1. Preparing for install
- Entuity uses a secure FTP server to distribute its network analytics software. The Entuity FTP server is located here: ftp.entuity.com. Access to the Entuity FTP site requires a valid username and password that can be obtained from Entuity Support:
- If you have purchased the software, please contact Entuity Support and they will be able to provide you the necessary details.
- If you are trialing ENA software, please contact your Sales Engineer and they will be able to help you.
- For added security, the FTP site requires connection via SFTP.
- Open the ftppub folder, and then open the Images folder. Download the ENA image (which contains ENA v17.0 and patch P01 together), which is a compressed file.
- You will need to decompress the downloaded image. Note, when decompressing the image on Windows, WinZip will offer to unzip the ISO file contained in the zip file - do not unpack the ISO file.
- Mount the decompressed image as a virtual drive on your system.
2. Installing ENA

- This opens a welcome message. The next page will ask you to agree to the ENA terms and conditions.
