The click on Test. You will see a dialog asking you to confirm the fingerprint of the certificate of the other end. You should have received the fingerprint information from whomever setup BitFling.

You should then get a success message which includes the version number of the remote end. If you get an error message you will need to track down the problem. You may need who's ever is running BitFling to look in its log tab.

You can then tick the Enable box in the settings dialog. Go into the com port browser and you will see the ports available via BitFling. They are listed after the Inoperable Ports.
