What database is used in TeamWox Groupware?

SQL base is an Embedded Firebird free for commercial use. To store large contents the native implementation of file databases with automatic packing and content encryption is used.

We've applied a specialized file storage, because in most cases data are once recorded and then many times read. The storage engine also uses an efficient cache.

In addition we offer TeamWox Application Programming Interface (API) with all necessary interfaces for accessing SQL and file storages. Besides, instead of Embedded Firebird you can use the Standalone version, to which other applications can connect directly.

How to allocate a new additional IP address on a computer?

Use the right mouse button to open Network Neighborhood -> Properties -> Local Area Connections -> Properties (RMB)-> TCP/IP in Internet Protocol -> Properties:

  1. If your computer obtains IP address using DHCP server that automatically assigns local IP addresses to the network computers, then in order to allocate an additional IP on your computer, you should disable the "Obtain Automatically" option in TCP/IP parameters, then manually enter the current IP address, subnet mask and the main gateway.

    To know the current IP address use the ipconfig command: Start -> Run, enter the cmd command, press OK and then enter the ipconfig command in the appeared window. The result of the command will be: IP of your computer, subnet mask and the main gateway.

  2. If IP is assigned manually, i.e. fields of IP, subnet mask and main gateway are filled out in TCP/IP properties, then to allocate as additional IP press Advanced, select Add IP and enter a free local IP address of your network.
After that restart your computer. To check values of IP addresses use the ipconfig command.
