Review:

If you're thinking about setting up a thin-client networking solution that's based on Citrix's popular MetaFrame technology, and you know little about MetaFrame now, Citrix MetaFrame for Windows Terminal Services: The Official Guide will make your day. More experienced and knowledgeable MetaFrame engineers probably will find this book lacking in expert-level tricks and techniques. Read this volume for the fundamentals; turn to other books (such as Todd W. Mathers's excellent Windows NT/2000 Thin Client Solutions: Implementing Terminal Services and Citrix MetaFrame) for deeper wisdom.

After providing a primer on Windows Terminal Services and the design of Citrix's thin-client solution, the book approaches MetaFrame work as a consultant might. It walks through the design issues that are presented by an organizational MetaFrame implementation (also known as a corporate application service provider, or corporate ASP), and helpfully provides you with ammunition to use against standard objections (single point of failure, dependence on the network, and so on). Then, it discusses the implementation challenges of specific corporate ASP requirements, such as file services, printing capability, application sharing, and different user profiles. Text explanations are enhanced via conceptual diagrams, stepped procedures, lists of Registry settings, and script listings. --David Wall

Topics covered: Citrix MetaFrame and Windows Terminal Services as a means of providing thin-client application sharing across a geographically distributed organization. With an eye toward large-scale rollout by a consultancy or an internal information technology team, how to provide file, application, and other resource sharing securely and cost-effectively is explained.
