About this task

In order to manage the communication drivers and the license file, the NIEx9 Driver Manager uses FTP connectivity. The FTP server is present in the NIE29, NIE39, and NIE49, but it is not present in the NIE59 at Release 5.2 or older models.

To enable the FTP server on an NIE59 with Release 5.2 or older, use the Release 5.2 or older to initiate the remote desktop connection. The remote desktop capability has been turned off to enhance security, but you can use the NCT tool to connect. If the first remote desktop connection fails, a second attempt completes the connection.


  1. Browse your local computer to locate the NIEx9 Driver Manager installation folder.
