I purchased a SQL license, however I have found if you use MSDE it is much easier to get tech support. Currently we are using MSDE, I plan on doing a reload using the typical install. ________________________________ From: thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of M Sent: Thursday, October 07, 2004 4:01 PM To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [THIN] Re: Initial review of Wyse Rapport 4.4 Thanks for this post Trevor. As a matter of interest, is your Rapport Database SQL or MSDE ? Regards ----- Original Message ----- From: Trevor Fuson <mailto:fuson@xxxxxxx> To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, October 07, 2004 11:35 PM Subject: [THIN] Initial review of Wyse Rapport 4.4 The installation worked without manual tweaking and multiple re-installs which is a welcome change. Unfortunately there is still no Server 2003 support, the latest O/S you can reliably run Rapport on is still Server 2000. Rapport does support Windows XP, however it doesn't work reliably because of the 10 concurrent TCP connection limitation in the O/S. The auto configuration of FTP server still gives anonymous users write access to the FTP server, so you will still need to ensure that you lock down the server after the installation is finished. Device discovery greatly improved with IP range walking and a new dialog box that includes a progress bar and more information about the status of the device discovery. The product itself seems much more solid, there is less flickering and redrawing when switching between management screens. I will be testing the multiple device update capabilities later and let you all know how it goes, the release notes state that the FTP transfer reliability has been improved and I really want to see if they have fixed this problem. In addition I am curious if they have fixed the CE device configuration bugs. So far it looks like there has been huge improvement in terms of the reliability of the product. Trevor.
