About Enabling Windows Clients for a Linux Server

Because of the differences in architecture, allowing Windows clients to connect to a Linux-based database server requires extra set-up, that is:

  • Windows uses the Samba protocol to share files. This protocol must be installed and configured to share your database's directories on the network.
  • Toon Boom Harmony's Link Server daemon must be configured to allow Windows clients to create symbolic links on the Linux server.
  • The server.ini configuration file must be set up to allow the Toon Boom Harmony Configuration Wizard to detect and set-up the database's shared folders on client workstations.
