Installation on Other OS

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

For Linux you can download the installation files for Linux or use the package for all OS.  JIPXt was tested on Ubuntu, SuSe and Mandriva. We assume since this worked perfectly, there should  be no problem running on other distros.

tog_plusInstallation

1.You can also use the zip file for all OS. 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.You can either double click on the file JIPXt.jar to start JIP (if your OS supports double clicking).

OR

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

OR

3.From a terminal start JIPXt with java -jar JIPXt.jar

 

tog_plusIMPORTANT

You should use the file. JIPXt_task to run as a service or automatic (see below).

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

You can install JIPXt to run automatic using the cron tab.

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
