ATTENTION
The Honeywell FTE Adapter network Identification may appear as “unidentified network", for
systems in a workgroup with Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Standard and Microsoft
Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB (x64) nodes. This does not indicate a problem with the
network, but merely identifies that the node cannot establish an internet connection. Nodes
that are joined to a domain illustrate the domain name as the identified network.
With Experion, the FTE driver can be installed on a Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 2016
LTSB (x64) operating system. The FTE driver can be installed on Windows 7 32-bit operating
system only in Experion R400.x.
2.3 Overview of Honeywell FTE Mux-IM protocol driver
With ExperionR4XX, the configuration and behavior of Honeywell FTE on the network and
operating system has changed. The FTE is assigned one IP address for configuration. This reduces
the number of IP addresses required for each computer.
The FTE Mux-IM protocol driver is backward compatible with the previous Experion releases,
enabling visibility during migrations and upgrades. It implies that the interaction between the
nodes in the community is backward compatible. The previous versions of FTE continue to be
configured as per that version’s Installation and Service Guide.
2.4 Honeywell FTE Mux-IM Protocol Driver Properties interface
The Honeywell FTE Mux-IM Protocol Driver Properties interface provides operational status, driver
details, and configuration option for the FTE Mux intermediate protocol driver. The user interface
includes the following tabs.

2.4.2 Configure tab
The Configuration tab of the Honeywell FTE Mux-IM Protocol Driver Properties interface displays
the current virtual and physical adapters and the binding relationship between physical adapters
and the Honeywell FTE adapter. Both the adapters (virtual and physical) are displayed in a tree.
Properties for each adapter in the tree may be viewed by selecting the desired adapter either in the
tree or from a list box that lists all physical and Honeywell FTE adapters. Properties may be readonly
(example: MAC ID) or may be editable (example: Device Index).
Adapters that are not assigned (bound) to the Honeywell FTE adapters display information specific
to that physical adapter. Adapters are assigned to Honeywell FTE adapters by dragging and
dropping the physical adapter onto the Honeywell FTE adapter tree. Refer to the section Operating
and servicing FTE for detailed information on how to drag and drop the physical adapters onto the
Honeywell FTE adapters.

3.1 FTE installation scenarios


This section explains the items and checklists required to configure and install the different FTE
installation scenarios for Experion release 4xx.x. If the network type must be changed from the
prior Experion release 3xx , the network type and configuration must be reconfigured before the
start of migration to the Experion 4xx.x installation. Since the operating systems must be
completely reinstalled with either Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008, it is recommended to
change the network before migration to preserve the database and history. Refer to the FTE
Installation and Service Guide for R3xx network conversion scenarios.
The following table assumes that all nodes are already setup for FTE installation and the
hardware is configured to support FTE.
