Download

KeyShot Network Rendering can be downloaded here.

Install on Windows 

When you have downloaded the installer, launch it and follow the prompts. During the install process you will meet following topics:

Folder location: By default Network Rendering will be located in Program Files and Network Resources in the Documents folder. You can change these if necessary.

Note that if Controlled folder access is enabled for the Resources folder (after installation), the PC won't be able to use Network Rendering. So you need to add the Manager/Worker services to the allowed apps in the Windows security settings.

Enable firewall access: if you have a firewall, you need to enable access for NR services in the firewall settings. Otherwise the communication to/from Manager/Worker won't be possible. Auto-update, Multi-casting and Auto-detection will also be impacted by the firewall.

When You have completed the Installation the Network Configurator will be launched. This is where you can configure your computer as client/worker/manager. Click here for more information.

Install on macOS

When you have downloaded the installer, launch it and follow the prompts.

If you have a firewall you will need to enable the Setup Firewall Rules in the installation type step. This will allow KeyShot Network Rendering to pass the firewall which is necessary for the communication to/from Manager/Worker as well as Auto-update, Multi-casting and Auto-detection.

When You have completed the Installation the Network Configurator will be launched. This is where you can configure your computer as client/worker/manager. Click here for more information.
