Sounds like you may be connected, but haven't uploaded or downloaded progra
mming yet, and DLS is just sitting there waiting for you to do something.  
Caution: "upload" and "download" are backwards in their terminology from ev
erything else in the computing world.  I wish I could get rid of the global
 download button.

Does it disconnect if you leave it alone for about 10 minutes?

Also, which panel are you trying to connect to and which version of DLS?

Fairly difficult to tell without more info or, better yet, some screenshots
.

 line i have no problem. I am downloding the panel great.

I haven't worked with the 1404 panel, as I simply don't see the point of us
ing one instead of an 1832 or 1616, but I assume it would work the same way
.

I assume by DLS v1.2 that you mean DLS5 v1.2.  I've worked with DLS2002 for
 many years, which prompts you to go to the keypad and start a download con
nection.  DLS5, however, just sits there and expects you to know this alrea
dy.  (This would be the point where a lurker from DSC should be reading thi
s and start working on changing this in the next update of DLS5.)

So when you get to that point where it's just sitting there and you expect  
it to do something, go to the keypad, enter installers programming, and sta
rt the download connection from there.  The 1404 may be different, but in t
he 1832 it's in section 499.

*8, installer code, 499, installer code, 499.  The keypad will give a few e
xtra beeps and the DLS software will continue to connect and you can go fro
m there.

I didn't knew that (499 section) I am new in DSC. Yes the software is DLS5  
v1.2
I'll try on the bench in an hour an i'll let you know if it is the same wit
h 1832. 1616 and 1832 also i made the dl via MD12. Its the first time i dec
ide to local dl with pclink...

Re: DLS PCLINK CONNECTION
Unfortunatelly nothing happens... 499 isnt valid address for pc 1404
Someone told me to disconnect and wait for 3' and then reconect again pc link cable from panel while in comm session and then it will start communicate. I did it but again th sane pitty...

Time to look through the manual then... or get a real DSC panel.

And I doubt disconnecting the cable is going to be helpful at all.
