 1. check the '''Enable''' box

To view the Spot Database Display from a web browser running on another device, you must first determine the network name of the PC on which SpotCollector is running:

 * on Windows XP,
   * open the '''Windows Control Panel'''
   * run the '''System''' applet
   * in the '''System Properties''' window select the '''Computer Name''' tab
   * note the name given in the '''Full computer name''' setting

 * on Windows 7, open the '''Windows Control Panel'''
   * select '''System and Security'''
   * select '''System'''
   * note the name given in the '''Full computer name''' setting



If the network name of the PC running SpotCollector is Fido, then the URL http://fido/spots will display the Spot Database in any web browser on your LAN. Alternatively, you can use the network address of the PC running SpotCollector, e.g. http://192.168.1.102/spots .

A smaller web page optimized for display on mobile handsets is also available. Using the above example, the URLs would be http://fido/smallspots and http://192.168.1.102/smallspots .
