    Question Question on Setup of BPA and 4 client network

    Good Day,

    Quick Question? I have been hired to install your BPA pro sw/hw bundle on three Dell Touchscreens with cash drawers and two receipt printers for the restaurant. This is a fresh install and they do have not previous accounting so I will help create the accounting modules by importing xls or csv data where applicable. The equipment has been shipped and the DSL will be installed today.
    We also have an 8 port hub for the network. I don't have the manual but assume that the BPA pro sits on the c drive of the server and the clients have red/write access to that C drive and certain folders are copied to the client drives a BPA folder of some kind. I am a tech with some experience and want to make sure I don't forget something common that your team his seen.
    Any suggestions or comments are appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi There,

    I don't work for BPA, but am a fellow consultant tasked with a similar project. It works fine, all I can suggest is to make sure that on the server, make sure that BPA is installed onto c:\bpa and you share the whole C drive. From there on, it is surprisingly easy.

    Is there a good market for bpa in Austin? - I might be looking to move back there in a year or so.

    P.S The manual is on the CD

    The manual is on the CD that BPA is installed on - it's a pdf - yep - surprised me too.

    Which folders require access on the server

    I'm just in the process of setting up my own network. I installed the software in the root of C, gave view access to the whole drive, and read/write/execute access to the bpa folder, and after running the netsetup on a workstation get a message that files are in use.

    Which other specific folders does bpa require access to?

    I would rather NOT give my cashiers full read/write/execute access to the WHOLE root of my server? Bit of a security risk if you ask me.

    There should be a hidden folder on the servers C: drive. It is called 'sysfile' and your clients need to have full read/write access to this folder
