Re: Loss of Eumetcast signal via SR1 rx

Thank you all,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
yes I had tried the Telnet option from PuTTY, which came up with an error message "Network Error; connection refused"; and, having searched the oracle, the BIOS, (but the latter seems to offer no serial port enablement/disablement); along with several suggested means of reacquiring the "Ports" link in Device Manager - each to no avail. I am obviously loathe to use the reinstallation of Windows method, as I am not sure I would be able to manage installing a complete new Eumetcast setup with all the programme installations it would necessitate. I am developing a headache as it is!
The machine is a Lenoveo Y510P laptop with, as I mentioned, Win 7 Ult OS. It has run my Eumetcast system for several years without problem. It is deliberately not connected to the internet and is therefore never updated. 'Leave well alone' has always been my motto. But sadly, such are electronics, that even that does not always work!
I have just tried the opening of Telnet via your (David) and John's suggestions of Enstein entry of the IP address, and am at least into the SR1 configuration window, so thanks again on that score!
