Setting up traffic control driver

Home Topic  Previous Topic  Next Topic  Print this Topic

Program allows to account network traffic used by clients. This chapter describes traffic control driver setup. You should install it on each client computer.

 

Warning, at the moment only 32 bit Windows OS are supported.

 

Warning, in Windows Vista, you should disable IPv6 protocol that conflicts with traffic control driver: disable corresponding network connection, remote IPv6 checkmark, enable network connection.

 

You can find traffic control driver in the directory where you have installed client program, in the TRAFCTRL sub-folder. By default it is: C:\Program Files\Internet Cafe\CLIENT\TRAFCTRL. Remember this folder location, you will use it soon.

 

We will describe driver setup steps for Windows XP. Other operation system steps should be similar.

 

Double click "Start->Settings->Network Connections":

 

tc-setup-netw-conn

 

Find your local network connection. Right click and open its properties:

 

tc-setup-conn-prop

 

Press "Install", choose"Service":

 

tc-setup-conn-prop-install

 

Press "Add":

 

tc-setup-conn-prop-install-service

 

Press "Have Disk...":

 

tc-setup-conn-prop-install-service-have

 

Press "Browse..." and choose the directory containing traffic control driver (files are: astrumfw.sys, netsf.inf, netsf_m.inf - see above):

 

tc-setup-conn-prop-install-service-have-browse

 

Press "Open":

 

tc-setup-conn-prop-install-service-have-browse-open

 

Press "ОК":

 

tc-setup-conn-prop-install-service---ok

 

Press "ОК":

 

tc-setup-conn-prop-install-service---ok-warn

 

Press "Continue Anyway", then "Continue Anyway" for each window that will appear until you get final step screen:

 

tc-setup-conn-prop-install-done

 

You've successfully installed network traffic control driver. Proceed to the chapter describing traffic control operations.

 

In case your system is incompatible with our driver, you can remove it by rebooting operation system in SAFE MODE (helps when OS is unable to boot normally).
