running on your desktop. You install the NetBeans IDE (from NetBeans.org)
and the Distributed NetBeans Client for OpenVMS on your desktop system.
- IDE Server for OpenVMS, which runs on OpenVMS and provides remote
services for the client plug-in. You install the IDE Server on your OpenVMS system.

on your OpenVMS system.)
Communication between the client system and the remote server system
is encrypted using SSL.
