Pro Cloud Server Configuration Client - Application

At any point after installation you can configure the Pro Cloud Server using the Configuration Client application; the installer will create a Pro Cloud Config Client shortcut on the desktop.

By default the Configuration Client executable is accessible from these folders, depending on which architecture of Pro Cloud Server is installed, 32 or 64 bit:

  • 32 bit - 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\Pro Cloud Server\Client'   or
  • 64 bit - 'C:\Program Files\Sparx Systems\Pro Cloud Server\Client'

The Configuration Client can be used from any machine on your local network; however, communications between it and the Pro Cloud Server are not secure, so it should only be used from within a secure network.

The Configuration Client is used to configure various settings related to the Pro Cloud Server and the repositories it connects to. When the application first starts, a prompt to enter the address of the Pro Cloud Server to connect to is displayed (see the Pro Cloud Server Logon Screen Help topic for details). Once you have connected, the main screen displays.

The Main Screen

This screen shows a list of all defined database managers and the details of the connected Pro Cloud Server.  It is also the entry point for all management functions, such as configuring your License, setting the ports the Pro Cloud Server listens on, and maintaining database connections.

Sparx Systems Pro Cloud Server supports connections to these DBMS products:

  • Firebird
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • MySQL
  • Oracle
