3.2.1 Connect Problems

If

connection to a Host fails, typically this window will be shown:

This window advises you on how to overcome connect problems.

Here is some additional advice:

· Verify that communication can physically reach the Host computer:

If communicating across an IP network, execute this command in a Windows Command Prompt window:

PING <Host computer IP address>

This command will send four data packets to the specified IP address requesting replies. If positive replies are received, communication can physically reach the Host computer. If negative replies are received, check your network setup or consult with your network/system administrator.

If communicating across a modem connection using

Windows Modem

, the setup of your modem in

Windows may not satisfy Netop requirements. Try setting up your modem using

Serial instead.

· Verify on the Netop Host window Names tab that the Host will respond to the specified name or address with the selected communication profile. Read in the

Communication Device section about

the characteristics of the communication device used by the selected communication profile.

· Try connecting to other Hosts starting with Hosts close to you. Try using other communication profiles and other Host names or addresses.

· Read the

Host Security Guide .

· Consult with your network/system administrator.

· As a last resort, submit a support request to Netop Customer & Product Support.

3.4.4.2.6 Intel vPro Tab

The Netop Guest provides access to Intel vPro (sometimes also referred to as IAMT - Intel Active

Management Technology) functionality which enhances your ability to remote manage enterprise computing facilities. The Netop Remote Control Guest can access vPro even when the computer is turned off, as long as the computer is connected to line power and to a network.

Note: Due to a limitation in Intel vPro, it is not possible to establish a connection to Intel vPro on the same computer as the one the Guest is running on.

The Intel Setup and Configuration Service (SCS) provides tools to centrally set up and configure AMT devices. SCS serves as a server for vPro and is also called a provisioning server.

Depending on which permissions the user has, the following SCS realms are relevant when using the vPro Console that the Netop Guest provides access to:

Realm

General Info

EventLogViewer

Event Management

Remote Control

Comments

Required

If the user has permission to this realm, the Event Management tab will be available, but the Remove all and Filters and Subscriptions buttons will be disabled. So the user will not be able to change anything.

If the user has permission to this realm, the Event Management tab will be enabled and all buttons will also be enabled. So the user will be able to make changes.

If the user has permission to this realm, the Remote Control tab will be enabled and the user will be able to execute remote control commands.

Redirection Interface If user has permission to this realm, the user will be able to execute serial/IDE redirection commands from the Remote Control tab.

If the user has permissions to neither the Event Management tab nor the Remote Control tab, an

“Authentication failed” message box is displayed. This means that either User or Password is wrong or there are no appropriate permissions for the user in question.

Note: Even though computers contain Intel vPro technology, the AMT devices will not be operational until they have been enabled (also called provisioning) in BIOS.

Intel vPro enables you to:

Netop Guest

· Remotely access BIOS configuration of the managed computer.

· Remotely boot the managed computer from a floppy or CD-ROM image located on the managing computer.

· Retrieve and view the hardware log file of the managed computer.

The Intel vPro tab will be displayed at the bottom of the Quick Connect tab pane following the Windows

Network tab. When you start the Guest, the Intel vPro pane will be empty.

Right-click the Intel vPro pane to display a context menu containing the following commands:

Command

Scan IP range for Intel vPro enabled computers

Retrieve Intel vPro enabled computers from SCS

Description

Select this command to scan for Intel vPro enabled computers on your network. You can enter one known IP address to scan for or you can enter an IP range to scan. The computers found during the search will be listed in the Intel vPro pane by IP address. See picture above.

Note:

You can also use the Guest Inventory tab (Summary - Intel vPro

State) to find Intel vPro enabled computers on your network.

Select this command or press the Browse button on the Quick

Connect tab to retrieve Intel vPro enabled computers from Intel SCS.

You must enter the SCS Web Service URL. See also

Intel vPro Tab

(Program Options).

When you have found one or more vPro enabled computers on your network, the above menu will be extended with the following commands:

Command

Open Intel vPro Console

Description

Right-click a computer in the list in the Intel vPro pane and select this command to open the vPro Console from which you can manage the selected computer. You need a user name and password to log on.

Open Intel vPro Web Interface

Right-click a computer in the list in the Intel vPro pane and select this command to go to the Intel vPro Active Management

Right-click the Intel vPro pane and select this command to remove all computers from the list in the Intel vPro pane.

