    This is possible as explained in the above reply in solution 1 and 4.

    Can you define the AE of the viewers to encode the .x in your example? E.g. AE=viewer.1 for

    Then define in

    viewer.* 192.168.1.* 1234 un

    to do the trick



    2. this is not built-in. You would have to script that for instance processing the query and move command, best by adding an item for a users (e.g. ReferringPhysicianName = 'name of user'0

    3. Their PACS I guess


    Hi, is not about restrictions (that is dgatesop.lst), but only to lookup the IP address and port of an AE.

    Solution 1: (for C-MOVE) if you control the AE of the host, you can use e.g. the V* in

    Give your host e.g. AE = V127.0.0.1 then the line:

    V* * 1234 un

    Defines V127.0.0.1 as:

    V127.0.0.1 1234 un

    Solution 2: use a C-GET request.

    Solution 3: use DICOMWeb access.

    Solution 4: (for C-MOVE) use a script to add a client to as needed.


    And there is no log entry for RTSTRUCT or RTPLAN?

    In any case, the correct form of the statement is simply:

    # Configuration of forwarding and/or converter programs to export DICOM slices

    ForwardAssociationLevel = SERIES

    ExportConverters = 2

    ExportConverter0 = forward to veriqascp2

    ExportConverter1 = forward to Mobius3d

    The semicolon is only used if you have multiple statements, the after clause only for delayed export by e.g. series. This may be the problem, use only exactly the syntax as stated in the manual. Conquest is not very forgiving.



    dgate --move:

    Note that is is quite particular about the syntax. And you need to know UIDs of what your sending.


    DICOM move options:

    --movepatient:source,dest,patid Move patient, source e.g. (local)

    --movestudy:source,dest,patid:studyuid Move study, patid: optional

    --moveaccession:source,dest,patid:acc Move by Accession#, patid: optional

    --movestudies:source,dest,date(range) Move studies on date

    --moveseries:src,dst,patid:seruid,stuid Move series patid: optional

    --move:src,dst,p,st,ser,sop Move patient..image


    add a.NumberOfSeriesRelatedInstances=""

    to the query. You only get what you ask for. Note that asking for NumberOfSeriesRelatedInstances causes Conquest to a query internally. So nesting two queries may be just as quick.



    there can be no spaces in an AE, furthermore start with all defaults, i.e.,

    # Configuration of forwarding and/or converter programs to export DICOM slices
    ExportConverters = 2
    ExportConverter0 = forward to ServerA after 10
    ExportConverter1 = forward to ServerB after 10

    Conquest is very particular about its syntax, use exactly what is stated in the manual. Make sure ServerA and ServerB are defined in ACRNEMA.MAP.

    Hope this helps,


    If you want to try Conquest on Linux, this is an absolute minimal automatic install script:

    sudo apt install lua5.1
    lua5.1 installer.lua

    It will then ask to install prerequisites. If you allow that, then after it completes you must again run:

    lua5.1 installer.lua

    It will ask for an AE title (server folder name); then download all; compile it; configure it and install it.

    Afterwards the DICOM server and its web server will run.

    Note that the script installs or assumes Apache web server.

    This is what it looks like, with user input in bold:

    >lua5.1 installer.lua

    This will install Conquest dicom server and its prerequisites - continue? y/n: y

    that is a good one. The database entry does not update after each deletion, this would require a rescan of all objects within the study on each delete. I am reluctant to fix this as deletion is not a normal DICOM operation. Normally you would delete a whole study not parts of it. I will add it to the buglist - as a will not fix.

    best regards,
