    Default Using PDF viewer with NG displays

    If you want to view PDFs on NG displays, you need to exit the PLC and start the PDF viewer application.
    Use EXITPLC_START_APPLICATION in the ifm_PDM360NG_special_V02000.lib

    To load a PDF file into the display, you need a SFTP client - WinSCP works well

    Login to the display, 192.168.82.247 (or the IP address you assigned)
    Username : root
    Password : pdm360ng

    Then you can FTP the file into the display. The default directory is
    /home/pdf


    IMPORTANT: The PLC program stops while you are in PDF viewer mode and re-starts once you exit out of it.

    Attached a sample program.
    PDFViewer.pro

    I have an embedded PDFVIEWER into my CR1201 PROGRAM and when im pressing the hard key button on the display its taking me to the PDF VIEWER exiting the PLC like mentioned above.
    my next step was to load the pdf file to the display so I set the client :SFTP then I entered the following
    IP: 192.168.82.247
    Username : root
    Password : pdm360ng
    Im getting an ERROR cant connect to server &received unexpected-end-of-file from SFTP server!
    any idea why im getting this message?
