How to view a summary of number of Host (Workstations) on an I/NET network including their Host ID.
I/NET Seven 2.13 and above
An alternate user interface that you can use to setup your network configuration, and to configure your access control system, rather than using standard menu commands.
This version of I/NET provides an alternate user interface that you can use to setup your network configuration, and to configure your access control system. Rather than using standard menu commands, you can instead use a tree-based interface by selecting View System View from the main I/NET menu.
The System View Window
When you launch System View, it is displayed as a double-pane window. This window is non-modal; meaning that you can open other windows and editors while the System View window is open.
The Left-side Pane
The left-side pane contains a hierarchical tree that represents the structure of your system. Along the bottom of the left-side pane is an Access tab and a Netcon tab. By default, the Access tab is active, causing the main area of the left-side pane to display a list of the tenants defined in your access control system. This list contains an “All Tenants” entry as well as an entry for each tenant that you have already defined (if any).
If you select the Netcon tab, the access control information in the left-side pane is replaced with network configuration information.
The Right-side Pane
The right-side pane provides a Context tab and a System tab. By default, the Context tab is active, allowing the pane to display information about items you highlight in the left-side pane.
You can use the System tab to duplicate the functionality of the left-side pane in the right-side pane. This is especially useful when you wish to drag items from one pane and drop them into the other pane (refer to “Using Drag and Drop” below).
Expanding and Collapsing Items
You can expand an item by clicking its plus (+) symbol. This causes subordinate items to display, indented beneath the expanded item. Subordinate items may also have a plus symbol, indicating that they too can be expanded. After expanding an item, the plus sign changes to a minus (–) sign. Click the minus sign to collapse the expanded item.
Using Drag and Drop
One benefit to using the System View interface is that you can drag and drop items from the right-hand pane to items in the left-hand pane. For example, you could drag a Group from the right pane to an individual in the left in order to assign that group to the individual.
Displaying a Context-sensitive Popup Menu
By clicking with the right mouse button, you can display a popup menu of available functions. This popup menu is context sensitive, meaning that it can display functions that are only applicable to a selected item, as well as functions that are common among all items. When you right-click a blank area, the popup menu shows functions that are applicable to the System View window.
Print and Print Preview
At any time you can print the entire contents of the left-side pane by right clicking anywhere in the pane and selecting Print from the resulting context menu. Only the items that are currently displayed in the pane will be included in the printed output. Therefore, no subordinate information for collapsed items will be included in the printed output.
You can display a preview of the printed output by right clicking anywhere in the pane and selecting Print Preview from the resulting context menu. Using the preview window, you can switch between a one-page and two-page display, navigate from one page to another, zoom in and out, and send the output to a printer.
When you use System View to configure your network, each device displayed in the hierarchical tree can include a status indicator. This indicator shows the device's status as of the latest refresh. The following table describes the status indicators and their meanings.
