How to set up the ASD:Suite

To get on your way with ASD:Suite, you'll need four things:

  • An Internet connection
    Note: In case you connect to the Internet through a proxy server, you will also need the proxy server settings. Typically you can get this information from your IT department.
  • Your username and password. Once your ASD:Suite user account  has been created by your ASD Administrator, you will receive an automated email with a temporary password. Go to the ASD:Portal  (portal.verum.com), login using your email address and this temporary password, and set your personal password.

  • The ASD:Suite installation. You can download the latest version of the ASD:Suite from the ASD:Portal. Login to the ASD:Portal, select ‘Downloads’ in the top menu, and click on the green Download button. Extract the downloaded zip-file, start the installation from the file ‘ASD_Suite_Release_xxxxx_Setup.exe’, and follow the installation-instructions.

  • A license certificate file. You will receive this license certificate file from your ASD Administrator. The filename should end with a .pem extension.

Follow the instructions below to install the license certificate file and set up the connection to the ASD Server:

  1. Copy the license certificate file to a local folder of your choice on your PC.

  2. Start the ASD:Suite ModelBuilder, you’ll see the ASD Server Login dialog:




  3. Click on the ‘Browse...’ button, and select the license certificate file you copied in step 1.

  4. Enter your email address and your personal ASD:Suite password. In case you want to save your password so that you won't need to fill in this dialog in the future, put a tick in the 'Save Password' checkbox.

  5. In case your connection to the Internet goes via a proxy server, continue with step 6, otherwise click 'Log in'. A connection to the ASD Server will be established and the ASD:Suite ModelBuilder is ready for use.

  6. Click on the 'More >>' button, this expands the dialog to show the Server Settings:




  7. In case your connection to the Internet goes via a proxy server, then tick the checkbox ‘Enable HTTP Tunnelling’ and fill in the proxy server settings under ‘HTTP Tunnelling’. In general you can obtain these settings from your IT department. The username and password are the username and password that you have to use to access the proxy server, not your ASD:Suite username and password.

  8. Click 'Log In'. A connection the the ASD Server will be established and the ASD:Suite ModelBuilder is ready for use.
