Connecting to a Astera Server using Lean Client

How to connect to an Astera Server from the Client Startup Screen

After you have successfully installed Astera client and server applications, open the client application and you will see the Server Connection screen as pictured below.

Enter the Server URI and Port Number to establish the connection.

The server URI will be the IP address of the machine where Astera Integration server is installed.

Server URI: (HTTPS://IP_address)

Note: You can get help of your network administrator to get the IP address of the machine where Astera Integration server is installed. Or you can launch the command prompt and type the command ipconfig to get the IP configuration details for the machine and use that information to provide Server URI.

The default port for the secure connection between the Lean client and Astera Integration server is 9262.

If you have connected to any server recently, you can automatically connect to that server by selecting that server from the Recently Used drop-down list.

Click Connect after you have filled out the information required.

The client will now connect to the selected server. You should be able to see the server listed in the Server Explorer tree when the client application opens.

To open Server Explorer go to Server > Server Explorer or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Alt + E.

The yellow icon with exclamation mark means that the server is not configured. Before you can start working with Astera Lean client, you will have to create a repository and configure the server.
