Registering and Licensing a v4.5 Station

Installing and Configuring DocuNECT v4.5

Once you have installed the DocuNECT environment you will need to access the web site and continue the configuration. Access the DocuNECT web application by using the following URL:

<Server Name>/DocuNECT/<System Code>

Note, the <Instance Name> is the name of the site you entered during the DocuNECT Web installation.

Note, if you opted to use the SSL access during the installation and have a valid SSL certificate installed on the server then add an change the http to https.

Accessing the URL will direct you to the login page and as this is the first time logging you will need to use the default admin account and password that was provided to you when you purchased the software. The admin password is deliberately shortler than the default password length of 8 to force a admin password change for security reasons.

Once logged in click on the Stations option in the Administration menu.
