How Remote Client and Web Access communicate with SpaceObServer

Question / Problem

How do the Add-ons SpaceObServer Remote Client and SpaceObServer Web Access communicate/connect to the SpaceObServer? Do they connect to the SQL database to get the data for reporting, or does it connect directly to the file server as well?

Answer / Solution

The SpaceObServer Remote Client connects to the SpaceObServer database. For the right-click Explorer context menu to work, it requires a direct connection to the file server, but this is optional. Also, for displaying a few MS Office specific metadata fields (Author, Last Saved By, Last Save Date, Keywords, …) it requires access to the files as these metadata is currently not part of the SpaceObServer database.

The SpaceObServer Web Access connects to the database only.
