Multi-user server hardware

The server that is used as the Tekla Structures multi-user server does not have to be very efficient or have maximum performance. You can run the Tekla Structures multi-user server on the same computer as, for example, Tekla License Server, as long as you have dedicated different TCP ports for each of the servers.

The multi-user server can be used in networks that use IPv4, IPv6, or both the IPv4 and IPv6 protocols.

Other infrastructure

Set up scheduled backups for the model data stored on your multi-user server and store the backups on a different computer.

The computers on the same multi-user network must have a unique IP address and identical Subnet masks.

The computer running the multi-user server should have a fixed IP address.

The Tekla Structures multi-user server runs as a service. This means that the Tekla Structures multi-user server always starts automatically when you start the computer, and is always available when the computer is running.
