I find this one the easiest to use:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/tftputil/

Sometimes I have to try several times before I get it to work.
That program hasn't been updated in 12 years!

TFTPD32 / TFTPD64 are actively developed.

Re: problems changing config files

I don't know where you're referring to putting a host and port. The TFTPD program binds to your local PC IP address and defaults to using port 69. Don't need to change any of that. On the BCS, you specify the IP address of your PC (the IP that TFTPD is bound to). The BCS then sends a request to that...

Re: Can't update BCS 460 firmware

You need to use a TFTP program, not an FTP server.

TFTP is very different and used for updating many embedded systems.

Re: Current Software Version

They used to read 0, but that was confusing with those that actually need to display temperatures of 0 (mostly celcius users). It also makes it more obvious when a probe becomes disconnected.

If you have unused temperature inputs, you can disable them on the settings page so they don't display.

Your firmware version is listed on the "Settings" page of the BCS.

Re: Observer Password Allowing Changes

I don't recall ever hearing anyone say theirs didn't work as designed.

What is your firmware version?

Re: Ladder logic not working as expected

With ladder logic, controlling outputs or processes also works in the inverse of what is defined. e.g. if you're forcing the proc on when the output is on, then they are also forced off when output is off. I find process triggers like this are better handled in a state change trigger where you can s...

Re: BCS Not Connecting Issue

You'll need to push and hold the reset button for more than 10 seconds, then power cycle. After that, you'll need to restore from backup as it will be cleared.
