Can one computer be configured to do both Niagara R2 and G3 serial tunneling?

Issue

Can one computer be configured to do both Niagara R2 and G3 serial tunneling?

Product Line

TAC I/A Series

Environment

  • Computer
  • Niagara R2 serial
  • Niagara G3 serial

Cause

Running Niagara R2 and G3 simultaneously on one COM port cause issues.

Resolution

Yes. The Niagara R2 and G3 serial tunnel client programs install separate services in Windows. They can run simultaneously as long as they are not using the same COM port. If this is not possible, then start and use only one service at a time.
