You should just read our manual, as these things are all explained there. If you expect some big tutorial, well, there is none, as the installation is pretty easy. Basically, download the Mac client, extract it somewhere, edit the RpClientCmd.conf file to your needs (you usually want to configure the heartbeat address) and run the client (or install the daemon). The main configuration is done using the server, so in fact you could just extract the client, run it, add the new client manually in the server and you are done.

well, thank you very much!

i edited the RPCLIENTCMD.CONF and wrote the server adress:
# With these settings, the client will inform the server about its existance.
[Client.Heartbeat]
; The server address
BroadcastAddress = 192.168.1.188
; The server port (default = 2705)
BroadcastPort = 2705
; The heartbeat interval in minutes
BroadcastInterval = 10
but when i run rpclientcmd via doubleclick, i get the following error:
/Users/user/Downloads/rpclientcmd/rpclientcmd ; exit;
-bash: export: `2': not a valid identifier
xxxx-bbbbs-Mac-Pro:~ user$ /Users/apundt/Downloads/rpclientcmd/rpclientcmd ; exit;
logout

[Prozess beendet]
so, here i am... thanks for every help, we purchased our licences yesterday. :)

anyone who can help? do we have to start the client as root? (our user now has admin privileges).

thanks,
Toby ( & s.lampe)

funny thing:

on other mac computers, there are no problems, running the client. sorry for bothering, it seems to be a specific problem on this mac...

Maybe updating that Mac might help, or reinstalling the client...
