 ====== Synchronet Control Panel (Windows) ====== ====== Synchronet Control Panel (Windows) ======
-FIXME+ 
 +The Synchronet Control Panel is a Windows GUI application for controlling and monitoring the various Synchronet servers and services with built-in chat, user editor, configuration, and other conveniences for the Synchronet sysop. 
 + 
 +{{:monitor:sbbsctrl.png?500|Synchronet Control Panel screen shot}} 
 + 
 +===== Executable ===== 
 + 
 +The Synchronet Control Panel is a native Windows executable program. 
 + 
 +The executable file is: ''[[dir:exec]]/sbbsctrl.exe'' 
 + 
 +===== Configuration ===== 
 + 
 +The control panel may be used to enable/disable and configure the various [[:server:|Synchronet Servers]] with GUI dialogs, launch the [[util:SCFG]] utility with the BBS->Config menu option: 
 + 
 + 
 +{{:monitor:sbbsctrl_configure.png|}} 
 + 
 + (or Configure->BBS tray icon option), and edit the various [[:config:text files]], [[:config:INI files]], [[:config:CFG files]], and [[:config:filter files]] used by Synchronet. 
 + 
 +==== Wizard ==== 
 + 
 +A configuration wizard can be launched with the BBS->Configure menu option to take the new sysop through the primary configuration settings required to run Synchronet, one page at a time. 
 + 
 +{{:monitor:scfgwizard.png?300|Synchronet Configuration Wizard}} 
 + 
 +The wizard is started automatically the first time the control panel is executed after installation. 
 + 
 +==== Settings ==== 
 + 
 +The control panel configuration settings are stored in the Windows Registry key:\\ ''HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Swindell\Synchronet Control Panel'' 
 + 
 +These settings may be exported to or imported from a ''[[config:sbbsctrl.ini]]'' file (e.g. for moving control panel settings to another computer) using the File->Export settings and File->Import Settings menu options. 
 + 
 +Many of the Control Panel settings are modified via the File->[[monitor:sbbsctrl:Properties]] menu item. 
 +===== Customization ===== 
 + 
 +The fonts and colors used in the various monitoring windows are sysop configurable via the File->Properties->Customize menu. 
 + 
 +The control panel may also be used to edit the Synchronet BBS ''[[custom:text.dat]]'' file and [[custom:menu files]]. 
 + 
 +===== Windows Services ===== 
 + 
 +The control panel may be used to control and monitor in-process servers and services or to control and monitor the Synchronet Windows Services (for Windows NT-based operating systems, including XP, Vista, and Windows 7).  
 + 
 +Certain features (e.g. chat) are currently not available when using the control panel with Synchronet Windows Services. 
 + 
 +See [[ntsvcs|Synchronet Windows Services]] for details.
