HowTo Use A Touch Device (iPad) with NST
OverviewNST WUI is now touch device friendly. The Apple iPad has been tested and works well with the NST WUI including integrated gesture support. Given the relatively large display size, form factor and weight of the iPad, it is really the first practical touch device that can be used by a network computing engineer or a security network administrator to perform operational NST WUI tasks. Other smaller size touch devices like the Apple iPod touch, Apple iPhone or an Android smart phone also work but are hard to visually navigate through the NST WUI.
Recommended Browsers & Settings
Apple iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad
The recommended browser for using NST on an Apple touch device family line is the iCab Mobile browser. It supports full screen browsing thus maximizing the viewport display area which gives the illusion of a natively running application (app). SVG is supported on this browser.
Android Touch Devices
The Dolphin Broser provides full screen browsing and touch gesture support making it an excellent choice for running NST on an Android touch device. Unfortunately SVG is Not supported on this browser.
Mozilla Firefox Mobile Browser
The Mozilla Firefox Mobile Browser provides full screen browsing support with the Full Screen plugin making it also an excellent choice for running NST on an Android touch device. This browser supports SVG for Android.
