If you have a true VPN, you won't need Citrix; however, even with a VPN there are some applications that won't work with a VPN. In those instances, you will need something like Citrix. We have that exact situation. Fortunately, the only applications that require Citrix are applications I never really use or care about.
You can use Citrix. JAWS does need to be loaded on your machine and on the server. It really isn't that hard to do, and John Carlson (in escalation at Freedom Scientific) is pretty good. You don't have to buy two copies of JAWS (by the way, Window-Eyes works exactly the same way).
So, you do not have to rely on some downloaded copy of this database. You can access it, and if the state has any IT personnel worthy of the name, they should be able to set up a Citrix server with JAWS.

Here are more questions then. I don't remember making mention of
Citrix, but we do actually use that. There is a state database on
Citrix that has all client information on it.
I work for a state vocational rehabilitation agency.
As it stands, I cannot use Citrix to get into this database because Jaws
is obviously installed on my, and a few other users' machines. From my
understanding, Citrix would need to be installed on that server
statewide, in order for me to be able to use it to access the client
So, the IT solution is to come down and install physical copies of Jaws
and the database on my laptop, so that I will have instant access
In other words, I'll be able to launch the client database from the
laptop, instead of having to log into it remotely.
So, are there many others using Citrix with Jaws, and if so, what
capacity do you use it in?
PS. All of this is giving me a headache; I am becoming more confused,
by the minute.
