Start the Smartlaunch Server

The Smartlaunch Server is where you set up your esports center’s users, and configure your software and hardware. The Smartlaunch Server runs silently in the background, and the only time you need to work on the Server is when you have to alter settings.

The Smartlaunch Server

Once you have installed the Smartlaunch Server on your server computer, you can launch it directly from the desktop. As soon as the server has completed the loading process, it will appear in the system tray in the lower right corner of your screen.

If you double-click the orange Smartlaunch icon, the Server will popup.

  • General
    Shows some general information about the server such as IP address and uptime.
  • Connections
    The actual numbers of concurrent connections, both clients and administrators.
  • Updates
    View the current version of your installation. To check/receive the latest updates press the button called Check for Updates.

Unlocking the Smartlaunch Server

To get access to the Smartlaunch Server you need to press the button called Unlock. This will bring up the following screen prompting you for a username and password.

If this is the first time you try to enter the Smartlaunch Server Settings the standard username and password is admin/admin. We recommend, that you delete/change this account to avoid any unauthorized access to the server.

Entering the Smartlaunch Server Settings

When your username and password have been accepted, two more buttons will be useable – Shutdown and Settings.

Shutting Down the Smartlaunch Server

  1. Unlock the server as described above.
  2. Press Close.
  3. When you get prompted, answer Yes to close the server.

If you close the server, any connected client will continue to run. This is useful if you for some reason need to restart the Smartlaunch Server during rush hour.

Getting Started Using the Smartlaunch Server

At this point, you have completed the installation guide, where you have set up some of the most basic settings. Some of the things you have not configured yet are important settings such as all the games and programs in your center.

We have created a guide that helps you through the process of creating everything you need including License Management and Personal User Files setup.
