RE: [ISSForum] SP and XPU download strategy






Hi,
     as part of the latest SiteProtector SP3 there is an add on which is
called a manual updater or it can be downloaded seperately from the ISS
website. To quote from their website:

'This utility is used to manually download SiteProtector Service Releases
and sensor XPU's after SiteProtector installation. Use this utility if you
do not allow the SiteProtector Application Server to access the ISS website
for updates.This utility is used to manually download SiteProtector Service
Releases and sensor XPU's after SiteProtector installation. Use this utility
if you do not allow the SiteProtector Application Server to access the ISS
website for updates.'

We use a PC allowed access to the internet to download the files and then
transfer them with the relevant xml file onto the Application server.

Hope this helps
