If Solar is installed, but the shortcuts have disappeared:
Have the user remove all Solar desktop shortcuts
Control Panel -> Java
On the “General” tab, find “Temporary Internet Files”, click “View…”
Right-click on Solar -> Uninstall Shortcuts
Right-click on Solar again -> Install Shortcuts
To give users a direct link from which to install or launch Solar, you may send a hyperlink or create shortcut directly to the web start URL. To obtain this URL, right-click on the Click Here to Install Solar Eclipse link and copy the URL. The URL should be similar to to following:
NOTE: Replace lp1 with the name of the printer being configured (lp1, lp20, etc.)
Spooler -> Device -> Maintain
Use ENTER to advance, selecting all defaults unless otherwise specified.
Name = LP1 (shows all caps)
Path = /dev/null
Driver = lp1.dvr (ignore error)
Lock = lock.lp1
Press Enter several times, accepting the defaults, until done.
ESC -> Q -> ENTER to exit
Create the Linux print queue, with the following variables adjusted appropriately:
lp1: the name of the printer being configured (lp1, lp20, etc.)
socket: the communications protocol to be used. While the default socket setting works for most printers, some Zebra and other printers prefer to use the lpd communications protocol (lpd://).
lp1 or 192.168.1.123: the hostname or IP address of the printer
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p lp1 -E -v socket://lp1
If you created the print queue using a hostname (ie lp1) instead of an IP address (ie 192.168.1.123) in the previous step, you’ll need to make certain the server can resolve the hostname. If you have not yet added the hostname to your /etc/hosts file, do so now using the following command (take note the double greater-than symbols):
Make sure both the DRAC (highlighted in green below) and 1st LAN ports (highlighted in red) are plugged into your LAN. (The DRAC port is marked with a wrench icon)
Example: Dell PowerEdge R710
Example: Dell PowerEdge T410:
If the server shipped from Epicor, you may skip this step. If the server shipped directly from the vendor, insert the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 64-bit installation DVD. If the server did not come with RHEL5 media, download and burn the latest DVD image from here.
If you need to change your Eclipse user’s OS password (the one entered at the “white” Eterm login screen):
Log into Eterm
At the TCL prompt (; semicolon), type sh and hit ENTER
At the user’s shell prompt ($ dollar sign), type passwd and hit ENTER
Follow the prompts to set your new password
When finished, type exit to exit the shell.
Hit ESC to exit TCL mode
If your new password is not being accepted, you may be violating your company’s password policy by attempting to set a password that is too short or based on a dictionary word. You will need to contact your system administrator to set your password or relax the password restrictions. If you would like your Eterm users to have no OS password, please see How do I set a blank user password in Linux?
Before adding or changing a modem, verify the port name.
On Linux, you can typically get a list of serial ports using:
ls -l /dev/tty*
On AIX, you can get a list of the serial ports using:
lsdev -Cc tty
Once you have identified the appropriate serial port, you may continue with adding or changing the modem(s) in VSI-FAX.
If you are having difficulty identifying the serial port device name(s), please refer to the manufacturer’s documentation or contact your support provider.
Adding a New Modem
To add a modem, use the following command, where /dev/ttyACM1 is the new modem’s serial port, modem2 is the name we’d like to give the VSI-FAX modem, and fax1 is the name of the VSI-FAX modem pool and Eclipse fax device:
vfxadmin device -a -d -v /dev/ttyACM1 modem2
vfxadmin class -d -a modem2 fax1
To verify that the change is in place:
Modifying an Existing Modem
To change a modem’s port on either Linux or AIX, use the following command (where /dev/ttyD00 is the existing modem’s new serial port, and modem1 is the name of the VSI-FAX modem you’re updating):
