1.8. Step 4: Create Palisade_NetworkClient.ini File (6.x)

If you have a 7.x network, see Step 4: Create Palisade_NetworkClient.ini File (7.x).

After completing Server Step 3 for the first time, or after changing server name or port number, click Create Client.ini to create the Palisade_NetworkClient.ini file that is needed for client install. (For 5.x licenses, the file is named Client.ini.) Server Step 5 tells you how to use this file.

You may or may not need to create a new .ini file after subsequent license installs with Server Step 3. Here are the rules:

After you install your first Concurrent Network license or any new Enterprise Network license on this server, Server Manager will remind you to create the .ini file for the new license. But you can create the .ini file at any time: click the appropriate license in the list, and then click Create Client.ini.

In some unusual setups, clients will need a fully qualified domain name, or an IP address, to find the server. If your network is set up in this way, simply edit the Palisade_NetworkClient.ini file after creating it and before doing the client installs. See Can clients reach our server by FQDN or IP address?
