Installing the MWTM Client for Windows Using the Web Server
You can use the MWTM web server to access the client installation software to run the installation.
Note Disable the Windows firewall before installing the MWTM client on Windows.
To install the MWTM client on a Windows system from the MWTM web server:
Step 1 From your browser, go to the URL for the MWTM web server:
where your_MWTM_server is the name or IP address of the MWTM web server and 1774 is the web port being using by the MWTM (1774 is the default port number). If you do not know the name or web port of the MWTM web server, contact the system administrator who installed the MWTM server software.
The MWTM server home page appears.
If you are running a 6.1.4 server, you will have to download and use the 6.1.4 client.
Step 2 Click Download Windows Client.
The Download Instructions for MWTM Client on Windows page appears.
Step 3 Click Download the Windows Client to download the installation setup program for Windows XP Professional.
Step 4 When queried, specify the directory into which you want to download the installation software file.
Step 5 Go to the download directory and double-click the setup.exe command to install the software. The installation files automatically uncompress into a temporary directory, and the Cisco MWTM Client Setup window appears, with the text, "Welcome to the InstallShield Wizard for the Cisco MWTM Client."
Note It is recommended to temporarily disable any anti-virus and security software before installing the MWTM client on your computer.
Step 6 Follow the prompts to install the software.
Verifying MWTM Client Installation
To verify the MWTM client installation:
Step 1 Make sure the MWTM server is available.
Step 2 Make sure the MWTM client icon appears on the desktop.
Step 3 Make sure the following options are in the Start > Programs > Cisco MWTM Client menu:
•Modify Default MWTM Server Name
•MWTM DOS Prompt
•MWTM Event Editor
•MWTM SSL Certificate Tool
•Uninstall MWTM Client
Step 4 To start the MWTM client, use one of the following methods:
•Choose Start > Programs > Cisco MWTM Client > MWTM Client.
•Double-click the MWTM Client icon on the Windows desktop.
The MWTM must discover your network during operation. If the MWTM server installation is successful, and if you do not now configure the MWTM server to automatically discover your network the first time the server starts after installation, the Discovery dialog box and the MWTM main window appear upon client startup. For details about these windows and the discovery process, see the User Guide for the Cisco Mobile Wireless Transport Manager 6.1.4.
Uninstalling the MWTM Client
You can use the standard Add/Remove Programs icon in the Windows Control Panel to uninstall the MWTM, or you can uninstall the MWTM from the Windows Start menu.

Step 1 Exit all open MWTM windows.
Step 2 From the Windows Start menu, choose Start > Programs > Cisco MWTM Client > Uninstall MWTM Client.
Note You can also uninstall the MWTM from the Windows Control Panel by clicking Add/Remove Programs, selecting MWTM Client, and clicking Change/Remove, but using the Windows Start Menu is the recommended method.
Step 3 Click Yes (or Yes to All) in the Remove Existing File window to remove the System.properties file or click No (or No to All) to restore the old System.properties file.
