--- Configuration Tips ---
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. To get the server running, simply execute the SIMRacingAppsServer...exe
on the same computer that the Simulator is running on.
2. If you do not have Java 1.8 or better installed, it will redirect you to the Java download page.
NOTE: This page may install the 32-bit version of Java. The 64-bit version is faster.
See https://github.com/SIMRacingApps/SIMRacingApps/wiki/Java-64-Bit-Installation on how to find it.
Also see http://wiki.SIMRacingApps.com/Java-Update-Configuration
for detailed instructions on how to configure Java's Automatic Updates so it doesn't interrupt your racing.
3. If a Firewall is running, you might get prompted to allow the server to run.
Depending on if your Ethernet connection was made private or public,
you may be asked to confirm that also. Please select allow.
If your Firewall doesn't prompt you, then you will have to add an exception to allow "java.exe"
for both in-bound and out-bound traffic on all ports.
See https://github.com/SIMRacingApps/SIMRacingApps/wiki/How-to-fix-Firewall-issues for more information.
4. Enter the server address (found in the Title Bar of the server window) in your browser
from any device connected to the same local network.
Connecting from outside the local network is not supported and not recommended due to security concerns.
5. To use the Electron client with the Apps/Widgets overlaid on top of the SIM, you
must have the SIM running in Windowed mode. Please see the following Wiki info to configure the SIM.
https://github.com/SIMRacingApps/SIMRacingApps/wiki/How-to-setup-iRacing-in-Windowed-Mode
6. Please refer to the Quick Start Guide at http://quickstart.SIMRacingApps.com
for more details and options for running the server.
