Connecting to a Channel

  1. Click the icon in the center of the main window to show the Connections Window which allows you to connect to a Channel

    A Channel is hosted by a just:in Engine, so – at this point – it is mandatory that one or multiple Channels are configured and running, otherwise you cannot connect to a Channel. 



  2. Enter the IP-Address and the Port of a Mac Channel and press the Add button. Repeat this for every Channel you would like to connect to from this user interface.

    In a default test setup (i.e. Engine and User Interface are running on the same machine) you may use the following data:
    IP-Address: 127.0.0.1
    Port: 50000.

  3. Press the Connect button to connect to a Channel.


  4. Upon successful connection just:in displays the Channel Preview.
