Once you establish a connection to a target machine, any action you initiate on the host machine, which is the machine running Silk Test Classic, is executed on the target machine.
With the Classic Agent, one Agent process can run locally on the host machine, but in a networked environment, the host machine can connect to any number of remote Agents simultaneously or sequentially. You can record and replay tests remotely using the Classic Agent. If you initiate a Record/Testcase command on the host machine, you record the interactions of the user manipulating the application under test on the target machine. In order to use the Record menu’s remote recording operations, you must place the target machine’s name into the Runtime Options dialog box. Choose .
With the Open Agent, one Agent process can run locally on the host machine. In a networked environment, any number of Agents can replay tests on remote machines. However, you can record only on a local machine.
