Starting the Server

CONGO uses a standalone process called 'cserver' to service all requests coming from the clients. These requests come to the server in the form of XMLRPC calls to whatever socket the server is listening on.

To start cserver, you'll need to have a JVM available, as well as the command line tool 'ant'. If you're running in Eclipse, these tools are already available. If you're running standalone, you'll need to make sure you download and install Ant from

Once you have ant available, look for the 'build.xml' file within the CONGO installation directory.

Note, you may need to add your JDK and Ant binary directories to your PATH. You can do this on the command line like this:

 cd "c:\program files\java\jdk(whatever)\bin"
 cd "c:\program files\ant\bin"

If you're running from the command line, cd to that directory, and type:

 ant run-server

If you're running in eclipse, right click on 'build.xml' and select 'Run as... Ant Build'

If all goes well, you should see CONGO compile and start, showing a status similar to this:

CONGO is ready to go!
