When using Windows 7 and XP Mode in a Server/Client scenario, Compass 2.0 should be
installed within XP Mode on both the Server and Client machines. The Windows Firewall
needs to be disabled in XP Mode on the Server machine. The firewall can remain enabled in
Windows 7, and in the Client machines. The Server machine needs to be set to utilize the
machine’s NIC directly, and the client machines need to be set for Shared Networking
(NAT). Follow the steps below to achieve these settings:
1. On the Server machine, within XP Mode, go to Start->Settings->Control Panel.
Double click on Windows Firewall and select “Off”. Click OK. Close Control Panel.

be the server name used for ALL client machines that will connect to this database.
