'Client' and 'Server' Toad features


#1

Does anyone use these?

What they do is enable you to install Toad on a server then run it from a client. It separates out the installation files into two different groups, putting the executable and DLL’s on another machine. The exe is run from a shortcut on the desktop which points to it.

The origin of these features is quite old. I’m wondering how many work this way.

We considered this option. But because of the fact that sometimes people work at
home or using Citrix, we decided for a full client install.

Hi Mark,

Does anyone use these?
The short answer is “no”. We do a full local client install.

We tried this at Home Hardware, but found it ran too slow because of the
executable on the network. We don’t use it anymore.

Ditto on the “work at home” bit for me, via VPN.

What’s the advantage of the client/server install? I was thinking maybe for
upgrading, but there would still need to be some actions taken on the
client, correct?

Back in the day it was put in as a way to share common sets of certain kinds of files, such as unix job scheduler scripts. Those are put on the server. But over time we didn’t keep up with this. We nearly removed this for 10.0 but they wanted to research and see if this was being used much first.

I suspect it will go away for the spring release
