Yeah, that's what I did. I figured out my problem - I had used the wrong
IP address for the FTP server. Once I fixed that it worked like a charm.

Following is the procedure for setting up DHCP Tag 137 on W2K =
server:=3D20

1) Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, DHCP
2) Select your W2K server icon under the Tree tab
3) Select the Action menu item
4) Select Set Predefined Options...
5) Click the Add button
6) In the Name field enter a name(i.e. Neoware)
7) Data Type should be set to String
8) Code should be 137
9) In the Description field enter a description(i.e. ezUpdate)
10) Click OK
11) Under Value enter the String(i.e. FTP location(URL) of configuration
=3D and/or software update files)  Note:  This is a Global setting!  If
you =3D have multiple scopes defined you would not enter the String
here...you =3D would enter the String at the Scope level.

That's it.  As for troubleshooting, as long as you can browse =3D
anonymously to the FTP site, and open any of the three files =3D
(CONNECTIONS.RGY, PROPERTIES.RGY and a text file I cannot remember the =
=3D
name of), your client should get the update.

I've read the documentation about the ezUpdate process. The part that I
=3D don't understand is the DHCP tag. I have a Win2K DHCP server, but I =
=3D
don't have option 137 to assign in my scope. I've tried right-clicking =
=3D
the server, choosing 'Set Predefined Options', and adding a string =3D
option with 137 as the code. I then assigned my FTP server's ezRemote =
=3D
folder to the option. However, I don't get any update on my clients. Is
=3D this how you get DHCP tag 137? Also, when it doesn't work, how do =
you
=3D troubleshoot it?

Thanks,

JD

Chris,=3D3D3D20

the ezUpdate makes mass upgrades a breeze.  All you do is set a DHCP tag
=3D =3D3D3D pointing to a share and put the files you want upgraded in =
the
=3D3D =3D share. =3D3D3D When the units boot they check and load from =
the
share if =3D newer.  =3D3D You =3D3D3D should be able to set it up with =
your
config file =3D so that a new =3D3D unit, =3D3D3D when booted, will =
update
itself and load =3D the config file.  Then you can =3D3D3D drop ship =
units
straight to your =3D sites and they will be running right =3D3D3D out of =
the
box without any =3D fuss from you.

no, actually it seems to be pretty handy. esp. the shadowing part. that
=3D =3D3D3D has helped us out a great deal as many of our users are at
remote =3D locations. =3D3D3D we have not as of yet done a "mass =

the =3D3D =3D neoware O.S., but we =3D3D3D have done individual machines =

we have about 200 of them from the 3000 series to the new 4000 series =

pretty =3D3D good, although, dont =3D3D3D forget about the cost of =

=3D support for =3D3D software. i think you have 1 year from purchase, =
then
=3D you have to buy extended support. we have =3D3D3D blackberries =

we
=3D use them as dial ups for home users and some remote offices. seem to =
