       FedEx Office SharePoint Feature Installation for Administrators

       This document is intended to provide step by step instructions on how to deploy the solutions,
       activate the FedEx Office SharePoint feature and modify your proxy settings. The proxy settings
       are an optional step and only necessary if your SharePoint installation must access the Internet
       via a proxy server and if your SharePoint installation hasn’t already been configured to use your
       proxy server via settings in your web.config files.


    1. Run the installer called SendToFedexOfficeSetup.exe.

               After install completes you will need to deploy the solutions using the SharePoint Central
               Administrator or via the STSADM (SharePoint Team Services Administration). The
               SharePoint Central Administration can be located under Administrative Tools /
               SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.

    2. Under Central Administration click on the Operations tab.
    3. Click on the Solution Management link to see the SharePoint solutions that the installed added to
       the SharePoint Solution store.

    4. You should see both the FedEx Office Proxy Configuration solution and the SendToFedExOffice
       solution. If you did not install the SendToFedExOffice farm version, then the exact name will look
       different than in the screenshot. As noted at the beginning of the installation document, deploying
       the FedEx Office Proxy Configuration solution is optional.

    5. Click on the solution/s you want to deploy. You can see some details regarding the solution after
       you click on it like what is shown below.

    6. If you click on “Deploy Solution”, you can schedule the deployment or deploy it now which is the
       default option. Please note that deploying a solution immediately will restart all front-end web
       servers.

    7. After the solutions have been deployed, you should now see the status change to deployed for all
       solutions that have been deployed.

    8. After the solutions have been deployed, you can now activate them. This installation guide
       assumes that you selected farm scope installation. If you selected a different scope during the
       installation process you will need to activate it accordingly.

        If you click on the Operations tab and then click on the Manage farm features next to the red
        arrow as shown in the image below, it will give you the option to activate the feature.

    9. Click on the Activate button for the Send to FedEx Office feature to activate it. Please note that
       when the feature is activated, the web.config file/s will be updated and as a result, SharePoint will
       automatically reload the site collections and sites.

    10. Perform the same steps for all solutions.
    11. After the feature has been activated, test it by accessing a site collection or site where it was
        activated. Navigate to the site URL , ie.. http://your-sharepoint-server:15000 .
    12. Go to any document library for example “Shared Documents.” Click on the dropdown list and
        verify the “Send to FedEx Office” option is available.
    13. Select a document and click on “Send to FedEx Office.”
    14. Verify the user confirmation screen appears.




    15. Select “Send File” to upload the file to FedEx Office Print Online and verify that the FedEx Office
        Print Online has launched in a separate browser. If you did not receive an error and the browser
        window didn’t launch, verify your popup blocker settings. You may need to add
        https://partner.fedexkinkos.com to the popup blocker.

        Proxy Setup

    16. If the SharePoint installation is behind a proxy server, SharePoint needs to have the proxy
        settings set up in the web.config files. As explained previously in this document, this is only
        necessary if you are behind a proxy server and your SharePoint server doesn’t have any proxy
        settings defined in the SharePoint web.config files. First, make sure you have deployed the
        solution “fedexofficeproxyconfiguration.wsp” in the SharePoint Central Administration – Solution
        Management.

    17. You can confirm if the proxy has been set up by opening up the web.config file of any SharePoint
        web application.




    18. The proxy settings is defined under the tag <defaultProxy> and the tag <proxy /> is where it’s
        defined. If you already have these settings defined, then you don’t need to follow any of the
        following steps.




 FedEx Confidential 

 
    19. You need to run the SharePoint administration console to configure the proxy settings. Open the
        command console. If you are unsure about how to use a stsadm command you can use the “-
        help” switch followed by the command. This is true for all stsadm commands. To configure the
        proxy, enter the command: “stsadm –help fedexofficeproxyconfigure” then all the required and
        optional switches can be viewed. The switches in brackets are optional.




    20. To set it up and update all SharePoint web applications in the SharePoint farm, it is
        recommended that you run the following command. You need to set your proxy server settings
        instead of the example below http://your-proxyserver.litware.com .

    21. Depending on the size of your SharePoint installation, it may take a while before the changes
        have been deployed to all web applications. The web.config file should now look similar to this:




    22. If the browser is run from a machine behind a proxy server, such as directly from the SharePoint
        farm servers then you also need to use a proxy server for your browser before the SharePoint
        feature can connect to Print Online. In Internet Explorer, go to Tools/Internet
        Options/Connections/LAN Settings to confirm.

    23. Verify your proxy settings and click OK.
