Starting Servers on Linux

The simplest way to make RoboServer start automatically on Linux is to use crontab. Use the following command to create or edit the list of scheduled jobs in Linux for the desired user (it may be easiest to do this either as root or as that particular user):

crontab -u someUser -e

To the list of scheduled jobs add for example:

@reboot $HOME/KapowKatalyst_9.4.9/bin/RoboServer -p 50000


@reboot $HOME/KapowKatalyst_9.4.9/bin/RoboServer -p 50000 -MC

This way the RoboServer program will be started with the indicated command-line arguments upon reboot. Note that you must identify the bin directory under the actual installation folder.
