PC Remote Shutdown Installation Guide

Setting up PC Remote Shutdown solution in your network is very easy and does not need expensive server hardware.

Simply follow the few steps below:



Step 1: Install and run the Server Software

After you download the Server software setup file, run it to install the Server software in the PC you want to use as the central controller in the network to control the rest of the PCs.

After installation, the Server will be run automatically.

NOTE: If any firewall software ask you if you want to grant internet access to Aquarius Soft PC Remote Shutdown Pro Server, answer yes. The solution will need to have network access for the communication between the Client and the Server



Step 2: Take down the Server Information

When the Server software is run after installation, take down the following Server software information at the top of the window:

* Server Name
* Server IP Address
* Port Number

These information is required for the Client software to connect to the Server software.

Leave the Server software running.



Step 3: Install and run the Client Software

After you download the Client software setup file, run it to install the Client software in each PC that you want to be controlled by the Server software.

After installation, the Client software will be run automatically.

NOTE:

* Do not install the Client software in the same PC as the Server software.
* If any firewall software ask you if you want to grant internet access to Aquarius Soft PC Remote Shutdown Pro Client/Client Service/Client Window, answer yes. The solution will need to have network access for the communication between the Client and the Server.


Step 4: Configure and test the Client Software

When the Client software is run after installation, check the Enable Remote Shutdown check box and enter the following information into the Client software:

* The Client Name to be displayed on the Server software
* The Server Name
* The Server IP Address
* The Port Number

Select the Server Name radio button and press the Test Connection to Server button.

If the connection is successful, click the OK button to save the changes. This PC is now ready to be shutdown and controlled by the Server software.

If the connection fails, select the Server IP radio button and press the Test Connection to Server button.

If the connection still fails, check that you have entered the server information properly and that the Server software is currently running and started in another PC in the same network.

When connection is successful, install the Client software in the other PCs you want to be controlled by the Server software.
