Introduction
Introduction
- Important: This document is intended only for persons with advanced networking
experience.
This document provides the general information needed to configure the Rimage Server (the PC
that is physically connected to the Rimage autoloader) and client applications to process orders
on an existing network. The most common networking scenarios are described in this guide.
The Rimage Messaging System communicates order requests, completion notices and error
messages. The system uses a Messaging Server that forwards the orders to the Imaging and
Production Servers. The Messaging Server runs on the Rimage Server. All client applications and
Production and Imaging Servers must have access to the Messaging Server. The source files
and the Rimage System Folder must be accessible by the clients and the Rimage Server for the
system to work.

the Connect to server option, you can use a computer name during the installation of the
clients; however, you will need to use the root account to modify the HOSTS file. See page
18 for information about how to modify the HOSTS file. Modifying the HOSTS file only works
when NetInfo is not used to configure the network settings.

RimageServices account information
All default installs of Rimage software suites are configured at the factory with an account set up
for the Rimage Servers. Rimage recommends that you change the password for security
reasons.
The default account information is:
•
