Configuring the Printer[edit]

A tutorial to configure the printer can be found at ATcon's Add the Slave Printer to ADP.

Internals[edit]

Interally, ADP runs a very old version of a PICK[1]

database called ADP-PICK. Some vendors sell utilities that will allow you to access this outside of the traditional ADP medium:

w.e.b.Suite[edit]

Right click → About of the web applet that connects to the Elite system

The w.e.b.Suite application is a graphical web interface (written in PHP[2]) to the traditional Elite system. The underlying Elite is freely accessible through one of the tabs. The caveat here is the WS system deprecates the older dial-in interface in favor of a tcp-connection, VPN, or remote-desktop connection. Traditionally, ADP resold PC Anywhere, presently they use a secure VPN solution, presumably based on Securelink.

Normally, you would access an Elite System through ADP's standalone Reflection application; however, w.e.b.Suite uses a frame in application that is essentially a telnet client of sort for a web browser.

I've heard the w.e.b.Suite product referred to w.e.b.Suite 2000 (as compared to their totally different system w.e.b.Suite 1000). It remains unclear if ADP will officially market this as the 2000 series.
