Citrix MetaFrame can deliver Windows-based applications to any user, anywhere regardless of network connection, LAN protocol, or client operating system. Configuring Citrix MetaFrame for Windows 2000 Terminal Services is written for system administrators who are deploying Citrix MetaFrame in a Windows 2000 environment. It examines MetaFrame's newest features and enhancements, as well as Citrix’s Independent Computing Architecture (ICA). It explores how ICA, in conjunction with MetaFrame, will transform the way in which software is developed, deployed, and maintained in server-based computing environments. Finally, the book shows how to integrate Windows- and Unix-based networks over the Web using MetaFrame.
An increasing number of companies are designing and implementing Remote Access Networks, which allow users who are not physically connected to a Wide Area Network (WAN) or Local Area Network (LAN) to access the network’s servers, applications, and databases or to participate in video conferencing and conference calls. The ability for a remote user to function as if they were in the next office dramatically improves overall efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership. Cisco Systems, the world's largest internetworking vendor, is the pioneer of the enabling technologies for Remote Access Networks. This book will identify and explain all of the Cisco products necessary for designing and building a remote access network and integrating it with legacy systems.
Covers the key protocols involved in the technology area of Cisco remote access networks. Provides the reader with instruction on interconnecting central sites to branch offices, as well as technical connectivity considerations. Softcover.
