PDMLynx operates on a Client/Server model. The server holds all the data files providing every user access to this common data repository.
Microsoft Windows operating systems: NT4, 2000, XP, Server 2003,
Vista, or Windows 7.
Shared storage space accessible by all PDMLynx populated machines
PDMLynx Security Policy
Document access security is realized through PDMLynx user access rights; individual workstation/server security policies and through the use of hidden shares to a common server. Since PDMLynx launches applications on workstations with target documents existing on a common server, each workstation needs to have server access.
PDMLynx does not control workstation/server security policies. Though workstation access can be read-only for users with view-only PDMLynx rights, document editors must have read/write access.
Document retention security is realized through judicious server backup practices. PDMLynx does not handle this function.
