Learning AcornPipe on PDF:

 Flash video files, as well as PDF files help you learn AcornPipe Software techniques. We use zipped files to protect the contents from picking up viruses out there in cyberspace.
Acorn Pipe Systems PDF files online: Click on the "Get Adobe Acrobat Reader" Icon at the bottom of this page, to visit the Adobe Website, where you can download a free copy of Acrobat Reader.  

Click on the PDF filename to open or to download various chapters of the AcornPipe Manual. These are pretty large files, and I would recommend that you right click on the link, then select  "Save Target As" to download the PDF file to your computer. Viewing these files from your computer will be more efficient than viewing them online.

NEW: Our customers have asked to have all of the Standard Details in a printable format.
We have created a PDF file of all of the details.

Adding the IP address of your Sentinel Key Device to the servername.txt file

This helps to make sure that your IP address is read to find the sentinel. Sometimes when you have a wireless air card, or other wireless connection, the program will try to search the internet for the key device. This file's content will make sure the program looks for the key device on your terminal only. On a network where two people are using two different keys, this file will make sure your terminal is reading the correct IP address to
find the correct sentinel key port.
