Install on UNIX
Use this procedure below to install Reflection X Advantage on UNIX or Linux systems.
X Manager is installed by default. This application provides complete support for connecting to X clients in standalone mode. If you are planning on running Reflection X Advantage in domain mode, you will need to install additional features on the computers running in your domain. These features are not installed by default. For a summary of some typical installation configurations for domain mode, see Which Reflection X Advantage Features Should I Install? For more detailed information, see Setting up Domain Components.
Note: UNIX installers do not include the emulators and FTP Client, which are only available when you install on Windows.
To install Reflection X Advantage on UNIX systems
- Download the installation package for your UNIX operating system from the download site.
Note: The download files (*.zip) for each supported UNIX system include both 32-bit and 64-bit installers if both platforms are available.
- Unzip the download file; for example:
unzip -d rx-advantage-18.104.22.1689-prod-linux.zip
The expanded download file contains binary files (*.bin) for installing on different platforms. Locate the appropriate file for your UNIX platform. The product installation package name begins with "rxa-5.n.n.nnn."
The package name that begins with "rxa_help-5.n.n.nnn installs local help files. Installing these files is optional. By default, Reflection X Advantage uses product Help located on the Attachmate website. For more information, see Optional Local Help File Installation.
- If you unzipped on a Windows computer, copy the installation file for your platform to your UNIX computer.
- Log on as root and navigate to the directory that contains the installation file.
- Change the permissions of the installation package to give execute permissions to the file owner. For example:
chmod 744 rxa-22.214.171.1249-prod-x86_84-linux.bin
- Start the installation program. For example:
Note: The command above launches the InstallAnywhere installation program which requires an X11 Windows display. To initiate a command line installation, you can add the parameters -i console. For example:
./rxa-5.0.999-prod-x86_84-linux.bin -i console
- You can modify the feature selections during the install. X Manager is installed by default.
Note: If you are using the -i console option, you'll have an opportunity to specify which features you want to install by entering a comma-separated list in response to the prompt: "Please choose the Features to be installed by this installer:" To install all features, you can type 1,1.
