Client Installation

Client Pre-Requisites

  1. Ensure server is installed: Binfer Enterprise Sync must be installed on the

server before being installed on each client.

  1. Create Client PC Files on the server: For each client installing Binfer Enterprise Sync, a unique “PC File” must first be created on the server. This can be done in the “PRIVATE CLOUD” module of Binfer. For additional instructions on how to

create a PC File, reference the “Binfer Enterprise Sync Admin Guide”.

  1. Verify “Test URL”: In the “SETTINGS” tab of the “PRIVATE CLOUD” module, copy the “Test URL” and paste it into your internet browser on the client computer.

NOTE: You are good to proceed with client installation if you see text in the browser that says “Binfer is On” along with a time stamp. If you do not see this, your port is not be open on the firewall.

Your network administrator should be able to help resolve this. Contact Binfer Support if this issue persists.

Note: Make sure that Server has a static external IP or mapped to a domain name (If mapped to domain name enter the domain name in Domain field click SAVE and then click EXPORT PC DATA). If your TEST URL has internal IP then paste your external IP or domain name in domain field and click save and then click export pc data.
