Net Server Diagnostics Dialog
|Top Previous Next
This dialog can be opened on master workstations to view the activity on the network and perform a couple diagnostic functions. This dialog may be left open while working in the program (though it will stay on top unless it's minimized), or closed/hidden at any time.
This function is available only to operators with Administrator access, and is available through Maintenance / Network Functions / View Network Diagnostics Window.
Most of the functions are the same as the Net Client Diagnostics Dialog, but the server has a few additional functions.
The server diagnostics will show each of the workstations connected (by nickname if they have nicknames set up). There is a button to forcefully disconnect one or all of them, e.g. if it seems "stuck". (Remember that they will automatically attempt to reconnect if they have the auto-start network option enabled.) To completely disconnect and not allow reconnection of any client, click the Stop button to stop the server.
If you see a Start button instead of Stop, that means the server is currently stopped. The server will not automatically restart (even if auto-start is enabled) if you stop it manually. To restart the server and wait for client connections, click the Start button.
