QuotaSatellite is a commercial, simple, easy-to-use and cross-platform graphical software implemented in Java and designed from the offset to display your Internet consumption and quota limits.
Designed for the Viasat SurfBeam 2 modem
The application is engineered to support the Viasat SurfBeam 2 modem, which is delivered in Europe by Tooway, via its distributors, and provides direct Internet connection via the Ka-Sat satellite operated by SkyLogic.
Before starting the installation, make sure that you have Oracle Java JRE (Java Runtime Environment) 1.6 or later installed on you GNU/Linux distribution. Then, download the latest release of QuotaSatellite from Softpedia or via its official website (see the homepage link at the end of the article), save the archive on your Home directory and extract its contents with an archive manager tool.
Then, double click on the InstallQuotaSatellite.jar file to start the installer - alternatively you can open a terminal emulator, move to the location where you’ve extracted the archive file (e.g. cd /home/softpedia/installQuotaSatelliteLinux1.7) and run the ‘java -jar InstallQuotaSatellite.jar’ command - and follow the on-screen instructions to install QuotaSatellite.
Getting started with QuotaSatellite
The software will be automatically installed on your Home directory, so open it, access the QuotaSatellite folder and double click the QuotaSatellite.jar file to start it. In order for the software to run correctly, you need to check if your Viasat SurfBeam 2 modem is turned on and if the Internet connection is active, otherwise it won’t work.
Runs on Linux, Windows and Mac
Being written in Java, QuotaSatellite is a cross-platform application that runs on any operating system where the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) technology is available, including GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Both 32 and 64-bit computer platforms are supported at this time.
