Techkon SDserver software setup instructions:

In order to connect to the Techkon SpectroDens or SpectroDrive devices over USB or Wifi, installation of the SDserver background service or SDserver app foreground application is required (one exception is on Macintosh, direct USB connection to the SpectroDens is possible thanks to Techkon's "Mac SDK" drivers. The server is required on Mac for Wifi connections and for the USB connection that allows configuration of wifi settings, however)

Setting up the Server

The TDservice server comes in 2 forms that run on Windows (only): background service or foreground application. The background service is good for unattended operation that can auto-launch when Windows starts and is invisible to the end user (when sharing a machine). The foreground application (TDServiceApp) is good for manually launching & testing.

** IMPORTANT ** the TDservice Application (TDServiceApp) does not require explicit changes to the Windows firewall - other than giving permission upon first launch.
** The TDservice background service, however, (TDService) requires explicit changes to Windows' firewall in order to be accessible.

Running in a Virtual Environment

Users may want to run Windows in a virtual environment (such as Parallels or VMware). This is useful for Macintosh users wanting to connect to the Dens or Drive via Wifi.
