You can remotely install Server in two modes:
- Using Windows security. In this case, you need Win2000/XP/2003/2008/Vista/7 to be installed both on the computer where Viewer is running and on the server. You must also know the administrator password and, attention, the password must not be empty! Another requirement: you should disable «Simple File Sharing» in Windows XP. You can do it like this: Control Panel -> Folder Properties -> View. Clear the «Simple File Sharing» checkbox.
- Using the LiteManager security system. To do it, you need LiteManager not earlier than 3.2 to be already running on the server and access to this server to be allowed by the Remote Office Manager built-in security policy. This installation method is convenient for upgrading already installed LiteManager. It works in all operating systems that support LiteManager.
