You may install POSConnect on your application server following these steps.

# Step 1: Extract Installation Packet

There are a total of 2 files that are delivered to the client for POSConnect Java Listener installation:

  1. POSConnect zip/tar file (Windows/UNIX)
  2. POSConnect license file (Delivered after initial setup has been completed)

Extract the POSConnect zip/tar file, provided by Zumasys, to the POSConnect Install Directory.

For Windows installations only, after the zip file has been extracted to the POSConnect Install Directory, navigate to the config directory and double click to run the following scripts:

  1. installPOSConnect
  2. installScheduler
  3. installSweeper

Running these scripts will install the POSConnect listeners, the scheduler, and the sweeper as separate Windows services that can be seen and controlled from the standard Windows Services control panel.

# Step 2: Encrypt Login Credentials

Next follow these steps to enter and encrypt the database login credentials.

  1. Navigate to the scripts directory
  2. PCT.editProps

  5. Press RETURN to Continue...
  6. Press RETURN again to Exit

# Step 3: Validate License
