2. Configure a CIMPLICITY Terminal Server Port

To utilize a terminal server port instead of a standard serial port, you must map the logical port name configured within your CIMPLICITY project to an actual physical port on the terminal server.

  1. Select the Project Parameters section in the Workbench.

  2. Enter the value for the appropriate project parameter.



Note: CIMPLICITY will update the glb_parms.idt file with your entries.

At startup, the Marquee resident process will check the glb_parms.idt file for each Marquee port that is configured. If an entry exists, it will use the corresponding Terminal Server port for its communication.

You make an entry for each port to which a marquee is attached.

Important: When configuring ports in the Marquee Ports configuration window, a given marquee resident process can control at most one port on a terminal server.

In addition, a given port on a terminal server can be controlled by at most one Marquee process. Thus, when configuring ports in CIMPLICITY:

Be sure to specify a unique Service ID for each port to be controlled on the terminal server.

Make sure that two CIMPLICITY projects do not attempt to control the same terminal server port.
