TECHNICAL NOTE 20220922
This tech note addresses critical changes to Microsoft's security protocols for authentication in Microsoft Exchange Online, a workaround offered by Microsoft, CygNet's response to this change in authentication for the General Notification Service (GNS) and Flow Measurement Service (FMS), and CygNet's release and patch plan for v9.7, v9.6, v9.5, and v9.4 for this issue.
We are pleased to announce the release of CygNet’s OPC UA Server 1.0, now offering another way to access CygNet data over the web. The OPC UA server communicates with a CygNet system to request and receive data via encrypted communication channels using our intermediary REST API application, CygNet Bridge API. The CygNet OPC UA Server 1.0 operates with CygNet v9.5 and CygNet Bridge v4.4.121.

Okay, maybe that only works for Jack Bauer. But, just like Jack, the new Enhanced Alarm Configuration (EAC) feature can help you avert catastrophe.
I am pleased to announce the release of CygNet 9.4! CygNet 9.4 has been in development since July 2019 and has a lot of new features that I am excited to bring to your CygNet deployments. Also, as a part of this release, we have transitioned to a new documentation delivery platform and have video content ready for you as well. Keep reading below for more details!
CygNet Bridge API provides web-based access to CygNet data. See Eric's post for an overview of the debut Bridge API release. With the latest version, we've added many new features. We've added the ability to retrieve and acknowledge alarms, send and retrieve device data group transactions, send commands, and more. But the new feature I want to tell you about today is two-factor authentication (TFA).
TFA allows you to add an extra layer of security to your CygNet Bridge API. Instead of only requiring the user's login credentials for authentication, TFA requires the user to additionally provide a temporary 6-digit code that is generated by an authenticator app on their phone. See this video demonstrating how it works for the user.
We are pleased to announce that CygNet version 9.3 has completed our development and quality assurance cycles and is now available for download from the Weatherford CygNet download site. Here you can review the following highlights to see what is included in version 9.3.
For a full list, please see the Release Notes included in the 9.3 product documentation included on the CD Image.
It is not always easy to know when something is wrong with your comms. There are many different points of failure and it can be hard to know where to start looking when an issue is suspected. Even when you have all the data in front of you, it can be a hassle to find the signal in the noise.
For a long time, we have wanted to create a place where we can share scripts, screens, tips and tricks with you – and where you can collaborate with other SCADA admins. GitHub is the perfect place to enable cooperative work; many people can benefit from a single submission.
Since launching the Canvas Training videos, we’ve already seen an uptick in inquiries regarding the application, I wanted to take a moment to make sure you all know about our reporting feedback mechanism…
