mcp startup/runready


Recommended Posts

HI Peter

I'm haveing a strange (to me at least) problem with my PM MCP program. If I launch it from anything other than the actual program icon, it will not fire up the MCP hardware (FDS G1) - if i use run ready, or a shortcut, the program runs, but the mcp hardware remains dead -

and

I've run PMfilecheck and I'm getting this report: it shows me five connections to PCSIX - is this normal? PCSIX runs the PM CDU and has the NetDir - I've been having problems here too, with the MCP hardware freezing up occasionally -

Thanks!

I think you are asking in the wrong place. I've really got no idea about FDS hardware nor PM's support of it. Have you emailed PM support? I would think that would be your best bet -- or FDS, possibly.

I've run PMfilecheck and I'm getting this report: it shows me five connections to PCSIX - is this normal?

I've no idea -- those aren't necessarily connections, but RE-connections -- i.e. as if the connection has dropped, or timed out, and re-connected. Log files from Enrico's programs aren't really any use to me -- all the information about wideFS will be in the WideClient and WideServer log files. That's what they are for!

I don't see how this is at all related to your MCP hardware problem above, though -- why are they mentioned in the same report?

These connection reports are well spaced in time:

69859 Connected to computer "PCSIX" running WideClient version 6.700 (skt=2260) TCP

.... then over 6 minutes later:

456109 Connected to computer "PCSIX" running WideClient version 6.700 (skt=1404) TCP

.... then after another 3 minutes or so:

647234 Connected to computer "PCSIX" running WideClient version 6.700 (skt=960) TCP

.... then another 35 minutes, just about:

2722265 Connected to computer "PCSIX" running WideClient version 6.700 (skt=960) TCP

.... and finally a gap of another 4 minutes:

2962672 Connected to computer "PCSIX" running WideClient version 6.700 (skt=960) TCP

Without any information from the WideFS logs I'm afraid all it looks like is either you closed and restarted that PC's wideclient 5 times, or some other problem is occurring causing timeouts or whatever. The logs should tell you.
