Issue Details

I need my network and firewall to be very secure and certify that no HTTP services can be under cyber attack. Can I disable the web interface of my Ethernet cDAQ chassis? 

I want to put the IP address of my Ethernet cDAQ into any web browser and not have it display a web-page. 
 

Solution

No, the web interface cannot be disabled on Ethernet CompactDAQ chassis. The DAQmx driver uses HTTP services as part of the communication protocol to the device and MAX uses HTTP services for configuration, therefore the device would not be useful without the internal web server running.
