Modifying Internet Options for use with Optiflex
Prior to viewing an Optiflex image remotely from your computer, (using Optiflex Connect), it may be
necessary to modify some settings on your PC to enable installation of Optiflex Connect ActiveX
Honeywell’s Optiflex Connect ActiveX software is currently supported by the following operating
systems: Windows 98/ME, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Home/Professional. The software
has not been tested on Windows 2003 Server.
Follow the steps below to install Optiflex Connect ActiveX software for Windows operating systems:
1. Make sure that you have Administrator privileges for the PC the software is being installed on.
2. Open Internet Explorer and from the top toolbar click on Tools. Select Internet Options from the
drop-down menu.
3. From the Internet Options dialog box, click on the Security tab. In the Select a Web content zone
box, click on Trusted sites.
4. To ensure that the security level for this zone has default values, click the Default Level button in
the lower right-hand corner (see Figure 1 below).
