This page documents how you can set up an Orthanc DICOM server and Aeskulap clients on different machines to view DICOM information stored on the Orthanc server.

Install your packages

On the server machine, install Orthanc:

sudo yum install orthanc


On the client machines, install Aeskulap

sudo yum install aeskulap

Set up Orthanc

Decide on a directory that will be your Orthanc directory. For a systemwide installation, make modifications to/etc/orthanc/orthanc.json. This is what my minimal file looks like:

{
  /**
   * General configuration of Orthanc
   **/

  // The logical name of this instance of Orthanc. This one is
  // displayed in Orthanc Explorer and at the URI "/system".
  "Name" : "Orthanc-EEE",

  // Path to the directory that holds the heavyweight files
  // (i.e. the raw DICOM instances)
  "StorageDirectory" : "/home/asinha/Documents/DICOMS/",

  // Path to the directory that holds the SQLite index (if unset,
  // the value of StorageDirectory is used). This index could be
  // stored on a RAM-drive or a SSD device for performance reasons.
  "IndexDirectory" : "/home/asinha/Documents/DICOMS/",

  // Enable the transparent compression of the DICOM instances
  "StorageCompression" : false,

  // Maximum size of the storage in MB (a value of "0" indicates no
  // limit on the storage size)
  "MaximumStorageSize" : 0,

  // Maximum number of patients that can be stored at a given time
  // in the storage (a value of "0" indicates no limit on the number
  // of patients)
  "MaximumPatientCount" : 0,
  
  // List of paths to the custom Lua scripts that are to be loaded
  // into this instance of Orthanc
  "LuaScripts" : [
  ],

  // List of paths to the plugins that are to be loaded into this
  // instance of Orthanc (e.g. "/libPluginTest.so" for Linux, or
  // "./PluginTest.dll" for Windows).
  "Plugins" : [
  ],


  /**

   **/

  // HTTP port for the REST services and for the GUI
  "HttpPort" : 8042,



  /**

   **/

  // The DICOM Application Entity Title
  "DicomAet" : "ORTHANC",

  // The DICOM port
  "DicomPort" : 4242,



  /**

  // Whether remote hosts can connect to the HTTP server
  "RemoteAccessAllowed" : true,

  // Whether or not SSL is enabled
  "SslEnabled" : false,

  // Path to the SSL certificate (meaningful only if SSL is enabled)
  "SslCertificate" : "certificate.pem",

  // Whether or not the password protection is enabled
  "AuthenticationEnabled" : false,

  // The list of the registered users. Because Orthanc uses HTTP
  // Basic Authentication, the passwords are stored as plain text.
  "RegisteredUsers" : {
    // "alice" : "alicePassword"
  },

  // The list of the known DICOM modalities
  "DicomModalities" : {
    /**

I've only changed the StorageDirectory</code, <code>IndexDirectory and added two Aeskulap clients under DicomModalities
