Magic RDS4 in another PC choosing existing connection
« on: October 09, 2021, 01:00:16 pm »
Hi there.

I need to acess to a existing RDS p164 with Magic RDS4 from another PC than the usual. How to choose the existing RDS encoder in the network with the same parameters?

Thank you

Jan

Create a virtual port in the permanently running Magic RDS 4.

In the existing connection, click on the virtual ports button and create a new one. Connect to this port from another PC. The port belongs to the original PC, but will behave like the encoder's port.

You may create as many virtual ports as you like.

Hi Jan.

Thank you for your help.
I tried to do it but when I acess P164 from the new pc, the settings are the default ones and not my personalized P164 settings. Maybe I've done something wrong.
Can you help?

Thank you

The virtual port is general purpose feature, which is attached directly to the RDS encoder, like a physical port. It is not an equivalent of remote desktop for the Windows application.

To synchronize the configuration, click on the Read button. Or use the Terminal.

Hi Jan.

I am not a computer expert and I am not able to access the P164 from another computer. Is there a way to do it step by step in the manual or can you explain it in detail here, please?

Thank you

The procedure is the same like when you established your first connection to the encoder. The only difference is that now you're connecting to the first PC's IP address rather than the encoder's IP address.

This all applies if the devices and the PCs are in the same local network. If some PC belongs to different network, it is preferable to engage an IT expert, as this situation cannot be covered by a simple step-by-step manual.
