[AG-TECH] Re: Machine running VenueServer must also run VenueClient in order to function properly

Hi All:

I am running a VenueServer under FC2, kernel 2.6.9. The VenueServer
is started from the command line. I also issue my own certificates.

VenueClients can successfully connect to the VenueServer from either
Linux machines or Windows XP machines via multicast or unicast.
The only caveat to this is that all of the above requires that the machine
running the VenueServer must also be running a VenueClient that is connected
to the VenueServer. If I only run a VenueServer on the machine then when a
user connects via a VenueClient, the user can connect but only rat will
I have tried many permutations and combinations including running
and NodeManagement.py in addition to the VenueServer. I have had
success when simply running a VenueServer and AGServiceManager
under an xterm but never under a console window.

My goal is to be able to run the VenueServer on a headless machine. Is this
possible? Does the VenueServer require the X server to be running on the
machine? If so, why?

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
