Zero Configuration File Sharing Device

Pre-Configured For Use with 5 Minute Photo Loader/Viewer Software
Linux in the Middle by 5 Minute Photo

Most NAS devices are Linux based and are a very cost effective way of using more than the maximum number of connections (Viewing Stations) allowed by Windows (XP Home=5, XP Pro=10, Vista=10, Windows 7/8=20) with the 5 Minute Photo Loader/Viewer Software (Version 7 or Version 6.1 Pro).

With our LinuxInTheMiddle solution the 5 Minute Photo database and Viewing Folder is pre-configured and setup on a Linux based computer/device and shared as EventView (eliminating the security/permission settings on the Loader/Server computer).

The Viewing Stations are configured with name of the Linux device as the Server name. Viewing files and Database are accessed from Linux device rather than from the Server where the Loader is run. The Loader is configured to use a Custom Path for the Viewing folder and points to the Linux device.

This eliminates the need for a Windows Server based O/S on the Loader/Server when using more than the maximum number of connections (Viewing Stations) allowed by Windows (XP Home=5, XP Pro=10, Vista=10, Windows 7/8=20), since Linux doesn’t require CAL’s (Client Access License) for each connection.

Note: Performance of overall system is dependent on speed/power of Linux device, Loader/Server computer, Viewing Stations and the network components.
