What does all of that stuff mean in my pserver window?

When you start up your pserver, this window below is what you will see with Ver 4.4 for Windows.

hen the server boots up, you can see the welcome message, its read the prefs file, the pat file, tells you how many rooms it has loaded from that pat file. The log window will also tell you what your IP addy is (if you are on a network, that wont be your true IP), and you will see it register with the Palace Live directory.

You need a registration code to run a pserver. If you have just installed the Palace server and it asks you for a registration code you can use this one:
It will give all users, even unregistered ones, the ability to wear props (avatars) and does not limit the amount of users you can receive. (this can be limited by your connection and / or computer resources)
