ECMS - Using WAF for Perceptive Content
This document explains WAF and its use for Perceptive Content users.
Windows Access Facility (WAF)
WAF is a Windows Terminal Server that provides supplemental access for Mac and Linux users to applications that are only available on the Windows platform.
At the request of the ECM/Imaging Team, WAF administrators have installed the current version of Perceptive Content for Imaging customers. If you primarily use a Mac OS X or Unix/Linux computer without the ability to run Windows applications, you can use WAF to run Perceptive Content. You will mostly have full functionality. Exceptions are highlighted below.
NOTE: You cannot use WAF for scanning purposes due to issues with the driver and software stack that is included with scanner hardware. The drive and software stack cannot be installed on the WAF.
NOTE: The WAF instructions below for connecting to WAF from a Mac OS X computer reference a Remote Desktop application. Mac OS X "El Capitan" apparently no longer provides a Windows Remote Desktop Connection application. Microsoft, however, does. It can be installed from the Apple Store. Either use the Apple Store (search for Remote Desktop) on your Macintosh or follow this link to the Apple Store.
