Good Bye Application Zone… Hello AccessPad!
The Mac Application Zone has been replaced with AccessPad. AccessPad will automatically download (using the Java downloader) and launch when using ApplicationZone.html, or when the Application Portal is configured to use the native client.
AccessPad for Mac include a universal printer for RDP and Blaze connections. See chapter on printing for more details.
NOTE: The following features are not supported by AccessPad: Session Disconnect/Reconnect, Server failover, HostView, and Desktop/Start-menu shortcut icons. Look out for additional features in future versions.
Browse to the Application Zone URL (or the Application Portal with native mode enabled):
A login prompt will appear. Verify that the Server address is correct and enter the user's credentials.
Once logged in, the AccessPad will appear with available connections.
The user simply clicks or taps the desired connection to launch it.
When exiting Mac AccessPad, all active connections will be closed.
NOTE: In order to view changes to the application set, the user must logoff AccessPad and back in to refresh the application list. This behavior may change in future versions.
AccessPad Menu bar
The AccessPad menu bar contains four useful functions:
Returns to the main list
Return to the parent folder list
Displays version number, installation folder, PowerTerm WebConnect server address, and username that is currently logged in.
NOTE: If changes are made to the user’s application set, the user must logoff and log back into AccessPad to see the changes.
