Install additional service stations (networked)

Add more service terminals at your store, apart from your primary cash register.

To have multiple service terminals,  it is necessary to have a dedicated  computer with the NexServ (NEXTAR Server) always running.  All of the other computers will be connected to it,  and will need to constantly communicate with this server to work in a local area network. It is necessary that your server runs  the latest version of the NEXTAR POS Software.

To set up terminals the first step is to access our website www.nextar.com and click "Free Download".

Then inform your email and click "download now". Wait a few seconds to it starts the download.

If your browser asks you if you want to proceed with the download, click "Keep"

Run the NEXTAR Software installer (setup_nex_en.exe). The NEXTAR Software installation screen  will open. Just click Next.

On the "Destination Folder" screen, select the "Network mode (you have more than one computer in your store)." Uncheck “This is my server” as you already have a server configured at your store. Then click Next.

Carefully read the terms of service and click "Install" to proceed if you agree.

The next step is to click "Finish" to complete the installation.

The NexAdmin will open at the login screen, trying to locate the server of your store. The program automatically searches  for your NEXTAR Software server on the local network. If it is unable to find it, you can do  a manual entry by clicking Settings (the icon that resembles a grey gear) .

All set ! Now just enter your username and password. Remember that the option for multiple service terminals is exclusive to the PREMIUM subscribers of the NEXTAR Software (learn more).
