Hi Tania,

I have absolutley no problem using the OntoViz plugin in client server mode!
It does what it should do. 

My problem is, that the intermediate .dot, .dot-input and also the .gif
file is saved in the root of my hard disk on Windows. Right now I run 
Protege from D: drive. Files show up directly in D:\.
I want to change installation to C: drive and C:\ is not writable by users
in our company.

It should NEVER! If you allow users to give a path name and the file is 
saved on the Server, Protege Client could overwrite files on the server
owned by the user running the protege server.
