The NDT license is an add-on to current AcqKnowledge intallations running version 4.1 or higher. The NDT license unlocks Network Data Transfer functionality and adds the “Network Data Transfer Reference” to the Help menu.
Most of the settings for the network data transfer functionality are set by clients through control connections. Several settings for the AcqKnowledge server may be set directly in the AcqKnowledge “Network” Preferences included with NDT functionality and accessed from the Display menu (Windows) or from the AcqKnowledge menu (Mac OS X).
The NDT system is split into two separate types of connections:
- Data connections deliver data from AcqKnowledge to external applications during acquisitions.
- Control connections are made from external applications to AcqKnowledge to query application state and adjust data connections.
