Hi, I looked for solutions before post.

I'm Learning how watchnet works using the watchnet guide. I'm stuck with the "Configured watchout production computers" setting into the "Subsystem" section.

Goal: 

  • Use the production to drive the project using at the same time watchnet to control some tasks and sliders.

Setup:

  • 1 production + watchnet (Acer Laptop) 
  • 1 display (watchPax 4) 
  • WO version 6.4.1 both
  • WN version 1.4

I programmed a simple WO project with 3 Tasks and a WN to control one of these tasks. Everything works fine.
When I try to use the production and the WN at the same time the production takes full controll.
I tried to setup the production computer into the WN "Configured watchout production computers" setting, but it doesn't find any production adress. Forcing it manually an error popup when I try to push it Online.


I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

Hi,
Somewhere I read that you can use one dongle for both.
Maybe this is what I'm doing wrong.

I will test it with two dongles!
They can be both WO dongles, right? Or do I need a wo dongle + wn dongle?

Thank you,
J

If prod sw and WN runs on the same PC, you should be able to just put localhost into the address field. If they're on separate PCs, put the IP address of the WO prod PC in this field.

Sort of. For dongles purchased prior to June 2019 you can use one dongle for either. But not both at the same time.

The WATCHNET dongle must be a WATCHOUT dongle capable of supporting WATCHOUT 5 (use WATCHOUT Production License Manger to check supported versions). There are WATCHOUT dongles that only support v6 and those can not be used for WATCHNET.

Yes, the "WATCHOUT dongle actually acts as a general key for all software products which need a dongle, i.e. WATCHNET, WATCHMAKER, WATCHPOINT or the Dynamic Image Server.

Hi Jim, if you have a WO 6 only dongle, is it possible to add WO 5 licensing online to use with WN?

Quim

No, if you want version 5 added onto a version 6 only key you will need to send the key to Dataton for a physical swap i.e. version 5 cannot be added electronically. And there will be a minor fee for the administration of this.
