 +==== Realtime copying of data ====
 +
 +`vsib_send` will send .lba data files when they are "complete", ie the end of 1 1 minute file in normal setup.
 +
 +On the recorder run (for example):
 +
 +   vsib_send -online -H cetus -p 11111
 +   
 +On the receiving machine (cetus in the example above)
 +
 +   vsib_recv -p 11111
 +   
 +The port numbers must match and be allowed through filewall
 +   
 +==== Realtime spectra ====
 +
 +Create realtime spectra to be loaded onto the interactive webpage:
 +
 +   fauto_ipp -n 80000 -sp1 45000 -sp2 55000 -t 60s -online -noplot -dump -command "scp %s kaputar:atca.spec"
 +
 +Create realtime spectra in ".rdr" format and copy to the ATNF ftp area (using `vsib_send`):
 +
 +   fauto_ipp -n 4194304 -sp1 2516582 -sp2 2621440 -t 1s -online -dump -radar -noplot -lo 7159 -command "vsib_send -p 33333 -H cetus %s" 
 +
 +This requires a vsib_recv process running on "cetus", on port 33333:
 +
 +   vsib_recv -p 33333
