=To get the most out of WAPT

To get the maximum out of WAPT, there are some prerequisites that globally concern the healthy management of a network :

  • it is best that repositories be close to the devices to be waptized to save bandwidth during the download of large package updates (ex : MSOffice, etc) ;
  • it is best that reverse and forward DNS resolution of all waptized devices be correctly configured ; system administrators running a network with a SaMBa3-PDC, winNT4, win2000AD, win2003AD may find useful to run SaMBa4 in Active Directory mode ;
  • it is best that the whole WAPT infrastructure be correctly configured in proxies and DNS ;

These suggestions may not apply if publicly hosted repositories are chosen, or if a lesser automation is preferred.
