Tech Support Thursday: Rerouting Workstation Clients

Hello everybody, welcome to another edition of Tech Support Thursday.

Today I’m going to cover a small but important issue for Enterprise or Workgroup clients: What needs to be done to each client machine when the server is being moved? How do you point the existing clients to a new machine?

Read on to find out how!

The easiest way to reset the server location specification for each machine is to run this file: Reset TapRooT Registry Key.reg

This file is found in the same place for versions 4.0.5 and 4.0.6 of the program: C:\Program Files\TapRooT

For version 4.0.4, this file was still on the CD in the TapSWv4 folder.

Run this file with administrative rights and then re-run the program. It will prompt for your serial number, which should be pre-filled with whatever it currently was, then click NEXT to specify installation type (which should default to Workstation) and then finally click NEXT to specify the server and instance name. This is the key screen which lets you specify where the new server is located.

I hope this helped. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them here or contact Technical Support.
