    Thick and Thin Client Combinations

    Brian Hughes

      I'll likely end up opening an SR to sort through this.  I upgraded my server to 2010 SP2 and my client to 2010 SP2 on SW 2010 SP2.1 x64.  Normally I connect while on the LAN or via VPN.  It works great.

       

      So, I set up the Web Portal for EPDM 2010 some time around 2010 SP0.  I was using it in our training lab and on a different computer in my office.

       

      Now, I was down at SWW2010 and decided I wanted to really give the Web Contributor a run for it's money.  I logged in with my laptop over the web without VPN!  It worked great, especially since the hotel had a 5 mbit synchronous connection.

       

      Odd thing happened though, I can't get that vault (yes just 1/4 testing vaults) to switch back to the CAD Editor / Thick Client Contributor display.  All my icons for that vault are blue still.  Seems to me one should be able to just swap back and forth willy nilly, because I had tested this in the office on another machine without issue.

       

      Any advice from the 'cloud' on this one folks?

          In Windows Explorer, under the tools menu, select 'Work online' while in the vault view.

            I will like to add to this senario if i may ...

             

            Enterprize has a notification feature allowing users to notify others when something needs approval or to request you to review.

             

            Your the recipient of this notification and the only machine you have does not have a thick client injstalled. you get this notification which has nice links embedded in to it so you can click on them for viewing / approval ....etc. The only problem is the links link it to a local vault view which is only viewable via a thick client.

             

            how do you change the notification template so that the link links back to your web client (web addressable) so that users without a thick client can view / approve?

             

            Has anyone done this?
