Service manager Options

Stand-alone Station Mode

Stand-alone stations are, as the name implies, unable to connect to outside systems running PSIcapture for configuration or batch information. The security module is also disabled in this mode.  

Network Station Mode

Network stations connect to the Capture server for their configuration, batch management, logging, and security. When configuring a Network station, the associated radial button must be selected, and the Name or IP Address of the Capture server must be entered into the dialog box at the bottom of the window.  

Capture Server Mode

This mode allows this server to share the configuration settings with other PSIcapture machines across the network. Batch management is brokered via this server allowing for balancing jobs across multiple stations. Logging is centralized to this server for diagnostics, and security is centrally managed.
