Re: Connection to 1100 dropped

Hi Bryan,

The log file doesn't provide any information why the "connection" started to time out. I put "connection" in quotes because when APCC doesn't establish a single long lasting TCP connection, but a new TCP connection every request to the mount.

So, this could have been a hardware error or a resource issue in your computer's TCP stack. You might try connecting via UDP instead as it does not need to create a new connection every command request.

Best regards,

Subject: [ap-gto] Connection to 1100 dropped



After running for almost three hours without incident, the connection from APCC to the 1100 dropped. Was
able to reconnect manually in APCC, Park, and re-start. Still lost some images.




The logfile is in Dropbox at




https://www.dropbox.com/s/n2w86yt7gn309uv/APCC-2017-11-18-185622.txt?dl=0




The drop is shortly after step 0359029 at time 21:51:06.242





This has happened before, intermittently. That suggests an erratic connection (cable, port ?) somewhere.




I use TCP LAN to connect APCC to my PC.




Any insight is appreciated.
