10.1 IMPACT - Fails to connect to Xilinx programming Cable from Linux OS to the CableServer application on Win-XP OS

Description

When I try to access the Xilinx programming Cable over Linux 64 bit using CableServer application over Windows 32-bit XP OS machine, the IMPACT freezes and the console gives the following message:

Release 10.1.02 - CableServer K.37 (nt)

I nm unable to connect IMPACT10.1.01i/10.1.02i to the Xilinx Platform USB cable via CableServer from Linux 64bit OS.

I am unable to connect IMPACT10.1.01i/10.1.02i to Xilinx Parallel-IV Programming cable via CableServer from Linux 64bit OS.

The above issue has seen on all Xilinx programming cables over CableServer ISE10.1.01i/10.1.02i, running on Linux OS. This issue is not affected on win-XP OS system.

Solution

This is a known issue in ISE 10.1 iMPACT CableServer. ISE 9.2i is not affected with this issue.

To work around this issue:

1. Use iMPACT 9.2.04i to access the remote programming cable via CableServer.

ISE 9.2i WebPACK - http://www.xilinx.com/webpack/classics/wpclassic/index.htm
(Xilinx Answer 10959) - ISE Install - Where can I find and download old service packs for ISE?

This issue will be resolved in iMPACT batch mode in ISE 10.1 Service Pack 3. IMPACT software GUI support for remote programming cable access via CableServer will be released in ISE 11.1.
