Thin Client Change Log

5.3.0
-----
TCP/IP V6 support
- set UseIPV6=TRUE in [ServerConfig] on server and client
- if UseIPV6=TRUE set on server but not on client this will work on Vista and later (2 server/ports needed pre-Vista)
- IPV6 address should be enclosed in [] for ProxyServer entry if http tunnelling is being used

5.2.67
------
Ignore DestinationDir if path included in file to be copied to/from client
If DestinationDir specified a path should be specified for LogFileName

5.2.66
------
Return 2 if file exists but cannot be accessed from copy-file-to-server
Disallow sp2tccli AVC if DestinationDir set (unless it's set to ".")

5.2.65
------

5.2.64
------

5.2.62
------

5.2.61
------

5.2.60
------
Environment variables (%var%) may be included in DestinationDir and LogFileName to direct files to a non-protected system folder
eg. DestinationDir=%LOCALAPPDATA%\sp2tc
This folder will be added to the PATH so that dll's, panel files, etc. will be located properly
Set CopyToDestinationDir=TRUE to target DestinationDir with copy-file-to-client, etc.

5.2.54
------
Problem with printserver changes in unix/vms

5.2.53
------

Printserver changes
-------------------
Use this to specify a printserver in server sp2tc.ini rather than an environment variable:
[ServerConfig]
PrintServerIP=127.0.0.1
PrintServerPort=5001
This allows regular clients and a separate printserver to be used in the same program.  If this is the case make sure SP2 is called before QPR in the program.
