Technical
Question
You need a computer with a Windows™ operating system and an Internet connection. Your computer must have Microsoft Windows™ 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, XP, 2003 or Vista. For optimal performance the minimum system requirements are Pentium 500 MHz CPU and 128MB RAM. Apart from this there are no further systems requirements.
Question
No. Beam2Support is never installed. Your participants only download the connection program from the Beam2Support website and execute it in a temporary folder. There is no need to install the Beam2Support software.
Question
Yes. When you start or join a session, Beam2Support establishes one or several secure connections with a Beam2Support server. Beam2Support uses intelligent tunneling technology, using ports that are already open in your firewall and proxy server. Beam2Support works with your existing network configuration. The proxy server information is automatically detected or can be manually specified in the software settings. If you have a personal firewall installed on your PC, you might be asked to allow the Beam2Support software to connect to a Beam2Support server.
Question
Beam2Support uses port 443 (SSL) and port 80 (http). Since those ports are open by default in most cases, you do not need to change the settings of your network and/or firewall.
Question
With the integration of the session login into your corporate website, your session participant can log on to your Beam2Support session through your own corporate website. As a result your participant does not have to go through the Beam2Support website. If you wish to integrate the session login into your corporate website, you will receive a small piece of HTML code free of charge. Integrating the session login into your corporate website takes a matter of minutes.
Using Beam2Support
Question
If you forgot your password but you still know your username, you can retrieve your password by email. Please click here to retrieve your passwords. If you forgot both your password and your username, please send us an email to support@beam2support.com or give us a call.
Question
The organizer password is the password you need to start Beam2Support sessions. You have to enter the organizer password in the Beam2Support software under "Settings". The administrator password is the password you need to log in to MyAccount. When you register for a free trial or purchase a license, both passwords are the same. You can change both passwords in MyAccount. If you purchase a Shared User License, we recommend setting different passwords for the organizer password and for the administrator password. Only the Beam2Support account holder should know the administrator password. The organizer password has to be available to every user who is allowed to start Beam2Support sessions.
Question
Log on to MyAccount with your username and your administrator password. Click "Passwords" in the menu and change the organizer password and/or the administrator password respectively. Do not forget to save your changes before you exit MyAccount.
Question
The recorded sessions are saved by default where the Beam2Support host program is located.
Question
Please enter your username and organizer password again in the Beam2Support software under "Settings". Both username and password are case sensitive. If you copy the username or password make sure you don’t copy any blanks. Please make sure that you enter the organizer password for starting a session and not the administrator password. If you still encounter difficulties starting a session please send us an email at support@beam2support.com.
Question
If you have not received the email with the confirmation link, please check your spam filter and add team@beam2support.com to your address book.
