CAT Shuttle Local Configuration

CAT Shuttle Local Configuration will begin the first time that CAT Shuttle Local is started. During configuration you will choose how CAT Shuttle Local will acquire data. Upon completion, CAT Shuttle Local will enter normal start-up operations, connecting to Speche and beginning to listen for data using the selected usage mode. All CAT Shuttle Local Configuration settings will remain in effect until changed.
  1. Start CAT Shuttle Local

    Click on the CAT Shuttle Local icon to to start CAT Shuttle Local.



  2. Open a saved CAT Shuttle Local configuration file

    Choose Yes to open a saved CAT Shuttle Local configuration file.
    Choose No to configure CAT Shuttle Local.



  3. Splash window

    Click on the Configure... button to start CAT Shuttle Local Configuration.
    Click on the Cancel button to exit CAT Shuttle Local Configuration. CAT Shuttle Local Configuration will resume the next time CAT Shuttle Local is started.



  4. Select the Usage Mode

    CAT Shuttle Local can acquire data in four different ways: TCP Port, Remote Server, Serial Port, and Virtual Serial Port. Choose a Usage Mode that will work with the output options available to your software or device.

    CAT Software - Determine the output options available to the CAT software by reading the manual, viewing help, or contacting the vendor. Some older CAT systems can only output to a Serial / COM port, but most can also output to a remote server / encoder using an IP Address and TCP Port. If CAT Shuttle Local is installed on the same computer as the CAT software, the Usage Mode should be set to either TCP Server or Virtual Serial Port. If CAT Shuttle Local is installed on a separate computer, the Usage Mode should be set to either TCP Server or Serial Port (when using a multi-line block).

  5. Username and Password

    CAT Shuttle Local will use the entered Username and Password to connect to Speche and Remote Counsel events. Speche usernames and passwords are case-sensitive.
    Username and Password? - Don't have a Speche account? You weren't supplied credentials? Not to worry. Enter Username and Password (or anything). You still have time and options.
