Server Interface

The System tab contains a list of server settings for configuring and customizing your poker server. It also contains a toolbar for starting and stopping the game server as described below.

Toolbar Commands

Start - Click this button to put your game server online. This allows players to connect and log into your poker site. Ring games and tournaments that are set for "Auto Online" will be activated immediately.

Stop - Click this button to take your game server offline. No one can connect to your server when it is in the offline state.

Client - Click this button to load the player client into a new browser tab.

Admin - (Gold feature) Click this button to display the admin rights editor.

In the non-Gold editions, only the "Administrator" can log into the Admin Console. In the Gold edition, you can allow any number of player accounts to login into the Admin Console by creating at least one admin profile and then entering that profile name into their "Admin Profile" setting. Those players can then login using their normal player name and password. Multiple accounts can share the same profile. The data they can see and functions they can perform depend on the rights specified in the profile. To give full access rights (i.e., same as the Administrator), create a profile (names can be up to 15 alphanumeric characters) and assign ReadWrite to every item. Warning: be careful with the "Browse" rights on the Sys tab as that can give access to all files on your server. Click the OK button to save all changes made.

Edit - Click this button to edit the selected property value in the list below the toolbar. You can also double-click a property value directly to invoke the value editor.

Message - Click this button to post a message from the Administrator into the lobby chat box in the client interface.

Help - Click this button to display the help menu.

Logout - Click this button to log out of the Admin Console. The poker server will continue to run and accept player connections if you clicked the Start button.

Property Editor

The property editor contains a list of configuration settings, grouped into several sections as described below. To edit a property value, either double-click it or select it and then click the Edit button on the toolbar. When a property is selected in the list, a brief description of it is displayed in the yellow box just below the list. Note: Some properties (displayed in red color) cannot be changed while the game server is online.
