The Tekla EPM Remote Server allows you to perform Tekla EPM actions remotely. In practice, the Tekla EPM Remote Server enables running automated events and using the Tekla EPM Go mobile application.

Install the Tekla EPM Remote Server

The Tekla EPM Remote Server is installed when you install Tekla EPM. You can also install the Tekla EPM Remote Server separately, if necessary.

The Tekla EPM Remote Server is typically installed on the Tekla EPM server computer. To use Tekla EPM Go, a TCP port needs to be forwarded to the computer on which you install the Tekla EPM Remote Server.

To install the install the Tekla EPM Remote Server, do the following:

  1. Go to C:\Users\Public\Documents\Tekla\Tekla EPM\Backup.
  2. Double-click the TeklaEPMRemoteServerSetup.exe file to install the Tekla EPM Remote Server.
  3. Use the default options for the installation.

The Tekla EPM Remote Monitor window opens automatically after the installation is finished. The Tekla EPM Remote Monitor window is the user interface where you can manage the settings of the Tekla EPM Remote Server.

Start the Tekla EPM Remote Server

  1. In the Tekla EPM Remote Monitor window, click Settings to see the IP address and port for the database connection.

    You do not need to type a username or password.

  2. In the upper-right section of the window, click Sign in and sign in with a Trimble Identity that has access to all the Trimble Connect projects of your company.

    The Trimble Identity with which you sign in needs to have a Tekla EPM Go license. If you do not sign in with a Trimble Identity, the Tekla EPM Remote Server will fail to start because it does not have the necessary license information.

    Note that if the Trimble Identity cannot access all Trimble Connect projects, the status information of Trimble Connect projects cannot be synced.

  3. If a TCP port other than the default port (9154) has been set up for forwarding, in the Socket section, enter the port number in the Port field.
  4. Save the settings.
  5. In the Tekla EPM Remote Monitor window, click Start Service.

If the settings have been defined successfully, the Tekla EPM Remote Server starts running.

You can always check if the Tekla EPM Remote Server is running in the Tekla EPM Remote Monitor window.
