The installer should be run from the terminal, either as root, or using sudo

It must be run from the same directory as 'isf.cfg', unless you specify the PAC URL

as the first command-line argument, e.g.

sudo ./linux_installer http://cloud.isheriff.com/pac/proxy_XXXXX_mydomain_com.pac



{The PAC URL is unique for every account and is specified under isf.cfg file


The installer will use wget to fetch files if available, if not, it will attempt to use curl.

If you need to use a proxy to access the files, the easiest way is setting one in /etc/wgetrc, or

if the fetch is done via curl, read the comments in the top of the file for the CURLPROXY variable.
