Installing Middleware

The following time clocks do NOT require Middleware be installed:

- Kronos InTouch

- ATS Prodigy, Maximus, Nema

Attached is the comprehensive Middleware Manual.  

* You will likely want your IT professional to perform the necessary installation.  

* The computer running Middleware should be a computer that is always running.  Functions will not work when this computer/software is not running.

* Contact to receive the proper credentials for linking Middleware to our system.

Installing Middleware

Please see the attached document for comprehensive instructions.  We'll list some frequently asked questions and tips here:

- Be sure you have an updated version of Java installed first.  When at a command prompt, type "java -version" and then enter and you can confirm a proper Java installation.

- Multiple installs/instances of Middleware must NEVER connect to the same device, especially when on the same network.  

- Confirm you are able to "ping" the time clock from the machine you are installing Middleware.

- You can connect to multiple time clock devices from a single Middleware instance.

- Running Middleware as a service will not work in Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows 8+.  It should instead be run as an application.

- The user installing software will require Administrator level access to your machine.

- Installs are possible on Macintosh, Linux and Unix based systems, but we recommend Microsoft operating systems.  Please e-mail for alternative instructions.

- Multiple Middleware instances may be installed as backups, but be sure to inactivate any terminals (devices/time clocks) on the backup Middleware instances.

- Be sure to enter a "description", and BeyondPay is better able to see which locations Middleware is installed.
