Control Interface

TallyArbiter runs an HTTP server listening on port 4455. If this port is in use and cannot be opened, you will receive an error. To get to the web interface, open your browser to if you're on the same machine where you're running the software. If now, just replace with the IP of that machine.

If you're running the Desktop App, you get a window showing the GUI. However, the web interface is also available at the url described above.


In the configuration interface, the settings page is available at /settings: This page is restricted by a username and password. The default username is admin and the default password is 12345.

All the changes you make there are saved to a config.json file. This file should also be backed up frequently to prevent data loss when updating. It's path is different depending on the OS that you're running:

  • Windows: C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\TallyArbiter\config.json
  • MacOS: ~/Library/Preferences/TallyArbiter/config.json
  • Linux: ~/.local/share/TallyArbiter/config.json

You can also manually edit that file.

Make sure that TallyArbiter is closed while making changes, because otherwise they will be overwritten!

You can change the security of the settings and the producer page by adding or replacing the following section to your config.json file:

"username_settings": "admin",
"password_settings": "12345",
"username_producer": "producer",
"password_producer": "12345"
