  • Publication number: 20110184970
    Abstract: Since no access history is generated for when a file update which makes use of a copy and paste function is performed, it is difficult to detect the file that served as the reference source during the update. Hence, the present invention is provided to manage a client access history for each file that is stored in a storage device, and detect a file, which has been accessed between a time when a corresponding user logs into the storage device and a time when an updated file is updated based on information of the access history, as the reference source for the updated file.

  • Patent number: 7865604
    Abstract: A system and program for a proxy server that forwards an access request from a client to a data server and forwards response data from the data server to the client. The proxy server includes a means for storing a first address location and an encoding format of the response data. The proxy server also includes a means for receiving a subsequent access request from the client, which includes a second address location encoded by the encoding format. A means is present in the proxy server for comparing the second address location to the first address location to determine if the second address location is related to the first address location. The proxy server also includes a means for decoding the second address location based on the encoding format in response to a determination that the second address location is related to the first address location.

  • Patent number: 7747723
    Abstract: A management system accepts a connection request from a client computer to a server computer, acquires connection settings information, calculates a network bandwidth required for processing for connection from the client computer to the server computer, stores the connection request into a connection request processing queue, determines whether the processing for the connection from the client computer to the server computer can be performed or not, and notifies the client computer of a server identification number. The client computer issues a connection request to the server computer based on the received server identification number, and starts communication therewith. In spite of concentration of connection requests from a large number of client computers to server computers, the connection requests can be processed while controlling the communication data volume generated in a network at a point where the server computers are aggregated, so as to avoid occurrence of congestion.

  • Patent number: 7660799
    Abstract: In a remote desktop system, information pertaining to client resources is included in screen information that a server manages to display in a client. In the remote desktop system, the client collects information pertaining to units making up the client or to programs as resource information, and sends the collected information to the server via a network. The server manages the resource information obtained from the client, and creates screen information to be displayed in the client. In the creation of the screen information, the server creates client screen information (first screen) including the resource information of the server within the screen information of the client, or creates server screen information (second screen) including the resource information of the client within the screen information of the server, and displays the first or second screen in the client.

  • Patent number: 7521864
    Abstract: An electron device such as a fluorescent display tube is provided, wherein a simple ring-less getter can be simply fixed and arranged with a large degree of freedom. The ring-less getter is securely fixed to the inner surface of the glass anode substrate using laser beams. The laser beam is irradiated onto the ring-less getter from outside the anode substrate. Thus, the laser beam passes through the anode substrate thus heating and melting the ring-less getter. The corresponding inner surface of the anode substrate is melted through the heating. In cooling, the portion where the ring-less getter and the anode substrate are in a molten state is solidified, so that the ring-less getter is bonded to the anode substrate. The ring-less getter is shaped arbitrarily through press-working a getter material.
