How to use the microbrowser on a CE Web-panel if the PCD is connected over a serial connection to the CE Web-panel
The CE Web-panel does lose his own TCP/IP address if the CE Web-panel is not connected to a other TCP/IP device.
This happens if on the CE Web-panel the TCP/IP cable is disconnected.
In this case it's not possible to use the own TCP/IP address on the entry field of the microbrowser but you have to use the standart address 127.0.0.1
To use the microbrowser on a CE Web-panel to access a PCD with serial communication the following steps have to be performed:
- On the CE Web-panel start the Internet Explorer and define a new station on the Web-Connect page.
Define all station settings as station name, communication mode, station number and so on.
- Close the Internet Explorer
- Start the microbrowser
Write the IP address 127.0.0.1 on the field "Host or IP Address"
Write the station name, which you have defined before on the Web-connect page followed by "/page_name.htm" on the field "Path"
The CE Web-panel does lose his own TCP/IP address (defined on the "Saia PCD Web Panel Manager") if the CE Web-panel is not connected to a other TCP/IP device. This behaviour is related to CE Web-panel.
That means, that it's not possible to use the own TCP/IP address on the microbrowser entry filed, if the CE Web-panel is not connected to an other TCP/IP device.
