The AYS program is not compatible with emulated Windows environments on Linux (such as Wine).


While AYS may run on non-Windows operating systems and file systems, this is not officially supported by At Your Service Software, Inc. The compatibility of these products may vary over time, and At Your Service Software, Inc. cannot warrant that they will consistently function like a native Windows installation. Your results may vary.


While At Your Service Software, Inc. is providing a limited amount of technical information here to assist you in setting up your network, it is ultimately the responsibility of you and your company to work along with your network technicians and consultants to evaluate, select, install, test, and maintain these systems.

Linux is here used as a generic term.  There are many distributions available that provide the Linux kernel and GNU utilities, such as Debian, Linux Mint, Red Hat, Ubuntu, etc.

Samba is software used to provide Windows file- and print-sharing services on non-Windows platforms.  It is available packaged for every major Linux distribution and is commonly used as the embedded Windows-compatible server on many network-attached storage (NAS) devices.
