Getting started with the trial on OS X



Download the trial

Start by downloading the trial package from the Hansoft website.


When clicking the .dmg installer you will be presented with an installer prompting you to double click the Hansoft logo. By default the trial will be installed in /Applications/Hansoft Server.


Once the installation is completed the Hansoft client will start and you will be able to log in. The client is pre-configured with the settings needed to logon to the trial server, which is installed locally.


The Hansoft trial comes with three pre-defined users, the ‘Administrator’ account, which exists in all Hansoft databases, and two example users; ‘Example Proj Manager’ and ‘Example Team User’. The default password for all three users is "hpmadm".



Allowing other users to connect to my server

In order for a user to be able to connect to the Hansoft server the user needs the server name or IP of the server and what port the Hansoft server is listening to (default is 50256).


When installing the Hansoft trial on a Mac the server name will be the same as the computer name, which can be found by clicking the Apple symbol in the upper left of the screen(default). In the drop-down menu select “system preferences” and then “Sharing”. The server port is 50256 unless it has been changed. See the Hansoft sys admin manual for information on how to change the server listen port.


Drop down menu in the upper right corner of the screen. Find System Preferences.


In System Preferences find "Sharing", which is located under "Internet and wireless".

Here you will find the computer name.



The server name will be the same as the name of the computer. Once you have input the server name/IP and port, click connect to proceed to the login.




Logging in as the administrator

Once you have installed the Hansoft trial you will need to login as the pre-defined administrator. Through this account you can create additional users and also customize their administrative privileges, .
