Thank you for all of the good information. I am in the process of reviewing all of this to see what might work.
To give a little more detail:
I have no issues using windows to create the configurations in PAC Manager or strategies in PAC Control. However, these controllers are used in systems that don’t typically have any windows PCs connected to them but do have Linux systems attached. Then I started to realize PAC Manager creates a single file (.otg) and PAC Control can have everything defined in a single file (.cdf) and so if there is a simple way to transfer this two single files to a location on the controller using Linux it would make it very easy for us to update files as necessary for units that are in the field (for when we make changes as we do on occasion).
Typing all of this made me think of one more question: Does the *.cdf file really have the whole strategy defined in it? Or maybe the correct way to ask: Is the *.cdf file the strategy?
I have a lot of reading to do and will let you know what I end up trying.
Thanks again for all the help,
