Provide GUIs through a share

8.0 EN provide gui through share 01


In order to give users access to the 8MAN GUIs you must share the following folder with read permissions:


%ProgramFiles%\protected networks\8MAN




It is not sufficient to share only the sub-folder "bin".

8MAN bereitstellen shortcut erstellen


You can create shortcuts for users to the 8MAN GUIs in the bin folder app8man.exe and  appConfig.exe.


This " deployment via sharing " procedure minimizes the amount of maintenance required for updates compared to installation on the client computer.

After clicking on a start shortcut, larger amounts of data are transferred over the network than with a local installation. With low bandwidth (WAN routes), this can result in a longer start time.
