Accessing the UI

HomeGenie user interface can be accessed from any web browser entering the url

     http://<server_ip>:<port>/

Where server_ip is the IP address of the machine where HomeGenie is running and port can be 80 or the first available port starting from 8080. (ex. http://192.168.1.150:8080/)

To find out which port number the service is running on, enter the following command from the homegenie folder:

cat serviceaddress.txt

The port settings can be changed either from the maintenance page or editing the systemconfig.xml file located in the application folder. The service must be stopped when editing the configuration file manually.
