This script is a tool for quick Globster configuration. It is based on globsterctl and it is supposed to be started once right after globster is launched. Script automatically creates hubs saved in config file and connects the client to them.


Installation and usage

Download the script and move it to any location on your filesystem. Then create config XML file and save it in the same directory as globster-xmlconf.xml, you can use the example configuration at the bottom of this document.

To start the script:

cd /path/to/script
./ [<config>]

Always use full path to the configuration file. If no config file is given, the script searches for globster-xmlconf.xml in the script path or /etc/globster. We changed the directory to the script path and we have the config in the same directory so we can leave this argument empty.

To run in background:

./ &
