Go-Global Version 2 Installation instructions:

 

    Note: The first time you run Go-Global from your MS Windows, you must be

          logged in as system administrator or have the computer permissions

          of the system administrators group.

 

    Our checks were conducted on MS Windows 2000 and Win XP (sp1 and sp2)

    operating systems, with firewall security level set to "Medium".

 

    To install and use Go-Global, proceed as follows:

 

    A. In MS Internet Explorer.

 

    1.  Go to:   http://www.technion.ac.il/GG

         You may get the following Security Warning:

            "Do you want to install and run

             http://www.technion.ac.il/GG/plugin.cab?"

        Click the "Yes" button.

 

        The first time you do that, a dialog box will open. You will be

        asked:       "Do you want to install this software?"

        Click "Install".

 

        The "Connection" dialog box will open.

        Click "Cancel".

 

        Go-Global works with SSL (Secure Socket Layer), a

        security protocol that provides communication privacy over the

        Internet.

        For that, please change the default preferences as follows:

 

         i.   In the "Go-Global UX window" choose menu Option -> Preferences

         ii.  In the "Transport:" drop-down list -

                choose "Secure Socket" ->  Save

 

    2.  Please connect (again). In the connection dialog box type:

        techunix.technion.ac.il or stud.technion.ac.il as the case may be.

        (If you type only tx or stud instead of the full name, a

        Security Alert will pop up. If that happens,  click "Yes".)

 

    3.  An Authentication window will open. Provide your username and

        password.

 

    4.  The "GO-Global UX" desktop window will open.

        To launch an application, double click on the specific icon.

        If there is no ready-to-click icon, please double click either on the

        "Xterm" or on the "CDE" icon to open a session.

 


 

    B. In Netscape, Mozilla Firefox & Mozilla Firebird (Please make sure that

       the Java Applet is installed on your pc).

 

 

    1.  Go to:   http://www.technion.ac.il/GG

 

        A warning Security will appear:

        "Do you want to trust the signed Applet distributed

           by "Graph-on Corporation:"

        Click "Yes".

        An error msg " A version mismatch has occurred."

    Tip:  In MS Internet Explorer, you can "drag" any application icon

    (say "Xterm" or "Pine") from the  GO-Global panel to your Windows

    desktop and it will be kept there. Then on your next Windows session(s)

    you don't need to open the web browser and to go to the Go-Global site,

    you just click on your new GO-Global icon and Pine or Xterm to TX/STUD

    will appear on your Windows desktop.

 

    Please check your quota before you start working; some of the system files

    which will be created may need more memory than is available to you.

 

    For more information, see the HELP section while in Go-Global.

 

    (*) Note: Our current license of Go-Global 2 is limited to 46 concurrent

              users.

    If you get a message that Go-Global is not available, wait few minutes and

    retry later. Depending on load, we might consider expanding the number of

    keys available at a later time. User of the older version of Go-Global (1.5)

    can, for the time being, continue using it as before.
