tog_plusInstallation

First extract the zip file into and it will have a folder called JIPXt.  The folder can be run from anywhere you decide to place it.

tog_plusStarting JIPXt

Several ways to start JIPXt:

1.From a terminal change to the JIPXt directory and give the command "./Run_JIP.sh" and this will call JIPXt to start running.

OR

2. From the terminal give the commands java -jar JIPXt.jar

 

tog_plusRunning as a service or automatic when system starts

You can install JIPXt to run automatic when system starts.

www.bashiro.com . Then extract the zip file JIPXt_serve.zip.

 

1.Files; JIPXt_serve.jar, wrapper, testwrapper, demoapp, daemon.sh. Copy these files  into your JIPXt directory.

2.Folder "conf": copy the contents of the folder "conf"  into the folder conf under JIPXt.

3.

4.Folder "logs": copy the contents to the folder "logs" under JIPXt directory

 

Explaination:

 

Change into JIPXt directory.From a terminal give the command "./daemon.sh" to see the help arguments. Example "./daemon.sh start" and you should see  "JIPXt Scheduler Started! TASK STARTED*******"."

  Then use "./daemon.sh stop"  to stop the running application.Else something is wrong. Check the procedures above or contact support for help.

If the test is successful, then use "./daemon.sh install"  to install JIPXt to run automatic when systems starts. You have to be root to install the service.

 

IMPORTANT:

If you decide to install JIPXt as a service. First; Configure JIPXt to suit your profile then close it and start the JIPXt service. When you install JIPXt as a service close the JIPXt main frame. This is because  JIPXt_serve will now use the configuration files of JIPXt.

 

tog_plusRunning JIPXt using Cron or task when system starts

 

Download JIPXt_task from www.bashiro.com . Then extract the zip file JIPXt_task.zip.

The extracted file contains the the file JIPXt_task. Copy this file into the JIPXt directory.

 

Explaination:

After performing the above task.

The file JIPXt_task has no any scheduling function and hence will depend on the system task manager or crontab configuration.

When the task manager execute JIPXt_task, it will start, check for IP change and then stops. If there is any change in IP it will update your IP automatically. If there is no change in IP it go back to sleep quietly.

 

IMPORTANT:

If you decide to use JIPXt_task. First; Configure JIPXt to suit your profile then close it and let crontab do the rest.This is because  JIPXt_task will now use the configuration files of JIPXt.  This will depend on the time interval you state in task manager. Please use a minimum of every 15 minutes. This will minimize unnecessary band waste
