The FP2 Client requires the Windows Computer Name or IP address of the Server in order to function correctly.
During the Client Installation, you will be prompted as to whether this is a network installation.
Answer Yes if: the Client is being installed on any computer OTHER than the Server computer. This includes most Workstation in a LAN-Based configuration and all computers in an Internet-Based configuration.
If you answer Yes, you will receive the following prompt:
You should enter the Windows Computer Name or IP address of the Server computer here for LAN-Based installations. For Internet-Based installations, enter the External IP address of the router that serves the Server computer.
You can also modify these settings after installing the Client software from the Login Screen.
