Introduction to Rational Robot
1-14
Hosting Robot/Applications on a Terminal Server
Robot supports the following Terminal Server environments:
Citrix MetaFrame (WIN2K)/Citrix MetaFrame client
Microsoft Terminal Server (WIN2K)/Microsoft Terminal Server client
Windows 2000 Server
Windows Terminal Server (Windows NT4)
The server hosts both the application under test and Robot. Robot runs on the client
as a terminal server session. Rational Robot supports GUI script recording and
playback on the server or from the client. The TestManager Log Viewer edition can
be run from the server or from the client.
Robot requires floating licenses for terminal servers.
Starting Robot and Its Components
Before you start using Robot, you need to have:
Rational Robot installed. For information, see the Rational Desktop Products
Installation Guide
.
A Rational project. For information, see the Rational Suite Administrator's Guide.
Logging On
When you log onto Robot or one of its components, you provide your user ID and
password, which are assigned by your administrator. You also specify the project to
log onto.
NOTE: Make sure that the screen resolution for the client matches the screen
resolution on the server.
