A couple questions about using an ETP server.

Postby KernalCheddar » Fri Aug 11, 2017 6:57 pm

I'm setting up an ETP server for our company to use so we can have the everything client on our machines pointing to the same location, but I have a couple questions.

1) The server we are running the ETP server on is usually left on but logged out of. however, even with everything installed as a service, we can only connect to it when someone logs into the server. is there a way to fix this?

2) Is there a way to have the Everything client always try to connect to the FTP server on launch, instead of manually needing to connect each time?

3) related to 2, I've noticed that even though everything is still running when you hit the "x" to close it, the client disconnects from the ftp pserver. is there a way to keep it connected?

thank you in advance, let me know if I wasn't clear about something.

Please try running the Everything ETP server as a client service (not to be confused with the Everything service):
  • You will not need the Everything service for this.
  • When you have setup your ETP server, install the client service:
  • Please make sure Everything is not running.
  • From a command prompt, navigate to your Everything.exe
  • Run the following command to install the client service:
    Everything.exe -install-client-service
    This will install and start the Everything ETP server as a service.

To uninstall the Everything client service:
  • From a command prompt, navigate to your Everything.exe
  • Run the following command to install the client service:
    Everything.exe -uninstall-client-service

2) Is there a way to have the Everything client always try to connect to the FTP server on launch, instead of manually needing to connect each time?

Set the Home search to connect to a ETP server:
  • On the Everything client, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Home tab.
  • Change Index to ETP server.
  • Fill in the ETP server details and click OK.

You might like to try the hide on close setting:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /hide_on_close=1

This will keep Everything connected to your ETP server.

Thank you! these all fixed my issues perfectly.

while I have you here however, I did notice one more issue. for some reason when a client connects to our etp server they don't have access to every folder indexed. I'm currently re-scanning the indexed folders (there are many, it will probably take until tomorrow to finish) and will update if that fixes the issue, but if that doesn't help, any ideas?
