Copy this script to a text editor. This script can change the names of all  boosters, from booster1 through booster5. Add and remove lines according to requirements.  Edit each entry per Booster, replacing:

  • 'no.booster.set' with the name of the Booster
  • Booster port to the required port; set as 20013 if Booster uses default settings
  • Booster Monitor Port to the required port; set as 20003 if Booster uses default settings

Leave as 'no'booster.set' where there is no Booster required.


Always consider using Fully Qualified Domain Names for the Booster name


Save the script with the .bat extension.  Ensure the script is configured for 'Execute once when activated' from the 'Get Info' > 'Executables' tab.

Example

Modify Booster 1 as:

  • 'booster1.filewave.com'
  • 20013
  • 20003


REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\FileWave\WinClient /v booster1 /t REG_SZ /d booster1.filewave.com /f
REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\FileWave\WinClient /v booster1port /t REG_DWORD /d 20013 /f
REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\FileWave\WinClient /v booster1PublishPort /t REG_DWORD /d 20003 /f
