Activate the server (zserver)

With everything in place you now can activate the zserver process on your host computer. This program reads the zserver.ini file and starts "listening" for client processes.

Change directory to the Isite/bin directory and initiate the following command as a background process (note the &) so you retain control of the terminal window. You may eventually choose to redirect its output to the /dev/null device (UNIX's garbage can... zserver > /dev/null &) if you don't want to see transactions in this window every time someone connects.
