Installation in organization networks
This page will guide you through how to get Simumatik up and running locally on your organization's network. Two programs will be installed:
- Local server - This will perform all calculations related to the emulation on the local computer.
- Gateway - This enables communication with third-party software.
Linux and MacOS aren't supported yet, however our online servers can be used on any platform.
Installation in Windows
Step-by-step instructions for installation on windows networks, all neccessary links and instructions provided.
The Simumatik server will be downloaded as an exe file. Save it your PC, and execute it to install the server.
|Download server - Windows|
The Simumatik Server needs access to the following ports to work properly: 4842, 4880, 4848 and 443. In addition to that, the domain api.simumatik.com needs to be fully whitelisted.
Once you open the Server executable, a warning from Windows may appear, as seen in the picture below. To start the installation, click on 'More info' and a new screen with more information will be shown.
It is important to double-check that the publisher is 'Simumatik AB' before clicking on 'Run anyway'. Finally, just follow the installer instructions.
Once installed, you can start the server by searching for Simumatik.
When launching the server, a splash screen will be displayed.
If the server is successfully started, a Simumatik icon should be shown in your system-tray to indicate the user that the server is currently running.
At this point, you can go to the Simumatik APP, log-in, and click on the Local Server card. If everything went well, you should have entered the Workspace.
The Simumatik gateway will be downloaded as an exe file. Save it your PC, and execute it to install it.
|Download gateway - Windows|
The Simumatik Gateway needs access to the following ports to work properly: 2323, 4844
Once you open the Gateway executable a warning from Windows may appear, as seen in the picture below.
In order to start the installation, please click on 'More info' and a new screen with more information will be shown.
Before continuing the installation, please double-check that the publisher is 'Simumatik AB'. Finally, click on 'Run anyway' and follow the installer instructions.
At this point, the Gateway is installed. Next, you can go to the Simumatik APP, to test it. Log-in and enter the workspace as we did in the Server installation section.
The local server must be running in order to access the workspace.
