5.1 Communication Devices

NetOp uses the term Communication devices for the NetOp adaptations of general communication protocols and the NetOp proprietary protocols developed for NetOp applications.

NetOp modules use different configurations of

Communication devices

for communicating with other NetOp

modules in different environments. Such

Communication device

configurations that are given individual

names are called Communication profiles.

While a range of default

Communication profiles

are included when a NetOp module is installed for the first

time, a user will typically want or need to create new

Communication profiles

that are optimized for the user

environment.

This section explains

Communication devices

and how NetOp

Communication profiles

are created and

managed.

In the

Teacher

or

Student

5.1.1 TCP/IP

TCP/IP

(Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a suite of widely used network communication

protocols. NetOp School uses a NetOp adapted version of the TCP/IP suite networking protocol UDP (User

Datagram Protocol) named

TCP/IP .

NetOp School utilizes the ability of UDP to send and receive name identified

Broadcast communication

on a local IP network segment. UDP can also send and receive IP address and DNS name addressed

Unicast communication

across large segmented IP networks including the Internet. This combination of local network segment

Broadcast communication

and remote network segments

Unicast communication

enables running

physical

Classes

on a local network segment as well as virtual

Classes

on a large network or on the Internet.

PING utility

To verify that that an IP connection is available between two computers across a network using TCP/IP, on one computer from a command prompt type:

PING <Other computer IP address>

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

Resources

NetOp modules can use one TCP/IP port for sending and receiving communication.

We generally recommend that you use port number 1971 that is officially registered to NetOp School.

In special situations, you can use other port numbers but remember that the

6.2 NetOp Configuration Files

The setup of NetOp modules is stored in configuration files, typically with the extension .ndb.

When a NetOp module is installed on a computer, its setup will be stored in Installed configuration files in the folder where the NetOp module is installed.

When a user loads a NetOp module for the first time after it was installed, Installed configuration files will be

copied to a user folder to serve as

User configuration files

.

Unless the NetOp module is installed in a fully set up state by

deployment , the

Setup wizard

will run for the

user to create a customized setup, the settings of which will be written to the

User configuration files

.

Folders for other NetOp files created by the user will be created in the

User configuration files

folder.

NetOp log files created by the user will be saved in the

User configuration files

folder.

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 configuration files are written in a NetOp proprietary format that cannot be read or edited separately.

6.2.1 Default Location of User Configuration Files

If user profiles are implemented on the computer,

Teacher

User configuration files

will by default be stored in user folder of the user logged in to Windows.

Student

User configuration files

will by default be stored in the

All users (Vista: ProgramData) folder.

User profiles are implemented with Windows Vista, XP, 2000 and NT and can be implemented with Windows

ME, 98 and 95:

· On Windows Vista, user folders are typically C:\Users\<Windows login user name>.

· On Windows XP and 2000, user folders are typically C:\Documents and settings\<Windows login user name>.

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

· On Windows ME, 98 and 95, user folders, if implemented, are typically are C:\Windows\Profiles\<Windows logon user name>.

By default,

User configuration files

will reside in the path <User folder>\Application data\<NetOp module

path>, where <NetOp module path> is the full path to the folder in which the NetOp module is installed. If the

NetOp module is installed in the C:\Program files folder, only the path from that folder is used in <NetOp module path>.

Note: Application data is a hidden folder. To show it and its contents, on the Windows folder options window

View tab select Show hidden files and folders.

If user profiles are implemented, this is the meaning of <Teacher> and <Student> in the

NetOp configuration files

section table.

If user profiles are not implemented using Windows ME, 98 or 95,

User configuration files

will by default

reside in a Config folder in the folder in which the NetOp module is installed.

You can store

User configuration files

in other locations, see

Other locations of user configuration files

.

290

Advanced Tools

6.2.2 Other Locations of User Configuration Files

You can store NetOp

User configuration files

and other user created files in other user individual or general locations by specifying some or all of these keys in the NetOp.ini file:

[TEACHER]

DATAPATH=<Path>

LESSONPATH=<Path>

POLICYPATH=<Path>

RECORDPATH=<Path>

SNAPSHOTPATH=<Path>

TESTPATH=<Path>

SURVEYPATH=<Path> and/or

[STUDENT]

DATAPATH=<Path>

- where <Path> is the full path to the folder in which

User configuration files

or other user created files shall be stored.

In this case, this is the meaning of <Teacher> and <Student> in the

NetOp configuration files

section table.

6.3 NetOp School Communication

NetOp School uses two different types of communication between

Teachers

and

Students

, namely

Broadcast communication

and

Unicast communication

.

Broadcast communication

Broadcast communication

will communicate to all reachable recipients.

Broadcast communication will reach local network computers but will typically not pass routers and other network connection elements to reach remote network computers.

