Okuma DNC DT setup for Windows 7 computers


Feb 8, 2003
I have a 2005 Okuma MCV4020 with an OSP-E100M control and the DNC-DT option. Okuma has an instruction book on how to setup a Windows XP computer to communicate with the machine through Ethernet using an FTP site on the computer. I was able to set it up and it worked perfect. Eventually I upgraded to a Windows 7 computer. I asked our apps guy and he said it wasn't possible to use a Windows 7 computer to communicate with the machine. I figured how different could it be, it's communicating through an FTP site on the computer, so I gave it a try. I figured it out and it works just like the XP computer did. A few years passed since I setup the XP computer and I forgot most of what I did, so this time I wrote notes. I thought I'd share them in case anyone is in the same situation I was in.

Old thread but I have to say, thanks for the info!

Some extra help, for whomever stumbles upon this thread next:
On OSP-U10M, to open network settings on the machine:
Open "Parameters", type "PEDT" and press enter. Wait a second and the network settings will open.

If you're working with a used machine and you're trying to figure out the password in the network settings on the machine from the previous owner, you can download Wireshark on your PC to monitor the network traffic on whatever LAN connection the CNC connects to the computer through, and the FTP request from the CNC machine will show the unencrypted username and password on the machine when it tries to connect.
