The configuration process
The following table lists the protocols that SilkTest can use for each of the
platform types.
There is no limit on the protocol or API an application under test may use.
Just make sure that the protocol required by SilkTest and the protocol
required by your application are running at the same time.
The configuration process
To configure a network of computers so that they can run SilkTest and its
Agents, you must do the following:
Install (or have already running) networking protocols supported by
SilkTest.
Install SilkTest on the host machine and the Agent software on all target
machines.
Establish connectability between host and Agents. This may be
automatic or may require some setup, depending on circumstances.
Enable networking on any PC-based target machines; use the Agent
window as described in "One or more remote applications" on page 355.
Enable networking on the host machine. Use the Runtime Options
dialog; details vary, depending on your configuration.