Log on to the vPro Console

1. Right-click a computer in the list in the Intel vPro pane and select Open Intel vPro Console.

2. In the Credentials tab of the displayed Netop vPro Console Logon window, select authentication method:

- Digest authentication

- Kerberos authentication

If you select Digest authentication, enter user name and password. Select the Force using secured

connection through TLS check box, if you prefer. Normally Transport Layer Security (TLS) is automatically detected and used when available, but if you select this check box, the vPro Console will only use secured connection to log on to the AMT device. If the AMT device is not configured to use TLS, you will receive an error message and the connection will not be established.

If you select Kerberos authentication, the tab will look slightly different, and either a current

Windows user account or a different user account (user, password, domain) can be used to log on to the AMT device. In addition to the Force using secured connection through TLS check box, you will see a Log on using current Windows account check box. This check box is selected by default, and as a consequence the User name, Password, and Domain fields are disabled, and the credentials of the current Windows user will be used.

Note: When using Kerberos authentication the console should be connected to the Host using

FQDN name (fully qualified domain name). For example, it is not possible to do the Kerberos authentication when connecting to an AMT device using its IP address.

3. If you select the Force using secured connection through TLS check box, a client certificate is required to establish the TLS connection when the AMT device is configured for mutual TLS authentication. Click the Certificate tab and specify the certificate to be used by first selecting either

Personal Certificate Storage or File in the Location list and then selecting the certificate in the

Certificate combo box.

The vPro Console

When you have logged on to the vPro Console this is the window that you will be presented with:

The vPro Console window contains a toolbar at the top and two tabs: the Event Management tab, on which you can retrieve and view the Intel vPro Event Log for the computer being managed, and the

Remote Control tab, on which you can access the BIOS of the computer, boot from a floppy or CD-

ROM image, and manage the power state of the computer remotely.

The Event Management tab

The Event Management tab displays the Intel vPro Event Log for the computer being managed. The events are displayed in the Intel vPro Event Log pane with information about severity, time, and entity together with a description. Selecting an event in the pane will display further details about the event in the area below the pane.

In the bottom right corner of the vPro Console window you see a security indicator, a lock icon. A closed lock indicates that a secured connection is being used, while an open lock indicates that an unsecured connection is being used. In the top right corner you see a network activity indicator that looks like a flower. This icon indicates that the vPro Console is waiting for response from the remote

AMT device.

At the top of the vPro Console window you find a toolbar with tools that you can apply to the log. In addition to the Refresh button, the Remove All button, and the Save to File button (save events to a .txt

(tab delimited) file or a .csv (comma delimited) file), a Filters and Subscriptions button is available.

Manage filters, alerts, and subscriptions

The Filters and Subscriptions button opens a window from which you can manage event filters, alerts and subscriptions. The Event Filters, Alerts and Subscriptions window is divided into two areas, on the left a tree pane listing the alerts and filters set on the AMT device and on the right a dialog panel. The dialog panel changes depending on the node selected in the tree pane. The toolbar above the tree pane contains buttons that you can apply to the tree nodes. The toolbar changes depending on the node you select in the tree pane.

Root node

82

If you select the root node, the dialog panel displays system information on two tabs:

· Use the System Sensors tab to see a list of sensors and a detailed description of the currently selected sensor.

· Use the Alert Settings tab to change the SNMP community strings for alerts.

In addition to the Refresh button on the toolbar, you see an Add Alert button that you can use to add a new alert to the tree.

Note: The alert ID entry in the tree can be edited. However, depending on you user rights you may or may not be able to change alert ID entries and associated filters and subscriptions. Nonadministrator users cannot change subscriptions owned by other users. Administrators can take ownership of other user's subscriptions (AMT 2.5 and later).

Netop Guest

Alert id node

If you select an Alert ID node, the dialog panel displays a list of subscriptions for the alert. When an alert with the specified ID is triggered on the remote AMT device, the PET (Platform Event Trap) or SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) event will be sent to all IP addresses or URLs subscribing to this alert.

Note: A platform event is defined as an event that is originated directly from platform firmware

(BIOS) or platform hardware independently of the state of the operating system or system management hardware. The Platform Event Trap format is used for sending a platform event in an

SNMP Trap.

You can select and remove one or more subscriptions (click the first, hold down SHIFT, and click the next) from the list using the Remove button below the list.

You can also add SNMP subscriptions from the Add SNMP subscription section at the bottom of the Alert Subscriptions dialog panel:

1. Enter the IP address you want to subscribe to the alert in the IP address field.

2. Select the Use custom community string check box (available on AMT 2.5 and later, disabled for older versions).

3. When you have selected the Use custom community string check box, the Community string field below will display public by default, but you can change it.

