RE: Citrix or Checkpoint VPN Client

Actually, the philosophy of Citrix and Firebox are directly opposite.
With Citrix, almost all the computing is done remotely.  For sighted users, 
"frames" are relayed back and forth, with the computing done largely remotely.
With Firebox, the client is still doing most of the work.  The applications 
still reside locally, i.e., MS Office resides on the C drive. Network-type disk 
operations, instead of going to a network server, are trapped and piped over 
the Internet to a remote server.  That includes even the contact list in 
Outlook such that server data (such as internal email addresses at the office) 
I would normally get by virtue of being logged-in at the office is piped 
through the Internet to my PC.
JAWS resides locally only.  There is no need for a remote installation of JAWS 
on a Citrix server.
It is simple and elegant.

I cringe to hear this. We're supposed to be switching to Citrix in the near 
future. Does Firebox do essentially the same thing?

Jessica:
I'm not using Citrix any longer.  We now use something called FireBox, which is 
installed on my laptop.  It is utterly fantastic.
To use Citrix, JAWS has to be installed both locally and at the Citrix server.  
There is specific documentation, but even then it can be tricky.
I was, at one time, pretty chummy with technical support at Freedom Scientific 
(escalation level) when I was running JAWS and Citrix.  I kept losing the 
authorization at the remote installation.  Freedom Scientific really is pretty 
good.  If you tell them you are attempting to connect remotely using Citrix, 
most of the technical support people will send you to escalation pretty fast.

Hi,
We are trying to get JAWS 12.0 to work with either Citrix or Checkpoint VPN for 
a remote transcriptionist.
Neither will work- when we launch a session Jaws does not read any of the 
screen.
Does anyone have experience with setting up Jaws with Citrix or Checkpoint VPN?
Thanks in advance,
Jessica
