Fluent Install Instrucions

Fluent from Home

A recent addition to the software that the MAE Lab has running on its computers is Fluent. Some of you would like to run this software at times when you wouldn't want to be at EBE, or simply from your own computer. To allow for this we have setup the server to not only give out Licenses within the Lab but also out to the Local MU TigerNet. This means to be able to use the software, you will need to use the Cisco VPN connection with your PawPrint if you are outside of EBE.
