Issue Details

I connected my roboRIO by USB to my computer and I am connecting through the Web Interface (WIF) by using the IP address (the IP address for USB connection). How can I see my CAN port in the WIF?


In order to see the CAN port in the Web Interface, you will need to install the Cross The Roads software to both your computer and your roboRIO. To install in onto your computer, go to this link. Instructions to install the software to your roboRIO, please follow the instructions here.

As far as the USB port, unless you have something connected to it such as your camera, that port will not appear in the Web Interface.

Additional Information

If you plan on using a Talon SRX, Victor SPX, CANifier or Pigeon, you will need this install. This is also necessary for installing the web-based configuration in the roboRIO, which is important for setting device IDs for PDP and PCM.
