Step 4: Specifying Auxiliary Files and Deployment Settings

The Auxiliary Files And Deployment Settings screen lets you embed auxiliary files in the deployment project and choose different deployment options.

Auxiliary files are individual files that are used by HostExplorer products to save a variety of settings not contained in a session profile, such as color schemes, macros, file transfers, toolbars, and translation tables. Each time you modify any of these settings, the system automatically creates an auxiliary file. Deployment Wizard displays all previously created auxiliary files. By including these files in your project, you can extend the functionality of the HostExplorer product installation for end users.

To choose auxiliary files:

  1. In the Select Auxiliary Files area, expand the desired category.
  2. Click the desired file(s). You can choose multiple files from multiple categories. You can choose all of the files in a category by selecting the initial check box for that category.
      A project can display multiple toolbars. In the Select Auxiliary Files area, select only the toolbars that you want to display.

To specify how HostExplorer is deployed:

In the Deploy HostExplorer Session As list, choose one of the following options:

  • Active Document—Allows the application hosted in an Active Document to share the user interface with the Active Document hosting the application (for example, Internet Explorer). This option provides end users with the HostExplorer toolbar and menu (available for display sessions only).
  • ActiveX Control—Displays a host session to an end user and allows interaction with the host. This option provides end users with the HostExplorer toolbar but not the menu bar.
  • HostExplorer Window—Displays the session to the end user in the HostExplorer window instead of in a browser. If this option is selected, all components are installed on first access. The end user cannot install components on demand.

To specify how HostExplorer appears for end users:

If you chose ActiveX Control in the Display Session Using list, specify the following options:

  • 100% Browser’s Content—Uses the end user’s entire browser window to display HostExplorer.
  • Session Position/Size—Sizes HostExplorer in the end user’s browser window to the dimensions you specify (in pixels). The Top and Left settings determine the position of the top left corner of the HostExplorer user interface. The Width and Height settings determine the size of the user interface. After HostExplorer is deployed, the user can modify the size and position of the browser window. When the user closes the window and opens it again, the browser appears in the same size and position.
      Netscape browsers do not support the Session Position/Size option. The HostExplorer terminal occupies the full screen in Netscape.

To hide the web browser toolbar when HostExplorer is deployed:

  1. In the Deploy HostExplorer Session As list, select Active Document.
  2. Select Hide Browser Toolbar box.
