WindX auto-download and Application Server
« on: November 25, 2020, 03:33:05 AM »
Hi all

Testing the thin-client systems for a client and it's been a while, so I'd like to be sure I'm not mistaken

The PxPlus WindX auto-download / synchronization of images, files and programs happens in the *start.up & *plus/start_up initialization procedure

When connecting to a Simple Client Server host, at the moment the start_up stuff executes, the line_switch has been done, TCB(88) is set and therefore the auto-sync happens
When connecting to an Application Server host, this is not the case, TCB(88) is not set when the start_up procedure executes, and no auto-sync happens at all

Am I missing something ?

This is on PxPlus 2020 (V17.10, 64 bits on W10) using a Software Development license

Thanks for any insight

Are you talking about the 'dynamic downloads' (parameter '+U') or the 'static downloads' (sync.conf file) ?  I've set up an application server (*appserv/config) and tried both, and they both work.

You're right, it works with APS  :-[

I was talking of both
The *plus/wdx/usr/<program> was working, but I messed up when I tested the other part

I was misled by my client shortcut not starting in the correct directory, and thus the static image files not downloaded where expected
So, I corrected my shortcut, re-tested this and found my images in the WindX\images directory as I wanted them to be.

Thanks  for the heads-up
