Platforms That iMonitor Can Run On
The iMonitor 1.5 utility runs on the following platforms:
NetWare 5 Support Pack 4 or later (for SSL, NetWare 5.1 or later)
Novell iMonitor is placed in AUTOEXEC.NCF.
Windows NT/2000 (no SSL)
For Windows NT/2000, Linux, and Solaris, iMonitor loads automatically when eDirectory runs.
Novell iMonitor System Requirements
To use iMonitor 1.5, you need:
Any HTML 3 browser that supports Cascading Stylesheets, such as Netscape 4.06 or later, or Internet Explorer 4 or later
Novell eDirectory 8.5 or later
No More Conflicts for iMonitor and Your Web Server
With the default installation of eDirectory on Windows 2000, the iMonitor utility (eDirectory's Web-based monitoring and troubleshooting tool) uses port 80.
This could be a problem if you plan to use a Web server on the same machine. If your Web server starts up fast enough, iMonitor will change its port to 8008, but generally it's a smaller process than your Web server and thus starts up a lot faster.
To change the default port, be sure to go into your C:\Novell\NDS directory and edit the NDSIMON.INI file.The file is flagged as read-only, so you must change the attribute to read-write before you can edit it. Look for the section [HttpPort] and change the default port there.
