Hi,
I have a problem with the starting server and the starting networl nodes, they are explained at the chapter 8 of the photoscan guide, but i don't unederstand where i have to write this line:

Example for starting server:
photoscan --server --control 10.0.1.1 --dispatch 10.0.1.1

Example for starting network node:
photoscan --node --dispatch 10.0.1.1

i also attached a picture of the guide.

Thank you very much.

Hello bovvv,

These commands should be typed in from the OS console / terminal from the folder with PhotoScan Pro executable (also you can use absolute path to it, instead of browsing to the folder).

Hello bovvv,

Open cmd.exe, then you can use full path to the application, for example:
for server:
Code: [Select]
"%programfiles%/Agisoft/PhotoScan Pro/photoscan.exe" --server --control 10.0.1.1 --dispatch 10.0.1.1
for node:
Code: [Select]
"%programfiles%/Agisoft/PhotoScan Pro/photoscan.exe" --node --dispatch 10.0.1.1 --root //STORAGE/projects/

Hello bovvv,

%programfiles% - is a system variable that can be used instead of full path to the Program Files folder (it's name may be different depending on Windows localization), in the common case it stands for C:/Program Files/

Hello bovvv,

I recommend to use --root argument to define the path from the node to the network storage location.

To start the network processing, you need to open PhotoScan Pro in GUI mode on any connected machine, enable network processing in the corresponding tab of the Preferences window, specify host / root parameters according to the network server IP and path used to the network storage on the nodes.

Then prepare the project in PSX format and start the processing - PhotoScan will ask to use the network processing, if everything is configured properly, and you need to confirm it.
