Start Server in Background
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
I just spent an hour trying to figure out why I could not get my client/server connections working. After consulting Tim, I realized that the problem was I was not using a shell to launch the server in the background, and the client was waiting for the process to finish.
Now, I've read in the Wiki that the server launch had to return and that I would need to use a shell service to do that, but, dang it, it's just not intuitive and I forgot.
It would be much better if something like QProcess was used so that the client could start connecting to the server before the program exits.
