Reflection for the Web Installation Guide

Reflection for the Web terminal emulation software enables users to access IBM, UNIX, Unisys, OpenVMS, and HP data via a browser. Administrators use Management and Security Server (MSS) to centrally manage, secure, and assign Reflection for the Web sessions.

Reflection for the Web 13.1 includes Management and Security Server version 12.6 SP1.

Your Reflection for the Web license also entitles you to the Security Proxy (except the Limited Edition) and the Terminal ID Manager.

This guide walks you through the steps to install and upgrade to Reflection for the Web 13.1.
