Installing and configuring the Hansoft web client

Before team members can use the Hansoft web client, an administrative user must install and configure the required files.


The following components are required to use the Hansoft web client.

  • Hansoft server 10.1 or later with the SDK module enabled for your license. Contact Perforce Support for license information.
  • Users must have a regular account and license in Hansoft. The Administrator account, QA accounts, and ghost users cannot log in.

Note:  Before you install, check the system recommendations and supported browsers for the Hansoft web client and web service. If you already have a web server installed on the computer hosting the Hansoft web service, review information about port conflicts.
