Programming an Inaccessible DS

If this screen is shown then you have specified on the DS #2 step that the Device Server is not accessible from this network segment . Now you have to decide how you will setup this DS.


There are two choices:

Generate configuration script (left screenshot). The script file can later be fed into the Connection Wizard, possibly running on a different PC  (see finishing remote job). Choose this option if you cannot physically bring the DS to this PC for programming. Input the path and filename for the script file (left screenshot) and press Next
Configure the DS through the serial port (right screenshot). Choose this option if you can temporary bring the DS to this PC for programming. Connect the serial port of the DS to the unused COM port of your PC (with the WAS-1455 or similar cable), make sure the DS is powered up and press the setup button* (this will put the DS into the serial programming mode). Click Next to continue (the Wizard will read out current setting values of the DS and proceed to the next step).


LED_ser_progStatus LEDs of the DS are playing a serial programming mode pattern (shown on the left) when the serial port of the DS is in the serial programming mode (click  hereto see all available patterns).

* On EM100, EM120, EM200, EM203(A)- pull the MD line low for at least 100ms.
