I can see, that despite very good ADS performances, when using it on quick
LAN network throrugh ADSDBE, it is not competitive to competitive products,
when using in remotly on slow DSL lines of around 1Mb transfer rate.

There is no question about ADS efficiency, not at all, it si very quick, but
record oriented communication with server in comparison with true SQL
approach is much slower.

On the other hand remote desktop is fast enough, but demands dedicated
computers on the other side of the wire.

I was adviced, to use Citrix or Terminal Services in ssuch cases, but have
no experience with them.

My question is, what those softwares do exactly ?

Do they represent some kind of multisession interface on the server (MS
SBS2003 in my case), that would allow to run my program on the phisical
server computer many times, save memory of used .DLLs, taht would be started
more than one time, and offer remote users desktop approach to the program
interfaces.

I assume, that server would need at least two proccessors, one for multi
desktop (program run) and another for ADS and other tasks.
Also I assume, that memory increase would be relevant in that case.

Can anybody please tell me a little bit more about ussage, possible
complications and limitations of such softwares and costs, of course.
Do I understand the functioning and ussage of mentioned programs (Cytrix,
for example) properly at all.

P.s.

On MS SBS 2003 I have problems with combo boxes inside my xBase++ and
eXpress++ program running directly on the server. Program just locks, when
combo box got focus. Is that a known bug, or that happens only to me ?

Best regards

Toma?

Hi

A late visitor here.

You can have a look at Citrix/TS alternatives like WinConnect, XPunlimited
etc. (honestly I figured out they are nothing but a Hack which was
techinically there in XP/2003). I am not sure if that is purposely planted
by MS ;)

I have not problem running Xbase++ applications using Express++ with
combo boxes under Windows 2003/Terminal Services/Citrix XP or 4.0
