Using a VPN connection to the server when opening a model

Question:
How does the performance of my VPN connection affect the usage of Tekla Structures if I use a model stored on the server?

Answer:
As described in the article about autosave, some files are typically autosaved locally to the specified folder on your computer and all other files are saved using your VPN connection directly to the model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

on the server.

The performance of your VPN connection has a great impact on the speed of Tekla Structures, for example, if you are numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

objects, creating drawings, exporting data to files, or creating snapshots. All of these actions create files that are directly stored in the model folder on the server using your VPN connection.
