It is very easy. Launch the server on one computer and the client on workstations, and enter the server's address when the client is first launched. On an Active Directory network, the entire process can be run from one computer irrespective of the number of workstations.
Not at the moment although it is currently under review. However, both the client and server side of CommFort are compatible with UNIX-style operating systems with the help of the Wine tool. Using the Wine tool, the server side works at full capacity, while the client side has some limitations.
Yes. The "-appdata_TEXT" parameter is used to separate the settings (any text can be used instead of "TEXT"). It is possible to connect several times to one server by starting the program with the "-repeat" parameter.
How to use parameters:
1. Add them to the startup command line (eg "C:\Program files\CommFort\CommFort.exe -appdata_server1 -repeat"). It is also possible to specify the path with parameters (eg in the Windows shortcut).
2. Create the file commandline.txt in the folder with the CommFort client and enter the necessary parameters in a column (each line corresponds to one separate parameter).
To achieve this, the server side should be run on a computer connected to the internet. The connection must have a separate static IP address. Your internet service provider can inform you if such an address is assigned to your computer. No additional configuration is required.
Yes, starting with version 5.83, servers can be joined on the master-slave basis. When a server is switched to the "Slave" mode, it starts redirecting its users to another server operating in the "Master" mode. This helps save traffic in situations when identical data need to be sent to multiple recipients - for instance, user list management commands, activity exchange data, posts to common channels.
We strongly advise against using untrustworthy sources of CommFort. There is a high risk that you will lose your money and the software will not operate. The CommFort server can only be purchased through the official links specified on the registration page.
