TCP/IP Link Driver Configuration Guide

Client: Make Connection Make connection to server. Use this mode if attached devices are acting masters sending requests to  remote slaves devices.
Remote IP Address IP address of remote server to make connection to.
Remote Port Remote IP Port Number. The protocol will use its default value if left blank
Socket Type The protocol will use its default value if left blank
TCP Reliable connection-oriented service
UDP Connectionless datagram
Local Port Should be left at 0 to let the operating system automatically allocate the next unused local port number. When using a non zero local port, Please note that In NT and Windows 2000, TCP does not release a connection until the connection has remained closed for a period specified by the value of HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\ Parameters\TcpTimedWaitDelay. The default value is 240 seconds. Set this registry value to 30 seconds.
Mode Primary is selected if left blank.
Primary Always connected.
Hot Standby Always connected. Write will only be executed when all primary has failed.
Standby Connection will only be attempted when all primary or hot standby has failed.
Interface Network interface to use for this connection. Left blank to choose first available interface.
TTL Time To Live.
Server: Wait for Connection Wait for incoming connection from clients. Use this mode if attached devices are acting as slaves waiting for requests from remote masters.
Port Local Port number of Server. The protocol will use its default value if left blank
Heart Beat Timeout A connection is closed if it does not receive a heart beat from its partner within the Timeout period. This feature is disabled if Timeout is set to 0.
Heart Beat Port Number Receive heart beat at this port.  The remote device may transmit heart beat via TCP, UDP, subnet broadcast or multicast. The heart beat can be any message. It the Port Number is zero then any message from that device will be accepted as the heart beat.
Connection Timeout Maximum time to wait for a response to a ping and to set up a TCP/IP connection.
Login ID Send this string as the first message of this connection. e.g "12\r\n"
BER The encoding Bit Error Ratio. Set to 0 to disable Reed Solomon Forward Error Correction (with Pseudo-random symbol interleaving). The software will dynamically use RS(31,k) to RS(1023,k) depending on the BER and frame size. The second number is the measured BER of the transmitted data, the BER should be greater than this value. Each end must use the same BER.
Key 32 bit key for pseudo random symbol interleaving. Press New to create a new key.  Each end must use the same key.
Zip Data Compression ZIP software data compression.
None Do not use compression
Frame Compress at frame level only.
Streaming Streaming compression. Compression information are maintained across frame, this achieve much higher level of compression. The compression information are only reset on timeout.
Simulate BER Generate bit errors on transmitted data at this BER. Set to 0 for normal operation.
Errors Corrected (Tx/Rx) Number of error corrected at remote and local node. 
BER (Tx/Rx) Bit Error Ratio of remote and local node. 
Raw Bytes (Tx/Rx) Total number of bytes actually transmitted and received
Total Bytes (Tx/Rx) Total number of bytes transmitted and received before FEC or Compression
Compression Ratio  (Tx/Rx) Compression ratio of Transmit and Receive data

Note: Windows 95 users, please make sure Winsock 2.0 is installed.
