Terminal Server Administration Tools


Reputable Poster
Hi there :

I've been reading all your comments on Windows Terminal Server and
its capabilities and risks for OneWorld administration.
I fully agree that the ideal situation is to work on the actual
Deployment or Enterprise console, but sometimes that's not possible or
For example, I've been using VNC, RADMIN (a Russian shareware), Control
IT, W2K Terminal Server client and PCAnywhere.
According to my personal experience, PCAnywhere was a horror story;
but Control IT, VNC and RADMIN have all been reliable and performant.
Three months ago, I've started a B7331 to Xe update on an account where
it was impossible to install anything apart from JDE requirement list.
Deployment and Enterprise were both 3 km (2 miles) away from the
company bureau. So, during the CDs installation I had to walk those
miles a couple of times.
The servers stand on a "chair-less" freezing crystal box, and the idea
of standing still there during long hours was not pleasant to me.
So, I've decided to (or was forced to!) give a chance to the WTS client.
Ran the full migration process (except BusBuild) from a WTS client, and
had no problem at all. All planner, workbench, TC and merge ran fine!
I always prefer to work in front of the actual server console, but it's
cool to know that some other possibilities are available too.
