Remote Control Labview 8.6

Hey everyone,


I would like to view and control a VI front panel from a computer that is connected on the local business intranet.  First, I used the web publishing tool on the computer on which the VI is located to publish the VI, then I hit connect.  Next, I went on another computer connected to the business intranet and selected "Connect to Remote Panel..." and connect with "Request Control" checked.  After I select "Connect," a message is returned saying "Server does not support Remote Panels."  Any suggestions?

Well, my first question is, have you enabled the web server service on the host computer?

Tools >> Options >> Web Server : Configuration


Then on the top, check the box that says "Enable Web Server"

Hi owen,


Have you searched for your error?  Often times this is the best way to get resolution to your issues.  I searched for "Server Does Not Support Remote Panels" and found this as the first result:

Hey Stephen,


Thanks for taking the time to respond.  I have resolved this issue, but have come across another in the process.  Thus far, I have been able to remotely control VI's through intranet from remote computers.  Ultimately, my goal is to be able to remotely control a VI which is acquiring data, without the use of the internet and without the use of a router.  Right now, as far as I know, this requires that I create an ad hoc WiFi network between the host and client computers; I have been successful up to this point.  I used the web publisher in LabVIEW on the host computer to publish, but when I try to load the page on the client computer, the status bar stays unfilled and reads 0.00% of 0 bytes.  I have tried waiting a long time for it to load.  Also, I have successfully published, viewed, and controlled the VI on separate computers with the intranet operational, the only problem is when I try to remotely control the VI through the ad hoc network.  I have searched the web and the NI Discussion Board thoroughly, but have found no solution.
