You can use any machine with a Java-enabled web browser compliant with JDK 1.1.3 or later as an Administration Station, as long as it can connect securely to the Screen using SKIP. The SunScreen 3.1 Lite includes SunScreen SKIP for both SPARC and x86 platforms. This allows any hardware running the Solaris 2.6, Solaris 7, or Solaris 8 operating environment to be an Administration Station.
Personal computers operating Windows 95, Windows 98, or NT 4.x with SKIP are supported platforms as an Administration Station, using the administration GUI. This chapter, however, covers Solaris-based Administration Stations only.
