Product Requirements:

A) MySQL Installed (Local or Remote) 3.23.x or 4.x

B) Java JRE installed on IPnote Server Machine
Download J2SE JRE at this link: SUN JAVA JRE

After you have met the requirements and you have downloaded the package IPnoteV2_trial.zip, the installation can begin. Once you have extracted the archive, you will have 3 programs available to you.

  1. Setup-IPnoteE2-Server.exe (The IPnote Server Program)
  2. Setup-IPnoteE2-Admin.exe (The Admin Console)
  3. Setup-IPnoteE2.exe (The client application)

We will be installing the Server Program first as we need to establish the IPnote Server and connection to the MySQL database before anything.

Once you have determined where you will install the IPnote Server and you have met the requirements, we can now begin to start the IPnote Server install.

Installation

Locate the program file Setup-IPnoteE2-Server.exe (make sure you have Java JRE 1.4.x and a MySQL database installed prior to running setup program). Double Click on the Setup Program to begin the installation.

Select Next.

Accept the terms of the license agreement and click next.

Select the location where you would like IPnote to be installed or leave the default which is C:Program FilesIPnote EnterpriseServer

Next Click Install.

You have now completed the installation. Click Finish to configure your IPnote Server.

Server Configuration

When you launch IPnote Server for the first time you are missing the configuration file. This next step will help you create the configuration file for the IPnote server to run.

You will see the above dialog when the IPnote Server starts for the first time. Click yes to begin the configuration process.

The first tab is the database tab. Here you will fill in the information where your IPnote database is.

Host 

If the database resides on the same computer you can leave it as localhost or if the database is remote, then you can enter in the IP address of the remote MySQL server.

Port

Port you can leave as default unless you have changed it.

User

As the description says, enter a user that has rights to create a database and tables.

Password

Enter in the password that belongs to the User account you entered in previous.

Network/Heartbeat

Heartbeat

Poll Clients value represents how often the IPnote server checks for the remote client. Value is in seconds.

Retries before notify. This value represents how many retries (client checks) the server will attempt before sending out an email.

Network

Bind Server Port. By default the server communicates with the clients on port 2001. This can be changed.

Bind Admin Port. By default the Server communicates with the admin console on port 2002. This can also be changed.

SSL Key file. Server Client communications are done using SSL. This is the keyfile and passphrase. You should not change this.

Mail

These are the settings for the Notify email alert. Whenever a client that was previously reporting in begins to stop reporting in, IPnote server will send out an alert email notifying the admin that the specific client has failed to report in. Settings are also based off the Heartbeat section we described earlier.

User List

Clients

This is the list of client username and passwords (clients are referred to as the IPnote clients). More than one client can report in using the same username. You can create your own or use the pre-existing ones.

To add users, click on the "Add Client" button. Type in the username you would like to use and click enter. Click inside the password field and enter in the password for that user and click enter. (Always remember to click enter after inputting the username and password or the information will not get saved.

Administrators

This is the list of administrators that can log into the console. Multiple users can use the same admin username, but keep in mind that if a admin makes a change, it would not be immediately reflected on the other consoles until they refreshed.

To add users, click on the "Add Client" button. Type in the username you would like to use and click enter. Click inside the password field and enter in the password for that user and click enter. (Always remember to click enter after inputting the username and password or the information will not get saved.
