About this task

Important: If you are connected directly to the engine, make sure you log out and close the web browser window before you change the language for a network engine. Also, make sure all other users log out of the network engine. The engine restarts to complete the language change process.


  1. Start the LIP tool.
  2. In the Language Pack(s) location window, verify, or change if necessary the file location of the product's translated language packs. Click OK.
  3. In the Select Application list, select an engine. For example, to change the language for an NAE55 Site Management Portal, select N50 Class Device (See Help for Examples).
    The following options are available:
    • N50 Class Device (See Help for Examples)
    • N40 Class Device (See Help for Examples)

    N40 Class devices include the NCE25, NIE29, NAE35, NIE39, NAE45, and NIE49.

    N50 Class devices include the NAE55, NIE59, SNE, and SNC.

  5. Click OK.
    Note: If an engine restart is not possible at this time, do not proceed to the next step.

  7. When the message: NxE is now restarting. Depending on the engine, the restart can take from 5 to 20minutes to complete. appears, click OK to clear the message.
    The Results window displays the progress of the language change, and the system saves the results to a text file called log.txt. To open the results, click the Results hyperlink. If the Results window contains an error message, see Troubleshooting.
