MS/TS vs Citrix

Ok, I know that this has been argued before... but I am interested in your
recommendations.

Which is better (and why) MS Terminal Services or Citrix? With/without
active directory?

Whatever suggestions you can provide will be greatly beneficial... and I
will read everything (I am good at that).

Recommend away...

daniel,
you are probably not getting any responses due to the fact that virtually no one runs terminal server without citrix in the one world community. citrix is simply a set of enhancements that sits on top of terminal server. you can't have citrix without terminal server but you can run terminal server without citrix.
i put terminal server & citrix in over two years ago and am hard pressed to remember what the advantages are anymore. certainly better tools for managing users and smaller bandwidth requirements are among them.

MS Terminal Services is more suite if the client environment is on windowing
platform already (Windows 95/98) as it can only be connected using windows.
with Citrix, your client may be unix, mac, os/2, windows, dos, etc. but if
you have a lot of remote sites to be connected to JDE OW, then citrix would
be more recommended as it takes 20% less bandwidth than MS Terminal
Services.

Hello Daniel !

Long time no see - hows the implementation going ?

Many will argue the positives and negatives around ICA and RDP - my view is that ICA should be used because it provides seamless integration with your users desktops, reduces network traffic - and increases management functionality.

However - to your question about Active Directory versus standard Windows Domain security. The answer would be that JDE doesn't really care. Obviously one should be looking to migrate to Active Directory in the mid-long term - AD provides scalability and reliability and integrates extremely well with enterprise software such as MS Exchange etc. AD will become extremely important _eventually_ - however, there is no rush to migrate towards it. I know of many, many companies that have implemented Win2000 defacto standards - but initially retain their NT Domain structures. This works fine (though I am sure MS would LOVE everyone to jump to their new licensing models)

So - JDE is not the push behind Active Directory here. Windows 2000 is certainly a more reliable, and truly scalable OS - but Win2K works well with the older security model as well.
