[Athen] Networking AT Software

Hi Lorna,
We have developed a basic AT build that serves out licenses for JAWS,
ZT, Read and Write Gold, and WYNN. It makes the AT available most
places on campus via the student's campus log-in: we just add their
account to the users (we've had some difficulty with the dorms...).

Everything seems to run fine, although of course it is slower in
loading. Having the server doing the license checking is sweet, and
doing upgrades and patches is easier.

I cannot address K3000 as we are not currently using that software.

I'm throwing this out to ATHEN guru's:

Are most of the commonly used programs i.e., JAWS, Kurzweil 3000,
ZoomText run on a server to # of users or is the JAWS software
individually installed on SSD student lab computers or both?

We've installed JAWS on one IT server, and want to network (SSD owned)
current JAWS licensing (10 seats) for use around campus labs. Also
thinking to do the same with Kurzweil and ZoomText.

Your input is appreciated. Thanks.
