The Turbo Server Portal gives users access to application repositories from the Turbo Launcher, Turbo Client command line tools, or from a connected Turbo Streaming Server instance. The Portal is assigned to port 80 by default.
If the server has an Authentication Type that enables anonymous access, users can launch applications without logging in. If the server requires users to log in with a username and password, however, users must provide valid credentials to access the hub and application repositories.
If you are a user and need to log in but do not know your username and password, contact your Administrator to retrieve your credentials.
Signing In and Out via Turbo Launcher
Users can also log in or out via the Turbo Launcher after it is installed on their local machine. Users can bring up the Turbo Launcher by either going to the System Tray or hitting the keys "Alt + Windows." If the user is not logged in already, a login form will be available. If logged in, the user can click on the arrow in the lower-left corner of the Console and select "Sign Out" or "Exit."
When specifying the server URL in the login form, use one of the conventions, below, as appropriate:
- Using http on the default port (80): http://<server>
- Using http on any other port: http://<server>:<port>
- Using https (SSL) on the default port (443): https://<server>
- Using https (SSL) on any other port: https://<server>:<port>
Installing the Turbo Client
The Turbo Client interacts with the Turbo VM kernel to allow container execution. If you want your Turbo Client to automatically be updated for compatibility and feature fixes, download the Windows client installer from http://turbo.net/downloads. If you want to manage updates manually, download the Windows client installer from the hub at http://[hubserver]/Plugin/Install/ (note that the path is case sensitive and requires the trailing slash).
