[AG-TECH] What's happened to the Toolkit 'all in one' installer?

G'day All

The all-in-one-installer can be found under the Projects section of the AG website.  See http://www.accessgrid.org/projects, or http://www.accessgrid.org/project/easy_setup for direct access.

The reason why it is listed under "projects" and not under the software page, is because it is a project, in which it includes additional AG software that might be useful, such as:

    * AGVCR
    * Shared Desktop
    * VenueVNC
    * VPCScreen (send video from your monitor)
    * TigerBoard (shared whiteboard)
    * H.264 Video Services
    * Extended Video Services (for people with firewire cameras and way too much bandwidth)

In my opinion, I highly recommend using this version of the installer, as is it extremely easy to install and there is no need to download and install multiple packages to get it all working.

I hope this clarifies your question.  If you have any further enquiries, please don't hesitate to contact me.

If you're logged into the website, try logging out and then see if you  
can access it.

I've noticed (while at the retreat and in the workshop) that we  
couldn't 'find it' until logging out of the site. I'm copying Tom on  
this so he will have a chance soon to take a look.

Yes, the Retreat wrapped up on Friday. It was a good retreat, a good  
many folks were there! I did miss a few from past retreats but did  
meet plenty of new folks as well.
