1 Remote Connectivity to XA R7/R9 Power-Link & Net-Link Denise Burns (423)

2 Agenda 1.Summary of Remote Connectivity Options 2.Review of Each Option –Features –Hardware/Software requirements 3.Pros/Cons of Options 4.Demo of each Option 5. How We Can Help

3 Summary of Options XA XAX Power-Link Power-Link to Terminal Server/ Citrix Net-Link

4 Power-Link direct on WAN –Easiest option if you have enough bandwidth Depends on number of users, applications, size of database, etc. –Client needs memory, 1 GB minimum –Total network performance is critical Hubs, switches, cabling, etc. XA

5 Power-Link direct on WAN Performance can be ‘tweaked ’: –Remote fix server Reduces startup time Reduces effort to update clients –Utilize preferences to tailor user views and subsets minimize subsets that bring up all records, i.e. IMHIST, items, orders XA PC Server

6 Power-Link via Terminal Server –Remote user logs into Terminal Server Terminal Server installed at iSeries location –Faster response time than running Power-Link client remotely –Terminal Services application included in Windows Server operating system –Must buy CAL for each user XA Terminal Server

7 Power-Link via Terminal Server –Windows Terminal Server with user CAL’s: OS – Windows 2000, 2003 or Terminal Server CAL’s are approximately $80 each –Power-Link client on Terminal Server requires 100+ MB disk space (each env.) and minimum of 256 MB RAM XA Terminal Server

8 Net-Link –Faster response time than running Power-Link client over same bandwidth remotely –Auxiliary Server Required: OS – Windows 2000, 2003 or 2008 Minimum hardware – P4, 2.8 GHz, 1 GB RAM (more recommended) –Allow 2 GB of memory for every 50 Net-Link users XA Auxiliary Server

9 Pros/Cons – Power-Link Power-Link via Terminal Server Full functionality of Power-Link software ≠Additional server required for Terminal Services ≠Terminal Server CAL required for each user Approximate cost $80/each If performance is not acceptable with Power-Link:

10 Pros/Cons - Net-Link ≠Subset of Power-Link functionality –Probably not appropriate for Power User –Might be fine for limited/inquiry user Utilizes less bandwidth with faster response time compared to Power-Link Connection can be through VPN or external address can be set up in firewall for a connection from internet No additional installation or software licensing required ≠Requires Auxiliary Server running a set of processes for every 50 Net-Link users

11 Demonstration: Power-Link Power-Link with Terminal Server Net-Link

12 How We Can Help Power-Link via WAN –Install remote fix server 1 day to implement if server OS is installed Power-Link via Terminal Server –Install Terminal Server –1 - 2 days to implement

13 How We Can Help Net-Link –Install Auxiliary Server –Assist network administrator with configuration of Net-Link for external access (across internet) –1 day to implement Other –Analyze network infrastructure and troubleshoot connectivity problems/performance issues

14 Questions ?? Thank you!!
