Spectrum Remote Server Software Package
Using the Spectrum Remote Server it is possible to access the M2p/M2i/M3i/M4i/M4x card(s) installed in one PC (server) from another PC (client) via local area network (LAN), similar to using a digitizerNETBOX. The remote server option has to be activated by software license in any of the Spectrum cards in the remote system to operate it.
It is possible to use different operating systems on both server and client. For example the Remote Server is running on a Linux system and the client is accessing them from a Windows system.

Comparison with digitizerNETBOX
The Remote Server Package gives access to the internal server of the digitizerNETBOX and allows to set up similar systems with own system hardware.
This gives the chance to use any combination of Spectrum hardware in a PC system matching your exact needs and still using the comfortable remote LAN access to the Spectrum hardware that was first introduced with the digitizerNETBOX.
The following table shows the differences between the two solutions:

|Remote programming||Through Spectrum driver using the VISA address||Through Spectrum Driver using the VISA address|
|SBench 6 license||Professional license included in every digitizerNETBOX||Base license included in every card.
Professional license to be purchased separately
|Webserver||LXI conformant webserver included||None|
|Maintenance and updates||Through webserver||With local PC access only|
