Sattline to AC800M Communications with MMS (2)
We would like to set up MMS communications between a Sattline Controller and an AC800M. The two control systems are on separate control networks using different IP address ranges. We also need to place a firewall between the controllers.
We set up the cisco firewall, multibroacasting is enabled, "tcp"/"ip" services are both tried alternatively, but still did not get the communication. We are able to ping SattLine controller from a PC in 800xA network, but could not ping 800xA controller from a PC in SattLine network(request time out).
- Anything more to do on 800xA side?
- Any special syntax in 800xA to be able to connect to SattLine controller via TCP/IP(in SattLine manual, it says that a prefix "CIT" should be added in front of remote system IP as "CIT172.16.29.1")?
I have done several projects with a communication between 800xA and SattLine without any prb (ok, some as mention here). As you mention you must add CIT before the IP-address, like CIT172.16.X.Y in SattLine I say (depending on MMS via tcp/IP or UDP).
And network mask must be calculated carefully.
We did find out in first project a difference between SattLine 2.3-22 and 2.2-24 using 10-addresses I remember. You didnt mentiuon the version of SattLine, can I expect 2.4-7 on Windows 7 SP1 or 2.3-41 on XP?
Not sure you can expect to see the other system via the tools built in but if you write the address I expect it to be seen in the tool, In SattLine - Config Window-Maintenance-Remote system.
One project with 10-address and 172-address (800xA/SattLine) and another project with 172.16 /172.16 (800xA/SattLine).
What we need in our project is a bridge between 800xA and SattLine as we migrated part of old SattLine to 800xA and as we have a lot of MMS via different programs there is a need for cross-communication 800´xA/SattLine.
Hope you find this useful else be back with more questions
And of cause there are some prerequistes like
- Running SattLine 2.3 on SLC 50/160
- Read the SattLine manual for I/O and Communication, chap 2, like this
"To identify a Control Network controller node, you only have to add a "CIT" prefix
before its IP address, for example CIT172.16.78.84. CIT is an abbreviation of
