Operating Modes & Setup
Server & Client Protocols
MCR02 Ethernet Terminals can be used in either Client or Server. In client mode the terminal connect to a remote server that
it listening a TCP/UDP port. Server may accept multiple connections.
MCR02 Terminals can be used as Server. The terminal listens own port and can accept a connection request from outside. In
this case terminal’s IP number is to be static.
It depends on the application whether the terminal is in Client or Server mode.
TCP/IP Client Mode Operation

terminal needs to acquire an ip from a DHCP server on your network.
Configuration is made through and UDP protocol so it advisable to use a firewall free network. Most of the firewalls filter
For the first time setup you can use miFinder software. miFinder can discover all terminals on your network. After MCR02 is
up i.e ( after gained an IP from your network ) you can use miFinder. It is also advisable to turn off any firewall & antivirus
software before running miFinder. As stated before, firewalls on PC may prevent to discover the network.
miFinder Configuration Software
Using miFinder you can set various parameters related to terminals. Some parameters are specific to each terminal and some
parameters are global to all terminals. After all setup, your device is listed or discovered as given below.
If your terminal is not discovered, press Discover button again.
