Instructions for setup, using Java Runtime Environment 1.7 or Higher

1. Go to your computer's Control Panel. Open the Java Plug-in.

JAVA 1.7


Accessing units within your internal network

1. Usually when the computer and the unit are on an internal network, you will not use Proxy server access.
2. You should un-check the "Use Browser Settings" option on the "Proxy" tab

Accessing units to the internet

1. Often the web browser will use Proxy server access to the internet. In such cases, the default Java runtime settings on the "Proxy" tab should suffice. The default setting is the "Use Browser Settings" option.
2. If the default proxy setting doesn't work, then you may have a situation where the proxy settings of the web browser are incorrect.


If the web page of the iServer appears, then the HTTP Proxy is working fine.

If the data isn't updated on the iServer upon selecting the Read Sensor web page, there may be a problem with access through a winsock proxy server. In such cases your network administrator will need to provide the winsock proxy server and port #s. (If the administrator requires knowledge of the port # required on the iServer, the value is 2003).

These values should be entered into the Socks line on the "Proxy" tab (of the Java Plugin control panel) or into the "connections" tab on the View,Internet Options dialog and make sure that the Proxy tab shows that the "Use Browser Settings" option is not selected (i.e. when you specify proxy connections in the Java Plugin control panel.

Accessing units over Peer-to-Peer network

A simple peer-to-peer network is setup by disconnecting from the main network (as users will often do when trying to do initial setup of the iServer) and then connecting the iServer to another computer using a ethernet hub, an ethernet switch, or a Cross-over cable connection.

Often when using a peer-to-peer network, the Java plugin and the web browser (such as Internet Explorer) have internet connections configured to connect through proxy servers. In such case, you will need to simply assign the final IP address on this peer to peer network and then view the unit charts after connecting the unit into the regular network. Otherwise you can disable the Java plug-in's "Use Browser Settings" temporarily and then reconfigure the Java plug-in settings for regular network access after testing the unit chart access on your peer-to-peer network.

The "Use Browser Settings" should not be selected. And the HTTP and Socks proxy entries should be blank. Also, setup the internet browser so that proxy servers are disabled.
