The following information has been posted by NSHE System Computing Services.
The software, Host On-Demand, used to connect to Mustang for the administrative systems Advantage Financial, HRMS, and Legacy SIS, will no longer be an option to NSHE effective May 1, 2014.
System Computing Services recommends QWS3270 Secure client as a replacement for Host On-Demand. We have found QWS3270 Secure to be faster and more reliable. We share our System-wide site license with the campuses so this client software can be installed on an employee’s campus workstation and/or home computer. Please contact your institution’s IT support to request QWS3270 Secure client.
