 Pdox Win 5.0 on a Network / User Limits?
I am going to be installing a database that will be accessed by
50 users across a network.  They will be viewing the data and
creating reports only.  Pdox 5.0 Win for the Application, Novell
for the server.

Does anyone have an app this large on Novell? Any configuration
suggestions?  Can you run some of Pdox Win local like you could
in the DOS environment?

Thanks, as always, for any input.

        There aren't going to be any problems with that many people-
it'll work fine.

        You ought to have as much local as possible like Pdoxwin itself,
and static tables and forms, reports etc.

        That way things will be faster. You may also want to play with
max buff and min buff size in the IDAPI system area. This will allow
you to tweak how much of a table is sent across the network at one
time.

The most cost-effective method is to develop the application
with the full version of PDOX5.0 and then use PDOX5.0 Runtime
for the users. Runtime can be purchased once and used an
unlimited number of times. Make sure everyone is using the same
network control file (PDOXUSRS.NET) specified in IDAPI.CFG.

If all users need access to the full version of Paradox, then
you must purchase additional licenses for each user (which can
be expensive).
