What is VPN Gateway E-sys? VPN gateway on E-sys function is used for remote coding,the client PC without BMW coding software,only with a remote software and a BMW ICOM or ENET.But your PC need installed BMW coding software.And you are able use your PC to do remote coding for the remote client.
Requirements on the local PC (BMW coder PC) – Windows 7, 8 or 10 – Full activated E-SYS with valid Token – Hamachi VPN client by Logmein (https://www.vpn.net/) – Remote desktop access software such as Ultraviewer (free) or Teamviewer — BMW E-sys 3.33.0/3.32.1/3.30.01 Coding Software Free Download Requirements on the remote PC – Windows 7, 8 or 10 – Hamachi VPN client by Logmein (https://www.vpn.net/) – Remote desktop access software such as Ultraviewer (free) or Teamviewer – ZGW_SEARCH.exe & MSWINSCK.OCX (From C:\EDIABAS\Hardware\ENET) – No need to install BMW Standard Tools on the remote PC, unless you require.
– ENET OBD cable – Laptop with RJ45 port How to configure and prepare your PC as the BMW coder 1.Install and register Hamachi with a valid email address 2.Create a network name and assign a password You can manage your network and clients online from the logmein.com website (Free up to 5 clients, delete clients as you need, so you don’t have to pay) 3.Make sure your E-SYS is functional and up to date 4.Make sure your remote desktop client is functional and up to date How to configure and prepare the remote PC Prior to performing the installation and configuration tasks, make sure the laptop has just been started, sometimes laptop that come back from sleep have network issue until full rebooted. 1.Login to the remote PC and switch off any firewall and Anti Virus.2.Run ZGW_SEARCH.exe to figure out the car’s IP address (It should be 169.254.x.y) If no address are coming up, make sure the relevant network interface is set to DHCP on the laptop and that the car is started/ENET OBD plug is connected. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator in order to change the network settings Ok Press Enter and you have now configured the laptop to accept incoming network traffic the the network port 6801 4.You will now need to do the same with the Hamachi client. Click System > Preferences Then go to Advanced settings From the Advanced settings menu, go to Peer Connections area and add the following new values in the Local UDP / TCP address Enter the value 6801 on both UDP and TCP fields (2nd box only), Click Set for each line. Click OK, the remote PC is now fully configured Now on the your coding PC, click the Start button as highlighted below Once the network is started on your local PC, do the same on the remote PC, make sure the remote PC is configured to join your your previously set up network. If not, then join now. After the remote PC has joined your Hamachi VPN network, then take note of the remote client’s VPN address (Usually starts with 25.x.y.x) and use this IP address in order to connect E-SYS as highlighted on the next screenshot Congratulations, you are now able to code the remote vehicule using E-SYS through VPN network. Select the chassis as usual, then click the Connection via gateway URL an enter the HAMACHI VPN IP address of the remote client. Finally click Connect and you will be able to proceed with the car coding as usual, as if the car was local to you.

Pdc display vertical and horizontal.14. Disable the seat belt status display – passenger seat.15. Disable the seat belt status display – driver seat.16. Disable seat belt reminder – passenger seat.17. Disable seat belt reminder – driving position.18. Disabled unfasten seat belt voice prompts – passenger seat.19.
Disabled unfasten seat belt voice prompts – driving position.20. Intersection vehicle high beam automatic control.21. Angel eyes open and cancel functions.22. Turn off the engine start-stop function – turned on by default.23. Gps time synchronization.24.
Foot open the back cover. Coding using BMW E-sys is the process of configuring the software system built-in on your BWM vehicle, this should not be mistaken with programming. Unlike programming, the risk of messing up the functions of your vehicle is minimal. However, you still need to be careful when configuring your vehicle using BMW E-sys.
You should be knowledgable of the changes and the codes that you’ve applied on your vehicle. If you’re still new to the software, you should have a guide to follow the basic processes. Here’s what you need to start coding using BMW E-sys:
ENET cable E-Sys software (the latest version) with EST token and Pin psdzdata 54.2 A dedicated laptop at least Windows 7 with minimum 16 GB of free space Backup utility for CAF files (optional)
Below is a tutorial video created by KSG on how to get started with BMW E-sys Coding: For information on the ENET cable set up process, check out this guide: How to Set Up the ENET Cable and E-sys for BMW Coding When coding using the BWM E-sys software, you will need a reliable ENET cable to connect the software with your vehicle.
Our OBD Interface ENET Cable is specifically for BMW vehicles. It works with many different BMW models. BMW owners purchase their vehicles because they want a top-of-the-line car that looks great, has plenty of power, and – perhaps more than anything else – is entirely under their control. By modifying various E-SYS modules, you’ll have more control than you can imagine.

