EasyAccess 2.0 on PC

EasyAccess 2.0 is provided as a standalone program that can be installed on the PC. It can be used independent of the EasyBuilder software suite.

Download the software from Weintek’s website at:
https://www.weintek.com/globalw/Software/EasyAccess.aspx

Step-by-step for establishing EasyAccess 2.0 connection.

1. Launch EasyAccess 2.0.exe.
2. Enter Domain name, Domain user’s username and password, and then click [Login].
3. Once logged in, the program will list user’s HMIs and their statuses.
4. Click on connect button to establish connection to an online HMI. Once connected, the virtual IP address will be displayed. It is now possible to connect directly to the HMI by net services such as VNC, HMI Viewer, or FTP.
5. When finished, click on disconnect button to terminate the connection.

VNC Viewer
For models supporting VNC server, one may use VNC viewer to access the HMI. Please install a VNC Viewer of your choice, and provide its executable file (.exe) location to EasyAccess 2.0 application in [Settings] » [Path]. After you have successfully made the connection, should clicking on the VNC icon yields no response, launch VNC viewer separately and use the virtual IP address obtained in EasyAccess 2.0 as the destination IP address.

Please install a VNC Viewer of your choice: TightVNCRealVNC

HMI Viewer
Non-cMT models support using HMI Viewer to access HMI. Provide a suitable gui_e30.exe location to EasyAccess 2.0 application in [Settings] » [Path]. gui_e30.exe is contained within EasyAccess 2.0 and EasyBuilder Pro installation folder, where the latter always contains the most up-to-date version.

cMT Viewer
cMT models support using cMT Viewer to access HMI. cMT Viewer is contained within EasyAccess 2.0 and EasyBuilder Pro installation folder, where the latter always contains the most up-to-date version.

Installing adapters

During the first program run, the software will detect whether necessary adapters are present. If not, they will be installed automatically.

Main screen

Once successfully logged in, the main screen will show all HMIs for the user and their online statuses. HMIs that are online will have a connect button and a setting button. There is no limit on the number of HMIs that can be simultaneously connected from the program. However, once an HMI is connected by a user, it goes into “occupied” state and cannot be connected by another user before the existing connection has been terminated.
