Chapter 13: Installing Harmony Cloud on Mac OS X

Configuring Toon Boom Harmony Cloud

You have the ability to customize the Harmony Cloud service. This can be done using your favourite text editor. 

Running Harmony Cloud Manually

If you do not want to run Harmony Cloud as a service, you have the option to manually start the Harmony Cloud server.

If at any point you need to start/stop or restart the Harmony Cloud server, you can do so through the SystemStarter in Mac OS X.

To start the service sudo SystemStarter start ToonBoomHarmonyCloudServer
To stop the service

sudo SystemStarter stop ToonBoomHarmonyCloudServer

To restart the service

sudo SystemStarter restart ToonBoomHarmonyCloudServer

Alternatively, you can start or stop all Harmony Services with the following commands:

To start all services /Applications/Toon Boom Harmony 11.2/tba/macosx/bin/Startus can be used to start all services
To stop all services /Applications/Toon Boom Harmony 11.2/tba/macosx/bin/Stopus can be used to stop all services

Network Setup

Setting Up a static IP

You will need to set up a static IP for accessing the Harmony Cloud application.

Opening a Port for External Connection

To allow other computers to access your Harmony Cloud server, it is necessary to open a port in your firewall. Harmony Cloud uses port 8080 by default.
