Install CCBoot Server
Download the latest version of CCBoot Setup Package from website.
Installation process takes about a minute.
Note: CCBoot trial works for 30 Days for 5 users. There are no other limitation in functions.
If you try to boot more than 5PCs in trial then clients will not be stable and may crash. 5 PC trial is most stable, any more you want to boot, please purchase license.
Like in older version when email and password was used for trial, the new version doesn't have that thus to reset trial please re install server OS once and install CCBoot again. Make sure you backup your settings so you can restore it quickly.

CCBoot Server Ports
CCBoot uses the following ports - 67 (DHCP), 69 (TFTP), 3260 (iSCSI), 1000 (Image Upload),8001 (Service Control). Please open these ports on the server firewall to make sure client PC can diskless boot successfully. For CCBoot v3.0, you also need to open port 66. v3.0 using port 66 as DHCP backup. And after v3.0 20130871,CCBoot use port 4011 instead of port 66 as DHCP backup.
Note: In order to make sure that client's PCs can diskless boot well, please shut down the other DHCP services on the LAN, especially the DHCP service in the router.You can be rest assured that after you disabled other DHCP services on the LAN,it will not affect other computers' connecting to the Internet, because CCBoot will provide DHCP service which could also be used by the computers which boot from HDD.
