Got the two computers connected together Mark5 style. Not sure if I need a special Ethernet crossover cable
Gigabit Ethernet Controller
The x3200 M2 includes one integrated Broadcom 5722 Gigabit Ethernet controller for up to 10X higher
maximum throughput than a 10/100 Ethernet controller. In addition, the 5722 supports IPMI-over-LAN.
It also supports highly secure remote power management using IPMI 2.0, plus Wake on LAN® and PXE
(Preboot Execution Environment) flash interface. Optional PCI adapters offering failover and load
balancing between adapters are available for added throughput and increased system availability.
LAN wired - Integrated 10/100 mbps Ethernet
Some links regarding Aloha.
Aloha Pos Tips and tricks
- How to bypass Password Aloha's :
1. Launch Aloha Manager.
2. Go to Login - (before type anything) press Alt-X.
3. 4 sets of numbers will appear.
4. Use whatever username you want ( im using "admin" ).
5. Start with every the last digit of the number at the Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Left and Bottom Right and typing this 4 character password.
6. and type 1=q, 2=w, 3=e,4=r,5=t,6=y,7=u,8=i,9=o,0=p
7. example : i got 5941 then the password is torq
Why does software have unknown username and password? Might be simpler to forget this Aloha confusion and shop for different POS software?
Tried to install Aloha 5.3.47g Aloha Manager installs OK.
Here is a PDF file:
Can not find installation instructions for 5. Think 6. is close enough?
Get to this point:
If you are installing Aloha for the first time, you must run Run SetupTRM.exe from the TermInst folder on
the CD to install Aloha on the terminals in your network.
To get rid of all computer confusion, going to do a clean install of Windows XP, drivers and try again after following these instructions:
Quick XP server and terminal setup.

Most of this is the Aloha default setup.
workgroup = ibertech
servername = alohaboh
Static IP Scheme ex 192.168.1.100
NetBIOS must be enabled over TCP/IP
Set Lananumber to 0 of the aloha network adapter using lanacfg (see other posts)
TCP/IP media sense
Disable Media Sense in the Windows Registry
1. Run REGEDIT
3. Verify the DisableDHCPMediaSense value exists in the folder. If it does, double-click it and change Value Data to '1'. If it does not exist, choose Edit/New/DWORD Value and name the key ' DisableDHCPMediaSense '. Then double-click the entry and change Value Data to '1'.
Turn off simple file sharing.
A network share labeled BOOTDRV that enables read and write capabilities to the Aloha application software file server and FOH terminals. This share needs to be applied to the root folder or drive in which the Aloha folder resides.
create an aloha user with the same password as the terminals.
create an aloha folder on the server - copy the data and newdata folders to aloha and use the install disk to install aloha on the server - browse to install disk and run advanced.exe
You may need to adjust the login account used by CTLSVR.EXE (Control Server) and EDCSVR.EXE (EDC Server) on the file server to ensure proper operation with terminals running Windows XP. They should be the same login as the terminals to function.
The Hasp security key needs to be attached and a connection to the nic card must be made before CTLSVR will run as a service.
Setting up a terminal is pretty much the same other than the servername = term1 or term2 etc and the terminal install program.
There should be a termminal setup program on al of the existing terminals, copy it over and run it.
tek-tips.com website causes my browser to jam up. Love this phpBB
Coorsman seems to have a good knowledge of Aloha.
Please stay tuned for more computer confusion
EDIT Sat Sep 03, 2016 Learning my way around tek-tips.com Browser is not jamming up any more.
