Postby razzaqi123 » Mon Jun 14, 2010 7:35 am

Dear all,

We have an Environment application running for quiet long time on a PC. This PC is directly connected through COM port. We can read temperature and having no problem. Remote office, we have a NOC. We need NOC staff to monitor the temperature at our Teleport after working hours. So, we installed the client on their PCs and configure for IP Network and we specified IP address of the PC which reading the temperature residing in the main site. Pico log is working but Environment is nor working. Can anyone assist to sort this issue ? Appreciate your assistant

Dear razzaqi123,

Thankyou for your inquiry with regard to you enviromon application.

Connect to a logger via a network
If you have an IP network of computers, you can connect loggers to one or more computers
and then access them remotely via the network. You can configure the loggers, monitor
current readings and download stored data via the network using EnviroMon.
To do this, you first install an agent program on each of the remote computers that will be
connected to loggers, then run EnviroMon on the local computer. There are currently agents
for the following operating systems:
Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000 and XP
Linux (Red Hat 5.2/6)
Before starting, you need to find out the network names of the computers that you wish to
connect to. If a computer is called fred, you can check that the local computer can talk to
them by typing in
ping fred
To run an agent program on Windows 95, open a DOS box and type in the following
command:
c:.exe -c2 [-i1051] [-b57600]
-c2 stands for COM 2. Change the number as appropriate. The parameters in brackets are
optional. The -i option sets the IP port number: use 1051 unless that clashes with some
other service. The -b option sets the baud rate.
The computer will start the program minimised. If you restore it, it displays a count of IP
messages received and of responses from the logger. You can use this to identify problems.
To run an agent program on a Windows 95 computer each time it starts up:
1. Click on Start
2. Select Settings
3. Select Taskbar
4. Select Start Menu programs
5. Select Add
6. Type in the command line c:.exe
7. Click on Next
8. Select the startup group

To switch EnviroMon to IP operation:
1. Go into the configuration menu (select File then Configuraton)
2. Select Equipment
3. Change the connection type to IP network
4. Set the IP port number to 1051
5. Enter the name of the computer that the logger is connected to
6. Click OK
You can now use the logger as if it were connected directly to your computer.

Please note that EnviroMon will request data continuously from the the logger: this may cause a lot of network traffic. To reduce this, set the RefreshDelay parameter in envimon.ini.

If you encounter any difficulties please do ont hesitate to contact me via support@picotech.com

Kindest regards,

Hi have you made sure that your firewall allows on both PCs allows the software to communicate? Also could you ping that IP address?
Kind regards
