DupScout Server Configuration

DupScout Server provides a variety of configuration options allowing one to easily integrate the product into a user-specific network environment. In order to open the main options dialog, press the 'Options' button located on the main toolbar.

DupScout Server Options Dialog

The DupScout client GUI application requires users to login with a DupScout user name and password. The default user name and password is set to admin/admin. In addition, DupScout Server provides the ability to set a custom user name and/or password for the DupScout client GUI application, the web-based management interface and the command line utility, which may be used to automate configuration and management tasks. In order to set a custom user name and password, open the main options dialog, select the 'Server' tab, enter a new user name and password and press the 'Save' button.

DupScout Server User Configuration

DupScout Server uses the TCP/IP port 9126 as the default server control port and the TCP/IP port 80 as the default web access port. Sometimes, these ports may be in use by some other software products or system services. If one or both of these ports are in use, DupScout Server will be unable to operate properly and the user needs to change the DupScout server control port and/or web access port. In order to set a custom server control port and/or web access port, open the main options dialog, select the 'Server' tab and enter a custom TCP/IP port number to use. If the DupScout server should be controlled through the network, make sure the custom TCP/IP ports are open in the server's firewall.

Configuring E-Mail Notifications

DupScout Server provides the ability to send E-Mail notifications when a duplicate files search command is failed. In order to configure an SMTP E-Mail server to use to send E-Mail notifications, open the main options dialog, select the 'E-Mail' tab, enter the SMTP server host name, SMTP server port, SMTP user name, password and the source E-Mail address to use to send E-Mail notifications.

Configuring SQL Database Integration

DupScout Server provides the ability to save duplicate files reports to an SQL database allowing one to keep a history of reports for future review and analysis. In order to enable the SQL database export operations, open a duplicate files search command dialog, press the 'Options' button, select the 'Save' checkbox, select the SQL database report format and press the 'Save' button.

DupScout Server Database Configuration

DupScout Server exports SQL database reports through the ODBC database interface, which should be configured to operate properly. In order to configure the ODBC database interface, open the main options dialog, select the 'Database' tab, enable the ODBC database interface, specify the ODBC data source, ODBC user name and password to use to save reports to the SQL database.
