other handy things to know :

Do NOT run versions below 0.7.6.3, as they contain a vulnerability. Mind that after 8.2 versions, the INI files were adjusted ! This means by deafult 8.2 regions or older versions won't connect properly!
There is also an "optional"folder with ini configurations that drastically limit console spew, and fine tunes some other settings. (You can copy those and overwrite the existing files in /BIN) if you desire to use them. When 8.4 is released, (2016) all older versions will go obsolete, as there will be a code merge with donated Avination code, which is incompatible with older versions. For news on that release, check this topic or news.osgrid.org Use version 0.9.x as of 2017.

If you are the owner of the awesome NPC paramour danceball by Aine Coaimhe, the permissions for it can be set in the config-include folder, in the Ossl_enable INI file to be exact. If you don't have one of those danceballs, run to wright plaza or hop to the refugee grid to pick one up. It's without doubt the best Danceball in the metaverse. On the optional folder mentioned above is a pre configured one.

Vivox registration to request voice for your parcel can be applied for by submitting the form. Follow the instructions per email. (To edit your vivox credentials in opensim.ini).

If you run into a NAT loopback isssue, and your viewer is on the same machine as the server / regions, you can try the workaround posted here Mind that it is a workaround, and other machines in your network will not be able to connect ! Just you, on the machine with both the viewer, simulator, with this loopback installed, and outside visitors will be able to visit. Not your brother in the room next to you. This fix has also been tested and confirmed working over wireless.

If these tutorials were of any use to you, and you'd like to "give back", please consider a donation to the OSgrid. I really just like to help on a personal note, and do not want payments. The real FREEdom OSG offers is all i care for. And Donating to the grid helps everyone in it, including yourself. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do !
