A 1.1.b Start LUPMIS on a LAN

In an established network environment, e.g. in a LAN at a TCPD office with an experienced network administrator, LUPMIS can run through the network. Databases (MySQL) are accessed on the central server to ensure that all users have the same tabular data, while - for higher performance - GIS image data are stored locally (see architecture below).

LUPMIS has to be installed on the server, following the standard procedure, as explained in the installation chapter (Annex 1.1). On the workstations (clients), LUPMIS must also be installed the same way.

At the time of log-in, the user decides which data he wants to access, either locally on his/her workstation (e.g. laptop) or on the network server. He should know the IP address of the server (see below, if not known). Preferably, this is a static address, defined at the server by the network administrator. In LUPMIS, select: LAN: Change... > Enter LUPMIS Tools:

Then select the network server from the list of addresses in the LAN, starting with 10.x.x.x or 172.x.x.x or 192.x.x.x.

For security reasons, user name and authorization have to be set from the server. You can not use user name and password from your local LUPMIS installation. These network user name and password are then to be used for every log-in from the work station to the server's data.

With this log-in, the user can see and retrieve all database data at the server. You can check, for example:

How to check the LAN (internal) address of your network server?

There are various ways to assess the LAN (internal) address of your network server:

a) In LUPMIS, with Settings > System info > Under 'All address on this LAN' > Look for 'this computer'. (It is not the public address).

b) Checking for IP addresses can also be done in Windows at command level through command: cmd /c arp -a

Often, communication to the server can cause a problem. A way to check the integrity of the communication is to 'ping' from the workstation to the server:

If there are still problems, check that MySQL has been started and active, as explained in the previous Chapter (Annex 1.1.a).
