Troubleshooting - How to use QRemoteServer with multiple Windows User

Problem Description:

I have a server where multiple users are logged in.

I want to run QRemoteServer for each Windows User.

Can I configure QRemoteServer user-wise? So QRemote can process user-wise requests.

Solution:

QRemoteServer has Windows user-wise configuration features. So you can use this feature for running QRemoteServer for each Windows User.

You need to configure QRemoteServer for each Windows user you want to use QRemoteServer.

You need to configure QRemoteServer on different IPs/Ports for each Windows. So conflict does not happen between any Windows Users.

For Example: If you have three Windows Users & you want to use QRemoteServer for each Windows User, then you need to configure QRemoteServer for each user.

In this tutorial, I demonstrate how to use QRemoteServer for three different Windows Users.

I have three Windows Users, as shown below.
1. Administrator
2. Jack
3. John

First, We need to log in with the User 1 (i.e., Administrator) account. User 1 will use the default configuration of QRemoteServer (i.e., Default IP & Port).

 

We will not change the configuration for User 1. We will change the configuration of User 2 & User 3.

 

We will exit QRemoteServer from User 1. So it will not create conflict in other users' QRemoteServer configuration.

 

You can find the QRemote Server running in the System Tray. Double-click on the QRemoteServer icon to open it

 

QRemoteServer is running with the default configuration.

To exit/quit QRemoteServer, go to File >> Exit.

Now we will log in with User 2 (i.e., Jack) & configure QRemoteServer. We will configure QRemoteServer on port 4501 for User 2.

Open QRemoteServer from System Tray & click on File >> Setting

Setting Window will open. Navigate to the "Advanced" tab & Enable the "Windows user-wise configuration" option & change the Port to the specified port & enter port no 4501 in the box and click the "Apply" button to save the configuration.

QRemoteServer configuration is saved. We need to restart QRemoteServer to load the new configuration.

To exit/quit QRemoteServer, go to File >> Exit.

Start QRemoteServer from : Start >> All Programs >> QODBC Driver for use with QuickBooks >> QRemote Server for QODBC

QRemoteServer is running on Port 4501 for User 2 (i.e., Jack).

Now we will log in with User 3 (i.e., John) & configure QRemoteServer. We will configure QRemoteServer on port 4502 for User 3.

Open QRemoteServer from System Tray & click on File >> Setting

Setting Window will open. Navigate to the "Advanced" tab & Enable the "Windows user-wise configuration" option & change Port to the specified port & enter port no 4502 in the box and click the "Apply" button to save the configuration.

QRemoteServer configuration is saved. We need to restart QRemoteServer to load the new configuration.

To exit/quit QRemoteServer, go to File >> Exit.

Start QRemoteServer from : Start >> All Programs >> QODBC Driver for use with QuickBooks >> QRemote Server for QODBC

QRemoteServer runs on Port 4502 for User 3 (i.e., John).

By repeating the above process, you can configure QRemoteServer for multiple users.
