Downloading executables for heterogeneous environments
The distributed architecture of OpenEdge allows you to optimize your hardware and network resources by installing components across networked machines, specifically when you are installing products such as the WebSpeed Transaction Server and the AppServer. Although some of these products' components must reside together on the same machine, in some cases, you can distribute components to different machines, even if the machines have different hardware or operating systems. For example, you can install a WebSpeed Messenger or the NameServer on a UNIX platform and install a WebSpeed Broker and agents in Windows.
If you need either the WebSpeed Messenger executable or the NameServer executable for a platform other than UNIX, you can download the executables free of charge from
