MAS200 is the higher end client/server product that runs against
an DBMS.

It's possible, using Cytrix and/or Terminal Server.

But I understand what you're saying. I've found that most Win32 application
developers have a single-user mindset. Having never used a true multi-user
system like the AS/400, they lack the experience to build an application the
proper way.
