Can you use IBM® Rational® ClearQuest® non-Web clients over a wide area network (WAN) or virtual private network (VPN)?
Using the local client software to work with ClearQuest in a WAN environment or over a VPN is not supported. The performance in this environment is likely to be unsatisfactory, and could also cause database corruption if there is a connection problem.
ClearQuest Web and ClearQuest MultiSite are specifically designed for WAN implementations and can be considered as viable alternatives. ClearQuest MultiSite allows ClearQuest clients to work with local replicas of their ClearQuest databases rather than accessing servers in remote locations.
