I am very new to this tool & have been fiddling through this tool for couple of weeks. Previously, I used SAS EG 6.1 version installed on my local desktop, but the license expired & we moved to the one where SAS 9.4 is installed on a remote desktop. I have certain questions related to the PC version & the remote desktop version:
I am trying to get my thoughts clear around how SAS works. It would really helpful if any of you could help me understand this.
I really appreciate it. Thanks!!

Using a remote desktop for SAS and not your common working environment is saying your it - staff does not want to support SAS or SAS sales failed to get it aligned to your i IT policies. Getting a remote desktop is an isolated desktop not connected to your common working environment.
Eguide is a very advanced client that can connect to a SAS session on every type of server where it has been made available.
The local connection of Eguide is connecting to a sas session running on the same desktop as Eguide. You could see and try that als the old fashioned SAS base on your desktop with a lot of enhancements.
It is possible to run Eguide against an object spawner on a server. That one will start the needed sas session. In a bi di server environment that objectspawner is managed by the metadata server.
