Requirements for installing WITM

WITM by Dr. David Kirkby

You will obviously need a browser on the machine you wish to access Mathematica from. Great care has been taken in the design of WITM to ensure that it works well while using small browsers on handheld computers. The software has been extensively tested on an hp iPAQ 4150, which has a screen 320 pixels high by 240 pixels wide. It should work well on other PDAs. It has not been tested on a smartphone, but I am hopeful it will work on there too. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used to cause handheld devices to display the data optimally. So WITM should work with many browsers. The brower does not need to support Javascript or anything else special. No cookies are used by WITM. If you wish to use SSL to make secure connections to the web server, then the browser must support SSL, but almost all browsers do today. So the clients requirements are very easy to meet. The following clients have been tested, but others should work with no problem.

The computer with the Mathematica kernel has more stringent requirements, which include:

It is possible that installing Mathematica on one computer and the web server on another could be made to work. This has not been tried. Logo Valid HTML 4.01 Valid CSS!
