Aloha POS

Quick XP server and terminal setup. by coorsman
Posted: 8 Jul 10 (Edited 9 Jul 10)

Most of this is the Aloha default setup.


    workgroup = ibertech

    servername = alohaboh

        Static IP Scheme ex

    NetBIOS must be enabled over TCP/IP

    Set Lananumber to 0 of the aloha network adapter using lanacfg (see other posts)

TCP/IP media sense

        Disable Media Sense in the Windows Registry
    1. Run REGEDIT
    3. Verify the DisableDHCPMediaSense value exists in the folder.  If it does, double-click it and change Value Data to '1'.  If it does not exist, choose Edit/New/DWORD Value and name the key ' DisableDHCPMediaSense '.  Then double-click the entry and change Value Data to '1'.
File Sharing

    Turn off simple file sharing.

    A network share labeled BOOTDRV that enables read and write capabilities to the Aloha application software file server and FOH terminals.  This share needs to be applied to the root folder or drive in which the Aloha folder resides.

Logging in
create an aloha user with the same password as the terminals.

Installing software:
create an aloha folder on the server - copy the data and newdata folders to aloha and use the install disk to install aloha on the server - browse to install disk and run advanced.exe

You may need to adjust the login account used by CTLSVR.EXE (Control Server) and EDCSVR.EXE (EDC Server) on the file server to ensure proper operation with terminals running Windows XP. They should be the same login as the terminals to function.

The Hasp security key needs to be attached and a connection to the nic card must be made before CTLSVR will run as a service.

Setting up a terminal is pretty much the same other than the servername = term1 or term2 etc and the terminal install program.

There should be a termminal setup program on al of the existing terminals, copy it over and run it.
