BiblioTECH Clients connect to the BiblioTECH server using the configured IP address settings.
These settings are stored in the Communications INI file and are initially setup during the original client installation.
The two "IP" settings are
IPs this is a list of all of the BT-server's IP addresses (this allows for multi-homed servers)
SvrIP this is last "successful connection" address
When a client starts, it tries to contact the BT server using the IP addresses in sequence
SvrIP, then each of the IPs then 127.0.0.1, repeating until it locates a BiblioTECH server
When located and connection established, the client will update the INI file's SvrIP setting.
BiblioTECH Client computersIf the server's IP address must change, all BiblioTECH clients will lose contact.
