Get started | 7 - Test the client-server connection

Step 1 - Get the IP address and port

Get the server hardware’s IP address and port. You are going to use this when you connect your client.

To do this:

  1. Go to the Payloads page (Orchestration > Payloads) in the zeuz control panel.

  2. In the list at the bottom of the page, locate the payload you have just set up. (There should be only one payload listed.)

  3. Click MANAGE to display the Payload : Edit page.

  4. In the Payload : Edit page, under Basic Information, locate the details for the IP address and the port, as shown above.
    Make a note of the IP address, and the port number for the port called PortName.
    You do not need to update anything on this page.

Step 2 - Connect a client

To do this:

  • Open a web browser and enter the IP address and port in the address field, separated by a colon ( : ), as shown in the example and image below. For example:

You know it worked correctly when you see a “Welcome to zeuz!” web page and a zeuz favicon!

Step 3 - Check the logs

Check the server logs to see the client connection. To do this, go to the Logs page (Orchestration > Logs) in the zeuz control panel.
Note: It can take a little time for the logs to display in the Logs page.

Now go to 8 - Disable the allocation.
