News CNCnetPDM About us Support  


Clicking on button ‘Connect’ in section ‘Service’ enables you to connect CNCnetControl to a CNCnetPDM program or service on a remote or the local PC. A new dialog window opens:

CNCnetControl select server / instance

FIG 1:  Connect to an instance of CNCnetPDM on a remote server

You can enter the DNS-Hostname or IP-Address of a remote PC (1) under ‘Enter the Servers Name’. If you do not enter anything CNCnetControl assumes that you try to connect to CNCnetPDM on the local PC.

Under ‘Enter an instance for the service’ you can enter an instance of the service (2) if you are working with instances of CNCnetPDM, see chapter ‘WORKING WITH INSTANCES’ for details. If you enter nothing CNCnetControl assumes that you do not work with an instance. TOP

Note: This dialog also automatically opens if you open CNCnetControl on your PC without CNCnetPDM running on the local PC.

After clicking on OK CNCnetControl tries to connect to the specified CNCnetPDM program or service. If successful the title bar of CNCnetControl changes according to the information entered. If the specified PC or service cannot be reached you see a dialog with an error message.

If you connect to an instance or service of CNCnetPDM CNCnetControl also automatically creates a shortcut in the program folder. The shortcut is named ‘CNCnetControl REMOTEHOST INSTANCE’ or ‘CNCnetControl INSTANCE’ if no host was entered or ‘CNCnetControl REMOTEHOST’ if no instance was entered. Clicking the shortcut automatically connects to the specified instance of CNCnetPDM on your local or a remote PC. TOP
