Issue Details

I have developed a VI that communicates with a Real-Time Target via Ethernet.
The VI is running in the computer and transfers files using FTP from the host computer to the Real-Time Target.
When I run my VI everything works fine. But when I deploy my VI as a standalone application, my computer doesn't communicate with the Real-Time Target.


Two possible solutions to the problem are:
  • Run the executable file as an administrator.
  • Deactivate the firewall or allow the application through it.
