[THIN] Re: OneWorld on a 2003 TS

Really, no problems with home directories across the WAN in NT4?  That
surprises me.

OneWorld does a lot with reading/writing to ini files at startup and
in normal operation.  I would expect reporting and printing are much
slower with the home directories on the WAN also.

At least this part is most likely not an application issue, but an
architecture issue.  OneWorld can be a hog and is nearly unusable in a
WAN environment.  This is why most if not all WAN deployments are via
Citrix - you can keep your client and server on the same fast subnet.

Hope that helps,

Christopher
