Last Modified: March 28, 2019

Install SystemLink Client to establish a connection between your SystemLink server and a remote Windows target.

Before setting up a client, install SystemLink Server and a supported version of LabVIEW on the host machine.
  1. On your Windows target, launch NI Package Manager.
  2. Search for and install NI SystemLink Client.
  3. Launch NI SystemLink Client.
  4. Select Connect to a SystemLink server and specify the host name or IP address of the SystemLink server to which you want to connect.
  5. On your SystemLink server, launch and log in to NI SystemLink Web Application.
  6. Click Systems Manager»Pending Systems.
  7. Click Approve for the targets you want to connect to the server. The target is now a client connected to your SystemLink server. You can manage the client in NI SystemLink Web Application under Systems Manager»Managed Systems.

    The image below shows an example list of clients connected to a server.

  8. Optional: If you want to prevent actions such as installing software or restarting from executing on your client, select the client in Managed Systems and click More»Lock. These jobs will now be queued and will not execute until the system is unlocked. You can view all jobs, including those that are currently queued, under History.
