Numbers of terminals
From this configuration you can change the number of Client PCs you want to control with CyberPlanet. Within the Amount tab, delete the number of terminals and type a new one. At the end, close the window so that the change takes effect.
Premium Version Only: The maximum number of terminals depends on the license you have purchased. If you want to increase the number of terminals, you can buy an extension of your license. More information.
If you purchased an extension and cannot change the number of Client PCs, restart CyberPlanet.
Then wait for CyberPlanet to validate the license and repeat the steps.
NOTE: There will be no visual validation warning. Waiting 5 minutes will be more than enough.
The Lite Version allows up to 10 client terminals. If you have a Premium version, the number of terminals fits the license you purchased.
Now you can choose the language you want to use: English or Spanish for CyberPlanet and CyberClient.
You can also edit the program language by entering the Server PC → language menu.
There are two modes of operation within CyberPlanet: Full Mode and Peripheral Control Only.
