Frequently Asked Questions About BajEye Client Software:
What is the BajEye (BE) Activity Manager Configuration Console?
The console will become available to you after you have set your password for the first time.
The console contains the various blocking, filtering and notification services available to you in the software.
You must activate and configure these options to meet your needs. Detailed instructions on how to use and configure
these options are available in the BE Users Manual. The manual is available to you in your console under the General
tab by selecting the Users Manual button located near the bottom right of the image. The BajEye Users manual is also available on the Internet at http://www.bajai.comdownloads/manual/bajeye.htm
I installed BajEye and now I can’t get to the Internet, why?
Check that you have set your proxy settings so the machine can find the gateway. Have you added a file type blocking option that stops the machine from accessing the Internet? Close all Internet applications and try again.
I installed BajEye and Set a password but it is not filtering out the content I want to block.
Your BajEye software is set to NO blocking when you do a fresh installation. To block content you must select your configuration by using the console. Then exit the console and open a new browser window. Any browser windows open previous to a change or activation of settings will not be filtered as they have not been instructed by the software to do so.
I configured the console to block according to my preferences; I can still get to some unwanted websites.
Ensure that you have:
If you have done all of these operations and you are still having problems with a site please feel free to submit a URL to email@example.com OR add it to your black list.
- cleared our cache and history from previous tests that you performed?
- activated the Manage Web box on the WWW tab
- activated BE on the General tab before exiting
- closed all previous browser windows after exiting the console
What is happening during the list update that my machine got slow?
If your machine is slow it may be because you have not updated for some time or that your machine does not meet the minimum system requirements. If your machine just meets the minimum system requirements you have just enough memory and resources to perform this operation. Try updating when you do not have users at the machine and be patient.
My list has become corrupt what do I do now?
As a last resort for list repair try the following procedure to replace your list: Using a command prompt window use the – renew option. (by typing listsub –renew) If this does not work and you are a licensed user, please fill out a request for support found at this URL www.bajai.com/support/ and our support team will contact you shortly.
I went to a site that should not be blocked, why am I getting a blocked message?
Is the site you are being blocked from actually the site you requested? It is not uncommon for links to be redirected.
Possibly you have been redirected to another site that is being blocked. Also, blocking may also be due to pornographic advertising on the site you are trying to access. Hitting refresh may solve this problem. It is also possible that the site is misclassified; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe this is the case.
I am trying to uninstall a trial version of BajEye 5.X and I cannot, why?
You MUST run the BajEye console at least once to set an administrative password so you can uninstall the program.
You need to turn the console off and use the Uninstall option in the Start menu. Finally, if you do NOT have the administrator password you can NOT uninstall BE, this is a security feature.
IMPORTANT: ONLY the ADMINISTRATOR password will be recognized during uninstall. During uninstall the BajEye software must be removed with the Uninstall tool provided to you with your BajEye software. Failure to remove software properly (see page 4 of your users manual) will cause undesirable results. This is not a bug - your solution has been designed in this manner to specifically address the unauthorized removal of the software.
What you should know BEFORE calling a BAJAI support representative to help you rebuild you TCP/IP stack and/or remove legacy and corrupt files.

I‘m installing a new version of BajEye software, is there anything I need to know or do before I begin?
IMPORTANT: You must go into the Activity Manager Console and Deactivate BajEye BEFORE you do an upgrade installation. You will find this option on the General tab in the manager, ensure that the white box to the left of BajEye is Activated is unchecked it will give you a short message removing layered protocol then it will read BajEye is NOT ACTIVE.
If BajEye was active, we recommend that you reboot before proceeding then begin your upgrade installation. Do not deactivate or deselect your current filtering preferences, as they will be maintained during the new installation.
I‘m installing an upgrade version of BajEye software; do I uninstall my current copy of BajEye?
NO do not uninstall your current copy of BajEye software; if you uninstall your current copy you will loose your console preferences. During an upgrade installation BAJAI maintains your preferences of current features. NOTE: New features added to BajEye versions are NOT ON and you must configure the new feature options to meet your needs.
Are there any other steps I should take before doing an upgrade installation?
Our technical support staffs strongly recommend that you close all your Internet and network applications before beginning an installation.
Why do I need to reboot BEFORE I do an upgrade installation?
You will need to do a reboot before you begin the new installation. The reason for this is detailed on pages 2-3 of your Users manual.
What is the difference between the Administrator Password and the other password option?
You must set an administrator password to configure your filtering services and configure your preferences.
The Change Enable/Disable Password is provided so you may use it for lower level access to turn
ON or OFF filtering temporarily but will NOT allow you to access the Administrative functions of the BajEye software configuration.
I selected Open Console from the start menu; I got a notice saying it was already running:
Check your start tray and click the Icon.
My URL redirect isn‘t working and I‘m getting an display message that reads: In the BajEye Console you will see message notice display fetching redirection URL!
In browser address bar you will see: http://display%20fetching%20redirection%20url!/ Go to your List update tab in the console and click on the update software tab, follow the installation directions to perform this procedure. NOTE: deactivate BajEye while doing software updates.
I put my license number in but BE keeps asking me to register.
