How To: Force Gizmo client to connect to a specific Server
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 28 March 2019 07:38 PM

Instead of letting Gizmo client scan for the server at startup, you can force it to connect to a specific server ip/hostname.

This is required when the server and clients are on a different network.


To force the client to connect to a specific server at boot:

  1. If gizmo client is running, uninstall client before next step. Instructions here
  2. Right click - properties the gizmo client icon on the desktop.
  3. Add the following at the end of the shortcut's target: "connect server_ip_address"
  4. Press ok and launch the shortcut

If the shortcut is not on the Desktop:

Press windows key + R 

Enter the path to gizmoclient.exe followed by: "connect server_ip_address"
