Starting the Client Program from a Web Browser (fusion_place < 14.0)

This manual is in pilot operation.

The procedure to start the client program from a web browser is as follows.

  1. Access the menu page of the server in a web browser. The URL of the menu page is as follows:

    http://(host):(port)/fusionplace/

    (host) is the hostname of the destination server, and (port) is the port number.

    Hostname:
    If using fusion_place standalone, the hostname is localhost.
    If using a web server, specify the fixed IP address or hostname of the server machine.

    Port number:
    It is the port number specified during fusion_place installation.
    The initial suggested value by the installer is 50000.


    (Example 1) If using standalone and the port number is 50000, the URL is as follows:

    http://localhost:50000/fusionplace/

    (Example 2) If using a web server, the server’s IP address is 192.168.0.2, and the port number is 50000, the URL is as follows:

    http://192.168.0.2:50000/fusionplace/

    (Example 3) If using a web server and the server’s hostname is fusionplace.mycompany.com, and the port number is 50000, the URL is as follows:

    http://fusionplace.mycompany.com:50000/fusionplace/

  2. Click on the following items in the displayed menu to start [Contributor], [Browser], or [Manager] respectively.

    • "Start [Contributor]"

    • "Start [Browser]"

    • "Start [Manager]"

Starting the Client with a Large Memory Allocation

If you are using 32-bit Windows on your client PC, starting each client program ([Contributor], [Browser], [Manager]) from the above menu allocates a maximum of about 256M bytes of memory to the client program.

If you want to start the client with a larger memory allocation, start the client program from the menu displayed at the following URL:

http://(host):(port)/fusionplace/index-1G.html

(host) is the hostname of the destination server, and (port) is the port number. Although the appearance of the menu page is the same, 1G bytes of memory will be allocated to the client program. However, if the memory available on the client PC is insufficient, it may not start from this menu (restarting the PC may free up memory and allow it to start).

It is also possible to change the amount of memory allocation when starting from the usual menu by server-side settings. Please refer to the section "Memory Management".
