Dear Jens Ebert,

Thank you for your inquiry.
You can refer to the steps below to set up your working scheme:

Step 1: Set up IP setting on your CSW-H85N
- Connect CSW-H85N to your wireless network (as you already did)
- Connect CSW-H85N with ezManager to set up CSW-H85N's network setting.
In case you set a static IP address, make sure the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway are set properly.


Step 2: Connect CSW-H85N to your tracer via serial interface:
- Choose the right serial cable and connect CSW-H85N with your tracer.
- Set up parameters for serial connection on ezManager.
Make sure all the serial parameters (Serial type, baud rate, etc.) on your CSW-H85N are the same as your tracer.

FLOW: Tracer <--> Serial interface <--> CSW-H85N


Step 3: Connect CSW-H85N to your PC wirelessly via network:
Open your software on your PC that you want to use to connect with CSW-H85N and get the data.
From here, the configuration may be different based on how your software exchange data (via TCP/IP or serial).
So, please follow either case A or case B below.

- Case A: If the software can exchange data via TCP/IP, then you just need to set up the TCP/IP connection between your software and your CSW-H85N.
For example, if you set your software to work as a TCP server, then you need to set CSW-H85N to work as a TCP client.
In that case, on ezManager, you will need to set the Communication mode of CSW-H85N as TCP client, and Peer address is the IP address of your PC, etc.
FLOW: Tracer <--> Serial interface <--> CSW-H85N <--> TCP/IP interface <--> Your PC's software

- Case B: If the software can only exchange data via serial, then an additional step is needed.
You may need to install and use ezVSP, a free-of-charge software provided by Sollae Systems.
It works as an intermediate software to convert data between TCP/IP interface and (virtual) serial interface.
You can download and read more about ezVSP at https://www.eztcp.com/en/download/ezvsp.php
FLOW: Tracer <--> Serial interface <--> CSW-H85N <--> TCP/IP interface <--> ezVSP(installed on your PC) <--> (Virtual) Serial interface <--> Your PC's software


Always make sure that you write all the setting you set on ezManager to CSW-H85N.
For more information, you can refer to page 16 of ezManager manual https://www.eztcp.com/en/download/pds_files/an_ezmanager_en.pdf

Please feel free to contact us if you have any inquiry.

Thank you very much.
Best Regards,
