In AWS Client, select
In the Address Book window, select New.
From the Type list, select Client Socket or Server Socket.
In Common, set the following:
- Type an alphanumeric string that uniquely identifies the connection that you create in the address book.
- Station id
- If you have only one weather station in the network, you can leave the field blank. If you have multiple weather stations in the same network, and you are going to access them over the same connection, type an alphanumeric string that uniquely identifies the station for which you are creating an address book entry.
- Command wait timeout (ms)
- Type a value in milliseconds that specifies how long AWS Client waits for the QML data logger to respond when AWS Client sends a request over the connection. The value should be at least 20000 ms (20 s).
- If the request, for instance, a log file download, succeeds within the timeout, a success message is displayed. If the request fails, a failure message is displayed instead, and you can try again at a later time.
- Factors such as the current load on the QML data logger, delays in the connection, and the response length affect whether or not the timeout expires during a request.
In Client Socket or Server Socket, set the following:
- IP addr./DNS name
- (Client socket only) Type the destination IP address or DNS name.
- Port (Client Socket)
- Type the port to be used. The port must match the port set for incoming connections in the interface configuration in the QML data logger.
- Local Port (Server Socket)
- Type the number of the port that AWS Client listens to for incoming data from the weather station.
- Select if Telnet escape sequences for binary file transfer is supported. Leave this option enabled if you do not have a good reason to disable it.
