Solaris: # tar -xvf NDA3_0.SOL.tar HPUX: # tar -xvf NDA3_0.HP_11.tar

To install the Analyzer Display module on Windows NT, perform the following steps:

# chmod -R 777 /opt/CSCOnfa/NFADisplay

Note   Do not use FTP for the copy because recursiveness of the copy and all subdirectories is not guaranteed.
