    Dear colleagues,
    could you tell me may I realize the chem on Rapid SACADA: the Rapid SACADA is running on PC as Master RTU (or something else). The data are showed and collected on the PC and a mobile client connect to the PC via Internet for reading the information? If it possible how I can realize the process?

    Thank you for possible answers!

    Hello,
    This is a one of common scenarios. Do you have detailed questions?

    The main application is started on the PC. The PC works as master for Modbus network. Some time I need to connect to the application (for seeing the process status) via mobile (Android or IOS) application. So, I understand, I must to use an OPS server which delivers information for the Rapid SCADA application and something “WEB server”. Am I right?

    Rapid SCADA contains all the necessary features to implement this. You don’t need OPC server and other 3rd party software.

    Sounds good! But, how I can lunch a SCADA application on a mobile device under Android? I must repeat – the main controller is running on PC. What steps I must to do for seeing the information?

    I mean that the web application is properly tested on iOS and Android. It is possible to create a shortcuts on mobile desktop to run the app by one click (tap). Even if web server works on Windows, the web interface is accessible via LAN or Internet using different devices.

    To see the information, open up to date mobile browser and type http://your-address/scada
    Find out in the Internet how to create shortcuts.

    Mikhail,

    I can enter the adress of my server on another PC connected to the internet (http://xx.xx.xx.xx/scada) and it works. I can see the project running in the browser.

    However,

    When I enter the same adress in my android phone’s browser, it says the address cant be reached.

    Is there a certain android browser version we should have?

    OK,

    I had my server PC and my client PC connected on the same wifi network, thats why they could connect. My Android phone was on the cellular network’s internet, and thats why it said the address cant be reached.

    As soon as I connected my phone on the same wifi, I could connect to the server and view the webstation.

    I’m not an I.T wizzard, so can you explain how to get it working with my remote client being connected on a different network, far away?

    1. to do this, you must have an external static IP address for your server (router)
    2. Perform the necessary router settings to access your services from outside

    If this is not possible, use third-party services such as TeamViewer and others

    Remote access is already a task of IT sphere, not Scada as such.

    For example I have a dedicated static IP address. I connect to my router VPN client and see the entire internal network as if I was connected inside the network via Wi-Fi and moreover, the IP address on my phones to determine the third-party services becomes the same as when connecting VPN traffic begins to pass through my home router. Sometimes it is useful for sites that require access settings from certain IP addresses and will ignore you if the addresses are carrier-based.

    Is manjey73 said, VPN is the most preferable and safe way.
    Also you can use dynamic DNS service, such as https://www.noip.com/ In this case, you need to register the service, enter the credentials into your router, setup NAT on the router, and then connect like youraddress.ddns.net/scada
