Fast Facts
  • What is Workgroup Edition?
  • Workgroup Edition is “instant networking“ software that allows you to instantly and securely communicate, exchange data, and share resources with others using the wireless LAN (WLAN) capabilities of your mobile devices.
  • Who uses Workgroup Edition?
  • Workgroup Edition is designed for mobile professionals who need to interact with their team members when they are working together out of the office.
  • How is Workgroup Edition unique?
  • There’s no need for central access points, servers or Internet connections.
  • Workgroup Edition creates peer-to-peer collaborative networks on the fly whenever and wherever you need them.
  • Bundled peer-to-peer tools enable you to securely share folders, send messages, transfer files, share Internet connections and printers, and synchronize databases.

working in the office is easy
Working in the Office is Easy
  • Alan is working on a project with his team and needs to share data when it’s created.
  • Because they have access to a LAN or wireless network at their office, they can easily store project data on their file server, print to a printer and send files and messages to each other using Email.
  • But what happens if Alan and his team need to work at a client site where they cannot get a reliable, high speed Internet connection?

Wi-Fi Access Point

Create an Instant Network!
  • Alan arrives at the client site where he and his co-workers are given temporary offices near each other.
  • Although they still need to share information, they cannot easily get VPN access to their office network.
  • With Colligo and wireless laptops, all they need to do to connect together is click on the “Instant Network” button at the top right corner of Workgroup Edition.
  • Note: Colligo also works over a standard WiFi access point or Ethernet hub

Note: The default Instant Network doesn’t use Wi-Fi security. Set up secure Instant Networks by clicking Manage > Options > Instant Networks

  • This will automatically configure each of the wireless LAN connections in their laptops for ad hoc mode.
  • Colligo does not affect the settings you use for Wi-Fi back in the office.
  • Now Alan is connected directly to his co-workers’ devices and they can get started.

authenticate users
Authenticate Users
  • All data sent or received through Colligo is protected with SSL encryption, an industry standard used by large financial institutions.
  • Authentication allows Alan to confirm whether or not a user is indeed who they claim to be.
  • This will help prevent people from impersonating your team members in order to gain access to confidential information or resources.

Italicized users have not been authenticated

This icon is displayed to show that SSL encryption is on

Authenticate Users
  • The first time you communicate with someone you are required to authenticate.
