Getting Started Guide

Hi, I am trying to use this project, but I cannot get it to work in my code, or with the sample application provided (TestGSA).  I am getting the same null reference error in both applications.  If there is a getting started, requirements, configuration, etc. guide could somebody point me to it?  The error text below:

************** Exception Text **************
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

seems you haven't putthe GSA host settings in your web config! if you have the client has no access. i.e. make sure you can see the mini box from that machine!

already asked here
Click to view and if it doesn't work, let me know what your set-up / network is like.

the web.config did it!  The search appliance works great, now I just have to debug the results :-P
