Join Gordon Luckett for an in-depth discussion in this video Thin web client, part of Learn Vault: The Basics.
- [Voiceover] Only available to Autodesk Vault Professional,…the Thin Web Client gives a client list web page…for viewing and checking out files.…It is simple compared to the full Vault Client,…but does not require any install at all.…Let's log into it now.…If you're running Vault Professional,…and you have the Thin Client installed,…you just have to go to the IP or address…of where your Vault server is installed,…and type AutodeskTC,…that's Autodesk Thin Client.…You can choose your authentication,…Windows or Vault,…in this case I'm just gonna use the default administrator,…no password, and I'll put the same server name in again,…right there, which is the same one as I go to,…10.3.25.10 in this case,…and then you can browse and get the list of vaults…on that server, in this case I've got two,…NANAMO and MYVAULT.…
I'm gonna pick NANAMO,…and then I could say Read Only or not.…Now, if you do Read Only,…that means you can't check out and check in files.…But the nice thing about this is you don't use up…a license of Vault.…
This course concentrates on the administrative side of Vault Basic. Gordon Luckett shows how to install a Vault server on a central Windows Server, and install the Vault Basic client on a computer with AutoCAD. The server and client are used to track how AutoCAD DWG and other non-CAD files are added, searched, and checked in and out of Vault. Gordon also covers autoloading files to Vault, and backing up and restoring the system. The final chapter covers the premium features in Vault Professional, such as categories, rules, and revisions.
