Installation

The following section provides instructions for installing both the Out’n About! for Outlook server and client applications. System requirements for both applications are provided in the previous section.

Server Installation

The Out’n About! for Outlook server is a self-hosted solution, installed on one of your own internal desktop or server Windows machines. To install the Out’n About! for Outlook Server, you must have administrator rights. To allow internal users to connect to the Out’n About! server, the Windows Firewall on the machine running the Out’n About! for Outlook server – port 23079 must be open to allow inbound TCP/IP connections. If you wish to allow users to connect remotely via the Internet you can optionally allow inbound TCP/IP connections on port 23079 from the Internet.

Download and run the Out’n About! for Outlook Server installation program from our website. Follow the installation wizard instructions.

If you are upgrading from a previous version, we strongly recommend that you backup the Out’n About! for Outlook database files located in the program install directory.

When prompted, enter the default administrator information. This information is extremely important as this will be the only user contained in the Out’n About! database upon finishing installation. This user will have the ability to add new users and departments as well as add new administrators to the system using the Out’n About! for Outlook Client.

Client Installation

Download and run the Out’n About! for Outlook Server installation program from our website. Follow the installation wizard instructions. The next time you start the Microsoft Outlook application, the Out’n About! for Outlook client will start automatically.

Group Policy/Active Directory Client Deployment

An optional MSI (Outlook x86 and Outlook x64 available) installer is available on our website if you wish to deploy the Out’n About! for Outlook Client using Group Policies or Active Directory deployment.

Silent Client Installation

Silent installations are installations that run without a user interface. To help facilitate installation across larger organizations, the Client setup program allows silent installations. This can be used along with windows scripting to allow remote installation by system administrators.

To run the Client setup program in silent mode use the ‘/s’ command line parameter: OutAboutClientSetup.exe /s.

Default Server Address

The default server address can be set at:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Intellicon/Out’n About! for Outlook Sub Key: “Default Server Address”

or

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Intellicon\Out’n About! for Outlook\[user_email]\  Key: “Server Address”
