This section describes how to install NetScope from a CD ISO image.

Step 1. Download and burn the NetScope ISO image.

  1. First you must download the NetScope ISO image from the link provided by your Turbosoft Networks support representative.
  2. Burn the NetScope ISO image to a blank CD-ROM.
  3. Insert CD-ROM into target computer hardware and power on.
  4. Select the boot option for the CD-ROM.

NOTE: Individual hardware varies so here you must refer to your computer hardware manual for more information on booting from a CD-ROM.

Once you successfully boot from the NetScope CD you will be presented with the NetScope installation boot screen.

  1. Choose ‘Install’ and press ‘Enter’ to continue.
