4.1. Network Topology

Sun Ray Software supports various network configurations, but a shared network is recommended. A shared network is where the Sun Ray server and desktop clients are part of a Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN) and where network services such as DHCP and DNS are already provided by existing servers. The same security considerations for standard shared networks apply to a shared network used for a Sun Ray environment. See Planning a Sun Ray Network Environment in the Administration Guide for details.