Using

TCP/IP

, local

Broadcast communication

can be extended by sending the same communication by

Unicast communication

to individual IP addresses and/or DNS names of computers beyond the local network specified in an

IP broadcast list

or received by using

NetOp Name Server

.

Unicast communication

Unicast communication

will communicate to a specific recipient.

Initial

Unicast communication

must contain destination computer or terminal server client session

identification.

TCP/IP

identifies computers by their IP address or DNS name.

Terminal server

identifies client

sessions by their Windows login user name.

IPX

and

NetBIOS

identify computers by their MAC address.

Responses to

Broadcast communication

and

Unicast communication

will be sent by

Unicast communication

that can pass the network connection elements passed by the communication responded to.

NetOp

Unicast communication

will (unless being extended

Broadcast communication

) request a communication receipt acknowledgement returned to the sender.

NetOp School uses

Broadcast communication

for these actions:

Announcement

An

Announcement

is

Broadcast communication

that does not request a response.

When a

Teacher

loads with a

Class

name,

Reannounces class

,

Changes class

or

Unloads

, it will send an

Announcement

.

·

A

Student

that is

Waiting for

the announced

Class

will return

Unicast communication

to connect to the

291

Advanced Tools

Class .

·

A

Student

that is

Available

will in response to a

Class

Announcement

return

Unicast communication

stating its

Status

, which will add the

Student

in the

Teacher

Available students

pane. If the responding

Student

is a member of the

Class

, the

Teacher

will by

Unicast communication

request the

Student

to

connect, which the

Student

will do by

Unicast communication

.

·

A

Student

that while connected receives an

Announcement

that the

Teacher

Changes class

or

Unloads

will disconnect.

When a

Student

Joins class

with the

Options

window

Class

tab

Be available for any class

option selected,

or with this option selected becomes

Available

, it will send an

Announcement

.

·

On

Teachers

that run a

Class

, the

Announcement

will add the

Student

in the

Available students

pane.

·

A

Teacher

that runs a

Class

in which the

Announcement

Student

is a member will by

Unicast communication

request the

Student

to connect, which the

Student

will do by

Unicast communication

.

When a

Student

from being

Available

Leaves class

or connects to a

Class

to no longer be

Available

, it will

send an

Announcement

.

·

On

Teachers

that run a

Class

, the

Announcement

will remove the

Student

in the

Available students

pane.

Browse

A

Browse

is

Broadcast communication

that requests a response from specified recipients.

When a

Student

Joins class

with the

Options

window

Class

tab

Browse for classes

option selected, it will send

Broadcast communication

that requests a response from

Teachers

that run a

Class

.

Teachers

that

run a

Class

will respond by

Unicast communication

to enable the

Student

to build a list of available

Classes

. If the

Student

user selects a

Class

in the list and clicks OK, the

Student

will connect by

Unicast communication

.

When a

Student

Joins class

with the

Options

window

Class

tab Connect to class: <Class name> option

selected, it will send

Broadcast communication

that requests a response from the

Teacher

that runs <

Class

name>. If the

Student

receives a response, it will connect by

Unicast communication

. If the

Student

does not receive a response, it will become

Waiting for <Class name>

to respond to a

Teacher

Announcement

of <

Class

name>.

Most other NetOp School communication including in-

Class

communication will be by

Unicast communication

.

6.4 NetOp School in Terminal Server Environments

You can install NetOp School on a Windows terminal server to run

Classes

between

Teachers

and

Students

in client sessions in a terminal server environment (TSE).

A

NetOp Gateway

that runs on the terminal server console can route communication between client session

NetOp School modules and NetOp School modules that run on network computers or other terminal servers to run

Classes

in a mixed terminal server and network environment.

This section will explain the particulars of NetOp School in a TSE in these sections:

·

Installation (TSE)

·

Teacher and student setup (TSE)

·

NetOp Gateway setup (TSE)

·

NetOp School functionality (TSE)

6.4.1 Installation (TSE)

On a terminal server, you cannot install by running the product .msi file.

Click Start > Control panel > Add or remove programs to install from the Add new programs button.

292

Advanced Tools

Always install

Teacher

and

Student

.

To enable communicating with

Teachers

and

Students

outside the terminal server, also install

NetOp

Gateway

.

6.4.2 Teacher and Student Setup (TSE)

Teacher setup

When a specific user in a terminal server client session loads the

Teacher

for the first time after

Installation

,

the

Teacher

Setup wizard

will run for the user to create an initial personal

Teacher

setup.

In the

Class management

window, click

Windows login name

to initially use this name option for the

Student display name

because all

Students

in a TSE share the same

Computer name

.

In the

Communication profile

window, select Terminal server to enable communicating in the TSE.

The

Teacher

User configuration files

and user created files will be stored in the user's user profile folder on

the terminal server to apply when loading the

Teacher

from the user's terminal server client session.

Student setup

When any user in a terminal server client session loads the

Student

for the first time after

Installation

, the

Student

Setup wizard

will run for the user to create an initial general

Student

setup.

