The Play Configuration Panel

Unless deactivated, the Play configuration panel should be triggered each time you hit the Play button.
You can also access the panel by clicking the gear icon on the upper-right corner of the main window, then selecting the Play tab.

The configuration panel contains 2 items:

  • IP Address: This is the IP address of the system you want to send messages to. The IP address should be a series of numbers (example: “”). If you want to send messages to your local host, provide your IP address (localhost is not supported).
  • Port: This is the port the receiving system is listening to. Make sure that firewalls are configured correctly in order to enable Message Player to establish a TCP connection to the destination server on that port. Contact your organization’s system administrator for help with this task.