|New Member Drives: BMW F20 Join Date: Feb 2017 Location: Portugal|| Coding with ESYS E-Sys v.3.27.1 Hi guys 1 – History.2 – My Coding problem (Why I need your help). – 1 – History On 2016 I started exploring Esys and I made a few modifications on my F20. It all worked fine until Esys stopped working by the end of 2017.
The 3 door does not have the window frame, so when you open the car, the windows have to slightly open, for the door to open as well. My car does not need that so I got stuck with that problem for 2 years. I heard a few months ago that Tokenmaster released a new Launcher, so I sent a message to someone who never failed to help me: Shawnsheridan Thank the Gods this man is always on-line.
After that (and because I don´t know the origin of the Windows problem), I had restored one of the first 2016 CAF backup I had (no errors). After that I coded a few stuff and the car accepted it, but the code did not work. Then I restored the last backup I have (the one with the windows problem), and again and the car accepted it with no errors, but again the code did not work.

Is BMW coding legal?
Is Car Coding Legal? Covering all the legal spectrum – Carly Blog If you are interested in coding your car one of the questions that you might be asking is if car coding is legal? Car coding is usually used for unlocking hidden features in your car and giving it a personal touch! Typically, to do this, you can go to a mechanics workshop and have your car coded by technicians.
- However, the coding service is usually expensive and depending on features that you’d like to code you could be charged several thousand dollars.
- Nevertheless, if you own a suitable OBD2 scanner you can code your car by yourself and save a lot of money.
- Your only cost will be the one time payment for the OBD scanner and mobile app.
However, once you have your own OBD equipment, you can code your car as often as you want! Having this type of access to your car’s ECUs can make you wonder if this is legal. In short, car coding is generally legal and permitted. However, there are some points regarding legal concerns that you should consider and today we will dive deep into these!

What is a VO coding?
This article is about voice encoder. For dictation machine, see voice recorder, Early 1970s vocoder, custom-built for electronic music band Kraftwerk A vocoder (, a portmanteau of voice and encoder ) is a category of speech coding that analyzes and synthesizes the human voice signal for audio data compression, multiplexing, voice encryption or voice transformation.
The vocoder was invented in 1938 by Homer Dudley at Bell Labs as a means of synthesizing human speech. This work was developed into the channel vocoder which was used as a voice codec for telecommunications for speech coding to conserve bandwidth in transmission. By encrypting the control signals, voice transmission can be secured against interception.
Its primary use in this fashion is for secure radio communication. The advantage of this method of encryption is that none of the original signal is sent, only envelopes of the bandpass filters. The receiving unit needs to be set up in the same filter configuration to re-synthesize a version of the original signal spectrum.

How do I run virtual Windows on Mac?
On a Mac, you have several options for installing software that allows you to run Windows and Windows applications:
Run Windows and Windows applications locally:
To dual-boot between macOS and Windows, use Apple’s Boot Camp, This approach provides the most compatibility with Windows software and peripherals, but does not allow you to run Windows and macOS applications at the same time. Note: Boot Camp is no longer supported by Apple devices with an M1 chip. To run Windows in a virtual machine within macOS, use Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, or VirtualBox, This method will allow you to run Mac and Windows applications concurrently, though the virtual machine does not support as much Windows functionality as a dual-boot configuration. To run Windows programs without having to install Windows itself, use a Windows compatibility layer, such as CrossOver Mac, This option typically offers good functionality for a limited set of Windows applications.
IUanyWare IUanyWare is a client virtualization service available to Indiana University students, faculty, and staff. With IUanyWare, you can use a web browser or mobile app to run certain IU-licensed software applications without having to install them on your computer or mobile device.

Should you avoid E numbers?
Should my child avoid these food colours? – If your child is hyperactive, or has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), there’s some evidence to suggest that avoiding these 6 food colours may help. But it’s important to be aware that:
hyperactivity can have many different causes, including genetics, and food colours are probably only a small part of the problemremoving food colours from your child’s diet will not necessarily lead to an improvement in their behaviourthe link between food colours and hyperactivity is not completely certain; more research is needed to confirm ityou do not need to avoid all E numbers; there are hundreds of different E numbers and most are not linked to hyperactivity
If you think your child’s diet may be affecting their behaviour, it might help to keep a diary of what they eat and how their behaviour changes, so you can see any patterns. If you notice a possible link between food colours and their behaviour, you may want to see if avoiding these colours helps. But do not make drastic changes to your child’s diet without getting medical advice first.

