This really isn't a fault with The Uniform Server, but rather with how Windows works. If you look at the properties for a web document (.html), you should see the name of some browser, like Firefox or IE.


When UniServer starts the servers, it also looks at the startup flag to see if it should also display the splash redirect page. It does this by executing a "start" command with the name and path of redirect.html (UniServer\home\admin\www\redirect.html). That is the file you copied above.

You can do the same at a command prompt. Just type (depending on the location of UniServer)

start c:\UniServer\home\admin\www\redirect.html

and your default browser should open up. If it doesn't, that's not because UniServer has done anything wrong, but rather the OS.


You can fix this by changing what program opens a .html file. This is done in the Properties page.
