Hi guys,

I'm new to WPS and I'm having some challenges in getting it to work properly.

I have a client/server setup where WPS 6.1 resides on a dedicated server (glorified workstation really) and my client baseline machines have the 'full' client install.

During a setup capture and the subsequent compiling, I have two options--Local or Remote. First off, I'm not entirely sure about the difference of these two options. I take it that Local compile uses the WPS install on the client to do the compiling and that Remote uses the Server resources. I am correct?

Secondly, neither option seems to be working all that well for me. When selecting Local Compile, the process seems to take a very long time--sometimes up to a few minutes--and the file transfer to my server is very slow and often just hangs for a while. When I select Remote Compile, the Wise Task Manager comes up and displays my compile task, however the job fails every time.

I'm guessing that there is some kind of problem in how file transfer is happening between the client and server. My server is a high-end workstation running Win 2003 server and the clients I'm using are all high-end desktops running XP Pro baselines. My NICs are all running with the latest drivers and my network connectivity is solid 100/full.

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I had a similar issue when compiling using WPS 5.x, I changed the "speed and duplex" from auto-detect to 100Mbps full duplex for all the machines, and possibly the switch it was connected to (can't remember, it was a while ago.) It solved my problem.

Good Luck,

Do you have any antivirus or firewall installed on the client? This can sometimes resolve in some issues with the transfer.

I have all NICs involved set for 100/full, but may need to look further into the switch.

No firewalls on clients or server, McAfee on server. May experiment with stopping some of these services on the sever.

Thanks for the input!
