GW8 PO

I am in a situation where we use 1 webacc server for multiple PO's. Will
this weekend be upgrading the main site to GW2012. The remote site has to
stay at GW8 which has a secondary domain and a post office. Will the GW2012
webacc be able to access the GW8 po still or will that no longer work. I
have been trying to find something in the docs on this.

Thanks for any help.

    2012 Web Access cannot access a v8 PO. Think of WebAccess as another
    client. Clients cannot be newer than the PO they access.

  • That won't work. The GW 2012 WebAccess needs GW 2012 POA's to talk to. You can, of course, move the whole mess to 2012 and leave the clients at GW 8 ( in terms of desktop clients ) so they will be unaware it happened. But I suppose that the issue is more one of the server being something not so 2012 compatible.

    You got it. We have a Netware server running gw8. Waiting on another server
    at this point to do it I suppose.
