Complete the following steps to enable and configure the LabVIEW Web Server for viewing and controlling front panels remotely. The Web server only can run while LabVIEW remains open on the host machine.

  1. Select Tools»Options to display the Options dialog box.
  2. Select the Web Server page from the Category list of the Options dialog box.
  3. Place a checkmark in the Enable Remote Panel Server checkbox in the Remote Panel Server section.

    The default Web Server configuration is suitable for most applications.
Note  (Linux) By default, LabVIEW uses port 8000 so the Web Server can run in accounts that do not have root access. If you have root access, you can change the port to 80. If you use any port other than 80, you must specify the port number in URLs that refer to the server, as shown in the following example:


  1. To control browser access to the front panels or control which VIs are visible on the Web, configure the Browser Access and Visible VIs sections of the Web Server page.
  2. Click the OK button to close the Options dialog box and save the changes.

    The Web Server is running.

Use the Web Server properties to enable and configure the Web Server programmatically. You also can enable and configure the Web Server in a built application.
