Global Cache’ Utilities

  • iHelp – released 12/23/2019
    iHelp version 5.3 (release notes)

     The iHelp utility is necessary to update the firmware on Flex devices. It is also used to locate and configure Global Connect, Flex, iTach devices, and GC-100s installed on the network, and also facilitates the upgrade functionality for the 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 Global Connect, 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 iHelp will automatically notify you if your unit is out of date to begin a firmware upgrade.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.

  • iLearn (version 2.9) – This .exe file is the companion application for our IR products, including all iTach and iTach Flex models, the GC-IRL, and the GC-IRE (with attached GC-RG1). This utility allows for the capture of IR commands, conversion between Global Caché and Hex (CCF) formats. Read the iLearn Release Notes for version based changes. We also have provided a brief tutorial on using the features of iLearn and some common troubleshooting tip.

For a breakdown of its functionality and changes from the previous version, view the iTest Release Notes.
