***PRETTY PLEASE**  can you add the link to launch the Comfort Server Manager application to the properties page of the UCM-ETH?

I keep forgetting where it is! - today it took me ages to realise it was under the Options... Settings... dialog box, and I only eventually found it by searching the forums...

On the properties page for the UCM under the Modules tree seems much more intuitive to me...

Many thanks.

Paul G.

However in the UCM Modules page, it is not known that the uCM is eth03, ETH02 or USB or even RS232 as that info is not determined by the scan so the software does not know if CS manager or DS manager is needed

What you do know from the "Settings" page though is whether you are running in USB/Serial/Network mode so first fix could be to show both managers (as you do in settings) if the mode is "Network".

Even though you don't scan for it,  could you do anything via the IP address as a link. You know what it is in "Settings" and you do in Comfort Server Manager too so could in a future CSM version you write back a flag to the Comfigurator file based on the IP Address match?  Then you could use this in Comfigurator to display the correct manager?

Thanks, yes, the first part of the issue is no different to how it is currently.... i.e. where it is now in options, settings, you only know if the mode is network or not, but do not know whether its ETH02 or ETH03, therefore there is a link to both tools... this would be good enough if that were reproduced exactly the same way on the UCM config page.
