Frequently Asked Questions

Question : Is there a "Step by Step" installation guide for MultiCalendar Client/Server Edition?

Answer:

1. First download MultiCalendar C/S Edition from http://www.multicalendar.com/download/mccs10.zip.

Then open the zip file you downloaded using Winzip or Winrar (If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, Windows Explorer will open the zip file automatically). You will find two exe files in it; one is server4.exe, the other is client4.exe.

2. Double click server4.exe to install the MultiCalendar Server on the computer you want to act as a server (The server can have any of the following system: Windows 2000/Windows NT/Windows XP/Windows 2003/Windows Vista/Windows 2008/Windows 7).

3. Double click client4.exe to Install the MultiCalendar Client on any computer you want to act as a client (Windows 98 SE/Windows ME/Windows 2000/Windows NT/Windows XP/Windows 2003/Windows Vista/Windows 2008/Windows 7). After installation, click "Start"->"Programs"->"MultiCalendarCS4.0"->"MultiCalendar Client Database Settings tools". Then input the server's computer name or server's IP address. After that, click "Test Connection" button to connect. When the connection is succesful, click the Exit button to close it. When it asks if you want to save current settings, choose Yes.

If you cannot connect to server, check the following list:

a.) Is the computer name/IP address for server correctly input?
b.) Is the server computer using Windows XP SP2? If yes, you need to add MultiCalendar Server 4.0 (mccssvr4.exe in MultiCalendar Server installation folder\Server) and MultiCalendar Application Server 4.0 (mccsappvr4.exe in MultiCalendar Server installation folder\appserver) to your firewall's exception list.
c.) Is the server computer accessible on the network?
d.) Is the server computer connected via Internet? When server computer has a static IP address on Internet, and if there is a router between the server and the Internet connection, you need to open ports 12011, 12012 and 12013 of the router and forward all traffic on these ports to the MultiCalendar server computer.

4. Click "Start"->"Programs"->"MultiCalendarCS4.0"->"MultiCalendarCS Client" on the client side computer. The MultiCalendar C/S Client will start up and connect to the remote MultiCalendar Server. The default username and password is as following:
Username: testuser
Password: testpass

5. If you want to set up your own login account, you can go to "Start"->"Programs"->"MultiCalendarCS4.0"->"User Management Tools" at any client side computer to set up all accounts. We recommend you set up a different login account for each user. The default login account for User Management Tools is as following:
Username: Admin
Password: changeme
