INSTALLING TCP

The TCP pages are displayed via a webserver running on the scrutelle computer within a local Wi-Fi network
(no internet connection is required for this)
The pages are controlled by an admin program tcp.exe running on the webserver

To install TCP you need first to Install and then Configure the Apache HTTP Server

The V9.8 download includes the files required for TCP - these are in C:\scrutelle\tcp You need to configure Apache so that this folderis visible

and finally - You need to tell scrutelle where to find the TCP program - this is done in scrutelle SETTINGS

IP addresses should be used. Windows resolves names via the network neigborhood (Samba). This is not supported on tablets and smartphones

You can use the Find IP Addr button to find the IP address of your computer

This is a useful reference about DNS servers: www.howstuffworks.com/dns.htm

STOPPING AND STARTING THE APACHE SERVER

You will probably only want to run the Apache server on competition day. Here are 2 BAT files which can be used

These scripts need to be run as Administrator

rem apache-stop.bat
cd C:\Apache24\bin
httpd.exe -k stop
timeout 10

rem apache-start.bat
cd C:\Apache24\bin
httpd.exe -k start
timeout 10
