Installing the Qedit for Windows Client and Servers
Qedit for Windows is a client-server application. There are two,
or possibly three, components to install:
- The client software is installed onto a computer running Microsoft Windows
- The MPE server software is installed onto a host computer running MPE/iX
- The HP-UX server software is installed onto a host computer running HP-UX
Your can download each component of the demo from this page.
The server installation process uses ftp to transfer the files
from your PC to the host system(s). Make sure ftp access is
enabled on the host(s).

Qedit for Windows MPE Server Install
The following steps are only done if you want to edit files on your HP 3000 server.
Download the MPE Server
- Download Qedit for HP e3000 (Host and/or Server)
- Install Qedit for HP e3000 (Host and/or Server)
Completing the MPE Server Installation
Once the MPE server files have been copied from the PC to the
MPE host, and authorization codes applied you should be able to connect to your HP3000
using the RPM facility. If you have users connecting thru a firewall you will want to
run the Qedit Server process as a job on the HP 3000.
All you need to do is:
Qedit for Windows HP-UX Server Install
The following steps are only done if you want to edit files on your HP 9000 HP-UX server.
Download the Hp-UX Server
- Qedit for HP-UX (Host and/or Server)
- Qedit for HP-UX Installation
Completing the HP-UX Server Installation
Once the HP-UX server files have been copied from the PC to the
HP-UX host, you need to complete a few steps on the host.
- Using a terminal or emulator (e.g. Reflection), sign on to the HP-UX host as root
- Setup the robelle environment variable that the server daemon needs:
- Start the Qedit for Windows server daemon:
/opt/robelle/bin/qedit -d -t
The server process will stay running until it is killed
explicitly or until the system is shut down. You will have to do
steps 1-3 every time you want to start the server, or
you can contact Robelle for the instructions on starting the
daemon as part of the system startup process.
