The cabinets (Panels) can be accessed using any dumb terminal emulator on the MMI or MMI/Modem ports. I used to use ProcomPlus but you can also use Hyper Terminal which comes with Windows XP. You can also use a dumb terminal if you have one laying around. No special software needed. But if you want to buy software DatamateBase also works well for connecting to field cabinets.

The nice thing is most of the panels talk back to the main Insight system via IP, so I should be able to set him up with a couple telnet/hypertrm shortcuts to access them without being at the panel.
The guy I am dealing with Siemens was telling me Datamate Base is not worth the trouble.
As for the Hyperterminal, does anyone have a list of all the commands?

The definition of cruel joke is when you start work in BAS, and you run into your old T&B employer on the job.
With Datamante base you can view TEC subpoints, as well as talk to the field
