If you are running the Network Version of TimeClick, you’ll need to find your server computer’s internal IP Address. The workstation communicates with the database stored on the TimeClick Server computer through the network using the server’s internal IP Address. Below is a detailed video on finding the IP address of your server as well as written step by step instructions on how this is to be done.
Follow the steps below in order to find your internal IP Address.
- Open the Command Prompt on the computer that houses your TimeClick database and is acting as your server. This computer has a gray TimeClick icon.
- If you are using Windows 7 or Windows XP, simply select the Start Menu – All Programs – Accessories – Command Prompt
- If you are using Windows 8, type Command Prompt into the Windows Search bar and select Command Prompt when it appears.
- The Command Prompt window will open. Select inside and type ipconfig and press enter.
- This will cause a lot of information to appear. Look for IPv4 Address. To the right of this is a series of periods and then some numbers, separated by periods. This is the internal IP Address of your server computer.
From here you will be able to enter this number to complete the installation of a new TimeClick workstation. If you need to reenter an IP address into the TimeClick workstation you will go into the Client Config option found under Start > All Programs > TimeClick > Client Config. Once you have entered the proper IP address you will have full access to your employee time clock software from your workstation computers.
