VP Link Help
Help simulating inputs in Foxboro I/A with VPLink

I have been trying for several days to get the tags I have imported into vplink to connect to the Foxboro I/A interface *FoxView*. I have followed the instructions in detail to connect the two, but for some reason when I run VPLink the vpdr window shows a connection but only for a few minutes. It will build several lists with tags, but will not show any values for them. After a few minutes it dumps the lists and closes the connection. I feel like I am missing a simple step somewhere. Any help would be appreciated.

Please mail to support@capesoftware.com. It might be the some tags are not configured right.
