The Caucus Server

What is the Caucus Server?

The Caucus server is an open, powerful engine that creates virtual workspaces where people can work together on the Web. Built for the net, the Caucus server runs under Microsoft Windows NT and on most popular UNIX platforms, and works with any CGI-compatible Web server software and with the other infrastructure components of an Internet or intranet site.

The Caucus server manages all the collaborative information you create in Caucus conference workspaces. It also handles the structure of your workspace conferences, managing user lists, permissions, and appropriate views of information for each user, as well as any other resources you've attached to a Caucus workspace.

Caucus includes its own conference database; there's no need to purchase additional software. On the other hand, if you have developed browser front ends to applications on other databases, these HTML access points may be integrated within a Caucus workspace.
