Installation Procedures for Eagle Point Network
Software:

This separate installation routine should be used by companies who wish to run their Eagle Point
software in a networked environment and have a central license pool on a network to monitor the produ
ct
usage by the individual users.

In order to install the network version of
Eagle Point
you must have a password supplied to you to
access the installation routine. If you have purchased the network version of the software, a sticker will be
located on th
e CD
-
ROM cover. On this sticker is the password required to access the installation routine.
If you did not receive the sticker and have purchased the network version of the software or wish to
purchase the network version, please contact your Eagle Point
Account Representative.

Network Setup:

You must have Administrator Rights to install the Network Version of Eagle Point software.


If you are using the Network License Manager you
MUST

use the Client Deployment Mechanism to install
the software on the indi
vidual user workstations. You
CANNOT

install the software from the CD to the
client workstations under a Network install. If you have done this already all of the files will have a “READ
ONLY” attribute assigned to them. The easiest way to fix this problem

is to delete the software from the
individual workstations and continue with the setup below, if you do not wish to do this then please
contact Technical Support for more information on where to go from here.

Local Installation:

You are going to be creating an Eagle Po
int
Setup.exe

File, you will need to enter a location on your
network that all of you users will have access to. They will then run this
Setup.exe

file once you have
completed your setup and installation of the Eagle Point Software.

Be sure to use the Univ
ersal Naming Convention (UNC).

If you wish to have all installation options set for every user so that they are not asked any questions
when they run the client setup executable, leave the
Prompt clients for installation options

toggle
off
.
Toggling this o

Configuring the Eagle Point License Manager:

After the steps abo
ve are completed, the License Manager needs to be configured to start up when the
network services starts. You will also need to get your Server Authorization Codes prior to running the
client setup routines.

Remember the time difference between your time
zone and Dubuque in the Central Time zone.
There will be a business hour’s turn
-
around time for you to receive “Auth Codes,” dependent on
the amount of requests received. Eagle Point Software’s business hours are 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM,
with a lunch
-
hour at no
on, so plan accordingly.


The following sections outline the steps necessary to configure the License Manager to work on the
different network configurations.




Be sure to follow the steps outlined for the appropriate protocol. Novell Netware Networks are
i
nstalled using IPX protocol. Microsoft Windows Networks (Peer to Peer or NT Server) are
installed using TCP/IP protocol.


If you have installed the License Manager to a Novell network using IPX protocol, refer
to Request
Authorization Codes


Novell Networ
k (IPX)

(below).

If you have installed the License Manager to a Peer to Peer Network using IP protocol, refer to Request
Authorization Codes


Peer to Peer/NT Server Network (TCP/IP)
.