In the

Classroom

window, click the preferred

Class

connect option and in the

Identify student by

drop-down box select an option that is not based on the computer name because all

Students

in a TSE share the same

computer name.

In the

Communication profile

window, select Terminal server to enable communicating in the TSE.

The

Student

User configuration files

will be stored in the All users folder on the terminal server to apply when

any user loads the

Student

from a terminal server client session.

Protected student setup

To apply a uniform protected

Student

setup that will prevent

Student

users from changing the

Student

setup

to disrupt the

Class

environment, an administrator should set up the

Student

with maximum

Protection password

protection before other users are allowed to load the

Student .

Individual student setup

In an adult teaching environment, you may prefer to apply an individual

Student

setup for each user.

To store

Student

User configuration files

in each user's user profile folder on the terminal server, assuming that the

Student

is installed in its default folder add this key in the terminal server

NetOp.ini

file

[STUDENT]

section:

DATAPATH=%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Danware Data\NetOp School\Student\

6.4.3 NetOp Gateway Setup (TSE)

To enable communication between inside TSE

Teachers

and

Students

and outside TSE

Teachers

and

Students

, a correctly set up

NetOp Gateway

must be running on the terminal server console.

NetOp Gateway

is an extended NetOp Remote Control Host with the capability to route communication

between different

Communication devices

.

With

NetOp School in TSE

, the task is to route between inside TSE communication that uses the

Terminal server

Communication device

and outside TSE communication that uses typically the

TCP/IP

Communication device .

NetOp Gateway

setup in general is explained in the NetOp Remote Control documentation that will be

available with

NetOp Gateway

. Pay special attention to this:

· Set up

NetOp Gateway

from the terminal server keyboard, mouse and screen (the terminal server

console).

· Be sure to observe the NetOp net number rules, particularly if multiple terminal servers are connected to

293

Advanced Tools

the same network.

· When installed,

NetOp Gateway

will in the

Advanced TCP/IP configuration

window typically specify the

NetOp Remote Control default port number 6502. Be sure to change it into your NetOp School port number, typically 1971.

·

If

Teachers

and

Students

running on one terminal server shall communicate with

Teachers

and

Students

running on another terminal server connected to the same network, add these keys to the

NetOp.ini

file

[DTL]

section on both terminal servers:

GWRestrictedBroadcast=0

GWAllowFullBroadcast=1

Explanation: Routing communication through two

NetOp Gateways

across a network is generally disabled

because it can in some setups cause an uncontrolled propagation of network traffic (broadcast storm).

These keys will safely enable communication through two TSE

NetOp Gateways

across a network.

6.4.4 NetOp School Functionality (TSE)

NetOp School has in most respects the same functionality in a TSE as in a network environment. However,

some

Teacher

Commands

actions work differently:

·

Log off

,

Restart

and

Shut down

will log off the

Student

user from the terminal server client session.

Caution: The same commands executed on a

Student

that runs on the terminal server console will execute

like in a network environment affecting the entire terminal server.

6.5 NetOp Name Management

To connect swiftly between network computer

Teachers

and

Students

across large segmented networks

including the Internet without the need to specify destination addresses in an

IP broadcast list

, use

NetOp name management

.

NetOp name management

runs using

NetOp Name Server

that is an extended NetOp Remote Control Host with the capability to resolve the names of NetOp modules that communicate using the

TCP/IP

Communication device

into their IP address.

To use

NetOp name management

, in the selected

TCP/IP

Communication profile

Advanced TCP/IP configuration

window

NetOp Name Server

section check the

Use NetOp Name Server

box and specify in the

Primary

and

Secondary

fields the DNS name or IP address of the

NetOp Name Servers

you will use. In the

Teacher

or

Student

Options

window

Connection

tab

NetOp Name Server

section

Name space ID

field,

specify the up to 32 characters word that identifies your private name space. All

Teachers

and

Students

that

shall connect by

NetOp name management

must specify the same

NetOp Name Servers

and

Name space

ID

.

When you connect by a

Class

or

Student

name,

NetOp Name Server

will resolve it into its matching IP address by which you will connect.

Two

NetOp Name Servers

with the DNS names nns1.netop.com and nns2.netop.dk run permanently on the

Internet for public use. Your private

Name space ID

will ensure full privacy.

NetOp Name Server

is also available for private installation.

When a NetOp module that uses

NetOp name management

starts communicating (

Teacher

loads running a

Class

,

Student

Joins class

), it will send its names and IP address to

NetOp Name Server

to enable resolving names into the matching IP address. To ensure that the stored information is always up to date,

NetOp

Name Server

will request renewal of the information every few minutes and delete information that is not

renewed.

For further details on

NetOp name management

, see the www.netop.com

website Support section

KnowledgeBase section Documentation section Manuals section.

NetOp name management

documentation

is included in the NetOp Remote Control Administrator's manual.
