I am a long time user of KWF. I have always installed it on a Windows Server product (i.e. W2K, W2K3). I have a customer now that is trying to keep the cost to a minimum. So... I am considering implementing a KWF solution for him installed on a Windows XP machine.

Questions:
How will XP limit me as compared to Windows Server?
- outbound connection limit?
- inbound connection limit?
- required services limit?
- number of workstations on the network? (there are about 10)
- Number of VPN connections in/out?

Any input would be welcomed.

Thanks,

-Frank

KWF and KMS are not limited by the operating system connection limits. KWF will run equally well on XP and 2003 without any issues about OS level connections.

XP has only a limit on connection to a share (10 users). There is no significant limit to the number of TCP/IP connections.

Additionally, I am considering running KWF on a Laptop to conserve space (could be put in the very small wiring closet between the DSL router and switch, without needing external keyboard, monitor, wires, floor/shelf space etc). Any probs with this?

Also, I am assuming that XP "Pro" would be a minimum (not Home) due to the ability to harden the OS using file permissions. Yes?

I would really like to sell a KWF installation to my client because I do believe in the product. But you gotta fit into the client's business plan ya' know! Smile

Thanks again...

As long as that laptop has 2 NIC ports, that would be fine.

Yes, I would recommend Pro.
