Setting up FrameReady on Your Network

Important: DO NOT install FrameReady on any computer other than the Host computer.

How to set up FrameReady on your Network

  1. The default protocol for networking is TCP/IP. It is recommended that each computer be assigned a static IP address.
  2. Review these Networking Guidelines.
    If you are unfamiliar with setting up a computer network, then hire a network technician to do it for you.
  3. Install FrameReady and FileMaker Pro on the Host computer.
    The Host computer should be your fastest, most powerful computer. The information on the Host computer will be shared with the other devices via the network.
  4. Install only FileMaker Pro on all computers on the network.
    The name of the computer is automatically entered as the Username during the installation process. The username is the name FileMaker uses in the Hosts dialog box to identify each computer.
  5. You will now need to set FrameReady to Multi-user on the Host computer.
    See : Setting up FrameReady for Multi-User
  6. Open FrameReady on the Guest computer.
    See: Open on Guest or Client 

Next: Set up FrameReady for Multi User
