It must be obvious but ...

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Post by Bernard46 »

I've downloaded Cumulus MX on a Win 10 PC (no Unix, no Raspberry Pi). I start it up by clicking on CumulusMX.exe and I get a DOS window coming up saying, amongst a few other things

Cumulus running at: http://*:8998/
(Replace * with any IP address on this machine or localhost)
Type Cty-C to terminate

Where do I change the * so that it says localhost and then maybe a browser will be launched or do I just ignore this and type http://localhost:8998; into my browser?

Hi there,

Nothing to worry about with this ... it is purely an informational piece of text.
To access the settings page for Cumulus MX you would open your browser, and then type in any one of the following according to whether or not the pc you are using is on the same network as the pc running Cumulus MX:
... replacing the * with the IP address of the machine running Cumulus MX ... for example: or http://localhost:8998 or a dynamic DNS address which has been forwarded in the router e.g.: http:// joeblogs.dydns.me:8998

One thing to remember though is to open the 8998 port in the firewall and forward it in the router to the PC running the software

When that's done typing the http://address (see above) will open the settings page.

Hope this helps
