 +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.
