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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
