    Remote KEPServerEX

    The installation I did Kinex and KEPServerEX are in the same computer.

    Now I want to connect to a remote KEPServerEX.

    How can I connect Kinex to a remote KEPServerEX?

     

    Thanks

        Hey Murilo,

         

        The procedure is essentially exactly the same.  You'll navigate to the "KEPServerEX Monitoring" module, and click the plus icon to add a new server.  It will again generate the configuration for Kepware for you to copy and input into that instance of KEPServerEX.

         

        Some extra troubleshooting for you:

        1 - If the remote KEPServerEX instance can't connect to Kinex, ensure you can ping the machine that Kinex resides on

        2 - If you can't ping the hostname, try it again with the IP address of the Kinex host

        3 - Assuming one of those two works (if not, this means that they're not on the same network (which complicates things a ton more)), make sure that whichever port Kinex occupies on the host machine allows incoming connections.

         

        Let me know if you have any more questions,
