Please just try rebooting the vxworks machine. I think there is a key on the card or create that will reset the device. These machines are "embeded" so they're designed to be hard reset, so don't worry, just restart the damn thing and see if that fixes the problem.
This is what I remember doing all the time when Rob was around, but with all the new computers, I forgot whether or not this was allowed for the slow computers.
Anyhow, I went down there and keyed the crate, but auxey isn't coming back. I'll give it a few more minutes and check again, but then I might go and power cycle it again. If that doesn't work, we may have a much bigger problem.
I went and keyed the crate again, and this time the computer came back. I burt restored to Nov 10th. ETMY is damping again.
