Issue Details

I am trying to stream data using Network Streams between my PC and my CompactRIO but the connection is not working. How can I troubleshoot this issue?



Follow these troubleshooting steps:
  1.  Make sure you have Labview Real-Time Module installed in your host Computer, otherwise you will not be able to install Network streams on your cRIO
  2. Check that the Network Stream support is installed in the cRIO,
If is not installed, install it from MAX
3. Check firewall settings
4. Check the timeout in the VIs that create the endpoints (Create Network Stream Writer for example). This timeout waits for the communication to be established during     configured amount of miliseconds. If the communicaiton is not established within the specified   miliseconds, they throw an error.
5. Try the Network Sream example shipped with LabVIEW (Simple Network Streams. lvproj
6. In case the issue is happening within an exe, check the URL nomenclature.
7. When running LabVIEW, choose to "Run as Administrator"
