How to access TimeTrex On-Site from other computers

Post by mikeb »

TimeTrex is offered in two different deployment models, On-Site and On-Demand. Please click on either of the links for more information regarding the advantages and disadvantages of both models.

Here are the steps to access TimeTrex On-Site from other computers on your local network:

1. Find the IP address of the computer that TimeTrex is installed on. In Windows this can be done by following these steps:

* a. Go to your “Start” button and select the “Run” option
* b. Type in: cmd /k ipconfig /all
* c. A command window will pop up and list your IP address, there may be several IP addresses in the list, normally your IP address will be similar to one of these:, or
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-A0-D1-B9-2A-08
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . :,
2. Once you have obtained the IP address of the computer in which TimeTrex is installed on, you can go to another computer on your local network, open a web browser and enter the following URL in the address bar:

Code: Select all

http://<IP Address>:8085/
For example, if the IP address was, you would enter this URL:

Code: Select all
If this doesn't work, it is likely that the IP address that you used was incorrect, your network isn't setup to allow such access or you have a firewall in place that is actively blocking the connection. In any case, because TimeTrex has no control over how your computer/network is setup or what firewalls/routers may be actively blocking connections, you will need to consult a IT professional or network administrator who has experience setting up network applications to help you.

If you are a small company and you don't have access to an IT professional with this type of experience, or just simply don't want the added responsibility of hosting TimeTrex yourself, I highly recommend looking into our TimeTrex On-Demand service. No software installation is necessary, no network settings are required, activation is instant and its extremely affordable.
