On the opened console you should see 'Please enter "s" to start a server or "c" to start a client.' after a couple of seconds (more on slower computers). Stop the server again on the red square next to the console. Go to the top right where it says 'run', click the button and select 'Edit Configurations...' (see screenshot below). In the field 'VM options' fill in the parameters which are described above for the java.policy file. Hit 'Apply' and 'Ok'. Run the again - all set.
