Hi Willy,

Right now the GUI only supports controlling one instance of the client running at a time. You will have to start the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th one manually I'm afraid (or create shortcuts).

I never took into account SMP support when I wrote the GUI so if it sees any nfsnet client running it will change the "Start" button into a "Stop" button and not allow you to launch the clients properly.

The GUI and client itself are completely seperate programs and the nfsnet client can run without the GUI at all (the GUI is just a monitoring app). The way to launch a 4 clients at the same time would be to open 4 command prompts and run the same nfsnetclient.exe from each (or create a shortcut to the nfsnetclient.exe and double click on it 4 times which will launch 4 seperate instances of the clients). The lock files will get the client to use the correct directories for data.

In the future, the GUI should support SMP machines but that might not be until the next major release.

Jeff.
