Most vessels will have multiple computers connected on a network. With MMS Manage it's easy to provide access to all PC's via the vessel server.


Step 1. Download Installation

The first step is to download the latest MMS Manage (Vessel) install files:

1. MMS Manage - Vessel Web Setup 1.5.7.exe

2a. Windows (32-bit) Install Files

2b. Windows (64-bit) Install Files


The above files should be placed in a folder together. If files 2a or 2b are unavailable then the Web Setup will attempt to download them.


Step 2. Generate Installation Key

To install MMS Manage on a vessel you will to generate an installation key from an admin account.


To do this:

  1. Open MMS Manage, log in using an admin account.
  2. Click the cog wheel (top right), then "Settings"
  3. Click "Vessels" on the sidebar menu
  4. At the top of the page, click "Installation Keys"
  5. Select the relevant vessel and click "Generate"


You will then see a textbox with a long string of letters and number. This is the installation key, which must be used within 30 days. Carefully copy this into a text document without editing it ready to install.


Step 3. Install Vessel Server (optional)

By setting up a vessel server MMS Manage will only need to download documents once. All other PC's will then connect to this server to update documents. You can use the vessel main server, or any PC which is usually switched on.

  2. Once the install is complete, a window will open to setup the installer
  3. Select "Vessel Server" from the select box
  4. By default the server will use port 8080. If you don't know what this means then it's best to leave the default. Sometimes other software may use this port, in which case you will need to choose a different number.
  5. Enter an Installation Key (see above).
  6. The server will now start and begin to synchronise files.
  7. On restart, the server will start in the taskbar (bottom-right) you can check the IP/Port or open MMS Manage by right clicking the MMS icon.

    2. Select "Direct Connection"
    3. Enter a valid Installation Key (see Step 2 above)
