I am sorry that I have to bother you to ask this question. My Rapid SCADA installation has been working very well for many months now, but my Linksys router stopped working on several occasions, so I replaced it with a D-Link router. The only things that do not work are Rapid SCADA and Powerconfig from Siemens. I stopped using the latter when I finally got Rapid SCADA to work.
The Sentron PAC3200 is still working, but no communication exists to my router.

Is the meter in the same local network as Rapid SCADA?June 4, 2020 at 3:14 pm #6887
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?June 4, 2020 at 4:47 pm #6888
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?June 4, 2020 at 10:16 pm #6889
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!

Thanks for the recipe.December 24, 2020 at 9:16 pm #7839
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.December 25, 2020 at 1:06 pm #7842
I wonder if it was caused by ccleaner or AVG. Likely the last one.January 8, 2021 at 7:46 pm #7954
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.January 9, 2021 at 8:09 am #7957
Most of Linux users install Rapid SCADA on Debian or Ubuntu. If you have no special Linux experience, Windows is easier. Windows 10 is preferred.January 11, 2021 at 6:16 pm #7973
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.January 12, 2021 at 2:14 pm #7985
Windows 8 has no future. To use with Rapid SCADA Windows 10 is better than 8.
but there is no “scada” folder in there
You copy the scada directory.January 13, 2021 at 1:30 pm #8009
The message was deleted for inappropriate vocabulary. Repeating the action will block the user.January 21, 2021 at 10:07 pm #8133
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.January 22, 2021 at 1:54 pm #8140
Do you need help at the moment?
