  • Publication number: 20180375785
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing a connection of a client to an unmanaged service in a client-server remote access system. An unmanaged service may register at a remote access server and open a communication connection there between remote access server may be configured for providing remote access to the unmanaged service by a client. The remote access server receives keep-alive messages from the unmanaged service over the communication connection, which may serve to indicate that the unmanaged service is operational. The remote access server may a request for a client connection to the unmanaged service, after which, a terminate keep-alive message is communicated to the unmanaged service to terminate the sending of keep-alive messages from the unmanaged service in response to the request for the client connection to the unmanaged service.

  • Patent number: 10158701
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for enabling remote access to an application program via a computer network provided. Logical elements of the application program may be determined, from which a state model of the application program may be developed. A remote access program updates the state model in accordance with user input data received from a user interface program, generates control data in accordance with the updated state model and provides the same to the application program. The state model may be updated in accordance with application data received from the application program, application representation data in accordance with the updated state model are generated and provided to the user interface program for display at, e.g., a remote client computing device. The application program may be a legacy mainframe application to which remote access is provided without the need to modify the source code of the mainframe application.

  • Patent number: 9985913
    Abstract: A client-side flow control mechanism for controlling the flow of messages communicated from a service to a client in a remote access system. The service, which may be a managed or unmanaged service, may communicate messages to the client where the messages include a service sequence ID (SSI). As the client processes the messages from the service, the client responds with a client sequence ID (CSI). The SSI and CSI values determine the number of messages that are in transmission queues. The service compares a difference between the current SSI and CSI to a stop window value. If the difference is greater than the stop window value, transmission of messages from the service to the client is turned OFF. The client continues to send CSI acknowledgments as it processes messages. Once the difference falls below a start window value, the transmission of messages to the client is turned ON.

  • Publication number: 20180121217
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods and systems that provide for session storage in a remote access environment where a service application is remotely access by a client application. Session storage is in-memory, private local data store that uses key/value pairs to associate data with a particular session where data in the private local data store associated with the particular session is synchronized with the service application using a protocol over HTTP/S and WS/S. Also disclosed herein is an inter-widow communication mechanism that provides for a multi-window architecture where interconnected windows of a client application concurrently display information. This can be extended to use the private local data store, which enables the display and synchronization of content from a remote service application on a client device in a multi-window architecture.

  • Publication number: 20160198081
    Abstract: A method and system for remotely controlling a device via a computer network is provided. A client computer generates a client difference program indicative of a change of a state of the device last received from a server computer and transmits the same to the server computer. Upon receipt, the server computer executes the client difference program and determines an updated state of the device, generates control data indicative of the updated state of the device, provides the control data to the device, and generates and transmits a server difference program having encoded a difference between the state of the device and a state of the device last transmitted to the client computer. The client computer executes the server difference program for updating the state of the device last received from the server computer and for displaying the same in a human comprehensible fashion.
