Installing the PSM Client Manually


Use this procedure to install the PSM client on Windows (32-bit or 64-bit), Linux, or MAC OS X. A user must have administrator privileges to install the PSM client, but does not need administrator privileges to run the client.

  • See PSM Client Requirements.

  • On Linux, ensure the package libgnome2.0 is installed. This package is required even if you are not running a Gnome desktop.

  • On MAC OS X, ensure you can install applications from all sources. Go to System Preferences >Security & Privacy and select the General tab. Set Allow applications downloaded from: to Anywhere. You might have to unlock the Security & Privacy window to make the change.

  1. The PSM client is in a compressed file that is included on the PSM DVD. It can also be downloaded directly from the PSM server. In your web browser, go to https://<server>:9998/client, where <server> is the IP address of the workstation on which PSM server is installed. For example:

    Enter your username and password if prompted.

    There is one compressed file for all supported operating systems:, where xxx is the release number.

  2. Uncompress the file and extract the contents into an applications folder.

    For example:

    • On Windows: C:\Program Files\psmclient-xxx

    • On OS X: /Applications/psmclient-xxx

    • On Linux, install the psmclient where you install other applications.


    If you are installing the client on a Windows 32-bit operating system, see Configuring the PSM Server for a 32-bit Windows Client.

    To launch the client, see Launching the PSM Client.

This procedure is complete.
