Press the "Options" button to display the configuration pane, enter an IP-address of the computer where TrueCafe Server is installed.

Select a dial-up connection if you want to connect/disconnect it when a customer logs on/logs off. This is useful in case you have a remote terminal connected via GPRS, etc.

You can change options freely in the demo version TrueCafe. The options are protected with the unlocking code in the registered version.


Use the Background option to specify either a picture or web page to be displayed on the TrueCafe Client background when the terminal screen is locked, e.g:

C:\temp\picture1.jpg (local path on the terminal computer) (don't forget to specify http://)

Display session info

A terminal is unlocked when a customer enters his name/password or a cyber cafe operator starts a customer session remotely. When the terminal is unlocked, the session information window appears. A customer can top-up his balance using a ticket, change his password, order a snack/drink or stop the session.

Select pricing while logging in

When a customer is logging in, the "Service package" list might appear. This depends on pricing configuration and happens if a customer doesn't have a default pricing package and there are more than one "Public" pricing packages. Please read the Pricing topic for more information.

Printing confirmation

Order drinks/snacks

Customers can order goods, drinks, etc. from computers where they sit. They select an item in the list of services you configure in pricing.

You can disable the "Order" button in TrueCafe options.

End session (log off)

A customer can press the "Log Off" button to end his session and lock the terminal. The terminal is locked as well when a cyber cafe operator remotely ends the customer session in TrueCafe Administrator.

2. Clear Internet Explorer Temporary Internet Files and History.

3. Log off a session when a customer make Windows log off or shutdown.

4. Log off a session when a screensaver starts.

Specify script command lines in the options
