Studiometry Cloud is now available. This means you don't need to set up and manage a network, server, and clients. You can just log in to your account and have Studiometry do all of the setup and syncing for you. To read more about Studiometry Cloud, please visit:
You will enter this IP address on the client machine when you are out of the office to connect back and sync the data with your server machine. If your internet provider does not give you a static IP address, then your IP may change from time to time. You should ask your internet provider for a static IP address or use an IP forwarding service such as http://www.dyndns.com/ to solve this problem.
Airport Extreme Setup
- Select Apple Menu > System Preferences
- Go to the Networking preferences pane
- Select Wi-Fi from the list on the left
- You will then see your IP address on the right. It should say "Wi-Fi is connected to (your wireless network) and has the IP address 10.0.1.23"
- Write down this address, and then go to your AirPort Utility (in Applications/Utilities, or you can simply use Spotlight to find it)
- In Airport utility, click your router, click Edit, and then go to the Network tab
- Click Enable default host at, and then put in the IP address found in step 4/5.
- (optional) You can also setup individual Studiometry ports to forward to that IP address as well, you can setup ports 4465, 4466, and 4467 to route to the server's IP address.
- Click Update to save the changes.
Other Router Setups
If you're not using an Airport, you'll have to use your router's manual to setup the router at your office to forward Studiometry traffic to your server machine. You should forward the following ports to your Studiometry server from your router:
- 4465 on TCP/IP
- 4466 on TCP/IP
- 4467 on TCP/IP (for Studiometry Touch)
To setup the port mapping, you'll have to check out your specific router's instructions. Most likely you will use a web browser to connect to your router and modify the settings in there.
Once you've forwarded the ports and entered the IP address on the client machine, you should be able to connect. If you have issues, be sure to open ports 4465 and 4466 on the client machine and the server machine's firewalls. If these ports are blocked, Studiometry will not be able to communicate.
