Maybe the Pharos server password? Log into Pharos Administrator, click on System + System Settings and expand Security to find your EDI password.
there is no password set - does one need to be set for this to work?
All I do on the Omega side is put in the Pharos server name plus the EDI password, then click on Advanced settings and Save. Maybe you need to add the server IP in the Advanced settings area so it can find the server. Is this your first Omega?
It is. I've added the station into Pharos Admin and put all of the settings into networking that I know but still can't getting server refused
Sounds like your next step is to call Trac Systems. The Omegas are pretty bulletproof so it sounds like something on your Pharos server.
Forgive me - what is Trac Systems?
If this is a PS-200 ET (the newer model), there is firmware to address this. It, and its instructions, can be downloaded from https://private.filesanywhere.com/PHAROS/fs/v.aspx?v=8a6f628d5ca5ac77b1a6.
Depending on whether you are using an older PS200 unit or the newer PS200ET unit depends on how to proceed. The newer units have some updated firmware that address some quirks in the initial firmware release (rev 140) that may very well address what you are seeing. If you are running a PS200ET on firmware 1.1.0 rev 140, just ask Pharos for the rev 144 firmware or I can provide a link for you if needed.
Edit - Link to firmware copied from Scott's post above: https://private.filesanywhere.com/PHAROS/fs/v.aspx?v=8a6f628d5ca5ac77b1a6
On an old PS200 (not the newer PS200ET) I can connect successfully with a blank password in the EDI as well as a blank password in the Pharos Administrator / System / System Settings / Security / EDI Service Password field. If the password is incorrect, old units will indicate "site code incorrect" and the less older units will complain that "The password setting in pedi.ini is incorrect."
- Which firmware are you on?
- Are you getting anything else to go with the connection refused error?
- Are you using SSL or starting simple with an unsecured connection on port 80?
- Can you access the EDI server page -
- From the EDI server itself?
- From the same network segment and/or port that the Omega is on?
- See details on creating the URL below*
If you are using SSL, ultimately you will need to have the FQDN from the certificate in the "Server Name" field. If you do not have DNS servers set up in the network config section, then you can expect that the Omega will not be able to resolve the FQDN. This is where the "Server IP Address" setting comes into play as it functions like a host file entry so that you can enter whatever name you need or want in the "Server Name" field yet force it to go to the exact server you need by IP.
*To access the EDI service page via browser which can easily let you know if the issue is server side rather than related to the network and/or device, you will need to combine the path, prefix with http/https based on whether the SSL box is checked or not, and then add a forward slash followed by the value in the "Path" field as a suffix. You will see an ASP service page once it loads. See examples below.
SSL Enabled? Server Name Add Slash Static Path (as of 8.2?) Final URL for Browser Testing
