Server Monitor


The Rocrail Server Monitor provides basic information and control over the Server with a WEB Browser. It runs in a light-weight HTTP server built in to Rocrail that you can browse from any computer that can reach the Server via TCP/IP.

By default the Server Monitor is available on port 8008. This service is not available over an Internet connection unless the port has been opened in all firewalls between the Server and the Internet. You will need to configure your firewalls and network to make the Server Monitor available to any computer besides the Rocrail Server.
