TCP/IP Driver
This section:
• Describes what the TCP/IP Driver does.
• Describes how to install, configure and run the TCP/IP Driver.
• Describes how to view its message monitor screen.
Note: you must have one, and only one, TCP/IP Driver running on your
entire system.

What the TCP/IP Driver does
The TCP/IP Driver passes messages between controllers in a Network
Hardware System and System Manager. In situations where there is LAN
wiring near the controllers and the host computer, connecting the
controllers to the network saves you having to connect them to the host
computer using an RS232 cable.
The controllers in a Network Hardware System are connected to the
network via a 4237 module (TCP/IP to RS232 converter). Each 4237
module must be assigned its own unique IP address as described below.
A single TCP/IP Driver can control communications to any number of
these modules which are connected to the network and have IP
addresses.

Installing a Network Hardware System
When you install a new system using 4237 TCP/IP modules, you need to
assign each module a fixed IP address. You should get the IP addresses
from your IT department.
To install a new system using 4237 TCP/IP modules and Granta 5.2:
1. Install Granta 5 from the DVD-ROM.
2. Go to the Utils\IPdevice\DeviceInstaller folder on the DVD-ROM,
extract the files from the DeviceInstaller36.zip file (or use the
extracted installation files which are also available in the folder), then
install the DeviceInstaller program and follow the instructions on the
screens.
The Device Installer User Guide (.pdf) is also included in the
Utils\IPdevice\DeviceInstaller folder.
3. When the DeviceInstaller is installed, you need to run it. Open the
Start menu, go to Programs, find the DeviceInstaller entry and run the
program.
4. Use the DeviceInstaller to assign a fixed IP address to each TCP/IP
module. Refer to the Device Installer User Guide (.pdf) if you need
help.
5. When each TCP/IP module has an IP address assigned to it, close the
DeviceInstaller program.
6. Run Granta 5 by double-clicking on the LaunchPad shortcut

on your desktop.
7. Log on as master / password, or use your own login name and
password.
8. Click on the Administrator tab, then click on the button for the
Hardware Systems program:

9. Click on the
button to display the Hardware System Configuration
records.
10. Click on the
button to add a new Hardware System.
11. Click on the Uses TCPIP Driver tab.
12. Enter the IP address of the TCP/IP module in the Remote IP Address
field.

13. Click in the IP Address Enabled check box so it is ticked.

14. Click on the
button to save the new “Network Hardware System”.
15. Repeat steps 10 to 14 for each TCP/IP module connected to your
network.
16. Return to LaunchPad, click on the Communications tab, then run the
TCP/IP Driver by clicking on the
button.
The Controllers connected to your TCP/IP modules should now be on
line.
• If one of your Network Hardware Systems is off line (the
Controllers are not communicating), the TCP/IP Driver icon in the
system tray at the bottom right of the Windows desktop is red.
• If all your Network Hardware Systems are on line and
communicating with the System Manager, the TCP/IP Driver icon
in the system tray is white.
Operation
Only one TCP/IP Driver must be installed on your system. When it is
running, its icon
appears in the system tray at the bottom right of the
Windows screen. A single-click on this icon displays the TCP/IP Driver
window with Monitor and Configure pages. If you ever want to close the
TCP/IP Driver, right-click on this icon and choose the Close TCP/IP
Driver command from the popup menu.

Using the TCP/IP Driver to monitor messages
passing between the host and the controllers
The TCP/IP Driver provides a message monitor which shows the raw
ASCII messages passing between the host and the controllers on all the
Network Hardware Systems which you have installed. This monitor is
provided for debugging purposes. Each message is prefixed with its IP
address so you know which Hardware System it is going to or coming
from.
1. Display the TCP/IP Driver window (if it is not already displayed, click
on the
icon in the system tray at the bottom right of the Windows
screen.
2. Click on the Monitor tab.
3. Make sure that the Enable Display check box is selected.
4. Select the Enable Log File check box if you want all the messages
displayed on the monitor stored in a text file on the computer. The file
is called tcpiplog.txt and is stored by default in the
c:\Program Files\Siemens\Granta\sysmgrsql\progs directory.
The text file shows the date and time at which each message was
passed and the message itself prefixed by the IP address of the 4237
module. Here is an example:

The direction of the message travel is indicated by the > and the <
characters.
Remember to disable the log file feature after debugging or the file will
quickly become very large.
