Using Weather-Display in Client Mode
« on: September 18, 2005, 12:59:35 PM »
This FAQ describes how to set up Weather-Display to run as a stationless client using data from another Weather-Display system. The clientraw.txt datafile can either be uploaded to a webserver or be on a drive accessible via a network by the client machine. The set up of the source system to upload the clientraw.txt file to a webserver is described in another FAQ here http://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,9220.0.html

Please post any questions about this FAQ in this thread http://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/topic,11226.0.html in the Questions forum.
