Install ROEL GPRS server ROEL GPRS server will be used for receiving reports from ROEL communicators, that are able to send on TCP/IP events. Being a Microsoft Windows XP service, the only operating system allowed is Windows XP. In order to install the service, you will need the SetupGPRSServer_vxxx.exe installation kit. Start the setup program and follow the instructions provided by the installation wizard, as follows:
