To debug issues on the client side, the first place to look will be the Reincubate Relay application logs. These can be found by going through the Reincubate Relay system tray icon, then under MaintenanceOpen log file.

This will open the application logs in a console. To share the actual log file on macOS, click the “Reveal” button in the upper left of the console window.

This will open a Finder window with the log file highlighted.
