Set up a Dino Server

Prepare the Windows machines

  • Make sure the windows version you're using is windows 2000 or windows XP, 256 mb of memory, and a 1 GHZ cpu is recommended.
  • Install the TCP/IP internet protocol, and make sure you can PING every station. (No microsoft clients, or file sharing is needed)
  • configure your firewall and open tcp/udp ports 12000 -> 12005 (in some cases ports below 12015 are also used)
  • configure your firewall to allow the ping command

Prepare the Dino software

In theory the only thing you need to set up a Dino system is the "dino.exe" program. But then the program will have NO data at all. Ideal is to start from a set of base files with a minimun configuration.

Setup the base files with a minimal configuration

  • Create a c:\dinodata\dino\base folder
  • copy the base files (*.sdb) with minimal configuration in this folder (if there is already a HISTORY folder DELETE THIS)

Setup the application

  • Create a c:\dinoexe folder
  • Copy the file dino.exe in this folder
  • Create a shortcut towards the desktop
  • launch the shortcut
  • password = Setup
  • mark the combo box next to server
  • fill in the "site name", which must be unique
  • press ok

Set up a Dino client

  • Create a c:\dinoexe folder
  • Copy the file dino.exe in this folder
  • Create a shortcut towards the desktop
  • launch the shortcut
  • password = Setup
  • mark the combo box next to client
  • fill in the "ip adress of the Dino server" next
  • press ok

Every new client must be validated on the server
