View Full Version : Uploading N 30 BY Project Builder

1) When I upload the N30
I receive Connection in Progress please wait
This repeats for about 40 minutes
In Project Builder / Edit Site
does the Site Manager Device and Copy Holder Device
have to use the exact name as the N 30 that I
am trying to Direct connect to.
The N30 in my database matches the name of the N30
How long can it take to upload an N 30 via a null modem cable.

I've seen an N30 take over an hour to load via a serial cable. That's why I use a serial connection as little as possible - long enough to determine the N30's name, and perhaps its IP address, then it's a crossover cable and Ethernet connection all the way. N30 loads then take less than 5 minutes.

If I wish to use a crossover cable
Then I have to establish it as an Ethernet connection type in Site Book?

Yep, that's absolutely right. You'll enjoy the huge speed advantage by ditching the serial connection for an Ethernet connection. I couldn't imagine how long it would take to browse a device in the Sitebook with a serial connection - with an Ethernet connection, a fully loaded N30 is usually browsed in about 30 seconds.

If you are waiting 40 minutes and see the same word, then you have a problem.
You should do a test by connecting to the N30 using the direct connection you made. This will ask you for a password, enter it and see if you can get in. When you are in, check the speed you are at. Using Project builder should not take this long.
And I agree with davem that the ethernet is the way to go.
