Cache Server Installation (Optional)

Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted Cache Server is used to cache copies of requested server files, providing faster access to files on the database. It is installed on the same LAN as the clients; or is installed on a machine on the WAN that connects to the clients with minimal WAN traffic using any standard TCP/IP connection.

The cache server is installed as a system service; hence it can be installed on any Windows platforms which support service. It runs in the background with no user interface of any kind.
