Connecting to and Disconnecting from a Project - WinRunner

If you are working with both WinRunner and TestDirector, WinRunner can communicate with your TestDirector project. You can connect or disconnect WinRunner from a TestDirector project at any time during the testing process. However, do not disconnect WinRunner from TestDirector while running tests in WinRunner from TestDirector.

The connection process has two stages. First, you connect WinRunner to the TestDirector server. This server handles the connections between WinRunner and the TestDirector project. Next, you choose the project you want WinRunner to access. The project stores tests and test run information for the application you are testing. Note that TestDirector projects are password protected, so you must provide a user name and a password.
