Uses the same installation files as used for Net-Probe. When asked to choose a Setup Type, select Custom. The option to include installation of the Web Interface is offered here. Once complete the files required would have been installed to the directory you specified.
The next step is to configure IIS or Permission Web Server.
For IIS 5.1 do the following:
The following links for Microsoft's web site may help those users that do not see the Security tab in the file properties windows.
For IIS 6 do the following:
It is recommended that you set the permissions on the files installed with care. You may not want anyone (anonymous user) to have access to the web interface, so it may be best to create a user group called 'NetProbeUsers' and add all users who require access to this group. Then set the permissions on the file system so only administrators and NetProbeUsers have access to the files. To disable anonymous access in IIS6 follow the following steps:
The resulting window has the option to disable anonymous access at the top.
There must be a directory called TmpImages in the Home Directory, this should have been created by the installer. The webserver will need to be able to create, read and delete files in this directory. If you decide to permit anonymous users access to the site then make sure the user that is used by the web server for anonymous access has read and write permissions to the directory. To determine which user is used for anonymous access follow the same steps above showing how to disable anonymous access to get to the Authentication Methods windows'. Here the username used for anonymous access is shown. You will need to ensure the Home Directory and the TmpImages directory has read and execute permissions for this user. Also add write permissions to the TmpImages directory.
In IIS ensure that the web site has been started. Now launch a browser and point it to your computer. The site should come up.
Installation of web interface is simplest if installed on the same computer that has NetProbe-Service installed. It could potentially be installed on any computer that can access the Net-Probe Computer through Windows Explorer. But if installed on a different computer than that of the service a manual registry modification will be required. The usual warnings regarding editing the registry apply. Care must be taken not to do the wrong thing or you may damage your computers configuration. Using regedit.exe go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\NetProbe\WebInterface. There edit the PipePath entry replacing the dot with the name of the computer with NetProbe-Service installed, i.e. \\myserver\WebInterface.
