This is incorrect. The system is completely self-contained with its own webserver. My Red system is plugged directly into my router and does not have a computer connection at all. I access the web server via my computers' browser.
My Blue is connected through ethernet cable to router also. When I connect to the controller through its IP address and adjust some settings, I get lightning signal flashes on the front of controller panel. When I put computer to sleep or turn it off, the flashes stop. So I assumed that communication to Blitzortung servers had also stopped. So far my station has not sent many signals that were used; I need to focus on my antennas and location.

I would be happy if I did not need the computer on, John. Please tell me how.


Hi Peter,

Do you by chance have your PC and System Blue plugged into the same battery backup?  If so, is your PC connected to the Master Control outlet (APC in the U.S. is like this) and when you shut down your computer it turns off the entire battery backup? This could be the issue. If this isn't the issue, I'm not sure.
