Shared Server option in Client Explorer worked in 2015.2.1 but in 2015.2.5 it can't find the server. We have workstations running Win 7 and a Win 2008 R2 Standard server

Database / Client Explorer Options  

Use Client Explorer selected

Client Explorer Options no longer can find the Shared Server in Profile 2015.2.5 ... where it was fine in 2015.2.1

Answer

Thank you for using ProFile Live Community, generally, if Client Explorer cannot communicate with other computers in the network, it's usually due to firewall settings.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
