Hello Joy

We looked at this a year or so ago, back then costs hardware costs put us
off, perhaps I should revisit.

Does anyone or has anyone considered using a wireless handheld PDA to
access Vantage....? Using Citrix? Any thoughts? We will be doing
some research, but thought we would get some interesting input from
the list.

Thanks in Advance,

Joy

Terminal services would work, but you'd need to create a custom application
to fit the information onto a PDA screen. With the stock client you'd end
up having your people spending all of their time scrolling on the PDA TS
desktop to get any information. Another idea is to use some sort of PDA
client database and sync up with Vantage over your wireless connection.
ThinkDB ( www.thinkingbytes.com <http://www.thinkingbytes.com> ) has some
pretty cool ways of doing this stuff.

I've successfully tested wireless Vantage access using Citrix 1.8 Metaframe
over a 802.11a (Intel Pro 5000) WLAN on a Intermec 6651 handheld.
The intended use is material transactions from our Hi-Lo's: raw material
issues, shipping and receiving...

For performance purposes I suggest researching each of the following
Wireless standards: 802.11b, 802.11a, 802.11g
http://80211-planet.webopedia.com/TERM/8/802_11.html for starters.

Feel free to contact me off channel for additional information.
