Deploy via Directory Services
You can deploy Neon Responders to 2000, XP, and 2003-based Windows computers through Remote Procedure Call and Remote Registry services using a directory service such as Active Directory. To deploy using Active Directory, log into the LANsurveyor computer using an account in an Active Directory administrative group (Domain Admins or Enterprise Admins). When you create your map, LANsurveyor will prompt you to deploy your Neon Responders.
If you have already created a map (or declined to deploy when first prompted), select XP/2003/2K Neon Responders... from the Tools>Deploy menu. The Deploy Neon Responder wizard is displayed, allowing you to select the appropriate computers and the schedule for deployment.
To install the Neon Responder for any supported OS, simply insert the CD-ROM into the client computer. Windows computers will automatically launch a setup application. If the setup application doesn't automatically launch, double-click on the "launch.exe" file to start the installation or navigate to the Neon Responder folder that matches the operating system on the client computer and launch its installer.
For Mac OS X systems, go to the "Neon Responder for Mac OS X" folder and double-click on the "Responder OS X Installer" application. For Classic Mac OS, go to the "Neon Responder for Mac OS" folder, drag the "Neon Responder" extension to the System Folder, and restart the computer.
You may also place the Neon Responder installation files on a server accessible to the target clients.
If you deploy the Neon Responder manually, you will need to password protect your Neon Responder using the Manage wizard.
More information on Neon Responder installation can be found in the manual, in the Read Me First file on the installation CD (or download installation folder), and on the Neon Software web site.
