Scorpion can send or receive commands and values to or from other applications over Internet Messenger. Thus Scorpion can be configured and managed from external systems. These can also be other Scorpion systems. An external system may also send commands, set values in or receive values from Scorpion.

The dialogue to set the connection for the Internet Messenger command protocol is shown below. The window will continuously show the commands and values transmitted between Scorpion and the external system.















  • Active - Enable / Disable tcp/ip communication
  • Send Command Response - default off - activated for debugging purposes


  • Remote - tcp/ip and port number - example "localhost:8701'
  • Listenport - listen port
  • Can Receive - checked if listen port is open


  • Show in message - displays incoming packets in event trace - default on
  • Show out messages - displays outgoing packets in event trace - default on
  • Write log to file - activate when you need to have a persistence trace - default off
    • Imlog.txt - the name of the log file
