Viewing the Spot Database Display from Another Computer, Tablet, or SmartPhone

SpotCollector's built-in Web Server enables you to view entries in the Spot Database Display using a web browser running on a computer, tablet, or smartphone connected to the PC on which SpotCollector is running - either wirelessly, or via a local area network (LAN).

To enable SpotCollector's Web Server, do the following in the Web Server panel on the Configuration window's Spot Database tab:

  1. set the Port to 80

  2. set the Spots per page to 30 (you can increase or decrease this later)

  3. set the Refresh interval (minutes) to 5 (you can decrease this later, but not to less than 0.5)

  4. 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:

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 .