4. Then click the Add button to add the specified IP address to the list of subscriptions.

In addition to the Refresh button on the toolbar, an Add Filter button is available. Use this button to create a new filter with default properties under the currently selected alert ID. The filter properties are displayed in the Event Filter Properties dialog panel on the right. Click the Apply button at the bottom of the dialog panel for the new filter with default properties to be created.

On the toolbar you will also see a Remove button. Use this to remove all filters under the selected alert node and cancel all the subscriptions. You will be prompted for confirmation when you select the Remove button.

Netop Guest

Filter node

84

If you select a filter node, the dialog panel displays editable properties for the selected filter:

Property section

Filter settings

Filter criteria

Filter action

Alert settings

Description

In the Filter settings section you can enable the filter by selecting the Enable event filter check box. If you don't select the check box, the filter is disabled and no actions are performed.

In the Filter criteria section you can set various criteria for the filter.

When an event matches the specified filter criteria, the action specified in the Filter action section will be performed.

In the Filter action section you can set the action to be performed when the event matches the specified filter criteria.

Selecting the Log event check box will have the effect that events matching the specified filter criteria will be written to the log on the

AMT device.

Selecting the Alert event check box will have the effect that events matching the specified filter criteria will trigger the alert.

In the Alert with severity field you can set the Event severity field in a

PET alert. When an alert is generated either the event’s own severity or a severity for matching filters, whichever has the highest numerical value, will be used for the specified Alert ID.

Numerical values for severity levels:

00h Unspecified

Netop Guest

01h

02h

04h

08h

Monitor

Information

OK (return to OK condition)

Non-critical, a.k.a Warning

10h Critical

20h Non-recoverable

Example:

We have an event with the severity Monitor and 3 filters match the event. Alert with severity for one filter is set to Unspecified, for the second filter to Information and for the third filter to Critical. The value

Critical will then be used. This is because the severities correspond to numerical values: Unspecified corresponds to the lowest value,

Monitor corresponds to a higher value, Information corresponds to an even higher value, and Critical corresponds to the highest value of the four.

If all filters have the severity Unspecified, then the event's original

Monitor severity will be used because it constitutes the severity with the highest numerical value.

In the Alert ID list, select the filter's Alert ID.

You must click the Apply button to save any changes that you make to the filter properties. If you click Close after having made changes to the properties, you will be asked whether you want to save the changes.

command to show the

Caution: Typical computer users should never attempt to edit the Windows registry, as even minor mistakes can have disastrous effects on the operation of the computer. Computer users that are aware of the pitfalls can edit the registry to clean up the computer and modify its Windows configuration.

However, always take suitable safety precautions including backing up the registry to avoid ending up in a deadlock.

The Windows registry stores the configuration of the Windows operating system in a structured database. It is created when Windows is installed on the computer and is automatically modified when applications are installed and used and when users create or change personal settings.

The Windows registry is organized into five predefined sub trees:

Sub tree

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

Description

Specifies file and data associations that point to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes keys. Its keys determine how applications load and associate with data files.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Specifies the profile of the user currently logged on to the computer. Its keys that are part of the logged on user’s keys in HKEY_USERS take precedence over HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE keys for duplicated data.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

Specifies the Windows configuration on the computer and determines how Windows loads.

HKEY_USERS

Contains a DEFAULT sub tree that specifies the user profile when no

197

Netop Guest

user is logged on to the computer and a sub tree that specifies the user profile of the user currently logged on to the computer.

HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG Specifies the hardware profile that determines how the installed software uses available hardware. It specifies associations between

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software keys and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

\System keys.

Each sub tree expands into a tree structure of keys. This image shows the Display Panel

with an expanded Host computer Windows registry:

198

The left

keys pane contains registry keys and the right values pane will contain value records of the key

selected in the

keys pane.

Keys Pane

3.7.3.4 Test a Netop Script

Copy the file C:\test.txt on the source computer (in this case

Guest) to the C: folder on the destination computer (in this case Host).

Disconnect.

End the script.

A completed

Netop Script may look like this in the

Script

window:

272

Note: This is the script example in

Script File .

While creating and editing a script in the

Script

window, the lower debug messages pane will report any

syntax errors.

These syntax errors can be shown:

204

205

206

207

208

Error Description

101 Unterminated string, e.g. "test.txt (no end quotes).

102 More than 512 characters in a line.

302

303

Syntax error, e.g. SET OverwriteSystem=5.

