The Meeting application. DICENTIS software server The DICENTIS software server is a set of windows services. These services do not have a user interface and are run in the background to control and monitor all of the DICENTIS devices and client PCs running the Meeting application. The software server also includes a license activation module.
Hardware requirements This section lists the minimal requirements for each part of the system. For an overview of which parts are required or optional, see the DICENTIS manual System Overview sections. A PC can be used for three purposes: PC running the server software in a multi‑PC system.

System Overview | en Network requirements If the DICENTIS Conference System is being used as a standalone system, it uses the so‑called dynamic link‑local addresses. This means that the TCP/IPv4 setting of the server PC and client PCs need to be set to "Obtain an IP address automatically". Normally, these settings are default and therefore do not require PC network configuration settings.
Note: This license is always required and must be installed first to activate the system. DCNM-LCC DICENTIS System Camera Control DICENTIS Camera Control enables the use of Bosch Onvif compliant cameras in the DICENTIS Conference System and DICENTIS Wireless System.

The secretary (or clerk) should use the Meeting Application on his/her PC to prepare meetings. If the secretary’s PC is in a different VLAN than the DICENTIS server, the Meeting Application cannot find the DICENTIS server. This is because the DICENTIS devices and the Meeting Application use the DNS-SD protocol, which does not work between different VLANs.
If you are unable to ping the DICENTIS server, you might require assistance from your local IT department. If you still cannot ping the DICENTIS server, the IP address can be used instead. However, this is not preferred because IP-addresses may change.
12.6 Downgrading DICENTIS software to a previous version Uninstalling DICENTIS software and installing a previous version will not result in a working system.
