  1. You definitely should use it If you are around Windows environment. The main purpose of Fitnesse itself is the Acceptance Testing. But you can use it for other automations (e.g. managing your AWS environment).
    You are right default port is 8080.

  2. If you get the error message “SLiM server died before a connection could be established” when running the acceptance tests, make sure you Unblock the slim.ps1 file
