  1. LoggerNet for Linux should run on most distributions with base distributions of Red Hat or Debian.

  2. Follow these steps:

    1. On the Windows computer, open the LoggerNet Setup screen.
    2. In the Backup menu, select the Manual Backup option to create a backup of the network.
    3. On the same or different Windows computer, use LoggerNet Remote software to connect the Setup screen to the LoggerNet for Linux server (File | Select Server).
    4. Restore the network backup (Backup | Restore Network).
    5. Review the restored settings in the Setup screen. Some settings (such as COM ports, modems, data file paths, etc.) may need to be adjusted.
  3. Yes. LoggerNet for Linux (LNLinux) allows the LoggerNet server to be run on a Linux computer. The LoggerNet server collects and stores the data, while setup and management of the network are easily handled from a Windows computer running LoggerNet Remote or, rather tediously, using Cora Command on the Linux computer.
