The iHelp utility is necessary to update the firmware on Flex devices. It is also used to locate and configure iTach Flex, iTach devices, and GC-100s installed on the network, and also facilitates the upgrade functionality for the iTach Flex and iTach family of products. Download iHelp and run the .exe. This file is an executable and does not require installation. Run iHelp on a Windows PC connected to the same network as your GC devices. iHelp listens for iTach Flex, iTach, and GC-100 multicast beacons and displays every MAC ID and IP address within one minute. For instructions on updating the Flex firmware using iHelp, please see our simple tutorial. iHelp will automatically notify you if your unit is out of date to begin a firmware upgrade. For details on version based changes, view the iHelp Release Notes.