A SET command occurs before a Script command.

The script ends without a ScriptEnd command.

A file transfer command occurs before a Connect command.

A Connect command occurs before the previous connection was ended.

Note: You can avoid most of these syntax errors by creating the script in the

Script

window.

A script will execute from its beginning to its end, in the

Script

window from top to bottom, completing

each Connect branch before proceeding to the next Connect branch.

To test a script shown in the

Script

window, click the

Run Script

button and see if the script executes

its actions and if it reports any execution errors in the debug messages pane. If the script fails, edit it and re-run it until it executes as intended.

You can view script errors in a

Netop Host is a server type program that enables the matching client type program Netop Guest on

another computer to access resources on the Netop Host computer.

Note: If Netop Host runs on your computer, you may experience that sometimes things beyond your control happen on the computer because a user that runs Netop Guest on a remote computer accesses your computer. If your computer belongs to an organization in which administrators manage the setup and security of your computer, you should not need to be concerned if such things happen.

However, you should report to your administrator if things that you do not like happen on your computer.

You can typically verify that Netop Host is loaded on your computer by this button in the notification area in the lower right corner of the screen:

5.1 Communication Devices

Netop uses the term communication device for the Netop adaptation of a generally available communication protocol or a Netop proprietary communication protocol.

Netop modules will typically use different configurations of communication devices for different communication environments. Netop uses the term communication profile for a named configuration of a communication device.

A newly installed Netop module will include default

Communication Profiles

. You will typically need to modify the default

Communication Profiles or create Communication Profiles

to optimize communication in your environment.

In the

Communication Profile Setup

window or in the

5.1.5 Windows Modem

TAPI (Telephony Application Program Interface) is a communication protocol that is used for making data/fax/voice calls, including the Windows applets HyperTerminal, Dial-up Networking, Phone Dialer, and other Win32 communication applications.

Netop Windows Modem is a TAPI based

Point-to-Point

Communication Device

that enables analog or digital (non-CAPI ISDN) communication through a telephone connection or a direct cable connection

(null modem) between two computer modems.

Note: Each Communication Profile that uses Windows modem can support only one Netop connection.

Netop modem communication requires the same type of modem at both ends of the communication.

Available modem types are: analog, non-CAPI ISDN and ISDN (CAPI). ISDN (CAPI) communication uses the

ISDN (CAPI)

Communication Device .

Configuration

When a Netop module is loaded for the first time and the

Setup Wizard is run, Netop can automatically

detect modems installed in Windows to automatically create

Communication Profiles for them in the

Communication Profile Setup

window.

You can create Communication Profiles for additional Windows modems from the

5.1.6 TCP/IP

TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a suite of network communication protocols. It includes among many others UDP (User Datagram Protocol) that is a widely used networking protocol.

Netop TCP/IP is an UDP based Networking

Communication Device

that will connect by UDP and

optionally communicate by TCP/IP (TCP) during a session, see

Advanced TCP/IP Configuration .

Note: Each Communication Profile that uses TCP/IP can support multiple Netop connections.

This section includes these sections:

TCP/IP Communication Profile Edit

5.1.6.1 TCP/IP Settings

TCP/IP offers three connect options:

·

IP Address

·

Name Response

·

Name Resolution

IP Address

You can connect by IP address across segmented IP networks including the Internet. The source module port number must match the destination module port number, see

Advanced TCP/IP

Configuration

.

If you connect from outside a network protected by a network address translation (NAT) firewall or proxy server to a network computer Netop module, specify the firewall or proxy server public IP address with the port number assigned to the network computer, e.g. 192.168.20.51:1234. Ask the firewall or proxy server administrator which port number is assigned to a specific network computer.

Name Response

Name response broadcasts a name, the first characters of a name or without a name requesting Netop modules with a matching enabled name to respond. These name response options are available:

· If a Guest connects or browses using the

Host name qualifier H::, the Host can respond by its

enabled Netop Name type name .

· If a Guest connects or browses using the

Host name qualifier U::, the Host can respond by its

enabled LAN User type name .

· If a Host

requests help , the Guest can respond by its enabled

Help service

names.

Note: A broadcast will reach only computers on the local network segment and computers whose IP address or DNS name is specified in the communication profile

IP Broadcast List

.

