Unlike local GeneralKB mode, the client/server system consists of one server application, running on a server computer, and a client application, running on each user's PC. The client/server system is easily configured using a visual interface, making the system accessible to even novice users. Additionally, system user administration is simple and user-friendly. Don't worry if your Internet service is on Dynamic IP Address. Instructions in the Help File provide a free and easy solution to track the server's IP address and redirect it to a host name.
High information security standards are maintained by GeneralKB Server. This Database server maintains data integrity and controls access and security. It operates on the principle of buffered, read-committed transactions that enables the database to resist corruption if unexpected problems occur. Network bottleneck problems are also minimized because some data is processed at the server and some at the client. Moreover, only required data are sent to the client. Strong encryption is also a part of the server technology for better security. Only authorized users can login to the server over the network. Each user can be given specific permissions to read, write and delete articles from the database. The number of users is unlimited.
The Server Admin Utility provides the Server Administrator with powerful tools for managing user accounts and troubleshooting the Server program. It also provides logs indicating activity to prevent unauthorized access.
