About Supported Servers
The Creo applications let you access the following types of servers:
Windchill based servers (Windchill Foundation and ProjectLink)
FTP sites (only for file retrieval)
Shared Spaces
To set up a connection, you must register servers using File > Manage Session > Server management.
Consider the following rules for registering servers:
You can register multiple servers.
When you register a server that uses a workspace or project, you must also specify the active workspace or project that resides on that server. The server and workspace or server and project pair constitutes a site.
When multiple Creo applications share a Windchill server and workspace, the server registration and workspace authentication on any one application is valid for all other applications that share the same server.
You can register only a single Pro/INTRALINK server.
Windchill PartsLink and shared spaces do not require registering with File > Manage Session > Server management.
After a site is registered, it appears in the navigator and also in the Creo application dialog boxes commonly used for file operations such as File > Open and Model > Get Data > Import. Depending on the architecture of the application, the site can be navigated using the Folder or Connections navigator, as shown in the following table.
