Web Site Settings
The number of seconds that the map pages should wait before asking for an up-to-date list of aircraft from the server.

Show IATA airport codes
If ticked then the web site will display the 3-character IATA airport codes (e.g. LHR for Heathrow) instead of the 4-character ICAO airport codes (e.g. EGLL for Heathrow).
Web Site Customisation
Tells VRS whether there is a forward proxy or a reverse proxy between VRS and the Internet. This setting is used when detecting Internet clients and when redirecting requests that do not specify a page.
If you are unsure as to whether you are behind a forward or reverse proxy then you are probably not behind a proxy at all, in which case you should leave this set to Unknown.
If ticked then some of the files sent by the server will be compressed using gzip before they are sent to the browser. This greatly improves page load times, but at the expense of increased CPU and memory usage on the server.
Clearing this tick will marginally improve CPU usage on the server but will have a marked effect on page load times over slow connections. Do not clear this tick if you intend to put your server onto the Internet.
Enable CORS support
Ticking this box enables CORS support.
Allowed CORS domains
A semicolon-separated list of domains that are allowed to make CORS requests to the server. If you enable CORS support then you must supply this value.

- Create an account at the routes site.
- Enter the public address of your site in your route site account profile.
- Copy the public directory key from your route site's account profile into this field.

This screen lets you copy the settings from a browser's local storage and save them with the server's configuration. When a new browser visits the site the settings that you stored here will be copied to the browser's local storage, pre-setting all of the site's configuration options.
