Legacy Rosetta Stone Tell Me More System Requirements


Refer to this document for questions regarding the Legacy Rosetta Stone Tell Me More system requirements. These specifications describe how to adapt and implement Tell Me More Education LAN v7 on an internal network.

Specifications

Note : Be careful about the firewall on the server and workstations. You need to open the default port 81 if necessary.

Types of configuration

The main requirement for implementing TELL ME MORE® Education LAN v7 through your own network is the ability to deliver lesson access at an output rate of 2 MB/second (16 mbps) for each connected student workstation.
Depending on the server, this rate may not always be maintained (due to strength of  server connection, high number of student workstations, etc.). 

To avoid this problem, different installation configurations are possible:

Type of configuration Description Properties

Configuration 1

Copies the lesson content onto the server’s hard disk. Default configuration
Configuration 2 Makes a local copy of the lesson content on each student and/or Tutor workstation. The ‘Lesson Copier’ application enables the server lesson content to be copied onto student and/or Tutor workstations.
Configuration 3 Copies the lesson content onto the server’s hard disk as well as onto one or more auxiliary lesson servers. The ‘Auxiliary Lesson Server’ application enables the lesson content to be copied onto an auxiliary lesson server.
Configuration 4 Provides access to the lesson content from a CD-ROM for one or more student or Tutor workstations. Requires a CD-ROM for each workstation.
Note: The individual configuration of each student/tutor workstation can also be defined. To know more about this, refer to the Server Manager/Workstations section.

Examples of network types and their corresponding configurations:

Example: a network with a weak output rate (10 MB/s - 80 mbps) and few workstations (less than 10 workstations)
  • Configuration #1 for 1-5 workstations: the lesson content is copied onto the server’s hard disk 
  • Configuration #2 for 6-9 workstations: it is preferable to make a local copy of the lesson content on each workstation 
  • Configuration #4 to use a CD-ROM for each workstation
Example: a multimedia suite with a network output rate of 100 MB/s (800 mbps)
  • Configuration #1 for 1-25 workstations: the whole lesson content can be copied onto the server’s hard disk (Configuration 1).
  • For 25 workstations or more: the 2 MB/s (16 mbps) output rate to access the lesson content must be respected for each workstation connected to the network. In this case, it is possible to: (a) make a local copy of the lesson content on each workstation (Configuration 2); (b) copy the lesson content onto the auxiliary lesson servers (Configuration 3); (c) use a CD-ROM for each workstation (Configuration 4).

Compatibilities


Installation of the server on Windows
 
If there are to be more than 10 workstations connected to the server, the version of Windows installed on the server must support the simultaneous connection of the correct number of workstations.
Windows NT Server, Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2003 Server allow more than ten simultaneous connections, but the Pro versions of these Windows products do not.
Windows 95 and 98 do not have any restrictions on the number of computers simultaneously connected.

Installation on a non-Windows server

In this case, you must select a computer to be the applications server.
The installation is described in the section « Installation ».

Other compatibilities questions:
 
  • Will Tell Me More Education work in a a Microsoft Terminal Server and Citrix Metaframe environments?

    The software wasn’t developed for these environments and so it may function erratically. Each user must have their own Tell Me More network directory. 

  • Can Tell Me More Education v7 LAN be used on a MacIntosh computer?

    No. A previous version of the program can be used with Virtual PC on some Mac computers. For more information, contact the sales department of Auralog.

Pro distribution protection


The protection system is based on the number of physical workstations, i.e., you can only install the software on the number of workstations corresponding to your license.  Otherwise, you must manually delete unnecessary workstations by using “Server Manager”, “Workstations” tab.
