Management in Network Enforcer
Adding a Computer to be Monitored
To add a computer to the management list click "Add
then "Add Computer Wizard". Adding a computer is a two
step process that the wizard will walk you through. First, you
will need to specify a computer. You can use the browse button
(...) to view network computers and select them - or you can manually
enter them if you know their IP or computer name. Second, specify
an administrator login for that computer. This login is only required
and necessary if you plan on using Network Enforcers Remote Client
Installation feature that installs the Network Enforcer client
on the computer, without you having to physically install it. Click "Finish" to
add the computer to the monitoring list.
On larger networks manually selecting a computer and adding it
can be a tedious process. To help this you can use the Enumerate
Network feature in the "Add
Computer" menu. This will list all computers on your network. Once computers
are listed in the enumeration results, you can click on a computer to select/deselect
it. Once you have the computers you would like to add selected click on
"Add". You will be walked through the "Add Computer
Wizard" for each computer.
Removing a Computer
To remove a computer select it and click on "Remove Computer".
You will be asked to confirm the action.
Configuring a Computer
To configure a computer's threshold, filtering, and login settings, as well as
export and import settings, and synchronize settings, click on "Configure Computer".
Please see the Computer Configuration section for detailed explanations on
configuring the Network Enforcer clients in detail.
Network Enforcer can install its client on any computer on your
network without you having to physically go there and install
it. To do this you only need to know the administrative login
for each computer. You can change the administrative login settings
from the "Configure Computer" menu after adding a computer, or
specify the login while adding the computer.
To do the remote install select a computer in your list and click
on "Install Client". Confirm your action and Network
Enforcer will take over from there - installation only takes a
few seconds if your login settings are correct. If the install
fails you will be told why. When the installation completes the
Network Enforcer client will be already running on the network
computer. Once the client is installed you will want to synchronize
its settings (you will be asked to do it after install completes).
If you have not created any settings for it you can do so now (again
by clicking on "Configure
Once configured you can sync settings by using the appropriate
commands in the "Configure Computer"
menu (again, Network Enforcer will prompt you to sync settings
after every settings change).
If you are unable to perform a remote network installation you
can physically install the client on each computer by running
the 'enforcerclientinstall.exe' file in your Network Enforcer
installation folder on each computer on your network that you
want to use Network Enforcer on. The installation is invisible
and will only take a few seconds.
Network Enforcer allows you to remotely control the clients installed
on each computer on your network. To issue commands to the client
click on "Client Commands". From here you can close the client
on the computer, uninstall it completely, and reset alert counts.
If you need to synchronize settings on the remote computer click
on the appropriate action in the "Configure Computer" menu.
