The simplest and most reliable way to set the DS up for TCP/IP communication is using the Connection Wizard .
|•||Click Start > Programs > Tibbo > Connection Wizard:|
|•||Select Configure a Device Server for direct communications with an application on this PC. Click Next.|
|•||Click Select from the list.|
|•||Select the DS you would like to work with. If its IP address is invalid (it says so on the status bar), click Change IP.|
|•||Having made sure the IP of the device is correct, select the DS in the list, click Select to go back to the Wizard, and click Next.|
|•||Select Your application. Click Next.|
|•||Select TCP/IP transport protocol. Don't change the port, but remember it's 1001. You'll need this for later.|
|•||This is just a summary screen. Click Finish.|
Now we know the IP address and port for this device server, and have set it so it would listen for incoming TCP connections. On to the next phase:
We resume from where we left off on Setting Correct Parameters on Startup . To establish a TCP/IP connection with the Device Server, open the drop-down titled Connect using , and select TCP/IP (Winsock) :
Next, enter the IP address and the port number we got earlier from the DS Manager:
Now click OK .
The following screen should appear:
Congratulations! You're connected. Continue to Sending Commands To the Device Server or Using HyperTerminal to Test a Connection .
