About Supporting Windows Clients for macOS Servers

A macOS server can natively handle requests from macOS and GNU/Linux clients. However, in order to allow Windows based clients to connect to the server, extra steps must be followed:

  • The Link Server daemon must be installed. This allows Windows clients to create symbolic links on your macOS server.
  • Your database files must be shared via the Samba protocol, which is used by Windows clients to access the database.
  • The server.ini file must be filled with information on your database server and its scene data storage spaces. This allows Configuration Wizard to configure Windows clients automatically.
