Starting the Windchill RV&S Client
The Windchill RV&S client is accessible in three interfaces: the graphical user interface (GUI), the Web interface, and the command line interface. For information on the CLI, see the CLI man pages.
You must establish a connection with the Windchill RV&S server before you can perform any Windchill RV&S client operations. All commands automatically prompt you for information and will connect you to the appropriate server if you are not already connected. If your system is appropriately configured, there may be nothing for you to specify. Additionally, if you are using a Win32 system connecting to an NT server with single signon enabled, you are automatically authenticated as the current user on your local system.
