In an earlier article I explained how to get the HTTP server up and running. Once it is working, you should be able to go to http://yourserverIP/ActionPad/ActionPad.html but who is going to remember that whole ugly path name? I’m going to show you how to create a simple redirect so that you can just go to http://yourserverIP and automatically be sent to your action pad.
In your root directory, create a new text file (or open the existing file) that you have set as the default file in the HTTP server settings. In that file, paste the following:
<title>e:cue Action Pad Redirect</title>
You are being redirected to the action pad. If you are
not automatically directed, please click
window.location = "/ActionPad/ActionPad.html";
Save the file and then go to a web browser and simply type in the IP addressA unique network address that consists of four numbers separated by periods such as 192.168.123.1 (which happens to be the default address for all e:cue equipment). of the HTTP server. you should automatically jump to the action pad page as soon as you type it in.