Name Resolution

Name resolution will resolve a specified name into its matching IP address. These name resolution options are available:

· In the

Advanced TCP/IP Configuration

window, check the

Use Netop Name Server

box and specify the Netop Name Servers that shall be used and in the

Program Options

window

Host Name Tab

Netop Name Server

section specify the Name Space ID used by the Netop modules you want to

connect to. Connect by any enabled destination module name, for a Host

help request a Guest

Help service

name. Netop Name Server will resolve the name into the matching IP address to connect by it

across segmented IP networks including the Internet. You can also

Browse for Hosts using Netop

Name Server.

396

· If a Guest connects by a name using the

Host name qualifier

DNS::, a domain name server will

Common Tools

interpret the name as a DNS name and attempt to resolve it into a matching IP address for the Guest to connect by it across segmented IP networks including the Internet.

Note: In most cases, if using the

Host name qualifier H:: a domain name server will interpret the

name as a DNS name and attempt to resolve it into a matching IP address.

· If a Guest connects by a name using the

Host name qualifier

LDAP::, the Guest will search directory services specified on the Guest

Program Options

window

Directory Services Tab for a user with this

name to connect by the matching address attribute that is typically an IP address. You can also

Browse for Hosts

using directory services.

Connect Problems

In case of connect problems, first verify that an IP connection is available by from a command prompt typing:

PING <Netop module IP address>

The PING utility will send four data packets that request a reply. If replies are received, an IP connection is available.

If an IP connection is available and connectivity problems persist, consult with your network/system administrator. As a last resort, submit a support request to Netop Support .

Resources

TCP/IP uses one port for sending and one port for receiving communication.

By default, Netop Remote Control will use port number 6502 for sending and receiving.

You can use other port numbers, but remember that the source module send port number must always match the destination module receive port number, see

Advanced TCP/IP Configuration .

5.5 NETOP.INI

When Netop is installed on a computer for the first time, a file named NETOP.INI will be created in the computer operating system directory (C:\Windows or C:\WINNT).

NETOP.INI contains settings that determine how Netop modules will be installed and loaded. It will be read when a Netop module is installed or loaded on the computer.

Typically, you do not need to worry about the NETOP.INI file, but you can edit it to apply certain options.

NETOP.INI uses the standard Windows INI file format with sections, keys and values. It is a plain text file that can be edited with a standard text editor like Notepad.

NETOP.INI can contain these sections:

·

[INSTALL]

: Specifies Netop installation settings.

·

[COEXISTENCE]

: Specifies settings for running different Netop modules on a computer at the same time.

·

[GUEST], [HOST], [GATEWAY], [NNS], [NSS]

: Specify startup settings for Netop modules.

·

[IPX]

: Specifies startup settings for the IPX communication device.

·

[NETBIOS]

: Specifies startup settings for the NetBIOS communication device.

·

[TCP]

: Specifies startup settings for the TCP communication device.

·

[DTL]

: Specifies special communication settings.

·

[AUDIO]

: Specifies special audio settings.

Other sections can be included.

Note: In the Netop KnowledgeBase , look into the Documentation section Netop.ini settings section to view all currently available NETOP.INI setting options.

5.5.1 [INSTALL] Section

This

NETOP.INI

file section that by default is included specifies the installation directories and program

folders of the most recently installed Netop programs. These specifications will be the default suggestions when reinstalling Netop.

429

Common Tools

5.5.2 [COEXISTENCE] Section

This

NETOP.INI

file section that by default is included specifies settings for replacing one running

Netop module by another and running different Netop modules at the same time.

Low level coexistence allows Netop Guest to be loaded on a computer that runs Netop Host or an extended Netop Host, temporarily suspending Netop Host, or vice versa. A Host connected to a Guest cannot be suspended. Guest connections to Hosts will be broken when a running Guest is replaced by a Host.

High level coexistence allows a Netop Guest to run on a computer at the same time as a Netop Host or extended Host. This will enable cascading remote control, i.e. a Guest remote controlling a Host on a computer that is running a Guest that in turn remote controls another Host. Running a Guest and a

Host on a computer at the same time requires that they use different Communication Profiles

. If

Communication Profiles that use

TCP/IP are used, they must use different

Receive port

numbers.

This section can contain these keys:

COEXIST=<1, 0 or 2>

The default value 1 will enable low level coexistence, the value 0 will disable coexistence and the value

2 will enable high level coexistence. If the key is missing, coexistence will be disabled.

LOAD_WARNING=<1 or 0>

The default value 1 will show a warning message when the user attempts low level coexistence. The user will have the options to proceed or cancel. The value 0 will show no warning message. If the key is missing, a warning message will be shown.

DEBUG=<0 or 1>

This optional key can be added to show the loader program commands executing in a separate window.

