Chris / John, First an little background then some questions. I am assuming that you want to use WDSc from home (or remotely) to develop applications (Web, RPG, COBOL, Java, ...) in addition to using it at the office. For the remote scenario there are currently two different ways that I know of to do this: 1. Install WDSc on the remote PC and connect to your office network using VPN or some other secure means of communication (or dial up!) 2. Install WDSc on a Windows server running Windows terminal services or some 3rd party equivalent and from your remote PC run a Windows emulation from the server. This however would also require a VPN. The Eclipse workbench based tools should run fine in this environment, but CODE tools do not run in a multi-user Windows environment. Now my questions : ) I am not familiar with the SunONE portal you described below. Does your remote development fall into either of these scenario's above? It seems like you are trying to run WDSc from a Web Application Server and have clients access the tools via a Web browser? Perhaps like Lotus Notes for the Web or iSeries Access for the Web? Currently WDSc needs to be installed on the PC where is running and does not support the browser as an interface for remote development. This is a development time statement, not to be confused with using WDSc to develop Web applications that can be accessed via a web browser at runtime. Please provide more information about the scenario you are trying to use. We are very interested in trying to make WDSc work in all of the different network / remote scenarios. Thanks.

Here's some answers to your questions that I got from our network guys. IBM, could you help us with this???? Thanks! Chris Could you first clarify (technically) what you exactly mean by portal ? SunONE Portal 6.0 with Secure Remote Access Pack Basically we plan on using this portal remotely for accessing the AS/400. It is capable of running any application that is "web enabled" or an application that can be redirected to a local port. Obviously it is not a portal website like 'Yahoo' ? It can be. That is what Yahoo is using or their Web Site. Or do you mean it's a VPN ? We will utilize the capabilities to achieve similar results as a VPN. For example: Remote File Access, Remote Host Access and E-mail and Calendaring. -----Original Message----- From: Paul Nicolay [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Thursday, October 31, 2002 9:14 AM To: email@example.com Subject: Re: RE: [WDSCI-L] (no subject) John, Could you first clarify (technically) what you exactly mean by portal ?
