Server Advanced Communications Setup
Accord Server provides communication services to a variety of different possible clients. Advanced Communications facilitates communication with the Accord Controls. The Advanced Communications prompt facilitates configuration of important settings relating to the way in which Accord Server provides those services. This stage of the Setup Wizard must be completed before Accord Server can be launched. Accord Server will attempt to automatically configure this section to the optimal settings for the target PC, by selecting the fastest of the available active connections. To aid configuration, information relating to the selected connection is presented, such as the medium type and speed available. In the event that Accord Server does not automatically select the correct interface, simply select the correct interface from the ‘Interface’ list. Upon selection, Accord Server will list the available IP addresses for the selected interface, as sometimes there can be multiple addresses for a single interface. If the default address selected is incorrect, simply select the correct address from the ‘IP Address’ list. To permit remote clients access to the services provided by Accord Server, ensure ‘Remote Clients’ is ticked. It is not necessary to change the default ‘Advanced Port’, unless the internal network policy requires otherwise.
Note: It is strongly recommended that the selected interface uses a wired and uses a static IPv4 address.
