Tekla Structures multi-user server 2.5.0 hardware recommendations
The multi-user server allows users in the same local area network to work on different parts of the same model simultaneously. The model data is stored on a central server, so users need a fast and reliable network connection to the server to ensure good performance. If you have users in different locations, the cloud-based (separately licensed) Tekla Model Sharing features may be a better fit for you.

Multi-user server hardware
The server that is used as the Tekla Structures multi-user server does not have to be very efficient or have maximum performance. You can run the Tekla Structures multi-user server on the same computer as, for example, Tekla License Server, as long as you have dedicated different TCP ports for each of the servers.
The multi-user server can be used in networks that use IPv4, IPv6, or both the IPv4 and IPv6 protocols.
Set up scheduled backups for the model data stored on your multi-user server and store the backups on a different computer.
The computers on the same multi-user network must have a unique IP address and identical Subnet masks.
The computer running the multi-user server should have a fixed IP address.
The Tekla Structures multi-user server runs as a service. This means that the Tekla Structures multi-user server always starts automatically when you start the computer, and is always available when the computer is running.
