Connect to Server

If your organization (such as a business or your family) needs to share data among different users, you can use Efficient Calendar Network Edition.With its help, all members in your organization can access the same copy of data, to work in conjunction and improve work efficiency.

Please go through the following steps to connect to server.

Server

  1. Download and install Efficient Calendar's server software (EfficientCalendarNetwork-Setup.exe) on the server computer.
  2. After you install Efficient Calendar Server on the server computer, Efficient Calendar will create a database file and connect to server automatically. (By default, the directory of database file is "C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\My Documents\MyCalendar.ecfw" )
  3. There will pop up the User Management window for you to create user accounts. You can customize users’ access rights, which include read-only, access to all users’ data, rights for import/export/printing, etc.
  4. Select one new account, you will see the related information about connecting to server. Then click Copy to Clipboard button and send the info to that user. (Note: password will not be displayed for privacy.) When the number of authorized user is full, the Add button will be disabled. If you want to add a new user, please purchase another license on our official website. And then click Registration Codes button to input it and to add again.

    Tips: If you need to connect to server manually in some time, just click File -> Connect to Server. And input this info below:
    Server ID: Get from Efficient Organizer Server or User Management Window. And then click Get Server Info button.
    Server: Automatically access
    Database file: Automatically access
    Username: SYSDBA (default system administrator)
    Password: masterkey (default system administrator password)

Client

  1. Download and install Efficient Calendar (EfficientCalendar-Setup.exe) on each client computer that needs to access shared data.
  2. Start Efficient Calendar and click Connect to Server on File menu.
  3. Please input the related information that the administrator has set for you in the interface:

    Server ID: Get from administrator. And then click Get Server Info button.
    Server: Automatically access
    Database file: Automatically access
    Username: the user name that the administrator has set for you
    Password: the password that the administrator has set for you

  4. Now you can connect to the data file on the server and share data with other users.

Possible reasons for failing to connect to server

  1. Whether the administrator opened the shared file without connecting to server.
  2. When the administrator set password for the shared file without connecting to server, whether he or she did not select It may be accessed simultaneously by multiple users.
  3. Whether the LAN is connected.
  4. Whether the Windows Firewall allows Efficient Calendar and Firebird to communicate through.