If the key is missing or its value is set to 0, the loader program window will not be shown. If the value is set to 1, the loader program window will be shown.

5.5.3 [GUEST], [HOST], [GATEWAY], [NNS] and [NSS] Sections

430

You can use these optional

NETOP.INI

file sections to specify non-default locations of configuration

and other files created and used by Netop modules, see

Other Locations of Netop Configuration Files .

MessagePath=<Path> that specifies the path to Name Server message files.

and/or

[NSS]

DataPath=<Path> that specifies the path to Security Server configuration files.

MessagePath=<Path> that specifies the path to Security Server message files.

Other keys can be included in the sections.

Note: The [HOST] key ActualBufferReleaseBlock=<Numbers> is information written by the

Host program to the NETOP.INI file. It is unimportant to the user but can be used by Netop specialists for troubleshooting.

5.5.4 [IPX] Section

This optional

NETOP.INI

file section can contain this key:

Max_Packet_Size=<Number>, where <Number> meaning the maximum communication packet size in bytes can be set between 512 and 5000.

This setting can be used to solve communication problems, see

5.6 Netop Configuration Files

The setup of Netop modules is stored in configuration files, typically with the extension ndb (Netop Data

Base).

When a Netop module is installed on a computer, configuration files that specify the installed setup are created in the directory where the Netop module is installed.

When a user loads a Netop module for the first time after installation, configuration files will be copied from the directory where the Netop module is installed to a user configuration directory.

The

Setup Wizard

will run for the user to create a customized setup, the settings of which will be written to the configuration files in the user configuration directory.

Directory folders for other Netop files created by the user will be created in the user configuration directory.

Netop log files created by the user will by default be saved in the user configuration directory.

This table gives an overview of Netop configuration and other files, their default location and contents:

Default Location of Netop

Configuration Files

.

When a user changes the setup of a Netop module during use, changes are written to the configuration files in the user configuration directory immediately or when the Netop module is unloaded.

When a user loads a Netop module, the configuration files in the user configuration directory are read to re-establish the setup that existed when the user last unloaded the Netop module.

If the user configuration files are write protected or access to the directories in which they reside is denied, user setup changes cannot be written to files and will not be retained.

The setup of a Netop module can be protected by applying a

Maintenance Password . Host user

configuration files can be

protected when the Host is running or connected.

If user configuration files are deleted, the user setup of deleted user configuration files will be lost. When the module is loaded after deleting user configuration files, a new user setup in new user configuration files will be created.

Most ndb files are written in a Netop proprietary format and cannot be read or edited separately.

This section includes these sections:

Other Locations of Netop Configuration Files

5.6.1 Default Location of Netop Configuration Files

If user profiles are implemented,

Netop Configuration Files will by default reside in Windows user profile

directories.

User profiles are implemented with Windows NT systems (Windows 2003, XP, 2000 and NT), and user profiles can be implemented with Windows 9x systems (Windows ME, 98 and 95).

· On Windows 2003, XP and 2000, user profile directories are typically C:\Documents and Settings\

<Windows logon user name>.

· On Windows NT, user profile directories are typically C:\WINNT\Profiles\<Windows logon user name>.

· On Windows 9x (ME, 98 and 95), user profile directories, if implemented, are typically C:\Windows

\Profiles\<Windows logon user name>.

By default, user configuration files will reside in the path <User profile directory>\Application Data\

<Netop module path>, where <Netop module path> is the full path to the directory where the Netop module is installed. If the Netop module is installed in the C:\Program Files directory, only the path from that directory will be used in <Netop module path>.

Note: Application Data is typically a hidden folder that will be shown only if you select to show hidden folders.

If user profiles are implemented on a computer, user Guest configuration files will by default reside in the user profile directory of the user logged on to Windows and will be individual to each user

(<Guest>).

If user profiles are implemented on a computer, user Host or extended Host configuration files will by default reside in the All Users user profile directory and will be shared by all users of the computer

(<Host> and <Gateway>).

If user profiles are not implemented on a computer, user configuration files will by default reside in a

Config directory in the directory where the Netop module is installed and will be shared by all users of the computer (<Guest>, <Host> and <Gateway>).

5.6.2 Other Locations of Netop Configuration Files

You can place Netop Configuration Files

in a non-default user individual or shared location by using these

NETOP.INI

file keys:

[GUEST]

DataPath=<Path>

HistoryPath=<Path>

InventoryPath=<Path>

PhonebookPath=<Path>
