Recommendations for multi-user setup

Here are some recommendations on how to optimize your multi-user setup. For more information , see Hardware recommendations.

Server computer

The Tekla Structures server does not have a high workload and can be run on a relatively low specification computer. You do not need a commercial network file server. Its main task is to process network requests for object ID numbers. See Multi-user system for more information.

Client computer

Have as much RAM as possible (4 Gb or more). This speeds up saving in multi-user mode. See Saving in multi-user mode to find out more about the multi-user save process.

We also recommend using a fast multi-core processor, particularly for computers where you run numbering.

LVD ( L ow V oltage D ifferential) drives speed up the saving and opening of models).


Ensure that the TCP/IP protocols are set correctly:

  • Each PC on the same network has a unique ID number

  • Each PC on the same network has an identical Subnet mask


To find the IP address of a computer, enter ipconfig at the DOS prompt.


Some network operating systems may block user history data, which means that for example the Inquire object dialog box does not show user names.
