KB101: Indigo. Installing the client

Once you have installed the client and server software (using KB100), if you have an additional Mac, you can install just the client.  This is useful if you are running the main Mac as a headless system i.e. no keyboard or monitor.

Step1: Downloading and installing Indigo

Indigo should be downloaded and installed directly from Indigo Domatica. You can either get the trial version, or if you are already a registered user, get the full version from http://www.indigodomo.com/downloads.html

Once you have the package downloaded, double click on the installer:

Full Installer

Follow the steps through the installer until you get to the ‘Installation Type’ then click on ‘Customise’ and unselect everything apart from the client:

Custom Install

Select ‘Install’ and wait for it to complete.

Step 2: Connecting to the server

Launch Indigo from the launchpad icon.  You will be presented with the following:

Remote Connect

Choose ‘Connect to Remote Server’ and enter the IP address of your server:

Remote IP

Then enter your username and password.  This is the Indigo username not the Mac username, but you may have set them to be the same:

Remote Username

Indigo should then start.
