When your Consignor Server is up and running, you can install one or more Consignor Clients. Consignor Clients get all information from Consignor server and they must be connected to the server to run. If the server is down, all clients will stop working.
When installing Consignor Client, you need to know the Server name and ports to connect. If you already have this information ready, you can jump straight to Installing Consignor Client.
Otherwise start by following these steps first to find the Consignor Server name:
- Go to the Consignor Server or another Consignor Client.
- Choose Edit > Server Connection in the top menu
- Note Server name, Site port and Port as you will need these for the client installation.
Installing Consignor Client:
- Download the setup file: SetupCLI.exe (Important: if you are not running the newest version of Consignor Server, you should download an older version - click here)
- Run the setup file as administrator.
- Click Next to begin the installation process.
- Enter the Server Name, Port and Site Port and click Install. (Notice that the placement of the fields for Port and Site Port are different order compared to the server)
- Click Finish to complete the installation and launch Consignor Client.
If your Consignor Client doesn't connect to Consignor Server, try to check the following:
- Make sure your Consignor Server is up and running
- If you have Windows Firewall running on the same machine as your Consignor Server, it might be blocking the connection. See our guide to Opening Windows Firewall for client connections to server. It explains how to open the ports needed to ensure connection between Consignor Clients and server.
