Remote Control of AGWPE with Your Web Browser

George SV2AGW started to develop a web browser interface for AGWPE which lets you access AGWPE over a LAN or the internet. Work on this was left incomplete, but using your browser (Internet Explorer, Opera, or Chrome), you can:

  • change some AGWPE settings
  • see radio channel activity

Here's how you do it:

  • 1. First, make sure that you have an http folder (with files) in your main AGWPE folder. This should have been created when you installed AGWPE.

     
     
  • 2. Second, start AGWPE. Then call up the AGWPE menu and select Setup Interfaces. This brings up the Winsock and HTTP Interface Setup window.
    • Make sure the Enable Winsock TCP/IP Application Interface is checked.

    • Then click on the HTTP Interface tab (see picture below).

    • Checkmark Enable the HTTP Interface.

    • Note the port number. The default of 80 should be fine. You would only need to change it if some other server or program in your computer was using port 80 and that would be unusual (for example, port 80 is normally the default TCP port for web browsers).

       
    • Optional: Under Password, either leave the LOGIN and PASSWORD name defaults or enter new words of your choice. Use of a LOGIN name and PASSWORD are suggested in order to prevent others from changing your AGWPE settings.

    • Press the OK button to save the changes.

  • 3. Call up the AGWPE pop-up window again and this time select Launch IBrowser;or with AGWPE running, launch your Internet browser.

    • If you are working from a remote computer, in the browser's address bar enter the IP address of the computer running AGWPE, enter http://127.0.0.1:80 or http://localhost:80). Possible Problem:  127.0.0.1 is an IP address that refers to your own machine. But if you are on a network/connected to a router and your computer has been assigned a different IP address, you may need to enter that address, e.g. 192.168.0.xxx via the address window in your browser.

       
    • If everything is working correctly, you should now get a green textured "AGWPE web page" with login slots.

    If you kept the defaults on the HTTP Interface page, you do not need to enter a LOGIN or PASSWORD providing you are accessing the AGWPE from the same computer, i.e. not accessing the AGWPE machine over a network.
     

    • Your browser will then display a AGW Packet Engine Main Menu page

    If you click on the MONITOR option, you should soon see incoming lines of packet data scrolling across your browser! You can also call up a MHEARD LIST and even edit you AGWPE ports... but not all the menu choices are working (as of version 2003.308).

    Trouble Shooting:

    If you can't get your browser to display the AGWPE green web page:

    • Check your AGWPE folder. You need to have a "HTTP" folder in it and it should have some files in it -- those files come with the original AGWPE zip file.

        
    • Make sure you have the HTTP Interface activated on port 80 -- see #2 above.

        
    • Your firewall program (Windows Firewall, ZoneAlarm, etc.) may be blocking access to port 80. Temporarily turn off the program to test this. If everything then works, you will have to configure the program so it allows access to AGWPE's port 80.
