This Wiki page describes how to connect CPRS to the Virtual Machine.
[Update: Please note that a newer version of the Virtual Machine is here:]
This newer version contains the FOIA version of December 6th.
For the instructions in this page,
please use the Virtual Machine that is described here
This Virtual Machine contains the FOIA release of August 19th, 2012.
Please go through the following steps:
A) Launch the VM from Virtual Box
B) Login as the "softhat" user with the password = softhat
C) Double click on the "Terminal" icon in the Desktop to open a terminal.
D) In that terminal, type "ifconfig" and ENTER. This should show you something similar to the image below:
The output of this command describes all the network interfaces that are currently enabled in the VM.
In the first block, labeled as "eth1" look for the field labeled as "inet addr" in the second line.
In this case it contains the values "inet addr:192.168.200.8".
This is the IP number of the current eth1 interface in the network. This number will be different for you, and will depend on the DNS configuration of your network. The number can also change from one time of booting the VM to the next, depending on the setup of your local network.
At this point, simply write down the number. We will refer to it as the "IP number of the VM".
E) Download the CPRS package from the following link:
F) Expand the zip file in your computer
You will see a set of files similar to the screenshot below:
G) Select the "CPRSChart" icon, right click on it and create a shortcut. You can place the shortcut in this same directory, or in your Desktop, or in another directory.
H) Once you have created the shortcut, right click on it, and select "Properties". You will see a window similar to the screenshot below:
I) In the field "Target", add the text that is highlighted here in blue,
- S=192.168.200.8 P=9200 CCOW=disable
but, instead of using the IP number "192.168.200.8", use the IP number that you found in your VM in step (D).
Keep the port number "9200" unchanged. Once you have changed the IP number, click on the OK button.
J) Now that your shortcut is configured to locate the VM by its IP number, you are ready to run CPRS. Make sure that your VM is still ON. Now simply double click in the shortcut of CPRSchart. This will show you the following initial screen while CPRS is loading...
K) Once CPRS has finished loading, you will se a screen similar to:
L) In this screen you can now
enter the "Access Code" that is softhat2011!
and then the "Verify Code" that is osehra2011%
M) The login process should go smoothly, and you should be presented with the following screen:

Of course, you can be sure that if there are any errors, they are all mine :-)
