Overview: Managing Terminal Viewers

Terminal Viewers allows you to provide secure access to host applications through a Web-based interface. Terminal Viewers is installed as a component of Management and Control Services (MCS), which allows you to take advantage of common MCS functionality, such as directory services for managing users and groups. In addition, you can access and manage all host access configurations either locally or from a remote machine, and provide users and groups access to those configurations.

You can use Terminal Viewers to create and manage Java terminals, ActiveX terminals, HotGUI terminals, file transfer tools, host printers, Terminal Layouts, and Host Graphics configurations for distribution to users over an intranet or the Internet.

When you finish creating a configuration, a default presentation is automatically created for you. It is the presentation that you assign and deploy to users. You can also set permissions to allow users to modify and save changes to configuration properties (such as display and keyboard remapper settings).
