You have to tick the DGT board box every time you start Fritz and want to play with the DGT e-Board. The RabbitPlugin screen can be closed once the board is connected. You can also use it as a second control window to verify if the moves are processed correctly by the Fritz program.

Important: Fritz may show some instability problems when you play games over the internet which are shorter than 15 minutes per player. The interface may get frozen after some moves. Because you also physically have to move your opponents piece in your time it is for technical reasons not recommended to play quick games on the internet with the DGT e-Board.
