Part VIII: Advanced Topics > Installing 2000 in the Business Environment

Chapter 36. Installing 2000 in the Business Environment

This chapter discusses the methods to install and configure AutoCAD 2000 on Microsoft Windows 95, 98, and NT operating systems on a network. Although considered network administrator territory, knowledge of the methods used to setup a network installation of AutoCAD 2000 can be helpful when network systems change and need adjustment.

The primary need for a network installation of AutoCAD is greater utilization of software resources. Instead of purchasing individual AutoCAD licenses for each user, you can assign each user a percentage of your total AutoCAD needs. By sharing the application licensing, you can often save up to 50 percent of your software costs. In addition to controlling expenses, sharing AutoCAD on a network can greatly increase the ease of installation and the maintenance of the application. Therefore, even if you do not need to share the program license, using a network installation can greatly decrease your support needs.

This chapter discusses the following subjects:

  • Installing all network modules on a single server

  • Networking communication protocols

  • Using the Network Setup Wizard

  • Licensing and activation

  • Installing an AutoCAD image
