Use this guide to assist in a fresh install of the MDaemon Plugin, or an upgrade to V3.0.
- Download the SNF_CS_Installer.exe from the Downloads page.
- Execute the Installer, and follow the SNF Install Tutorial for the MDaemon Install option.
- Either have the Installer restart MDaemon, or restart MDaemon at your convienence.
The Technical Summary lists the files that will be placed in the folder you designate for installation as well as the additional files the Installer will be required to touch. The Installer will restart the MDaemon service if you let it.
This version of the Installer uses Curl as the transport mechanism for the rulebase update feature. If you are updating to v3.0, you should either discontinue your current mechanism, or set the rulebase update feature to off. (We strongly recommend migrating to the Curl platform since it explicitly handles the server-file, local-file time stamp conflict.)
If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Sniffer, the SNF_CS_Installer.exe will duplicate copies of any original files which have the same name as a file in the new version, and store them in a folder called SNFRollback (specifically, the MDaemon Plugins.dat file reference and any original .dll files, etc.). If you need to rollback your upgrade for any reason, you may execute the Installer again, browse to your install location, and select Uninstall. The SNF_CS_Installer will work through the rollback file, remove any files belonging only to the new version and return the original files to their proper locations.
Requires Basic Sniffer Install:
