New Server/Client software from digital network specialist Optocore promises to facilitate simultaneous network control from multiple computers.

Where previously standard Optocore control software had been purely workstation-based, – limiting network control to software installed on a single computer – the Server/Client opens up network control. ‘If different personnel with their own computers wanted to initiate simultaneous changes for different devices in the network, this would not have been possible,’ explains Support Engineer, Christian Pötsch. ‘However, the Server/Client version of the software provides much greater flexibility.’

By installing Server & Client on one computer – connected to the Optocore network by USB or RS232 – and Client on every other nominated computer the Optocore network can be controlled by enabling the Ethernet transport once a LAN has been set up between the computers using standard components. Once configured, every individual computer can access the server, and users can make changes to the network simultaneously.

‘The major benefit of the server-client structure is the user right management,’ adds Tine Helme, Optocore Director of Sales and Marketing. ‘This creates so much versatility for multiple computer users on the network, enabling reconfiguration and status monitoring, with different access rights – all transported by the Optocore network via a standard Ethernet LAN between the client and server computers. At the same time, there remains the option of operating in standard Workstation mode – all within the same package. It is what our customers have been requesting for some time.’
