OVERVIEW & COMPATIBILITY
Thank you for your purchase of the Web Server option for the MAX® 5000XL.
Web Server is compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer® (IE) versions 6, 7, 8
and 9 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of IE 9).
With the Web Server option, Internet Explorer® is used to view a calibration
report, view the MAX® 5000XL’s LCD screen, save/load memory starts, and save
test results. As detailed in this manual, to access the instrument with Internet
Explorer®, type the IP address of the instrument (192.168.2.254 for example) into
the Internet Explorer® address field. Memory starts can be retrieved from one
instrument and saved to another. Test data is saved in a comma delimited
format, which can be read by Microsoft Excel® or a compatible spreadsheet
program.
NOTE: Test results data cannot be modified or deleted through the Web Server.
Data can only be deleted at the instrument.

This allows realtime remote
monitoring of the
instrument.
2.3. Memory Starts
Memory starts can be viewed by selecting MEMORY STARTS in the left sidebar.
Memory starts can be downloaded from the instrument or can be uploaded to the
instrument. Thus, memory starts can be retrieved from one instrument and
saved to another. Typically, set up one MAX® 5000XL with the desired memory
starts, transfer the memory starts to the PC, and then transfer the memory starts
from the PC to other instruments. Memory start data is saved in a commadelimited format, which can be read by Excel® or a compatible spreadsheet
program. Although memory starts can be edited in Excel®, it is not
recommended.

SET-UP WEB SERVER (ON THE INSTRUMENT)
The Web Server special feature is set-up at the factory or can be upgraded in the
field. Please contact AZI Customer Service at 800-528-7411 or 602-470-1414
for activation instructions. Once activated, follow the steps below. Make sure
the instrument is turned on and connected to an active Ethernet connection.
Ethernet Setup
To get to this menu from the main
screen, press
MENUSETUPETHERNET
SETUP.
This menu provides the necessary
controls to interface with a local area
network using the Web Server option
that you have purchased for the MAX®
5000XL. A PC can then access the
MAX® 5000XL from the intranet.
Generally, the MAX® 5000XL cannot
be viewed on the Internet because of
company firewalls, but it is possible
and requires a registered IP address.
NAME and PASSWORD
The NAME and PASSWORD can be used to
restrict access to the instrument over the
intranet. This window will be displayed from
the Internet Explorer® browser if there is a
password entered in the ETHERNET
SETUP screen above. If the password is left
blank, this login screen will not appear.
When the login screen appears in Internet
Explorer®, use the NAME and PASSWORD
entered in the ETHERNET SETUP screen
(shown above) to gain access to the
instrument.

MAX® 5000XL Web Server User’s Manual
OBTAIN IP ADDRESS
This can be set to Automatic, Manual, or Ethernet Off.
•
Automatic - Sets everything automatically. A DHCP server is required to
obtain the IP address. Because the IP address is not known until the
DHCP server assigns it, intranet users will have to be given the IP address
whenever the instrument powers up, which is undesirable. Manual mode
is typically used because the IP address is fixed. Automatic mode is
useful to see if the web server works, and then the user should switch to
manual mode.
•
Manual – Requires the manual entry of IP address, subnet mask, and
gateway. Consult with your Information Services (IS) department for the
correct settings.
WARNING: DO NOT SET THE IP ADDRESS TO THE SERVER OR
GATEWAY IP ADDRESS. Doing so can cause the network to crash.
•
Ethernet Off – Disables the Ethernet port.
Write down the IP address. This will be needed to connect to the instrument
through the PC, e.g. 196.168.2.254.
MAC ADDRESS
The MAC address is factory set and is unique to every Internet device. It
may be helpful to your IS department.
STATUS
This displays the Ethernet status. If everything is setup correctly, then the
status should turn to “Initialized” shortly after power up. Otherwise, an error
will be reported.
To save any changes made to the Ethernet Setup options, after making the
desired changes, press ESC and then follow the on-screen instructions to ESC
back to the Main Menu and then power the instrument off and back on.

SET-UP WEB SERVER (ON THE TARGET PC)
Open an Internet Explorer® web browser window from the PC.
Type the IP address written down in the previous step, e.g. 192.168.2.254, into
the address bar of the browser, and press ENTER or click the Go button.
NOTE: DO NOT ENTER ANY LEADING ZEROS.
This will bring you to
the Home page.
Note: If multiple
browsers attempt to
connect to the same
instrument at the
same time, “unable to
allocate packet”
errors will result.
