ASP Users: Additional Information
- There are two broadband lines that you can use to remotely access Plum. We name these lines Live 1 and Live 2. Our main line is Live 1 and the Microsoft remote desktop connection (RDC) address is live1.plumsoftware.net
Live 2 should only be used if Live1 is unavailable. The Live2 address is live2.plumsoftware.net. You can edit the address by right clicking your Plum ASP icon and selecting edit. You will also need your server port number added to the end of the address prefixed by a colon (:)
- If you are unsure of the port number, please contact the Support desk.
- If Plum becomes unresponsive you can use a utility called KillFFPA.NET to close. This can be found by searching for KillFFPA.NET from within your Windows ASP session.
- You can close hidden or non-responsive Microsoft Office programs (e.g Word or Excel) in your ASP session by searching for and opening KillOffice. You may find this utility useful when Word cannot update your Normal.dot template when you try to close. We recommend you save any open documents in your session before running this program.
