Default Lab machine xmd/debugger install?

Hi there,

I've been using EDK/ISE on my desktop machine to build a design, and
now want to download that design on using a spare machine in our test
lab (rather than just using dev boards on my desktop). ISE comes with a
"Lab PC" install CD with impact on it, which is good, but I need a sort
of EDK equivelent - my design uses program code held in the dev board's
SDRAM, and I've been using xmd/gdb frontend to download this part of
the design.

>From what I can see, there's not "lab install" equiv for EDK - does

this mean I need to get yet another license just to sit on the lab
machine that'll be used for downloading my designs? Or is there some
other solution?

Thanks in advance for any advice,

-- Michael

What might be of use to you is to remotely run your programming cable. A
relatively new facility (came in 7.1 I believe) it uses a utility
"cableserver" locally so that you can access the programming cable remotely.
I have only used this for programming platform flash remotely but I believe
that it's use can also be with chipscope and the other EDK tools.
"Cableserver" comes in the webpack version of tools so you don't need to
purchase a license for the lab machine if you don't need any other tools.

Will need to prod our sys-admin to get the lab machine put on the
network, but that certainly sounds like an option. Cheers for that,
that might be the solution we need, assuming EDK will play ball.
