The Xfcc Server Setup dialog reads in the currently specified xfcc
configuration and displays all servers specified in the config file.
The dialog is separated in two parts: the upper half lists all server
names defined, while the lower part lists all currently set
configuration values for these files.
Server name: This specifies the name used for this specific
server and to generate unique game IDs. The name should consist of a
single word containing only characters (a-z and A-Z), numbers and the
characters "-" and "_". It is treated case sensitive.
Login name: specifies the name used to log into a
specific server. It is a wise custom to use only characters, numbers
and "-" as well as "_" in this name.
Password: defines the password used for login. The
same rules apply as for the Login name. Note Scid currently
stores your passwords on the hardisc in unencrypted form. For this
reason keep the directory safe.
URL: This is the base URL for the Xfcc interface of the
correspondence chess server. It can be found at the servers homepage.
Some examples for common servers are:
To switch between the individual server settings just select the
server to change from the upper listbox. Its current values will then
be displayed in the entry fields and can be adopted. Clicking on
another server in the list will activate the new settings.
To add a new server, just hit the Add button. A new entry
will be created that is prefilled with some text to replace. Please
keep in mind that the server name has to be unique in your setup.
To delete a server select it from the list and press the
Delete button. All values for this specific server will
be prepended by a hash mark (#) marking this entry as deleted.
Therefore, if a server was deleted by accident, just remove the hash
marks in front of the entries.
Hitting OK will Scid have to store your current setup. At
this point all servers marked as deleted are deleted, all new servers
are added to the setup. By pressing Cancel all changes
are lost, the old setup stays in place.
