What is Astronaut VistA

Astronaut VistA is a package that installs one of several different versions of VistA (currently available versions are Astronaut WorldVistA and Astronaut OpenVistA) in an integrated fashion.

Astronaut packages the servers, clients, and auxiliary modules so that they are able to function together seamlessly.

The Astronaut OpenVistA server can accept connections from both the TMG-CPRS client (for Windows) and the OpenVistA-CIS client (for Windows and Linux). The Astronaut WorldVistA server can accept connections from the TMG-CPRS client but not from the OpenVistA-CIS client.

Installation Instructions

After choosing whether to use the Astronaut WorldVistA or the Astronaut OpenVistA version, select whether a Debian/Ubuntu (.deb) based operating system or a RedHat/Fedora/CentOS (.rpm) based operating system will be used to host the server modules.
