  • Run Powerbasic programs on the internet without modifications

    Product: METAFRAME...software developed by the Citrix Corp.

    A vendor who sells Metaframe recently told us, "If your programs
    run under the windows operating system...they will run on the
    internet using Metaframe without having to make any modifications
    to your programs."

    Seems too good to be true!

    Has anybody had any experience running Powerbasic Console Compiler
    programs on the internet using Metaframe?
    Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    Microsoft and Citrix have jointly written a book on
    the subject called: Understanding Thin Client/Server Computing
    by Joel Kanter.

      SCO has a product for what is now being called application
      hosting. Citrix has changed its product to match the SCO model in
      that a resident terminal-mode software is not required.

              Mary,

              We have a Fractional T1 line that connects both the ohio office
              and our local office and we use Cytrix for the entire ohio office
              and then we use Windows NT Clients/95/98 for our local office in
              IL.

              Cytrix does allow any application to be run over our intranet.

              Currently we have Office Professional and our MRP system called
              MSS for Objects by Fourth Shift Corporation that is loaded on
              all PCs including Cytrix. It is a very nice system because
              it limits service calls, even though the users are in ohio they
              run the software that is stored remotely on our local servers.
              So if a user has a problem we usually fix it right over the
              phone or we just fed ex them a new pc, peice of cake.
