SX3 Loan Modification Software: implementation.

Next you will find possible scenarios in which you can install your SX3 Software in your office. Select the one that adapts to your needs. If you have questions, please contact our technical department.

 

 

SX3 Software.

Single office installation (LAN).

(Without a server)

 

In the previous scenario, you can see a sample SX3 Software implementation on a small local network that does not have a server computer. For an installation of this size you just need to interconnect the computers in your office and install the software on the newest and fastest computer in your office. This type of installation is good for offices with up to 10 computers (stations). For this installation you need:

  • A License of SX3 Software for the number of users that will be using the software in the office.

  • A regular (late model) PC what will act as Server in which will be installed the main SX3 Software and database.

    • This computer can be running Windows XP or Windows 7. Windows Vista is not recommended on this main Computer.

  • The local work-stations (Computers-PCs).

    • The stations can be running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.

  • A network hub. This is the piece of hardware that allows the computers in the office to be interconnected (wireless hubs are not recommended).

  • Every station requires internet access to be able to send email directly from the SX3 Software.

On an installation like this, the data is stored on the server but all the processes (calculations and generation of reports, etc) occur on the stations.

 

 
 

 

SX3 Software.

Single office installation (LAN) "with a Server".

 

In the previous scenario, you can see a sample SX3 Software implementation on a small local network. For an installation this size you just need to interconnect the computers in your office and install the software on the server. This type of installation is ideal for offices with more than 10 computers (stations). For this installation you need:

  • A License of SX3 Software for the number of users that will be using the software in the office.

  • A Server (fast computer with a fast Hard Disk) in which will be installed the main SX3 Software and database.

    • The server can run Windows XP, Windows 7 or Windows Server (32 or 64 bits) which is ideal. The server cannot be running Windows Vista.

  • The local work-stations (Computers-PCs).

    • The stations can be running Windows XP, Vista or 7.

  • A network hub. This is the piece of hardware that allows the computers in the office to be interconnected (wireless hubs are not recommended).

  • Every station requires internet access to be able to send email directly from the SX3 Software.

On an installation like this, the data is stored on the server but all the processes (calculations and generation of reports, etc) occur on the stations.

 

 
 

 

SX3 Software.

Internet Hosted Server (Remote Server).

In the previous scenario, you can see a sample SX3 Software implementation on remote server. A remote server is a server hosted by a Hosting Company that offer the service of servers that can be accessed via remote desktop over the internet. When you host the SX3 Software on a remote server, you can access the software from anywhere if you have access to internet. This type of installation is ideal for Companies with multiple (distributed) offices or users who need to access the software from multiple locations. For this installation you need:

  • A License of SX3 Software for the number of users that will be using the software in the office.

  • A Remote Hosted Server provided by a Hosting Company (or yourself if you have access to an IT Professional) in which will be installed the main SX3 Software and database.

    • The server must be running Windows Server (32 or 64 bits) 2003 or 2008.

    • Inform your Hosting Company Representative that you will need to install additional CAL Licenses (explained below).

    • Inform your Hosting Company Representative that you must have access to the root folder (C:\) in order to install your software. This is pretty standard but it is always better to ask!

  • The work-stations (Computers-PCs).

    • The stations can be running any operating system (this also includes Apple Computers).

  • Every computer must have internet access to access the remote server and run the software.

On an installation like this, the data is stored on the server AND all the processes (calculations and generation of reports, etc) occur on the server, the stations only see an image of what is being processed server side.

 

Client Access License (CAL):

By default (from Factory), remote hosted servers only allow access to 2 remote users at the same time (concurrently). You need to install additional CAL licenses in order to allow more than 2 remote concurrent connections.

 

A CAL License (Client Access License) is a Microsoft software product that can be purchased directly from Microsoft or any other retailer like www.NewEgg.com or www.Amazon.com or www.eBay.com at a discounted price. When you purchase CAL Licenses for additional concurrent connections you DON'T receive a CD, you only receive a one page document that shows the license number which is what you enter on the server to activate the additional concurrent connections.

 

Example:

If you purchase a license of SX3 Software for 5 users and you install it on a server that only allows up to 3 concurrent connections, only 3 users will be able to use the software at the same time. Once 3 users are connected to the server, any additional attempts to connect will be rejected as shown next:

 

 

Solution A:

If you need more than 3 users connected to the server at the same time: In this case, you need to purchase  Microsoft CAL Licenses for 2 additional users to reach 5 concurrent connections and get the most out of your 5 User SX3 Software.

 

Solution B:

If you have multiple shifts in your Company and you DO NOT need to have more 5 users connected to the remote server concurrently to use your SX3 Software, then you DO NOT need to purchase additional Microsoft CAL Licenses since you will never pass the limit of 3 concurrent connections.

 

 
 

 

Types of Microsoft CAL Licenses.

 

Microsoft offers a user-based CAL (User CAL) and a device-based CAL (Device CAL) for purchase.

 

This overview is for reference purposes only. Before purchasing, you should visit the "How to Buy" section for each product and consult your IT Professional regarding your specific licensing needs.

 

User CALs

With the User CAL, you purchase a CAL for every user who accesses the server to use the SX3 Software and services such as file storage or printing, regardless of the number of computers that you have in your office. Purchasing a User CAL might make more sense if your company employees need to have roaming access to the remote server using different computers (office and home) or simply you have more computers than users in your Company.

 

Client Access License based on user (this is the most commonly used):

Client Access License based on user

Device CALs

With a Device CAL, you purchase a CAL for every computer that accesses your server, regardless of the number of users who use that device to access the server. Device CALs may make more economic and administrative sense if your company has workers who share devices, for example, on different work shifts.

User CALs

With the User CAL, you purchase a CAL for every user who accesses the server to use services such as file storage or printing, regardless of the number of devices they use for that access. Purchasing a User CAL might make more sense if your company employees need to have roaming access to the corporate network using multiple devices, or from unknown devices, or simply have more devices than users in your organization.

Device CALs

With a Device CAL, you purchase a CAL for every device that accesses your server, regardless of the number of users who use that device to access the server. Device CALs may make more economic and administrative sense if your company has workers who share devices, for example, on different work shifts.
