Cyberleader requires a TCP/IP connection via LAN or Internet between the server and client machines.

Follow these steps to quickly install Cyberleader:


1. Choose a machine to act as a server (usually the front desk computer), and download then install the Cyberleader Server software on that computer.

2. Start the CL Server.

3. On all other machines, download and install the CL Client software.
At the beginning of the installation, you will need to enter the username of the Windows account to be created during installation. CL Client will run only on that account.

At the end of the installation process, the setup requires entering the following info:


a. Server's IP Address or its Network Name. The word "Server's" implies the computer on which CL Server is installed and running. The server's IP address is located in the lower left-hand corner of the CL Server's control panel.
If you would like to run CL Server and Client on the same machine, enter '127.0.0.1' as the server's IP. In this case, CL Server and Client must be running under different Windows accounts (only works in Windows NT/2000/XP).

Tip: You can quickly switch between Windows accounts by pressing Windows key + L on the keyboard.

b. Client Computer Number. This number determines the position of the current client computer in the column 'PC' of the CL Server's main table. The row of the table with this number will be used to control this CL Client from CL Server.

Note: When using the Demo version, you can enter only numbers 1, 2 or 3 since only 3 clients are supported.

c. PC Name. This name is displayed in the upper right-hand corner of CL Client. The Computer Number is used as the default PC name. You can change it at any time in the "PC groups" screen of CL Server.

After entering all this info, click 'Connect' and finish the installation. Then log off Windows and log on to the Windows account where you chose CL Client to run. The first logon may be a little slow, but after that logging in will be faster than usual.

Note: To ensure security on client computers, always specify a password for the Windows user account that is intended for cafe's employees to do maintenance work.

Important: If you use Windows XP on the server computer, you need to disable the default XP firewall. To do that, in the Windows Control Panel, double click Network Connections. Right-click the interface you use to access the LAN (e.g. "Local Area Connection"), and then click Properties. Click Advanced tab and uncheck the firewall checkbox.

Overall, if you are running any type of firewall software, you need to allow Cyberleader to communicate through the firewall. CL Server uses TCP/IP ports 12997 through 12999. CL Clients use TCP/IP ports automatically assigned by Windows.

After installation, you can set up pricing and other settings in the CL Server's Control Panel.
