Especially looking forward to testdriving the internet based image servers
I honestly can't believe it - it works.
You have to know a decent amount of setting up a network as most routers will block you from doing this sort of thing (for your own safety so hackers can't gain access to your data/system). So if you don't know what an IP Address is and you've never heard of "port forwarding" this will be hard to set up on your end. For the client (off site) its actually shockingly easy: just give them your host IP Address and port number and they connect immediately.
- The Capture Pilot Server assigns a port automatically once the server is "started". So if you're wondering what port it is running on just start the server first and then check the port number (advanced tab)
- We'll be writing an article next week on how to set up an Airport Extreme Base Station with Port Forwarding to allow the external access.
- This could work even with a laptop in the field without wifi, assuming you had a 3g or 4g wireless USB stick.
- If you're shooting to CF cards this still makes a lot of sense, especially if you set Capture Pilot to only share 4 star (or green tagged - whatever) images. Art Director across the country can keep track of your best shots throughout the day and do their own editing (e.g. marking number of stars) with no effort on your end.
Much more soon...
