Installation Notes

Minimizing Disk Space Usage on Windows

If you are installing Terminal Viewers under Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.0, it is recommended that you use either the FAT32 or NTFS file system to minimize the amount of disk space consumed. FAT32 and NTFS support smaller cluster sizes than FAT16, which results in more efficient space allocation.


Known Issues

To configure Java Terminal Viewers, Management & Control Services (MCS) uses Java technology which requires certain graphical interface resources to be accessible. Make sure X Windows is installed and running before configuring Java Terminal Viewers in a UNIX environment.
