Install FTP Client Settings

This procedure uses the Modify user settings option in the Attachmate Customization Tool to install custom FTP Client settings.

Before you begin

  1. Create an administrative installation image.

  2. Install Reflection, including FTP Client, on your administrative workstation.

  3. Start FTP Client, configure the sites and settings you want to include in the installation, and save your settings.

To create a companion installer package

  1. From your administrative installation point, open the Attachmate Customization Tool from a shortcut or by typing the following command line:

    <path_to_setup> \setup.exe /admin

  2. From the Select Customization dialog box, select Create a new Companion installer (or open an existing MSI), and then click OK.

  3. From the navigation pane, click Specify package information. Use this panel to specify the program name your package will use in the Windows Programs and Features or Add or Remove Programs list. Also specify your organization name.

  4. From the navigation pane, click Specify install locations. Under Installation type, select Installs only for the user who installs it.

    NOTE:If you are installing for all users, Modify user settings is not available for the FTP Client.

  5. From the navigation pane, click Modify User Settings.

  6. Select Reflection FTP Client in the list of Reflection products, then click Define.

  7. Select the FTP Client settings you want to include in your deployment and click OK.

    Your modified settings are included in the companion installer package you are creating.

    NOTE:When User settings is deselected (the default), user-specific information, such as user names and passwords, is omitted from the exported file.

  8. Under Location, Attachmate Customization Tool automatically enters the correct location for deploying this file. Settings in the deployed settings file are migrated to a settings.rfw file for each user the first time the user runs the FTP Client.

  9. Click File > Save As and enter a name for your installer file (for example FTPClientSettings.msi). This file should be deployed with the installer.

  10. (Optional) Chain this installer to have it run automatically with the Setup program.
