Installation

Dec 28, 2012

To install CloudBridge Plug-in accelerator on Windows system:

  1. The Repeater*.msi file is an installation file. Close all applications and any windows that might be open, and then launch the installer it in the usual way (double-click on in a file window, or use the run command).

    Note: The steps below are for an interactive installation. A silent installation can be performed with the command:
    msiexec /i client_msi_file /qn
  2. The installation program prompts for the location in which to install the software. The directory that you specify is used for both the client software and the disk-based compression history. Together, they require a minimum of 500 MB of disk space.
  3. When the installer finishes, it might ask you to restart the system. After a restart, the CloudBridge Plug-in starts automatically.

  5. If the .MSI file has not been customized for your users, specify the signaling address and the amount of disk space to use for compression:
    • In the Appliances: Signaling Addresses field, type the signaling IP address of your appliance. If you have more than one Plug-in-enabled appliance, list them all, separated by commas. Either IP or DNS addresses are acceptable.
    • Using the Data Cache slider, select the amount of disk space to use for compression. More is better. 7.5 GB is not too much, if you have that much disk space available.
    • Press the Apply.

The CloudBridge Plug-in accelerator is now running. All future connections to accelerated subnets will be accelerated

On the plug-in's Advanced.. Rules tab, the Acceleration Rules list should show each appliance as Connected and each appliance's accelerated subnets as Accelerated. If not, check the Signaling Addresses IP field and your network connectivity in general.
