Virtual PCAN-Gateway Version History

2023-03-07 - Version 2.1.2

Bug fixes:

Download Setup

2022-12-07 - Version 2.1.1


  • Windows device connection sounds are now played when PCAN-LAN channels perform Plug-in/out events

Bug fixes:

  • The timestamp of incoming messages were synchronized with a start time of 0, so that they always seemed to be in the past. This prevented messages from being traced in tools like PCAN-View and PCAN-Explorer
  • The Virtual Gateway Configuration tool failed to show the status 'Handshake off' of routes with this configuration when retrieving information from scanned devices

2022-10-24 - Version 2.1.0


  • New native ARM64 version of the Virtual PCAN-Gateway


  • Additional Plug-in/Plug-out events of PCAN-LAN channels are now performed when the 'Active' setting of the CAN Channel associated with a route is changed

2022-08-31 - Version 2.0.4


  • Time interval accuracy between incoming messages was improved
  • Additional general code enhancements

Bug fixes:

  • The support link “Control Panel App” was updated

2021-12-14 - Version 2.0.3


  • General code enhancements

Bug fixes:

  • In some scenarios, when an energy event occurred (power off of PCAN-Gateway/FD devices, sleep/hibernation of host PC), the Virtual PCAN-Gateway service was stopping the communication indefinitely
  • In some scenarios, when an energy event occurred (power off of PCAN-Gateway/FD devices, sleep/hibernation of host PC), the CPU load was being raised up to 100% and a service restart was needed
  • The Device ID retrieved from a gateway device was being parsed as signed integer instead of as unsigned integer
  • Configuration Tool: It was not possible to parse PCAN-Gateway/FD INI files with version v2 when doing Join operations
  • Configuration Tool: The application was crashing when using the JSON interface to get routes information from PCAN-Gateway FD devices


  • Configuration Tool: Remote Virtual PCAN-Gateways are now ignored and not included in the list of results when scanning for PCAN-Gateway devices

2021-01-26 - Version 2.0.2

Bug fixes:

  • The “Join operation” in the Virtual PCAN-Gateway Configuration Tool was not working with INI files coming from PCAN Gateways FD devices
  • Changing the activation status of routes with direction device->PC on PCAN-Gateway devices erroneously caused the nominal bitrate on the PC side to be set to 0

2020-12-14 - Version 2.0.1

Bug fixes:

  • Typo in the user interface of the configuration tool corrected
  • The enabled/disabled commands of the popup menu for route activation, 'Switch ALL routes on' and 'Switch ALL routes off', showed wrong states
  • Fixed service crashes that occurred when connecting incoming routes more than once at the same time

2020-07-20 - Version 2.0.0


  • Routes can be now configured with any IP address. The strict relationship between defined routes and an explicit network adapter was removed
  • Virtual PCAN-Gateways (PC with PCAN-LAN driver) can now be found from other PCAN-Gateway devices, when performing a scan
  • The configuration tool can now scan for other devices of the Gateway family on a network
  • The configuration tool can now retrieve routing information of remote PCAN-Gateways using the JSON interface
  • It is now possible to perform a reset of CAN channels of PCAN-Gateway devices connected over PCAN-LAN (using PCAN software like PCAN-View, among others)
  • It is now possible to configure a Device-ID on PCAN-Gateway devices (a PCAN-Gateway with firmware 2.8.2 or greater is required)
  • The name of PCAN-Gateway devices connected to a Virtual PCAN-Gateway are now shown in the route list within the configuration tool, together with their IP addresses
  • Support for CAN FD communication added (a CAN FD capable PCAN-Gateway is required and PCAN-LAN driver version 4.2.1 or greater)
  • Multiple activation/deactivation/deletion of routes over the configuration tool is now possible
  • The amount of routes that can be registered using the configuration tool was increased to 64
  • General code enhancements

Bug fixes:

  • Routes were failing to reconnect after a WSAEINTR error
  • In some scenarios, invalid commands were being processed as valid ones, instead of being discarded
  • Internal conversions were not working well, when translating the MAC-ID and other values
  • When deleting routes, a background connection to the remote device was still being kept open
  • The footer of the configuration tool was not showing version information
  • The configuration tool was not showing the version of the Virtual PCAN-Gateway service within the info panel

2017-09-14 - Version 1.3.1


  • The status of the Gateway CAN channels is now forwarded to the PCAN-LAN driver (BUS PASSIVE/WARNING/etc.)
  • The configuration tool can now be used as command-line tool for some actions:
    • /reload: causes a reload of all configured routes. Same as clicking the Reload button under Device / Configuration
    • /routeson: turns all configured routes on. Same as context menu command 'Switch ALL Routes On' under Routing / Manage Routes
    • /routesoff: turns all configured routes off. Same as context menu command 'Switch ALL Routes Off' under Routing / Manage Routes
  • The use of the port 45321 when creating or editing routes within the configuration tool is now denied (marked as reserved)

Bug fixes:

  • Routes were unable to connect if a PCAN-Ethernet Gateway was idle while the PC was being started or rebooted. This caused the registration of an invalid IP address
  • Incoming routes (from device to PC) could not connect if they were initialized before the network (network adapter or LAN cable) was activated

2017-02-01 - Version 1.3.0


  • It is now possible to use different IP addresses on the same network card

Bug fixes:

  • VPOI-Service dependencies were adjusted to avoid race conditions with the Windows firewall at startup
  • Fixed inconsistencies concerning the font in the Virtual PCAN-Gateway Configuration user interface

2016-01-26 - Version 1.2.0


  • It is now possible to define up to 16 routes
  • Added a command in the Configuraton Tool (Device | Configuration) to force a reload of the routes (behavior is similar to restarting the service)
  • Information about the firmware version is now available
  • Bit rate and CAN Listen-only changes in a PCAN-Gateway device are now communicated to the service and forwarded to the driver (PCAN-Gateway software package 2.6.0 required)

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed access violation when doing the "Join routes" process in the configuration tool
  • Fixed access violation when invocating the context menu on the route list in the configuration tool, after deleting a route
  • Fixed access violation when a wrong focus on the "Manage Routes" list in the configuration tool was evaluated
  • The service excecutable crashed sometimes while finalizing

  • Minor improvements in the user interface of the Configuration Tool
  • General code optimizations

  • Problem that was causing abandoned routes to be shown was fixed
  • Problem that didn't let active routes to get connected was fixed
  • Problem solved that sometimes caused the service to crash at finalization time
  • The 8th defined route was lost after restarting the service. After that it was impossible to define 8 routes, even after deleting all of them

2015-07-01 - Version 1.0.1
