One of the benefits/features of ProjectWise is great flexibility in the system architecture, due in part to its three-tier architecture, which separates the data from the applications. It is also due to careful programming that allows even the server application software to be split seamlessly over several servers. In particular, it is possible to separate the components that serve the Web-based clients from those that serve the ProjectWise Explorer Client.
Server components should be installed on the two servers as described in the Component Location tables below. In the split Application and Web Server scenario, the Web Server components act like a Windows Client to the Application Server. With this in mind, if the Web Server cannot reach the Application Server with its broadcast request for available datasources, then the Connection Server needs to be installed on the Web/Publishing Server. TCP Port 5800 needs to be opened between the Application Server and the Web/Publishing Server for File Transfer.
