Q28746 - HOWTO: Setting Up COS on a New Windows Workstation

To set up COS on a new workstation, you must install TeraTerm. Because the instructions for installing TeraTerm involve advanced IT techniques, we recommend that you ask an IT technician to help you complete the instructions.

  1. Download TeraTerm and save it into a temporary folder on your local hard drive (for example, C:\TERATERM.ZIP).
  2. Navigate to the temporary folder on your local hard drive where you saved TeraTerm in step 1.
  3. Right-click on TERATERM.ZIP and select Extract All or Uncompress.
    - If you selected Extract All, click Next, click Next again to extract the files into the temporary folder on your local hard drive, and click Finish.
    - If you selected Uncompress, you may have to double-click on the file to uncompress the files into a sub folder called TERATERM.
  4. View the extracted or uncompressed files in the TERATERM folder.
  5. Double-click Setup.bat.

  6. Click Unzip.
  7. Click OK after the files are unzipped.
  8. Click Close to close the WinZip Self-Extractor window.

  12. Click Apply.
  13. Click OK.
  14. Double-click the USRVR icon to open a terminal window and log in.
  15. Repeat steps 1-14 on all workstations. To save the time of downloading TeraTerm on each workstation, you can download and save it on a shared drive or copy it to a thumb drive.
