Hello, i am in need of help! i downloaded the trial version and worked as you said but i need to ask some question that are not in the help request inside.

1: Do i need to have a strong internet to run the server on my pc ?

2: If i buy any of your servers how would i load it into a website? what i mean is if people want to play they should enter my website to load the server how would this be? i should create my own website or what?

Thank you in advance,

Best regards,
rmelkonian

The more bandwidth you have (uplink and downlink), the more players you can support at any given time. Up to a few hundred players, depending on the hardware.

There are basically two ways to do it. Poker Mavens acts as its own crude web server so it can run as-is without an existing web site. This is how I've setup my demo system at http://www.pmserver.net where Poker Mavens is the only server running, there is no IIS or Apache web server running. If you prefer to embed the client so it appears inside an existing web page, simply create an iframe tag with the positioning and dimensions you want and the src parameter set to URL of the Poker Mavens server, which could be on the same machine (if it's Windows) or anywhere else in the world.

I have a link at the top of my demo site at http://www.pmserver.net that points to my host. I pay $29/month for a Windows 2003 VPS. I connect to it using the Remote Desktop Connection program included with Windows on my local PC. See the first couple of items in the FAQ for more info:

It's unlikely that your host will install any software for you. It's easy using RDC, though. You just connect to your server and drag and drop files via Windows Explorer and install and run software just like you do locally.

I suggest you download and install the trial version of Poker Mavens and read through the help file. Once you do that, you will already know how to install and operate the licensed version.
