Netview 7.1.4 FP04
AIX 5.2 ML 6
I'm testing different netview access for the our users.
Currently, 3 groups use Netview. I created 3 separate userids as each
group has a PC designated for Netview:
telnet to the AIX server à xterm into
Netview (bring up default r/o map).
1) I've been able to login through the web browser.
log in as userX and ok.
Now, I looked over other posts and IBM website, and came across
the web console.
2) I installed on my XP desktop
nvwcinstall.exe file from http://netview:8080/download/
I logged in as userX and it looks the same as the web browser (1 above)
From you experience, how are your users logging. Is there any major
difference between the web console and the web browser?
Primarily all users are here in the same building as the Netview
server. On occasions, if we are working from home then we may VPN (but very few
people have vpn access).
1) Which method provides the least amount overhead on the Netview
2) In either method, Can multiple users/pc access Netview using the
same group id or should I create individual ids as needed. For example,
Tom in Support Group uses Netview id "suppgrp" on their group
Netview station. His office is away from the Netview station and he wants to
see the map. Could he also log in as "suppgrp" from a pc in his cube?
