What is the TuningGuide Software?
Juch-Tech Inc’s TuningGuide and ConfigCreator software programs are actively developed to make configuring LinkStar S2A modems, and pointing satellite antennas, an easier task. We have recently begun a public testing of the software, and welcome you to try it and respond with any comments and suggestions you may have to our e-mail.
Currently the software is only available for computers running the Windows operating system and with Java Runtime version 1.6 or higher installed.
Also available, is our ConfigCreator software, this allows modem configuration files to be created with an easy to use interface. This software is also only available for Windows computers, but requires the .Net framework version 2 or higher.
Download the software
Download the latest TuningGuide software (version 1.4) from here.
You can also download the ConfigCreator program here, use it to create modem configuration files to use with the TuningGuide software.
How to use the software
Here is a quick guide on the steps of the software, also included with the file in the form of text file “Readme.txt”:
1.) Install the TuningGuide software to your laptop or computer hard-drive by double clicking Install.exe on the installation CD or folder extracted from the ZIP archive. Follow the steps of the installation wizard.
2.) Start the software by running TuningGuide.exe from your start menu or desktop icon. Please ignore any warnings given on startup.
3.) For calculating satellite pointing:
a.) Click the Upload satellites button to load the list of satellites into the program (normally satellitesList.txt)
b.) Now at the bottom of the program, enter the Lattitude and Logitude for your sites
c.) Next choose your target satellite from the drop-down box and click the Calculate button
d.) Adjust your satellite to the measurements shown and click Next
4.) To connect to the modem:
a.) Enter the last 6 characters of the modems MAC address as well as the modems root password
b.) Click Ok and then change your IP address to the Computer IP before clicking Check Ip [Should differ from Modem IP by 1]
c.) After modem and IP are checked, click Next to continue
5.) Now click the Ping button and wait for the green clearance message “Ping ok”
6.) Click Connect to login to the modem as root and wait until it too reads green and says “Connected & logged as root”
7.) Clicking Next, a screen is presented where the modem can be reconfigured by:
a.) Click the Upload configuration file button and select the configuration file (eg: NSS7ModemConfig.txt)
b.) After uploading, click Apply configuration to transfer the settings to your modem
c.) A message will appear prompting you to wait 30 seconds before clicking Restore connection
d.) After waiting, click Restore connection and wait for the next message “Ping ok, connected and logged.” before clicking Next
8.) The program will now display the current and best ESNo achieved and whether the Rx is locked, begin adjusting the satellites pointing
9.) Finish adjustment when the program tells you the message “Target reached, please tighten bolts” by locking the pointing in place before clicking Next
10.) Now call the NOC to continue the commissioning process
