The color of the connection-icon is "red"
as long as touchAble doesn't find any server,
it changes to "white" when servers are found.

The dialog shows all servers touchAble can connect to.
In our example there are two servers available.
For each server the dialog shows the name of the computer, the version of Live ,
the version of the server-software and the version of the installed scripts.

In our example, the server "Peters-MacBook-Pro" shows
Live 10.0.3, server-software version 412 and script-version 412 correctly installed.

The server "Olivers-MacBook-Pro" shows that Ableton Live is not running.
You have to start Live before you can connect to this server.

Click on the server-information for the server you want to connect to.
touchAble will connect to the chosen server.
