How is HCL Traveler for Windows tablet devices unique?

HCL Traveler functions differently on Windows tablet devices than it does on others.

There is no client software required. Supported mail, calendar, and contacts applications connect to HCL Traveler using the Exchange ActiveSync protocol. Windows tablet devices support secure connections to the HCL Traveler server using SSL or VPN connections. Although there is no client software to install, you must create a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync account on your device for mail, calendar, and contacts before you can connect to the HCL Traveler server (for more information, see How do I configure an account for HCL Traveler on a Windows tablet device?).

HCL Traveler supports the following capabilities for Windows tablets:
