  • How to enable writing to the network drive (supported with V0.2.2.a above)
    So depending on the version of Windows you are using it is slightly different. Windows 10 has the ability to set up your system as a mobile hotspot, then just connect the M3 straight to it and access folders shared under the Windows file transfer protocol.

    If you're using Windows 7 then follow this guide to connect M3 to a system set up as a hotspot:
    -Open the Manage Wireless Networks window
    -Create an ad hoc network
    -Enter a name and passphrase for the network
    -Enable the “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection” if you want M3 to be able to use access the internet connection also.

    Next goto command prompt (with admin privileges!)
    Using netsh set up the network using the SSID (NAME) and passphrase you used to set up the adhoc network:
    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid="<NAME>" key="<passphrase>"

    Then you need to broadcast the network by typing:

    netsh wlan start hostednetwork

    Then connect M3 to this network and you should be able to find any shared folders and access them directly using smb://IPADDRESS/folder. Host IP address is static using this method so path can be fixed into the networkSettings.yml

    Hope that makes sense (and hopefully I got it right!) It works like a charm for us, after the scan has processed it drops it straight into a shared folder on our Windows system.

    Cheers. Yes the quotes were causing the issue, looking at some of the other yml files I realised they may not be necessary.

    I managed to take full advantage of this feature for our application where access to a network is not always available. By setting up a virtual wifi connection on the Windows laptop we use for image processing, I was able to connect the tablet directly to it and access shared drive space directly. This essentially gives the Bellus camera direct 'wireless' connectivity to a Windows system which is great.

    Also if network access fails it appears to hang on 'Processing completed' is there an exception caught for a failed save ?

    This is great, thanks guys - but I can't help but feel the example password should have been 'wubba lubbadubdub'

    Will there be any future support for sftp upload?
