The YACEServer.exe is a standalone application that can currently be used with the iPhone and iPad App. The server feature is also available within the desktop application of YACE.
Both application doesn't need each other.

YACE Server
Server started from the desktop application

YACE Server
Standalone Server started from the commandline.


The server can be started from the commandline or from the desktop application.


 Use YACEServer.exe -h for help to the supported parameters.
You can also use the YACEServer.exe.ini file for configuration. This file must be in the same path as the executable.

You can start multiple server an different ports. Make sure to open the used TCP ports for incoming connection at your firewall (see above) and configuring your router (port forwarding), if you want to access your C64 from the internet.

The server application can also use the configuration file create by the YACE64 for Windows application. You can find the file normaly in c:\Users\<your account>\AppData\Roaming\YACE\Config.ini (the AppData directory is normally hidden). Just copy and rename this file (to YACEServer.exe.ini) into the same folder of the YACEServer.exe, then the default parameters are taken from there.

Make sure that the port isn't blocked by your firewall (see Help section "Firewall").
