I work at a US federal laboratory and participate in research using an aircraft with several imaging radiometers (research grade cameras with band pass filters and other modifications) so that we can acquire synchronized images - mostly infrared. Our main research thrust is studying wildfires.

Currently I'm in a project to upgrade our equipment, computer, and system. Since our contract engineer doesn't know C/C++ I've been teaching myself Java, HTML5, CSS3, and Dart attempting write software to provide a operator's GUI which controls the other computers and cameras on the aircraft LAN.

My title is Ecologist.

I discovered the files after I discovered in some log that they were still there after my attempted removal. I installed and removed them again with no change. Since the system doesn't appear to work any worse after I changee the script name I guess it is save to remove them by hand.

NTS is not available from my device, the computer is new and I don't know how to set it up yet.

The device (not on the LAN at the moment) is a Network Time Server that uses GPS to keep track of time; it doesn't output NMEA.

It doesn't matter if the cable is plugged in or not. I also used a different cable that I unplugged from a working machine.

All the ports are enabled on the router and the port the cable is plugged into blinks green. The computer has no link lights. I've only had the computer for a couple of weeks. I'm using a cable that's been known to work - I just disconnected it from another computer.

It is connected to the router by cable. It's still there but there's no IP address associated with it.
