    I guess not; as you have already refused to help me run Rapid SCADA on Linux Mint.
    My communication problems happened by Windows updates, and it took me 13 days to get it figured out. The system restore feature is awesome when it works. I just need to remember to close all running programs first to reduce errors.

    You are right, Windows 8.1 sucks. So do all Windows renditions. The non communication problem that I had from Jan. 7 until today was caused by a Windows update. I used system restore today to make it all better.
    So, router is fine.

    I can see that Linux is a tad harder, but I had Windows 10 for free when it first came out, and after reading reviews, decided to go back to 8.1.
    Your Linux install instructions leave me stymied at the first step.
    Installation of Rapid SCADA on Linux
    ————————————

    1. Copy all the files of Rapid SCADA Mono from the scada folder to /opt/scada

    2. Copy the scripts from the daemons folder to /etc/init.d

    3. Grant full access to the following folders of the Webstation application:

    sudo chmod -R ugo+rwx /opt/scada/ScadaWeb/config
    sudo chmod -R ugo+rwx /opt/scada/ScadaWeb/log
    sudo chmod -R ugo+rwx /opt/scada/ScadaWeb/storage

    I can copy and paste files; however, I can find the folder /opt/ in the file system, but there is no “scada” folder in there.

    Now I have the same non-communication problem after updating Libre Office yesterday. I decided to get AVG uninstalled. After many re-boots, I am still not able to communicate.
    I am running Rapid SCADA on Windows 8.1, and I wonder if that OS is my problem. Can I run Rapid SCADA on Linuxmint 20? Is there a good chance that it will work better than Winblows 8.1?
    It has started up by itself in the past, but I don’t hold any hope this time.

    I wish to add further information on this non communication issue that I seem to have occasionally. Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 23, 2020, I ran ccleaner to get rid of some crap. I also allowed AVG free to be installed and run. This caused Rapid SCADA to stop communicating with the PAC3200 meter. I couldn’t get it to communicate including powerconfig from Siemens.
    I woke up this morning with the idea to do a re-boot of the entire Winblows OS, did that and started Rapid SCADA again, and it worked!
    This is to remind me to do this in the future when it stops working.
    Thank you.

    Yes, I did reboots of all devices including the PAC3200. Then yesterday I played a round of golf. So today I will write to Siemens.

    I did that before I wrote to you. Powerconfig from Siemens is a free app that used to work, but now also doesn’t connect.
    Perhaps I should write to Siemens about this.

    Thanks, I increased the period.

    Sorry, but I got help from Siemens, and changed the IP address of the PAC3200 meter so that it would be in the range of the DHCP of my router that has the third number group a “0” instead of a “1”.
    Then I had to get Rapid SCADA to communicate with that address. It wasn’t easy, but it’s done!

    I tried to get the router to open the DHCP address for the PAC3200, but it is not in the same local network. My PC and router are in 192.168.0 and my PAC3200 meter is at 192.168.1.
    However, it was working before with the old router.
    Is there a way to make it work?

    Yes, all is the same as when I first got Rapid SCADA to work for me. Just a new router. I believe the router is blocking, so should I open a port for the meter in the router software?

    This is confusing. I don’t see any “change notes” anywhere.
    Do I need to update when I am very happy with the setup that I have.
    I have version 5.5.2 running. It even runs when I have to do a re-boot of windows 8.1 and I re-started my other programs yesterday, but forgot to click on Administrator in my Start menu. When I clicked on it today, the incandescent light bulb shows up in my Taskbar, and all of the data was being collected and displayed even though I thought they wouldn’t be.

    Okay, I have gotten the view in web browser to work. I added a formula to divide by 1000 and that shows up in web view.
    So for now all is well. Thanks
    I tried to view the documentation webpage today like I have many times before, but I got the server error message.

    The video on Table Editor already has a file and table in it when opened, so there is no teaching on how to create a table in the Interface node.
    And, I can no longer view the documentation page because of a server error.

    To Manjay73;
    I click on Interface and nothing happens except the + sign disappears. There is no right-click menu either that lists “Interface-Create a Table file (or Scheme)”.
    I’ll try to view the videos again to see how to do this.
    Already it is good enough even if I do nothing more, because I can stop monitoring the meter as SCADA records the readings in Archives.
