Q. What versions of SQL are supported?  
A. SQL 2000 or higher.  Note: SQL Express versions are acceptable.

Q. How does server duplexing work; what are the benefits?
A. Server duplexing allows for more than one DICOM Server instance to be configured to run on on server (under one service).  Put simply, this feature allows you to setup multiple DICOM servers on a single PC.

Duplexing is of particular use for larger hospitals or clinics that have multiple labs or departments that require separate archives.  Don’t spend money on extra PCs.  Don’t install service on multiple, hard to catalog PCs.  With a small amount of administrative effort, create rules on one PC for each entity requiring a separate archive.

Q. How do AccessPoint DICOM Server and AccessPoint WEB Viewer differ?
A. While it is true the AccessPoint WEB may be used as a DICOM Server, it is not nearly as functional as AccessPoint DS.  [insert link to product comparison]

Q. Can AccessPoint DS be used to store to removable media or network attached storage?  
A. Absolutely, yes.

Q. Must AccessPoint DS be installed on a server class system?  
A. Short answer – no. Long answer – as with any mission-critical environment, steps should be taken to ensure its long-term viability.  For storage, we recommend any device that supports redundant disks.  Steps should be taken to ensure that the system running AccessPoint DS, is always available for medical devices to store to it.

Q. Does AccessPoint Dicom Server require that a user remain logged on to function?  
A. No.  AccessPoint DS runs as a service.  Therefore, as long as the system is powered on and on the network, it will process data.

Q. Does the server accept other non-Freeland DICOM clients?  
A. Yes.  The Server supports DICOM Query Retireve.  As long as the client is DICOM-compatible, administrators may configure them for use with the AccessPoint Dicom Server.
