    Symbol libraries

      Symbol libraries (Symbols, Borders) are locked when opened by a user (no multi-user interface). Other users cannot access the libraries.

          Hi,

          You are correct - like designs editing symbol libraries is also a single user task.  If you partition your "borders" into multiple smaller border libraries (perhaps one for schematics and one for harnesses) then you would get multi-user access (one librarian in each symbol library).

          Alternatively, why not post an IDEA to support multi-user access within a single library (http://mentorideas.brightidea.com/iesd).

          Kind Regards,

          Nuri

            Ok. Thank you Nuri. But before I post the idea I would like to know if it's possible to get remote access to VeSys, e.g.using external desktop connection (to the server), sitting at home with laptop (workstation) and the dongle. Or must the dongle be connected to server?

             

            Thank you!

              We have customers who use Capital (and VeSys 2.0) over a Citrix server (this would be the recommended solution).  What kind of license do you have (dongle or network)?  If you have a dongle version then you could take your laptop home... and connect to the VeSys 2.0 database remotely (we have customers who do this, however the performance is heavily dependent on your network speed).

               

              Thanks,

                We use dongles.

                Do we have to replace the server name by the ip-address of the server within the XML-configuration file (clientprops)?

                 

                E.g.

                <images location=http://[ip-address]/images />

                 

                 

                 

                instead of:

                 

                 

                <images location=\\SERVERNAME\images />

                 

                 

                Is this what you mean?

                  Actually, the client applications (vesys.exe, vesyssymbol.exe and vesyscomponents.exe) connect to the manager using the "iorconnection" within C:\MentorGraphics\VeSys\config\clientprops.xml (the "images" parameter defines where JPG/BMP files live).  If you need assistance configuring this then you should raise an SR (first take a look at the installation guide).

                  Thanks,
