Trouble shooting Tally Multi User: How to make it work on Network.

Many Tally users face difficulty in configuration of Tally over a network. Many ApniTally Readers have also faced this kind of Problems. I have discussed this thing in my earlier post also on How to configure Tally on Network. The configuration settings to be done are described in great deal here.
But still tally is educational on nodes and license is showing up on server then some trouble shooting is needed.

Reason of Trouble

If Tally license is showing at server and still nodes are at educational tally then two things are possible.
  • Nodes are not able to connect with the server.
  • License is not reaching the nodes.
One of the great tool to check if nodes and server are communicating properly is Ping command. Before giving ping command you have to assign a particular IP to each machine. Normally it starts with for local Internal network for server. You can further assign next ips on nodes. They can be and so on. If you have confusion on how the ip should be given then this article on how to assign an IP would help you.
Now after giving ip's you have to check if all computers are communicating with each other. It should be checked both ways. i.e. from server to nodes and from nodes to server. Give this command from each node would tell you if it is connected with server or not.

ping -t
Here is the ip of the server.
Request Time out as a result of this command means absence of proper connectivity. Check for cables and connectors etc.
Destination Host Unreachable means LAN card is disabled, check the LAN card status.
Reply from means proper connectivity.

If the first step is through then license is not reaching the nodes.

Take following steps.
Open internet explorer and write following command in browser
It should show
Tally9 server running

If not then sit on server and reinstall license file.
Go to Start-> Programs-> Tally9->TallyLicense Server

If the Install button is not Highlighted then uninstall the license and Install it again.
It would install the license again and now the license file would be available on nodes. Make sure that if there is any firewall software on server then it should allow Tally software and keep it unblocked.
If still nodes are unable to get the license file then you should shut down all systems including server and first start the server and then all nodes.
It would definitely work, otherwise mail me your problem. We can do a CrossLoop session.
