-The heart of the system is the Rocrail server and it's configuration file rocrail.ini. 
-It is possible to edit the rocrail.ini by hand using the [[http://​rocrail.net/​doc/​rocrail-wrappers/​wrapper-en-index.html|wrapper documentation]],​ but it is much more 
-comfortable using the "​Rocrail Properties"​ dialog found in the Rocgui. 
- 
-With the **Rocrail Properties** dialog you can configure the rocrail server to meet your hard- and software. 
-But first of all we have to start the rocrail server and connect to it with the Rocgui. 
- 
-=====Starting the Rocrail Server===== 
-After installing the Rocrail setup or package, you can find the Rocrail shortcuts under Programs when running Windows or as 
-Desktop icons when running Linux. 
-Just start the server by clicking "​Rocrail"​. It starts running in a console window writing many log lines which should not bother you. 
-You can minimize the window if it annoys you. 
- 
-=====Starting the Rocrail Client===== 
-Now it is time to start the Rocview by selecting the "​Rocrview"​ shortcut. 
-If everything is OK it connects to the Rocrail server and displays the Demo Layout. 
- 
-=====Select your language===== 
-{{lang.png}} 
-The Rocgui must be restarted after selecting a language. 
- 
- 
-=====Configure the Server===== 
-From the Mainmenu select **File->​Rocrail Properties...** 
- 
-The Tabs: 
-1) **General** 
-You do not have to change things here unless you want to use a layout file other than "​plan.xml"​. 
-(see: "​Upload a plan file to the Server"​) 
- 
-2) **Trace** 
-Skip this one; only needed if you have problems and want to send an extended trace to rocrail.net. 
- 
-3) **Service** 
-Only needed if you want to activate the service for the [[WebClient]],​ 
-or if you want a faster clock. 
- 
-4) **Automatic** 
-Leave it as it is; fine tuning for automatic mode. 
- 
-5) **Controller** 
-This tab is the most important one which configures the connection between the Rocrail Server and your Digital Controller like IntelliBox. 
-Here you can add and delete controllers. Just select a controller from the list and push the properties button to configure the controller.
