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:

  • CodeMeter dongle and default.maw for go2MONITOR
  • go2MONITOR

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

Setup go2MONITOR Computer

  • Disable the firewall (can later be configured)
  • Install the go2MONITOR software
  • Open SystemConfiguration.xml
  • 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_OBJ_TYPE>8</FLD_OBJ_TYPE>
<FLD_OBJ_ID>$RECEIVER_1_ID$</FLD_OBJ_ID>
<FLD_IP_ADDRESS>185.2.4.22</FLD_IP_ADDRESS>
<FLD_IP_PORT>36940</FLD_IP_PORT>
<FLD_CREATE_ALL_RECEIVERS/>
<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)
  • Setup the receiver with the wideband receiver configuration tool
  • Open in the user directory the rcm.conf file.
  • Replace in key="AllowUDPStreaming"] the value with "0"
<add key="AllowUDPStreaming" value="0"/>
  • Restart go2MONITOR and check if you can control the receiver.
  • Close go2MONITOR
  • If behind a firewall or router open port 36940 for control and 36300-36302 for streaming
  • Remove the dongle from the RCM computer

Operating

  • Start RCM.exe on the RCM Computer (DOS window ), see picture.
  • Check if RCM works correct
  • Start go2MONITOR on the go2MONITOR Computer
  • Check if you can connect to the receivers you did setup on the RCM computer

Remarks:

  • The USB-dongle should be connected to the go2MONITOR if no license sharing is activated.
  • Be careful with higher band widths.
  • Make sure that the required ports (even after a computer restart) are open on all participating computers, routers, firewalls, etc.
