WSAM v Network Connect


WSAM v Network Connect

I am thinking about deploying WSAM as opposed to Network Connect (NC) for our Corporate Laptop users.

These guys only ever use Citrix or their local Outlook client.

As I want to rollout the Virtual Keyboard I don't like the idea that this could be bypassed via the min web portal for the NC client.

Can anyone foresee any issues with the switch in terms of reliabilty etc?

In my experience WSAM is much more reliable than NC. The only issue I've ever had with WSAM is with NetBIOS file sharing not working reliably.

For that use-case it sounds like that would work just fine

The only thing to be careful of in a switch like that is making sure there is nothing that is doing server-initiated connections (e.g. VoIP or possibly IM).
