Introduction

HyperTerminal is a tool to help determine Trackster and/or Controller problems

Useful for communication (Modem & TCP/IP) troubleshooting

Useful for troubleshooting weird errors that occur in Trackster

Quickly narrows down a problem to either a Trackster issue or a Controller issue


Installing hyperterminal
Installing HyperTerminal

  • Download from ftp://lib.aquatrac.com/Programs/HyperTerminal

  • Run the htpe5.exe installer and follow the onscreen instructions


Connect to a controller via modem
Connect to a Controller via Modem

  • Open HyperTerminal

  • Enter a Name (the Name is an arbitrary value)

  • In “Connect Using”, select the modem

  • Enter the phone number of the controller, then click OK


Connect to a controller via modem1
Connect to a Controller via Modem

  • Open HyperTerminal

  • Enter a Name (the Name is an arbitrary value)

  • In “Connect Using”, select the modem

  • Enter the phone number of the controller, then click OK

  • At the “!Modems connected” prompt, enter the admin Password

Connect to a Controller via Modem

  • What if the modem connection failed?


Connect to a controller via tcp ip wan
Connect to a Controller via TCP/IP (WAN)

  • Open HyperTerminal

  • Enter a Name (the Name is an arbitrary value)

  • In “Connect Using”, select “TCP/IP (Winsock)”

  • In the “Host address” box, enter the IP Address of the controller


Connect to a controller via tcp ip wan1
Connect to a Controller via TCP/IP (WAN)

  • Open HyperTerminal

  • Enter a Name (the Name is an arbitrary value)

  • In “Connect Using”, select “TCP/IP (Winsock)”

  • In the “Host address” box, enter the IP Address of the controller

  • In the “Port number” box, enter the “Telnet Port” of the controller


Connect to a controller via tcp ip wan2
Connect to a Controller via TCP/IP (WAN)

  • Open HyperTerminal

  • Enter a Name (the Name is an arbitrary value)

  • In “Connect Using”, select “TCP/IP (Winsock)”

  • In the “Host address” box, enter the IP Address of the controller

  • In the “Port number” box, enter the “Telnet Port” of the controller. Then click OK. On a successful connection, the Telnet screen will display “!Telnet:[IP Address]”


Connect to a controller via tcp ip wan3
Connect to a Controller via TCP/IP (WAN)

  • Open HyperTerminal

  • Enter a Name (the Name is an arbitrary value)

  • In “Connect Using”, select “TCP/IP (Winsock)”

  • In the “Host address” box, enter the IP Address of the controller

  • In the “Port number” box, enter the “Telnet Port” of the controller

  • At the “!Telnet:” prompt, enter the admin password

  • Command Prompt means that we are ready to send command to the controller (in this case we are doing Multiflex commands)

The prompt tells us that the Multiflex is ready to receive commands
