Remote Access or Multi-User Networking

Remote Networking in SpecView allows another computer to see the data from the SpecView PC in real time.

Unlike remote control packages such as PCAnwhere, SpecView’s Remote Networking allows multiple remote stations simultaneously with no interference of screen or mouse actions between stations and is significantly faster in operation.

SpecView Local is the computer that has the connections to the instruments and also has the ‘dongle’ attached.  Remote User licenses are stored in this ‘dongle’.  There is no ‘dongle’ on the Remote computer(s). 

Install SpecView on as many Remote computers as you like.

The Local PC will allow as many simultaneous Remote users to connect as has been authorized in the ‘dongle’.

Example 1:

You wish to see the SpecView computer from the Manager’s Office, the Maintenance Room and the Maintenance Supervisor’s home.

Purchase a single Remote User License (order code /R1/).

On the Local, identify the Remote users, their access level and passwords.

Take your SpecView CD and install SpecView on the Remote computers.

Any of the Remote computers can connect to the local but only one at a time will be allowed.

If you wish to have 2 of the above users connected simultaneously, purchase two Remote User licenses (order code /R2/).

Example 2:

You have the Local computer connected to a large machine. You want one Remote computer for use as a 2nd operator panel on the machine, and be able to monitor the machine from Remote locations as in Example 1.  Since the 2nd operator panel will be continuously connected, you need to purchase at least two Remote User licenses (order code /R2/).
