The Main Window
Each tab along the top of the Main window represents a category of parame-
ters that you set to configure systems on your network. When you select a
tab, the parameters for the subject of the tab are listed.
For the Server/Security, Subnets, Nodes, and Groups tabs, the window is
separated into three parts. On the left is the subject to be configured,
in the middle are the parameter choices for the subject, and on the right
is the field into which you enter a value for a parameter. When you select
a parameter in the middle of the window, you enter a value for it into a
field on the right side of the window.
For the Active IP Snapshot and Preload MAC addresses, the window is divided
into two parts. On the left are those addresses that have been configured.
On the right are the corresponding parameters for the configured addresses.
Entering Information into Fields
You can enter the following information in a field:
+ Descriptive text, like an IP address
+ Time in hours, minutes, and seconds
+ A true or false selection
Where there is more than one value field, press Tab to move to the next
To delete information in a field, select the text and press the Delete key.
As you add or revise information in a field, the information is automati-
cally saved in memory. However, to update the database with the changes
you have made, click on the Update button.
For some subjects, you can add more than one record, such as when you are
adding certain client configurations. When you want to add a new record,
select New Record on the left side of the window. If there is only one
possible record for a subject, New Record does not appear.
To print the contents of a record, select Print.
You must have superuser privileges to use xjoin.
