Aptora Mobile – How Aptora Mobile II Connects to Your Server
It is recommended, though not required, that you use a stand-alone machine to run your Aptora Mobile II server. This machine should not have any users who actively use the machine for work. Whether you decide to use a stand-alone machine or install Aptora Mobile II on the same server hosting your Total Office Manager database, in order to get Aptora Mobile II ready to go, you must connect your Aptora Mobile II Server machine directly to your internet connection.
Typically, a business network will have a router in place. Some network environments may also have an intermingled mix consisting of several switches or routers in addition to a DSL or cable modem. Whatever your company’s setup is, you need to connect the Aptora Mobile II Server directly to one of the LAN ports on your router (or switch that connects directly to a router). This will allow the server computer to access the local intranet, and there by your Total Office Manager server, as well as the internet.
