any idea how to extract & download the software?

There is not an EXE file in the JAR file. The JAR file is a java executable file. What you need to do is simply download the JAR file then you double click on it to run it. If you have java enabled on your computer it should automatically launch and run the app. You may have to "unblock" it like Sebyte said, but otherwise it should simply run without any other extraction or unzipping.

How do I specify what COM port to use in this app?

Unfortunately COM ports are not working in this app. It's purely wifi only right now. I have had intentions of adding COM support but have not been successful in getting it to work across all platforms easily. I think I will have to revisit this issue.

Ah gotcha. My wifi module is out of commission right now which is why I asked.

Thanks!

Hi Curt:

Any chance the COM port option will be supported.

Well, the whole idea of Java is to be cross platform.
If you want just windows, you can use the Client :)
The problem is that there is no java implementation for serial communication.
You have to use a work around that is OS specific, which makes is not trully cross-platform.
So, if there is ever an update for serial, there would have to be 3 packages (Windows, MacOSX, Linux).
That's what I had to do with the wifi utility.

Problem with Client is it requires admin rights to install. Want to monitor the tank in my office. PC's are locked solid. Reef Angel Status will run without admin rights.

Yes, I would like to get COM port option working at least for windows. Like Roberto said, there's no Java implementation for serial communication. I honestly have been focusing my time on the Android Status app and have not gotten back to the java app. I think I need to revisit it soon....after I get this release of the Android app out.
