Issue Details

When I run my application on my cRIO in FPGA mode interactively, it logs data to a server through FTP. However, when it runs as startup, the server is empty. Why does this happen?

Solution

In FPGA mode the network interface needs some additional time to come online. This explains why it works interactively as the cRIO is already online, but not when starting up. Adding a 60 second wait function before starting the FTP connection solves the issue.
