    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.

    I think that the requested view doesn’t exist, but I think that I selected the correct folder and file in the interface table. So, what next?

    Some websites automatically reverse the order and some give you choices. The FP converter allows me to select Intel Byte Order and then put the bytes in reverse order. But my device sends in reverse order.
    However, that is all redundant now, as I have been able to adjust the tables to give me a decimal value directly in SCADA.

    View is opened but there is nothing to see.
    I checked the Rights table, and the drop down menu has nothing to click on for Interface Object.

    I already wrote that I don’t understand the Rights tab.
    I just tried to open SCADA administrator to take a snip of the window for Rights, and SCADA will not even open now.
    I will have to uninstall and reinstall.
    I wrote today about four errors I found in https://forum.rapidscada.org/?topic=connecting-devices-using-modbus-protocol
    This program became unusable.

    Today I am quite certain that my Rapid SCADA program is seriously compromised. Nothing works.
    Project PAC3200 has my real IP address in it as I put in, but it also has 127.0.0.1 in the server stats. https://ibb.co/RyfDBQv I didn’t put that in.
    The older project Modbus test now has info from the PAC3200 project that was created later. https://ibb.co/4p8b7Gz
    More errors https://ibb.co/RyfDBQv
    https://ibb.co/t3VQ1pN
    https://ibb.co/kD8g7fZ
    I guess that I can reinstall and start over again. I did get to where I wanted to with getting a reading every hour, but it missed every second hour and then crashed.
