Setup Questions

Beitrag von trent066 » 20. Jan 2020, 19:25

I am currently using 2.5 and use a Windows 10 PC as the "server" that is always powered on to manage my systems at home. I also use the mobile app. It works great. I wanted to get away from having my Windows 10 PC constantly powered on so I recently purchased a Synology NAS. I see that I can install Lights Out 3 on the NAS but it seems like a cumbersome setup. The documents state that I have to install the management console on a Windows machine. So I cant manage my settings and clients from the NAS? What about the mobile app, can that connect to the NAS so I can manage my systems or do I have to connect to the Windows machine? Does that mean I have to have this Windows machine powered on constantly? Thanks for your time and support in the past.

The cumbersome installation will be addressed in release 3.5 which is just around the corner. Then you only have to install Mono and Lights-Out without further configuration on the server.

Yes, you have to install the management console on a Windows 10 machine. The Windows machine does not have to be power on. Only if you want to make same changes or verify some settings In Lights-Out.
A web based UI is planned for Lights-Out 4 but that's far away.
