Getting started with new AMC13 software:

1. Install SLC6 OS and Cactus tools on your computer. (Dan... is there good documentation for this I can point to?)

2. Check out AMC13 software package and build:

    $  svn co svn+ssh://svnuser@svn.cern.ch/reps/cactus/trunk/cactusupgrades/boards/amc13/software/amc13   
    $  cd amc13
    $  source uhalEnv.sh   # or possibly .csh
    $  make                # possibly needed twice first time

      (substitute your CERN user name for svnuser)

3. Create a connection file for your board. You need to know the IP addresses (two, for T1 and T2). By default they are:

    T1:  192.168.1.x    where x = 255-2*SN
    T2:  192.168.1.y    where y = 254-2*SN
SN is the serial number from the front of the module. There are other ways to set the IP addresses; let me know if you can't use the default ones.

There are a sample connection files:

        amc13/etc/amc13/connectionSN43.xml          (not using control hub)
        amc13/etc/amc13/connectionSN43_ch.xml       (using control hub)
Please copy the appropriate one and edit it to match your AMC13.

4. Run the AMC13Tool as follows:

    $ tools/bin/AMC13Tool2.exe -c amc13/etc/amc13/connectionSN43.xml
    Using AMC13 software ver:30304
    >list
    Connected AMC13s
    *0: SN:  43 T1v: 0209 T2v: 0021 cf: amc13/etc/amc13/connectionSN43.xml
    >

Assuming you get to this point and you get a display of firmware versions and serial number which make sense, you are in good shape!
