The SerialGhost Wi-Fi (SerialGhost Pro Wi-Fi) offers on-demand access via TCP/IP from any computer connected to the network. This feature is usually limited to the Local Area Network, unless your local network segment is visible globally. To access the logger remotely, launch KL Tools, select the proper device version, and navigate through the wizard to remote access. The Wi-Fi Control Center will be shown.

A remote device needs to be added first. This can be done by clicking the Add Device icon, and supplying the IP address, name (optional), and device password. The password must match the local 3-character combination defined in the devices CONFIG.TXT (K, B, S by default).

The IP address of the remote device can be obtained in a few ways:

  • from an E-mail report (see section E-mail reporting)• from the device configuration (if using static IP)• from the Access Point configuration (if using Auto-IP)

If the IP address is unknown, the Search Local Network option can be used. This feature will send a broadcast signal to all devices in the Local Area Network, to which remote loggers should respond. Make sure that no firewall blocks UDP communication, otherwise the procedure will fail.

Once a remote device is added, the log may be retrieved using the Download Log option.

If interested in other parts of the remote Keylogger log file than the most recent 50 kB, use the Download Log Chunk option. This will display a dialog, allowing downloading any part of the remote log file.

KL Tools offers a wide variety of options, available at a single mouse-click:

  • E-mail and WWW search• Encoding and layout conversion• Document searching• Document exporting• Communication with remote device• Multiple device handling

Using KL Tools you can communicate with multiple SerialGhosts, allowing creating entire networks of wireless data loggers. This solution is particularly recommended for monitoring several devices in a system with a large number of devices using serial buses, such as RS232.

Clock configurationIt is necessary to configure the built-in clock module for getting correct date and time-stamps. This task can be performed by KL Tools (recommended), or can be done manually.

To configure the internal clock using KL Tools, launch the application, select the device model, and choose to configure the device. The application will display a time and date configuration dialog. Make sure date and time stamping is enabled, and that the Set time and date checkbox is clicked. Select the desired time format, and move to the succeeding dialogs.

KL Tools will guide you through enabling flash drive mode, and placing the configuration file TIME.TXT on the internal flash disk.

The clock can also be configured manually, without using KL Tools. To do this, a text file named TIME.TXT should be prepared with the following format:


The fields should contain the current time and date. The field Format allows distinguishing between A.M., P.M., and 24-hour time (use the value AM, PM, or 24). After the file has been prepared, switch to flash drive mode and copy the file TIME.TXT to the root folder of the flash disk. The USB Key delivered with the device has to be used to switch to flash drive mode.

After copying the file, safely remove the flash drive. The new clock configuration will be loaded on next power-up.

The clock configuration file must be named TIME.TXT and must be placed in the root folder. Variable and value strings are case insensitive, however they must match the options listed below.

  • Year sets the clock year value. Valid range is from 2000 to 2099.• Month sets the clock month value. Valid range is from 1 (January) to 12 (December).• Day sets the clock day value. Valid range is from 1 to 31. If the specified day exceeds the maximum number of days in the specified month, the next valid day value will be chosen.• Hour sets the clock hour value. Valid range is from 1 to 12 for 12-hour time (A.M./P.M.), and 0 to 23 for 24-hour time.• Minute sets the clock minute value. Valid range is from 0 to 59.• Second sets the clock second value. Valid range is from 0 to 59.• Format sets the time format. Valid values are AM, PM, and 24. If AM is chosen, the 12- hour format is selected and the specified hour is treated as before noon. If PM is chosen, the 12-hour format is selected and the specified hour is treated as afternoon. If 24 is chosen, the 24-hour format is selected and the specified hour is treated as 24- hour format.

Sample TIME.TXT for 12-hour time:Year=2019Month=10Day=25Hour=5Minute=51Second=43Format=PM

Sample TIME.TXT for 24-hour time:Year=2019Month=10Day=25Hour=17Minute=51Second=43Format=24
