System and method for record and playback of collaborative Web browsing session

A collaborative Web browsing session may take place over a network, allowing the presenter on a first computer to direct the audio and visual components of a browser on one or more second computers. The second computer is instructed to log into a control site that downloads an active control, such as an applet, to the second computer. The present invention allows a collaborative Web browsing session ("session"), as created by the presenter and witnessed by one or more users on second computers, to be recorded and archived by the control site. When a user of a computer is connected to the control site through a communication network such as the World Wide Web, that user may log into the control site and request to view an archived session. The session will then be replayed by the control site on the user's computer, directing the audio and visual components of the browser on the user's computer as if the user was attending the live session. The recorded session replays the events of the live session in real time such that the playback experience contains the same audio and visual events that took place when the session was originally being recorded.

Apparatus and accompanying methods for providing, through a centralized server site, an integrated virtual office environment, remotely accessible via a network-connected web browser, with remote network monitoring and management capabilities

InactiveUS6920502B2Readily and easily accommodateExpanding processing and storage capacityMultiple digital computer combinationsProgram controlCA protocolNetwork connection
Apparatus and accompanying methods for use therein for implementing an integrated, virtual office user environment, through an office server(s), through which a remotely stationed user can access typical office network-based applications, including e-mail, file sharing and hosted thin-client programs, through a remotely located network, e.g., WAN, connected web browser. Specifically, a front end, namely a service enablement platform (SEP), to one or more office servers on a LAN is connected to both the WAN and LAN and acts both as a bridge between the user and his(her) office applications and as a protocol translator to enable bi-directional, web-based, real-time communication to occur between the browser and each such application. During initial operation, the SEP, operating under a default profile, establishes, over an analog connection to the WAN, a management session with the site to obtain customer WAN access information, then tears down the analog connection and establishes a broadband WAN connection through which the SEP re-establishes its prior session and obtains a client certificate and its customized profile. The SEP then re-initializes itself to that particular profile.

The portal includes a display connected to the remote terminal for displaying an arrangement of cells, each cell including a visual object and an underlying application. A user input device enables user inputs to select one of the cells. The portal provides simple and intuitive access to the wide variety of services currently offered, and to be offered in the future, in communications systems.

Method and apparatus for providing mobile and other intermittent connectivity in a computing environment

A seamless solution transparently addresses the characteristics of nomadic systems, and enables existing network applications to run reliably in mobile environments. A Mobility Management Server coupled to the mobile network maintains the state of each of any number of Mobile End Systems and handles the complex session management required to maintain persistent connections to the network and to other peer processes. If a Mobile End System becomes unreachable, suspends, or changes network address (e.g., due to roaming from one network interconnect to another), the Mobility Management Server maintains the connection to the associated peer task—allowing the Mobile End System to maintain a continuous connection even though it may temporarily lose contact with its network medium. An interface-based listener uses network point of attachment information supplied by a network interface to determine roaming conditions and to efficiently reestablish connection upon roaming. The Mobility Management Server can distribute lists to Mobile End Systems specifying how to contact it over disjoint networks.

Hybrid mpeg/ip digital cable gateway device and architecture associated therewith

A novel cable gateway system and architecture incorporating a hybrid digital video transceiver. The digital cable system architecture combines reception of legacy video such as MPEG-TS based DVB-C streams with that of original IP video over DOCSIS channels. The system comprises a hybrid DVB / IP cable gateway STB capable of receiving both legacy DVB-C video and original IP video streams. The cable gateway device performs the front-end functionality (including QAM receiver, tuner and broadband connection) while the back-end functionality of video decoding and display is performed by one or more standard IP-STBs connected to the cable gateway device over a network (e.g., home LAN). Legacy MPEG-TS based DVB-C video is captured and encapsulated into packets for distribution over the network to the IP-STBs. The cable gateway distributes the original IP video received over the CATV source and the encapsulated legacy video as video over IP packets over the network.

Method and apparatus for remote installation of an operating system over a network connection

A method for remote installation of a target operating system is carried out on a machine operating a source operating system. In one embodiment, it is presumed that the source operating system was booted from a first bootable region of a storage associated with the machine. According to the method, a copy of the source operating system together with the target operating system are delivered to the machine and stored in a second bootable region of the storage. The copy of the source operating system may be stored in a first partition of the second bootable region of the storage, and the target operating system may be stored in a second partition of the second bootable region. A boot loader is then configured to boot the copy of the source operating system from the second bootable region of the storage. The machine is then re-booted. At this point, the machine is still running the source operating system, although in this case that operating system was booted from the second bootable region of the storage. The original source operating system (from the first bootable region) is then removed, and the boot loader is re-configured to boot the target operating system from the second bootable region of the storage. The machine is then re-booted again, after which the target operating system is operational. In one embodiment, the first and second bootable regions may be separate hard disks, and the source and target operating systems are Linux and Windows, or vice versa.
