The sandbox exercises and online trial program use the Citrix Receiver to connect your workstation to the remote server running the IBM product you are evaluating.
You will need to download the latest Receiver appropriate for your operating system.
Citrix Receiver 3.4 shows poor performance in some environments and will time out before a connection is made. We recommend unistalling 3.4 and using Citrix 3.3 if this occurs.
Note: When you install the Receiver, you are asked at the last step of the installation to provide a work email or server address as shown in this figure:
Do not fill in this field. Instead, click Cancel and then Yes to cancel out of the setup, as shown in this figure:
At this point, the installation has completed successfully and you may go on to use the Sandox.
If you do not have the Citrix online plugin installed when you attempt to access the online trial, you will be prompted to install it.
If you're having trouble installing the plugin, see the Citrix installation instructions.
Microsoft Internet Explorer V6 or later and Mozilla Firefox V1.5 or later are supported.
We recommend that you use a high-speed connection while evaluating software online. Because the session you will be using is running remotely over the Internet with unpredictable delays and latencies, you should not use your experience with the session as a guide to the performance of the tools when installed in a local environment.
During your online trial, you can use your own data and files to try out real-world scenarios on the IBM server. To ensure your privacy, all data and projects are deleted automatically from the remote server at the end of your trial session. Your data files cannot be seen by others, and cannot be retrieved from the remote server after the trial period ends.
