How to Connect the Server and Client Computers

Many incoming email that asks How do I connect the server and the client computer? I always replied via email. So rather than have to answer by email then I post the answer here.

How to connect a client computer and a server? actually quite easy, as follows:

To use the client software is required at least 2 computers connected in LAN network :

  1. one computer as a server (the server software installed)
  2. one or another client (client software installed)

How to Connect the Server and Client Computers


  1. setting the IP server with a static model such as 192.168.1.1
  2. on the server go to C:\Program Files\SoftwareName looking dbfile folder.
  3. sharing folders full
  4. client clicks on the connect icon and navigate to the server database, for example: \\192.168.1.1\dbfile
  5. select the db file that appears and click ok
  6. client already connected

To set the user authority is only done on the server computer in a computer program then the client will read the appropriate user and password settings are included.

Additional way of connecting computers to the server and client on windows 7 and windows vista the same way but there are special ie: the server software is not installed in c:\ but in d:\ or other origins not in c:\

  1. setting the IP server with a static model such as 192.168.1.1
  2. on the server open D:\SoftwareName locate the folder dbfile
  3. sharing folders full
  4. client clicks on the connect icon and navigate to the server database, for example: \\192.168.1.1\dbfile
  5. select the db file that appears and click ok
  6. client already connected
Well hopefully this short guide can make the installation software of our school more smoothly and easily. amen !! Any questions please contact us ...
