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.
Establishing a connection to a Windows-PC works just the same!

In the connection-dialog, problems that would hinder touchAble
to connect to a specific server are shown in RED in the information for that server.

The information "Control Surface not responding"
while Ableton Live is up and running may
indicate problems with your script-installation.
Please check and reinstall the scripts if necessary.
