When it comes to truePlay1.3, user has no choice on which server is used. This is not the case for trueSpace7.51.

Here in this first image (for those using trueSpace7.51), the Link Editor is set to see inside the "System" area. You have to navigate via the orange corner of the "2D" button up a few levels from your default view area. Once you get into the System area, you see that I highlighted the "Network" object.

Here the second image shows inside the "Network" object in Link Editor. Here is where you can manually check which server you are on. It is possible that instead of tpportal.caligari.com, you may have tsportal.caligari.com.

To match the server that truePlay1.3 users are using, change/edit the server to show tpportal.caligari.com. Now by default, port 1109 represents the main forum area where everyone connects by default. On the "dzignr" object, it shows the port as being 1111, which represents the Meeting room address. You can set port if you like, but the server address is the key element in the scenario. Once you are hooked up to go to correct server, you can use the Link Bar to access the Meeting room.

Now there are only two servers at moment and both have relatively the same setup, which is why things look similar but not the same. Paul, who works very hard to keep things organized on the servers, does his best to keep them the same but this is not always going to be the case. This is because folks can visit and collaborate on either server and change objects and such. The only true way to tell where you are is via the Network object's server address.

Once you are familiar with this and how to change the server, you will be able to tell where you are and if you are in the right area for the meeting.

Hope is helpful :)
