Options Menu - Emulator Connection Menu Item

An emulator connection is the communications link between SourcePoint software and hardware (emulator) connected to a user's target system. You may choose from:TCP/IP (direct or network), USB or DCI.

The information below briefly describes each of the fields and buttons in the Emulator Connection dialog box. Actual setup depends on a number of variables, including your choice of connections and your network configuration. For this reason, a single set of connection instructions is insufficient, and multiple instructions placed one after the other can be confusing. For information on setting up a specific type of connection, see the last portion of this topic.

Select Options|Emulator Connection from the menu bar. The Emulator Connection dialog box displays. It is used to view and modify emulator connections.
