This was an issue of TCP/IP not being employed for communications between computers, as we are running communications across the ports using REMCON instead of TCP/IP protocols.
I hope to have this resolved very soon...

Hi James,

Thanks for the notice. I missed your comment and I did not launch another server software in the SEM PC before starting raith program. So, I could solve the issue and the system is working very well without any problem.

I think if you go to user defaults on login it will fix the problem.

I will be on the system working with Arka M starting at 10 AM and will be able to take a look at settings...

Does it a common problem for all user or only my account?
Because I suspect that you performed any changes after last Thursday afternoon and it has not been reflected to my account.
I started SEM software first and I restarted both PC once. But I could not solve the problem.
I hesitate to initialize my account because you helped me to setup my file on last Thursday.
Please let me know if you have any idea for this issue.
