go2MONITOR: How to run the RCM on a different computer

Sometimes a receiver connected by USB must be controlled over a longer distance. Then a second computer running the RCM is required.

Requierement:

  • USB Dongle prepared to work with a go2MONITOR AND an additional RCM computer.
  • default.maw for go2MONITOR
  • go2MONITOR version 3.2 or newer

go2MONITOR Computer: Computer running go2MONITOR
RCM Computer: Computer running RCM, connected to receiver

Setup go2MONITOR Computer

  • Disable firewall (can later be configured)
  • Install the go2MONITOR software
  • Open SystemConfiguration.xml (in the c:\Program Files (x86)\go2SIGNALS\go2MONITOR 3.1.0\scripts\ )
  • Replace in FLD_IP_ADDRESS the localhost (127.0.0.1)with the IP-address of the RCM Computer:
<MSG_OBJ_ADD>
  <FLD_NAME></FLD_NAME>
  <FLD_OBJ_TYPE>8</FLD_OBJ_TYPE>
  <FLD_OBJ_ID>$RECEIVER_1_ID$</FLD_OBJ_ID>
  <FLD_IP_ADDRESS>127.0.0.1</FLD_IP_ADDRESS>
  <FLD_IP_PORT>60000</FLD_IP_PORT>
  <FLD_CREATE_ALL_RECEIVERS></FLD_CREATE_ALL_RECEIVERS>
  <FLD_OPTIONAL></FLD_OPTIONAL>
</MSG_OBJ_ADD>
  • Install the dongle
  • Start go2MONITOR and if requested load the go2MONITOR Computer default.maw (will be saved in the user directory)
  • Close go2MONITOR

Setup RCM Computer

  • Disable firewall (can later be configured)
  • Install the go2MONITOR software (later you can remove unused files)
  • Install the dongle
  • Start go2MONITOR and if requested load the go2MONITOR Computer default.maw (will be saved in the user directory)
  • Close go2MONITOR
  • Setup rcm.conf, located in the user directory
  • Restart go2MONITOR and check if you can control the receiver.
  • Close go2MONITOR

Operating

  • Remove the dongle from the RC computer.
  • Start RCM.exe on the RCM Computer (DOS windows, c:\Program Files (x86)\go2SIGNALS\go2MONITOR x.x\32Bit\ ), see picture.
  • Check if RCM works correct

Remarks:

  • The USB-dongle should be connected to the go2MONITOR if no license sharing is activated.
  • Be careful with higher band widths.
  • Be sure that the required ports are open (also after a computer restart)
