Step 3 - Client/ Server Configuration
In the client/server configuration screen make the following modifications
   "tally is acting as" - select either "both" or "server"
   "Port" - The default port is "9000" but you can change it to any other port.
Select a port number that is not being used by any other application.
Please remember that changing the port here will require any Tally Clients to connect on this Port.
So if you have other Tally clients accessing this server, you may prefer to leave this value unchanged.
   If your internet connection is through a proxy server, configure it here.

Find IP Address
For finCom to access the Tally, it requires the IP address of the system where TALLY IS INSTALLED.
Please follow the below steps to find the ip.
   Open a Command Prompt (in Start > All Programs > Accessories)
   Type 'IPCONFIG' and Press Enter
   Lot of information will be displayed as shown in the image below
   Look for 'IP Address' (marked by Orange Arrow in image below). This value has to be entered in the finCom app

Access from Internet
Configuring finCom to access the Tally data through the internet is different from accessing it within the network or intranet.
Before opening access to the internet it is very important to know the security implications of opening the port to the web.
There are multiple ways in which Tally can be accesed through internet. You will need to know the static ip address allotted by your ISP.
The most common method is port forwarding on the router. The following links provide information on how to do that.
