How to configure the 4YouSee Sync Server

The 4YouSee synchronization server is a software that directs the operation of the Synchronized Videowall. It can be installed on computers with Linux or Windows 64 or 32 bits operating system..

Pre-Requirements for Synchronization Server

In addition to the requirements already mentioned in the synchronized videowall article, the synchronization server has some specific pre-requisites:

  1. The computer must have a Fixed IP.
  2. The connection to the machine must be wired.

If you do not know how to set the fixed IP to your computer, we recommend that you read the following documentation:

 

Remember: This fixed IP is needed in the synchronization server to configure the Master Player later.

In the example above, the operating system is 64-bit as is its processor. In case of discrepancies, the version of the operating system prevails. It means that if the operating system is 32-bit and the processor is 64-bit, the version to install for the synchronization server will be the 32-bit version.

Once you know if you should download the correct version, choose it in one of the following links:

To install, just double click on the file you downloaded, and it will ask you where you want to install it. Click on Next, until the installation is finished.

After installing, whenever you start windows the sync server will start too.

 

Configuring the Synchronization Server in Linux

The steps below consider that you are using Ubuntu Linux 14.04 or higher. In case you are using another distribution, it may be necessary to adapt the steps for installing the synchronization server.

Open the terminal by pressing the CTRL + ALT + T keys. With the terminal open, type the command below:

$ sudo su # curl http://files.4yousee.com.br/players/4yousee-sync-server/install.sh | bash

The first line is necessary so that you can enter as ROOT. After this command, the system will ask for your password. Note that it will not be displayed while you type it. After typing the password, press enter

In the second line, the synchronization server installer will be downloaded and the installation will start according to the linux distribution. The installer will also make the sync server boot along with the operating system. Also once installed it will also start the server.

To make it work, it is only necessary to restart the computer

 

  • To check if it is running, run the following command:
# ps aux | grep 4YouSeeSyncServer root     26784  0.0  0.0  54896  3916 pts/2    TN   13:38   0:00 /opt/4yousee-sync-server/4YouSeeSyncServer
