Command Window Doesn't enable

Postby AndrewB153 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:26 am

Hi

When trying to use the command window after clicking "Enable" I am unable to type anything in the "send" window. Does anyone know why this might be the case?

Regards

Hi Andrew,

Please check whether you are using port 7700 or 7701 in the following:
- the label next to enable button in dEX
- DTUsb page
- PROFILE setting (check this setting using DeTransfer).

Hi Andrew,

If you see port 7701, then you have to change PROFILE setting (via dEX) to match it.
From dEX Home, please go to "Configure the Logger" page and click on dataTaker model at the left configuration tree.
You will access dataTaker profile setting, go to Security tab to change Command Server port number to 7701.
Send the program to the logger then you can access dEX command interface.

Other option is finding the background program that use port 80 and switch it off temporarily.
Restart DTUsb and it will pick up port 80 (including subsequent port 7700).
In doing that you do not need to alter DT profile setting, in case you forgot it in the future. :D

Hi Rudy

The "Command server port" is already set at "7701".

Hi Rudy

As the logger was already set at "7701" I tried the second method which worked okay for a while but now the port has reverted to "7701" and I cannot get it to switch to "7700". Have you any more ideas?

Hi Andrew,

Please change the command port vnumber ia dEX.
From dEX Home go to Configure the Logger the click on logger model (left side the very top).
You will see logger internal setting, go to Security to access command port number.

Hi Rudy

Thank you for your response. I think know what is happening, port is being blocked by a Windows service linked to http activity. So when the DTusb program tries to find the logger it has to use port 81 and also switches to port 7701 for the command function. So far I haven't been able to identify which service is doing the blocking as the netstat command cannot identify it. I need to do some further investigations.

Assuming I can keep port 7700 open is it possible to send commands to the logger using a bespoke program written in Python?

Good eveving Andrew,

The dataTaker commad window is simple a terlnet session.
Sending plain text command is all the logger needs.

Cheers

Hi Roger

Thank you for your reply.

So, if I want to stop the logger all I need to do is send "h" via the TC/IP connection?
