Installing on RPM Based Systems (Red Hat/SuSE etc)
The following instructions assume an installation in the default /usr directory.  If you would like to install the server in a different location see these instructions

  • Install the server (as root) with the command
  • yum install FastX3-*.rpm

  • Then run the post install script (as root) with the command
  • /usr/lib/fastx/3/install.sh

Post Install Script

    • Do you already have a license server on your network? [y/N]
    • Type “Y” if a centralized license server is running
      Type “N” if registering on the installed host

    • Would you like to activate a license now? [Y/n]
    • Type “Y” if registering on installed host (Internet Required)
      Type “N” if not registering on installed host or internet not available

      • Host without internet, users can register:
          • Manually
          • If FastX web services are installed, login into the host through a web browser as admin and go to the admin tools. Under “Tools” then “Licenses“.
    • Install/update the FastX web service? [Y/n]
    • Type “Y” to install or update for FastX web service
      Type “N” to not install or update FastX web service

Upgrading FastX

Installing using RPM in an alternate location
The FastX server rpm supports installs in alternate locations. This is helpful when admins want to install the server in a shared directory, or a specific location for 3rd party applications. In the following example, the FastX server will be installed in /your/base/dir

    • Install the server (as root) with the command
    • rpm -i --prefix=/your/base/dir FastX3-*.rpm

    Installing on Ubuntu/Debian Based Systems

    • If it’s not installed already, install alien with the command
    • sudo apt-get install alien
    • Install the server with the command
    • sudo alien --install --scripts FastX3-*.rpm

    **Note: Multiple installs, use the following command. This will create a .deb file for multiple usage.

    sudo alien --scripts FastX3-*.rpm

    Uinstalling FastX

    • Debian (as root) command
    • dpkg -r fastx3
    • Ubuntu command
    • sudo dpkg -r fastx3
