Configuring the Phidget Network Server

There are two different ways to configure the Phidget Network Server:

  • via the Phidget Control Panel (for Windows and macOS users). This provides a simple way for you to make changes to the Phidget Network Server, however, not all settings are available.
  • modifying the Phidget Network Server configuration file directly.


Find the configuration file on your machine by referencing the following table:

Operating System Location File
Linux /etc/phidgets/ phidget22networkserver.pc
Windows C:/ProgramData/Phidgets phidget22networkserver.pc
macOS /Library/Preferences/Phidget22NetworkServer/ phidget22networkserver.pc

Now that you have the configuration file on hand, we will go through each setting and describe it.

Settings

phidget{
   enabled: true
}
phidget {
enabled enable the Phidget Server and provide access to Phidget channels over the network.


phidget{
    auth {
        password: 'temp123'
    }
}
auth {
password set a password for your Phidget Server.


phidget{
    pidfile: '/var/run/phidget22networkserver.pid'
}
phidget {
pidfile where the UNIX pid file is written
phidget{
    logging {
        level: info
	file: 'c:/tmp/networkserver.log'
	maxfiles: 4
        maxsize: 1048576
	network {
	    enabled: true
	    port: 5771
	}
	source {
	    phidget22net {
	        level: info
	    }
	    _phidget22usb {
	        level: info
	    }
	    _phidget22match {
	        level: error
	    }
	    _phidget22channel {
	        level: error
	    }
	    _phidget22bridge {
		level: error
	    }
	    _phidget22disp {
		level: error
	    }
        }
    }
}

The use of level throughout this section refers to log level. See the Phidget Control Panel logging section for more information.

logging {
file choose the log file location and name
maxfiles the maximum number of log files to keep before rotation deletes them.
maxsize the maximum file size of a log file before rotation.
network {
enabled enable network logging.
port tcp port that the server listens on
phidget{
    network {
        keepalive: 30000

	    name: 'Phidget22 Server'
	}
	resolveaddrs: false
    }
}
network {
keepalive the server is constantly sending keepalive packets to the client, if it doesn't get a response in the keepalive milliseconds, it will close the connection (0 turns off, so server won't send keep alive)
resolveaddrs if addresses should be resolved to names (affects performance)
ipv4 {
address the address to bind
port server port
datagram {
enabled if UDP for events is allowed
publish {
enabled publish your Phidget Network Server to mDNS
name the name that will be published (defaults to computer name).
