Instructions:
Using the "File Transfer Protocol" you can move files between a WinCE panel (e.g. MP370) used as an FTP client and a PC used as an FTP server. This entry explains how to configure the FTP server on the PC and how to connect the WinCE panel to this server using the Pocket Internet Explorer. A requirement for this is that you have a correctly functioning Ethernet connection between the two devices created using a cross-over cable or a hub.
The Microsoft Pocket Internet Explorer, which can be optionally transferred to a Windows CE panel using ProSave, only supports downloads from the server. Uploads are not supported.

Configuring an Ethernet connection between the PC and the MP370 operator panel
Entry ID 13336639 contains instructions on how to establish a network connection between a PC and a WinCE panel.
The configuration described here involved using the IP address 192.168.0.1 for the PC and the IP address 192.168.0.10 for the panel with the subnet mask 255.255.255.0.

Transferring the Pocket Internet Explorer to the MP370 with ProSave (from V6.0)
So that the Pocket Internet Explorer is available on the operator panel, this option must be transferred to the operator panel with ProSave.
 
No. Procedure
1 Transferring the Pocket Internet Explorer
  • Start ProSave via "Start > Simatic > ProSave > ProSave".
  • Open the "General" tab and select the device type (e.g. "MP370 Touch") and the connection type "Ethernet"; then enter the panel's IP address.
  • Change over to the "Options" tab and check the connection by clicking the "Device status" button.
  • Transfer the Pocket Internet Explorer onto the device by moving the Pocket Internet Explorer option to the pane on the right using the arrow buttons.


Fig. 12

Connecting the panel to the FTP server
In order to establish the connection to the FTP server, you require a folder or file in the FTP directory which is created in the FTP server - see Fig. 07.
 
No. Procedure
1 Starting the Pocket Internet Explorer
  • Start the Pocket Internet Explorer on the operator panel.
  • Enter the following syntax in the address line and click "ENTER" to confirm: ftp://192.168.0.1/ (ftp:// "IP address of the FTP server"/)
    The Pocket Internet Explorer connects to the FTP server.

    Note:
    In order to connect to the FTP server, a folder or file must be created in the home directory for the FTP server.
     
  • Open any file ("Test.txt" in the example) by clicking the link in the Pocket Internet Explorer.

    Note:
    The content of the text file, see Fig. 14, is shown in the Pocket Internet Explorer. Files which cannot be shown in the Pocket Internet Explorer are downloaded directly from the FTP server.


Fig. 13

2 "Opening the Save As dialog window
  • Click the "File" menu and select "Save As...".


Fig. 14

3 Saving a file
  • Select the relevant directory (e.g. "Storage Card2") and assign the file, which is being saved, a file name and extension (e.g. "Test.txt").
  • Click "OK" to save the file.
