Hypersocket Client Installation on Windows

Introduction

The Hypersocket client is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems. This article will show you how to install the Windows version of the client.

 

Prerequisites

All users who will be using Hypersocket can have the Hypersocket Client installed and this feature should be installed on the server (from Updates, Features & Licensing->Features->Client).

 

The Hypersocket Client is required to be able to use VPN features and it is optional for SSO or MFT features. Installing the client requires administrator rights, but once installed any standard user account will be able to launch and use the client.

 

Step 1 – Download the client

To get the client the user should first log on to the Hypersocket web interface, then click on the Downloads button in the top navbar. In the Downloads page that appears, click on the link for the correct client operating system (32 or 64-bit). We will demonstrate the Windows client here.

 

Step 2 – Installing the client

When the client has downloaded, double click it to launch the installer. Click Yes on any UAC prompt that appears.

On the welcome page, click Next to continue.

 

On the license agreement page, click I accept the agreement and then click Next.

 

Either accept the default destination directory or click Browse to choose your own directory, then click Next.

 

Click Next.

 

Enter the URL for the Hypersocket web interface. This is the same address as used in the setup wizard section, for example https://gateway.corp.local.

Click Next to continue.

 

The install then proceeds and the files are copied to the system.

When completed, click Finish.

 

Step 3 - Connecting to a Hypersocket server

Now start the Hypersocket Client, at the top of your screen you should see the dock load, but then reduce down to its minimised form

If you move your mouse over the minimised form it will expand the dock again.

 

To connect to your server click on the  icon and select the URL you entered during installation from the dropdown. Entering your credentials when prompted.
