Setting up a server for file sharing

All images are sent to either the Eyercloud system or a user configured server. To establish a connection to a server, click on “Options”, then “Servers”, followed by selecting the icon and choosing the appropriate server type.

These settings are required regardless of the type of server being configured:

1. Action: Defines the behaviour of the server (when to share the data):
        Primary: Default server used by Eyercloud. Cannot be removed, only disabled.
        Mirror: All the data generated by the device will be sent to the primary server and any mirror(s) configured.
        Contingency: Used only in case of Primary server failure.
        Manual: not used automatically, but is available for manual transfer.
2. Name: server identifier, is NOT unique.
3. Key: Generated automatically based o nthe server name. Unique and follow the format of three upper case letters (A to Z), followed by a dash (-), followed by three numbers (0 to 9)..



SMB server configuration:

     Server: IP address of the computer.

     Share Name: name of the shared folder.

     Domain: .

     Use Authentication: name of the computer’s User, the User who owns the folder.

     User / Password: user and password used to connect to the computer.

     Filename Structure: name structure of the files.

     File Transfer Frmat: format of the file being transfered, either .jpg or .dcm.

To share data with an SMB server, create a shared folder on your computer. An executable can do this automatically but requires administrator access. If access is unavailable it is advisable to set up the shared folder manually.
