Identify two open ports on the computer running AthleticSB. Usually any port between 10000 and 60000 will be open. We recommend these two:
- Results: 15600
- Running Time: 15700
Create two scoreboards in FinishLynx: one for results, and one for running time.

To enable logos, check Show Logos. If you are using Online Data, you don't need to do anything else.
If you are using a Local Connection, follow these instructions.
- Gather team logos on your scoreboard machine and use them on the scoreboard. Logos names must match the team names sent by FinishLynx. The image can be any web-safe image type (png, jpg, gif).
- For example, if the team name is "Madison HS", Madison HS.png, Madison HS.jpg, or Madison HS.gif will work.
- If you are using a Local Connection, select the directory that contains your logos.
Customize the spacing, color, and amount of your result rows.
Team Name Display allows you to place your team names below or on the same link as athlete names.
Column Spacing defines the width of the columns in the scoreboard. By default, the place field is 10% of the screen, the name field takes up 65% of the screen, and the time field takes up 25% of the screen. In most cases, this is fine. But with very big or very small layouts, you may need to adjust
Make sure Number of Result Lines matches the paging setting in FinishLynx.
Check Show Splits to show cumulative splits or lap splits depending on your Split Type.
Check Show Laps to Go to show the number of laps to go for each athlete.
Style overrides will take precedence over base settings, useful for filling out empty space on boards.
Adjust the colors for entry and result places.
