2.2.6 Server Software Set Up
When the installation of the Server has been completed, you will see the Server icon in the program group ‘Voltech Software’. Double-click with the left mouse button on the Server icon to start the program.
Before you can use the Server, the PC communication channels must be assigned for each tester connected.
When the Server is executed for the first time, the following dialogue will be displayed:
A check box 'Do not display this dialogue at Startup' exists to prevent it from being displayed each time the Server application is launched. When this option is activated, this dialogue box can be accessed via the ‘Setup’, ‘Communications...’ menu.
To assign a particular AT Series Tester to a COM Port:
- Select the communication port to which your tester is connected from the COM PORT selection box.
- Click on the ADD button to append your connection to the current connection list.
- To remove a current connection select it from the list and then click on theREMOVE button.
You must have at least one AT Series Tester connection to use the program transfer or real time results functions of the Server application.
The final stage of setting up the server involves specifying the file location paths.
The directory setup dialogue will prompt you with the current directory. Change these settings if you wish to nominate your own program and results storage directories.
The setting of storage path directories may be altered at any time. The directory setup dialogue may be found under the SETUP section of the menu bar.
If you change the factory default settings, remember that the Server will only look in the directories specified for test programs or results.
