If you haven't seen it yet, the Proxy feature in WebAccess 6 sp1 is great. However, it's not always easy to keep track of what window belongs to which account, particularly if you are in the calendar view, or if you have windows minimized.

By making a small change to one of the template files you can make your users life a bit simpler.

The template that needs to be modified is webacc.htt, and it lives in the ..\com\novell\webaccess\templates\frames directory. Open this template in your favorite text editor and locate the line that reads "<TITLE>{STRING Application.Page.title}</TITLE>"

Change the line so that it reads "<TITLE>{STRING Application.Page.title} ({VAR})</TITLE>" and save the file. If you have template caching enabled ( the default ), you'll need to shut down and restart WebAccess, your webserver and Java.

Now when users login, the browser window title bar will have their name in it, and more importantly, when proxied to another account, that account name will be in the title bar.
