This chapter describes various desktop client applications and plug-ins that simplify and expedite your daily work with Collaborator.
- In order to use any of Collaborator clients, your administrator must first install and configure the server part of Collaborator.
- Clients version number should be less or equal to server's version number. Old clients (versions 11.x and earlier) are incompatible with Collaborator server 12.0 and later. To work with it, you will need to upgrade your clients to version 12.0 or later. To find out what is the minimal version of clients supported by your Collaborator server, check the Minimum client build admin option.
- To use desktop clients when single sign-on authentication is enabled, users should generate login tickets and specify them in client connection settings instead of password.
