During the planning process for an Ericom Connect deployment, consider these questions:

·          Which users should have access to Ericom Connect resources?

·          Do all the users have similar needs, or are there groups of users with distinct access needs?

·          Will there be users accessing the environment from outside a private network.

·          How will changes in personnel and their groups affect the access policy?

·          What type of applications will be published?

Such questions will help define how resources are published and organized into "Publish" and "System" groups .
