Deploying Apps To Remote Users

Deploying Apps To Remote Users

Deploying Apps To Remote Users


i have an issue with trying to deploy apps via ZEN to users who connect to the office via VPN.  The users can login to ZEN via the middle tier server to have applications deployed to them via the application launcher. The problem I have is that each of the applications errors with a message that it could not deploy. I think it is something to do with drive mapings.....

Each of these apps work fine if you are connected to the network in the office with the relevent drive mapings.

How can I get the same apps to deploy to the VPN users as if they were in the office?  We are looking at deploying MS Office to these users via ZEN.



RE: Deploying Apps To Remote Users

Please provide info on your hosts OS.  

I need to know what OS and SP level the Middle-Tier and the Backend server are running, what version of ZfD and SP level you are using.

Are you only using the ZFD agent on clientless PC's? or are you trying to use the Web interface for deployment?

Are the apps workstation or user associated?

RE: Deploying Apps To Remote Users


I am running ZenWorks 6.5 SP1 on Netware 6.5 SP1. The version of the Application Launcher is and we are using the ZFD agent to deploy the apps and they are user associated. Each of the machines have Novell Client 4.91 and each of the remote users login to workstation only and then connect to the office via ADSL VPN link.

At this point they would login to the Zen middle tier server to get the apps.
