To start the program in the client mode, you should install DNC Precision using the regular installation package and manually edit a shortcut on your desktop. You should append the "/client" command line parameter to the executable name.


When the client starts, it asks for a remote server's IP address, login and password and store them after the first successful connection. Next time, you may type a password only.
