Configuring the eClinical Client Software

This document describes the configuration of the eClinicalWorks client to access PSM's data center.

1.) Log in as the local administrator (pc-name\Administrator).

2.) Add entries in the hosts file to resolve server names at the datacenter:

a.) c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

b.) 192.168.5.100 extrovert

c.) 192.168.5.101 virtftp02

3.) Modify the configuration.xml file tags to match the entries below, replacing xxx with your site #.

The files are:

C:\Program Files\eClinicalWorks\configuration.xml (on a 32-bit Machine)

C:\Program Files (x86)\eClinicalWorks\configuration.xml (on a 64-bit machine).

<server>extrovert:3xxx</server>

<ftpserver>virtftp02</ftpserver

<ftpuser>sitexxx</ftpuser>

<ftppwd>call for password</ftppwd>

The ftp tags are ignored by eClinicalWorks when the LoadFTPConfigFromServer itemkey is set to 'yes'.

4.) Configure the ODBC entry.

a.) Run C:\Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe (on a 32-bit machine) or C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe (on a 64-bit machine).

Configuration is complete, and the client should be able to connect to PSM's data center. Be aware that a data move to PSM's hosting is often accompanied by a version upgrade, so the client may require an upgrade. Please see Updating the eClinical Client Software if an update is required.
