12.5. Connecting to a server using Java Web Start

As an alternative to manually running the remote client or using a web browser, it is also possible to launch the client using Java Web Start. This is a convenient way to run the client on an arbitrary host.

To connect using Java Web start, the client system must hava Java (minimum 7.0) and Java Web start installed. Then, using a browser on that system, connect to the server with the TCP port that it is using - 8087 by default - eg http://server:8087. You should see the sFlowTrend-Pro server web page, which includes a link to start the client. Click this link, and the client should be downloaded from the server, launched, and connect to the server.
