The farmerswife server application uses a combination of different ports in order to provide the needed functionality for the whole farmerswife system. Please see the 'Server Ports and Access Tiers' for a more details description of the default port settings.
There are different access tiers for users to log in to the database:
- Desktop Client - for Advanced Users with full access to all licensed modules and functionality within farmerswife for the Creation and Management Projects, Resource Scheduling in Hourline and Long Form, Budget Planning, Invoicing and Reporting.
- Web Client – for Web Users, Creatives, Resources, to see own schedules, time report, book themselves or others depending on Permission Profile.
- iOS and Mobile Web Client for Android – also for Web Users, Creatives, Resources, to see own schedules, time report, book themselves or others, add new projects or contacts depending on Permission Profile.
You will also find installation instructions on the same page.
