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

Use the VenueClient from the machine running the venue server to request a 
service cert for that machine.  Install it and set it as the default.  Then 
run the Venues Server.

I usually set up a vnc session and run the venues server and bridge server 
through that, that way my machine is headless, but I can always connect and 
run the venueclient to configure things if necessary.  Also, I've had 
trouble in the past with the bridgeserver and quickbridge not working 
correctly if Quickbridge doesn't have a console to output to.  So vnc 
solves this problem as well.

Hope this helps
