SocketServer is the default application that runs on the DeviceMaster
and is for use with the NS-Link device drivers and applications that support Winsock connections,
for telnet type connections, and for Serial Tunneling. You can use SocketServer to configure
DeviceMaster ports for TCP/IP socket access from the other hosts or for serial tunneling.
Technical Support recommends that you update to the latest version of
SocketServer before installing an NS-Link device driver or configuring socket ports.
You can use PortVision DX to check the SocketServer version
and if necessary, update SocketServer.
If you do not want to use PortVision DX to update SocketServer, you can use RedBoot. Refer to Uploading Firmware in the
RedBoot Procedures section of the DeviceMaster Installation and Configuration Guide.
Depending on the serial number of your DeviceMaster, you may need to use a
SocketServer version due to a hardware update. You can also determine the minimum SocketServer version
using the MAC address.
You can download and unzip the SocketServer help file
and open the ssvr_help.htm. This is the help system embedded in SocketServer.
You can review the firmware History file for the latest updates and enhancements.
