  1. 1. **** Akamai NetSession Interface **** -------- Overview -------- This file describes the Akamai NetSession Interface. The Akamai NetSession Interface is a download manager application. It was installed on your computer when you downloaded content that uses the service to provide secure, high integrity downloads of large files. The NetSession Interface supports downloading from a central source and between peers. When peer-downloading is enabled, your computer can serve as an upload source for other computers -- without adverse impacts to your computing. Peer-to-peer downloading can provide faster, more effective downloads. The NetSession Interface contains no adware or spyware, is safe and secure, uses minimal resources, and provides you the ability to manage and control its actions, including the ability to uninstall it if you do not want it on your computer. ------------ How It Works ------------ The NetSession Interface does not have a noticeable desktop presence during downloads, since its work is integrated into the sites or applications that use the service. However, there are two interfaces you can use to manage downloads and the interface itself: admintool and a Control Panel extension. -------------------------------------------------------------- Windows Control Panel / Mac OS X System Preferences Extension -------------------------------------------------------------- The Control Panel / System Preferences extension provides you an easy way to manage NetSession functions, such as starting or stopping the service. The extension also provides you with a Troubleshooting test you can run to tell you whether your NetSession Interface is installed correctly and can download properly. When installed, the extensions are available: On the Windows Control Panel: Akamai NetSession Interface Control Panel. On the Mac, on the System Preferences pane: under Other --> Akamai Note that with Windows Vista 64-bit, additional steps may be required to view the NetSession Control Panel in the Windows Control Panel directory. Open the Control Panel, select Additional Options and enable the option to View 32- bit control panel items. ------------------------------------------------ admintool and the NetSession Installation Folder ------------------------------------------------ admintool is a command-line utility used to get information about the current NetSession download activities, to stop or start download sessions, clear the download cache of all downloads, and uninstall the NetSession Interface.
  2. 2. To see all the commands available to you with admintool: 1) Go to the command line of your computer. You can do this as follows: On Windows, select Command Prompt from the Start menu, OR... Run on the Start menu, type "cmd" into the Open text box, then click OK. On Mac OS X, in the Application -> Utilities folder, double-left click Terminal. 2) Go to the Akamai NetSession Interface installation folder. The installation folder location depends on your configuration. Normally, it is found in the following locations, where you would replace <user name> with your user name: On Windows XP: C:Documents and Settings<user name>Local SettingsApplication DataAkamai On Windows Vista and Windows 7: C:Users<user name>AppDataLocalAkamai On Macintosh OS X: /Users/<user name>/Applications/Akamai 3) Type the command admintool help 4) Press the Enter (Return) key All admintool commands are run in the same way as admintool help in steps 3) and 4). ------------ Uninstalling ------------ Before you uninstall, please note: If you uninstall the service, you will delete files downloaded to the cache folders under the installation folders. If you don't want to delete those files, copy or move them to a different folder. If you do not have a serious need to uninstall the service, it may be better not to, since other downloads may require NetSession later. NetSession may be installed again when you download software or media that uses this service. Also, the Akamai NetSession Interface is a shared network library that may be used by multiple applications. It will uninstall correctly only when other applications using the interface are uninstalled. Other applications may not perform correctly if they look for but do not find the NetSession Interface. For that reason, you should not simply delete the NetSession files. Uninstalling on Windows ----------------------- The simplest and preferred method is to use the Add or Remove Programs application. 1) In the Windows Control Panel, run Add or Remove Programs. 2) Select Akamai NetSession Interface
  3. 3. 3) Click Change/Remove, then click Yes to confirm your choice. Windows Alternate Method ------------------------ Alternatively, you may open Windows Explorer, go to the installation folder, then double-click uninstall.exe. Uninstalling on Mac OS X ------------------------ The simplest and preferred method is to use the Finder to go to the NetSession installation folder described above, then double-click the uninstaller app. Confirm your decision. Mac OS X Alternative Methods ---------------------------- There are two alternative uninstall methods. The first alternative method also works in Windows, but the methods listed in the Windows section are simpler and are preferred for that system. 1) As described in the "admintool" section above, go to the command line, and then go to the NetSession installation folder. 2) Type the command: admintool uninstall -force 3) Press the Enter (Return) key to complete the command. The Launch Unload Mac OS X Alternative --------------------------------------- This alternative method may be used, for example, if you deleted admintool without running the admintool uninstall steps described just above. This uninstall involves required steps of manually stopping the client, then removing the installation directory, the automatic startup script, and the preferences panel. 1) As described in the "admintool" section above, go to the command line. 2) Type the following lines, and after typing each line, press the Enter (Return) key to complete the command: launchctl unload ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.akamai.single-user-client.plist rm -rf ~/Applications/Akamai rm -rf ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.akamai.single-user-client.plist rm -rf ~/Library/PreferencePanes/AkamaiNetSession.prefPane 3) If the NetSession client isn't stopped when you have gone through these steps, restart your computer to complete the operation. ----------------------------- Further Support & Information ----------------------------- The Control Panel / System Preferences extension provides an easy way to manage many NetSession functions, and it provides help in Troubleshooting and links to more information. It is described above in the section, "Windows Control Panel / Mac OS X System Preferences Extension."
