Antiviruses - Are there any antivirus issues related to Cyberleader?

Available Programs - How do I set up the list of programs available to run on the workstation?

In the Control Panel of CL Server, click on 'Available programs'. There you can specify programs' names and paths to their exe files. As soon as you make any changes, the list of programs will be transmitted to all client machines within 10 minutes. It is very convenient because you do not have to configure each Client separately.

Change CL Server User - How can I change the staff member logged on to CL Server?

To change the user that is currently logged on, click on the current user at the top of the CL Server's main screen (e.g. "-> Administrator"). This will bring up the login screen.

Credit Card Payments - Which credit cards do you accept?

Since we use Share-it! to process online orders for us, we accept all major credit cards as well as bank/wire transfers, checks and cash. We also accept all major currencies.

Currency Settings - How do I change the currency sign?

By default Cyberleader uses the currency sign that is set in the Windows Regional Settings (Windows Control Panel -> Regional Settings) on the computer where CL Server is installed. If you want to change it, on the Control Panel of CL Server click on 'Pricing policy' and there on 'Other settings.' Click on the tab 'Currency and Rounding' and change the currency. As soon as you do it, CL Clients will automatically receive the new currency sign setting.

Dynamic IP Address on the Server

Can I Use a Dynamic IP Address?

Yes, you can. If your network uses a Dynamic IP, then all you need to do is the following:
During the installation of CL Clients, enter the Network Name of the computer with CL Server instead of its IP.

Firewall - How can I make my firewall compatible with Cyberleader?

If you are running any type of firewall software, you need to allow Cyberleader to communicate through the firewall. In case your firewall requires creating port based filters, CL Server uses 12997, 12998, and 12999 TCP/IP ports. CL Clients use TCP/IP ports automatically assigned by Windows.

Parental Control - Does your software have this feature?

No, but you can use an independent parental control software like Net Nanny. After you install that software, go to CL Control Panel -> Available Programs and add it to the 'Automatic Startup' category.

Please note: we have no affiliation with BioNet Systems, the developer of Net Nanny.

Power Button - Power button related issues.

We recommended disabling the power button to make sure that customers do not press it causing the computer to shut down, stand by or hibernate.

To configure the power button options, go to the Windows Control Panel, click on 'Power Options' and select the 'Advanced' tab. You can do it only in Windows 2000/XP.

Pricing Modes - Postpaid and Prepaid.

1) Postpaid mode - there are two ways of starting a session in this mode:

a) the administrator simply locates an available computer in the main Server's table, selects it and clicks on the 'Postpaid session' button. The session either starts immediately or after a certain period of time depending on the settings in 'Specify how to begin and end sessions' screen that can be accessed from the CL Control Panel.

b) a customer clicks on 'Start a session' button and begins using the computer. If you would like to hide this button, uncheck the option 'Show start session button' under 'Appearance of CL Client' in the CL Server's control panel.

2) Prepaid mode has three components:

a) Prepaid sessions - administrator starts a prepaid session for a desired period of time. This is an extremely easy operation.

b) Timecodes - they are generated in CL Server and sold. Customers can then enter timecodes on computers and start using them. Once the time is used up, CL Client ends the session and displays the Protection mask. If a user ends a session and still has remaining time on the timecode, he or she will be able to use it during the next visit.

c) Prepaid Accounts - they are generated in CL Server and sold just like timecodes. The difference is that prepaid accounts have money on them instead of time. It has the following benefits:

  You can have different rates for different periods of the day/week.
  You can increase/decrease prices after an account is sold.

A prepaid account has a Login & Password. A timecode has only a Login.

In the 'Pricing policy' screen, you can specify rates for everything except timecodes, which have their own pricing window.

Registration Code - How long does it take?

As soon as you order the software online, we will send you the license key within 2 hours.

Back to top

Sales Tax - How can I set up a sales tax?

CyberLeader can automatically add a sales tax to the subtotal of each sale you make. In order to turn on this feature, go to Pricing policy -> Other settings and click on the 'Tax settings' tab. The sales tax will be automatically added to the subtotal of each receipt.

Back to top

System Security Settings - Where do I configure the security settings?

In the Control Panel of CL Server on the tab 'Internet Explorer and MSN Messenger settings', you can configure the settings of IE and MSN for client workstations. The rest of the security options are located on the tab 'CL Client settings'.
Note: Security settings in Cyberleader apply only to client workstations and do not affect the computer where CL Server is installed.

If you would like to prevent your customers from installing new programs, change the type of the Windows user account where CL Client is installed to 'Limited account'. By default this user account has admin rights. You can make this change in Windows Control Panel by clicking on User Accounts.

If you decide to uninstall the software, all settings will be changed back to their original state.

Back to top

Time Change - Can I change system time or date while CL is running?

You can do this ONLY when there are no current sessions, and nobody is using a timecode or a prepaid account.

Back to top

Upgrade a License - What are the rates?

If you would like to add workstations to your license, the charge will be equal to the number of additional clients multiplied by $15. For example, an upgrade from 5 to 10 Clients costs 5 X $15 = $75.

Please contact us for instructions on how to upgrade your license at sales@cyberleader.net.
