Windows NT Terminal Server and Citrix MetaFrame is a technical reference that details all aspects of planning, installing, administering, and troubleshooting Microsoft Terminal Server and Citrix MetaFrame systems. MetaFrame greatly enhances the usability of NT as a thin-client solution, but the heterogeneous networking issues involved in its integration will be a significant source of information pain. Part I begins with an in-depth look at the technology, and how its relevant to the NT administrator. This material is not an overview, but more preparatory material for real-world administration. Part II goes into the real nuts and bolts of thin client administration, covering such relevant issues as installation, configuration, network connection, management, and application distribution. Part III covers the most difficult issues involving thin client administration. This book addresses the real world issues you face, on a case-by-case basis, with tools and advice on solving them.

Review:

Despite the heavy pro-Windows and anti-Java biases of author Ted Harwood, Windows NT Terminal Server and Citrix MetaFrame proves once again that entries in the New Riders networking book series are not to be missed. Both knowledgeable and pragmatic, Harwood capably guides you through all aspects of Terminal Server and MetaFrame, from market background to installation to application.

Divided into three parts, not including the appendices, this book begins with an overview section. Within the overview, the author draws the distinctions and overlaps between thin clients, Windows terminals, and Net PCs and explains the situations in which such solutions make sense. In addition, chapters are devoted to the architectural differences between Terminal Server and Windows NT Server 4 as well as Citrix MetaFrame. These pages are particularly important, as they outline the features inherent to the product--such as automated local device redirection and the ability to allow non-Windows clients to access Terminal Server--and whether or not it is appropriate for your network situation.

Part 2 deals exclusively with installation, configuration, and administration. This section showcases some of the book's best features, such as real-word tips and top 10 lists. The last section of the book delves into implementing real-world solutions in a Terminal Server/MetaFrame environment. Topics covered include remote access, incorporating non-Windows clients, load balancing, and application publishing. -Sarah L. Roberts-Witt
