Hi Yunhu: I'm copying the other developers and the PI of our lab on this email.
I'll answer the last question first: how much storage space should the server have to be a Tranche server? The answer is that the server should have at least two terabytes. We have servers that range from 2TB-24TB. If you would like to work with us to find the best server set up, just email us back and let us know. The good news is that testing a server and starting a public server is very easy to start, with only a little configuration. The simplest way to test a server is to simply run the GUI. ---START THE SERVER FROM GUI--- Note: if you are on a public IP, your server might be used! It would be better to use a server with a local network IP (e.g., 192.x.x.xxx), though in the configuration section, there's a step you can do so you can use a public IP and prevent other users from writing to your server. 1. Go to [http://tranche.proteomecommons.org/] and click "Launch Tranche". 2. Log in. (If you do not have an account yet, visit [http://www.proteomecommons.org/autocert/signup.jsp] and sign up. May take a few days to authorize.) 3. In the GUI, go to Preferences > Server Configuration. Type in the port you want to use, and click "Start the server". Don't close this window yet! ---CONFIGURATION--- 1. You can skip this step if on local network IP (e.g., 192.x.x.xxx). Go to "Users" in server configuration. Find "ProteomeCommons.org Auto Cert". De-select "write data" and "write meta". This should help prevent writing by other users if you are on a public ip. However, the only person who will be able to write to this server is the user who was logged in when server was started! 2. Go to "Attributes" in server configuration. Find "hashSpanFix: AllowRun" in the list. Right-click on this and set to false. Then click "Save Changes". This will prevent the server from negotiating information with the network. ----------------------------- When you are testing the server from your local network, in the GUI, go to "Servers" section and click on "Add a Server" in the right column. Add the address, and after a few seconds, the server should appear in the list. Let us know what questions you have as you test the server. Also, if you decide to host a public server, let us know, and we'll walk you through the process.

I've forwarded this on to Mark Gjukich and CC'd Bryan Smith. They should be able to help you.

If not, can you forward emails to a responsible person. My PI Dr Austin Yang want me to set up a tranche server in our lab. We want to set up a local tranche server first. If everything works well, we can put it into public domain. Do you have any link for quick start tutorial. Generally how many storage is better for hosting a tranche server? Thanks for your information. _____________________________________________ Yunhu Wan Research Associate Dept of Epidemiology of Preventive Medicine University of Maryland Baltimore 410-328-2031 --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "ProteomeCommons.org Tranche Dev" group.
