DeviceMaster DM/PRO/RTS/Serial Hub Device Properties - NS-Link for Windows

You can use the following procedure to configure the DeviceMaster device properties. Optionally, you can refer to the DeviceMaster NS-Link Device Driver User Guide, or use the Comtrol Drivers Management Console help system for detailed information.

  1. If you have not done so, configure the Network Connection Mode for the DeviceMaster using the appropriate method for your environment.

  2. Highlight the DeviceMaster device name that you want to configure.

  3. If desired, change the User-Friendly Device Name.

  4. Optionally, set a different Keep Alive Timeout period. You can set the amount of time in seconds that this DeviceMaster waits until it closes this connection and frees all the ports associated with it.

    This value may be set to less than 5 seconds, however the DeviceMaster may not operate at any value less than 5. A recommended value to begin experimentation with is 10.

  5. Optionally, set the TCP Timeout Multiplier value.

    This value should not be modified unless the network connection to the DeviceMaster is very slow, such as, if a satellite uplink connection is involved. It is recommended that a value over 3 never be used.

  6. Optionally, click a different Scan Rate (ms).

  7. Optionally, click Verbose Event Log if you want to log additional DeviceMaster information into the event log.

  8. After making your changes, click Apply.

  9. If necessary, configure advanced COM port properties.

  10. If necessary, configure any of the DeviceMaster ports as sockets.
