How to install the server
The Quick Scope Server is composed of the ScienceAtHandServer.jar and the Vernier NGIO native libraries. The Vernier libraries are contained in theLabQuest Software Development Kit. Place the jar file and the native libraries in the same folder and run the jar file from a command line.
Starting the server
On OSX , the command line to run these is “java -d32 -jar ScienceAtHandServer.jar -port port_num -samplerate sample_rate” and on Windows it is “java -jar ScienceAtHandServer.jar -port port_num -samplerate sample_rate”.
Command Line Options
The server defaults to port 8080, the port can be specified with a -port portnum option on the command line. The sample rate determines the maximum sample rate for all LabQuests attached to the server. The default sample rate of 10000 samples/second allows for about 100 – 200 probes on a wifi G system.
