If you don't mind me asking, what kind of application are you dealing with.  I 
know it is a custom application-but, what is it for?

That is somewhat promising news, particularly after Rick Mack's response <g>. I 
guess due diligence dictates that I throw up PS 4 (was that a Freudian slip?) 
and test the app over it. I have also implemented an evaluation of Provision 
Networks Provision Management Framework, so I will test over that as well. 
There is really not much choice in the matter; we will have to make it as 
painless as possible for the user as we have moved forward and re-structured 
our departments in support of the "new" way of doing things through the 
application. This came out of the demonstration of a prototype. The development 
team is also looking at ways they can minimize the detrimental effects of 
Flash. They had originally developed the app with all the bells and whistles 
and sliding windows and scrolling tickers and color gradations. Now that they 
have seen the effect on bandwidth, they are making some mods that they hope 
will decrease the bandwidth utilization.

I believe that PS4 adds significant gains in general browser image acceleration 
and in Flash support over XP. I canât speak to the bandwidth differences 
using Flash9/Flex, this seems like an issue that Adobe would need to address.

Subject: [THIN] Flash on MF XPe 1.0


I have a couple of questions for the list, both relating to Flash. We are 
currently making development changes to our internal application that runs on 
Citrix through a browser (IE is what we publish) and they are coding much of it 
with Adobe Flex, which uses Flash 9 on the server side. During the bandwidth 
testing we just completed, there was a 512% increase in bandwidth utilization 
between the original non-flash version of the app and the updated Flash 9/Adobe 
Flex version of the app. Our server side is MF XPe 1.0 FR3/SP4 on Server 2003 
(no SP1). The client side terminals are Wyse 3350, 3360, 3125 and S30 
terminals, so we have CE 2.12 to CE.Net and ICA 6.20 through 9.04. My questions 
are as follows:


1. Are there any tweaks or tunes that will help Flash run better in our current 

2. Are the changes between XP 1.0 and PS 4.0 from a Flash perspective enough to 
benefit users and reduce bandwidth? Note that we would likely have to fork over 
about $1.5 mill to update our environment as we passed on the SA and we would 
also have to upgrade about half of our terminals in order to get 9.x ICA client 


Any comments, ideas, suggestions, or alternatives would be greatly appreciated.