What is the purpose of E numbers?
The “E numbers” in the ingredients list of your packaged foods replace the chemical or common name of particular food additives. These are used to enhance the colour, flavour, texture or prevent food from spoiling. Food additives have been used for centuries.
- The ancient Romans would use spices such as saffron to give foods a rich yellow colour.
- Salt and vinegar were used to preserve meats and vegetables for long voyages.
- In the 1960s, regulators decided to make a standardised list of these additives.
- In Europe, these are referred to as E numbers (the E stands for Europe).
In Australia, we just use their code number. So, vitamin C would be called E300 in Europe. In Australia, it can be found on labels with the code number 300, such as “food acid 300”, “ascorbic acid (300)” or “vitamin C (300)”.

What E number is good for you?
Seven facts you didn’t know about E-numbers E-numbers have a negative image for sure, we try to avoid them because, in general, they represent all that is bad for our health. But with so many E’s out there, do we actually understand what they stand for? For starters, did you know that the E actually stands for Europe and it is just a way to indicate that the additive, natural or unnatural, has been submitted to safety tests and has been approved for use in the European Union? Here are seven facts to unravel the E-mystery:
There are over 300 food additives, found in 50% of all supermarket products. Many of these additives are essential nutrients and vitamins that are important for good nutrition. For instance, a few E-numbers essential for the human body are: E300 better known as vitamin C, E101 or rather vitamin B2 and E948 which is in fact oxygen.A surprising 118 E’s can be found in our body. So are 20 E’s synthesized by our body as part of its daily function and additionally our body sources 96 E’s from natural, unprocessed food regardless of whether the food had any E-numbers added to it.All food is made up of chemicals so if you follow an organic diet, you would still consume E-numbers. For example, an organically grown all natural banana contains 50 or more chemicals including E560, E461, E462, E464, E466, E467, E101, E300, E306, E160a & E1510.E-number stabilisers, or E400s, are a vital ingredient for many supermarket products and are often natural. The most common additive, E410 comes from the carob tree. Similarly, E471 is sourced from modified soya beans, the thickener E412 is extracted from guar seeds and E407 derives from seaweed.There are 38 E-number preservatives, or E200s, which prevent diseases such as botulism, which can cause blurred vision, paralysis and death within 24 hours. E-numbers actually save billions for health services globally, thanks to preservatives and flavour enhancers that take up the role of salt, which is linked to heart disease, strokes and higher blood pressure.”The dose makes the poison”, every single food or drink on the planet is toxic at some level, however, the benefits invariably far outweigh the risks. Apples contain cyanide, people can die from water intoxication, cabbage contains goitrogens and potatoes contain toxic solanine but we can still consume them on a daily basis. What mainly differentiates E-numbers is that they’ve been extensively tested and analysed to ascertain safe levels.The leading causes of food allergies and intolerances are still entirely natural varying from milk, wheat, eggs, nuts, fish to soya and celery. However, although most E-numbers are good for you, evidence suggests a maximum of 35 numbers are up for debate because of their potential side effects. A common list of additives you might want to watch out for are:
Although many nutritional fallacies are so often repeated you are forced to believe them, it doesn’t mean they are necessarily true. Research actually shows that E-numbers are just misunderstood numbers, with most of them doing more good than harm. And although some additives are derived from petrochemicals, most of them actually do have natural origins.

I’m not sure I found one when I was starting but I just found the definitions around when figuring out how to do all of those. VO is vehicle order and when you vo code you are adding a option code to your car and intending to code the modules that are required to make use of this new option option code you added to your vehicle order. FDL coding is just coding a single option inside a single ECU and actually when you VO CODE the computer is doing a bunch of FDL CODE for you I. The ECU you select. Like for example I added 2TB sport automatic transition to my vehicle order and coded the modules that were involved with 2TB, BUT I do not have paddles so I manually went into the module that had the FDL code to activate paddles so I could turn it off (because 2TB turns it to active because it assumes you have paddles) FSC codes I am not exactly sure on all I believe I known is that it’s sort of a lock which only opens when matched to its original vin. Like there’s three FSC code that belong to NAVIGATION and if they are rejected then the navigation will be grayed out on idrive, though this can be bypassed if you have a emulator because it will allow the NBT to keep its donor vin and thus there won’t be a mismatch between the FSC codes and vin if you have a retrofitted NBT
|Originally Posted by 5mall5nail5 Ok – interesting. Very helpful! So, if I ever sell my car some day, is there a way to apply the original, non-tampered “VO” profile back? Like, I know what I coded, generally, but if I ever want to reset it to “Whatever it came with before I messed with it” is there a VO built into the car some place that defines the packages it had? I understand now though, so very helpful. So for instance if I got an M Sport wheel I could VO code 2BT (my car actually has 2BT. but this is hypothetical) and that’d enable trans program as well as paddles vs. having to go do FDL on both the trans and the paddles?|
Yes! I recommend actually that you make a backup of all the main files of you car so just in case something goes wrong you can go back to stock, same applies to if you are going to sell it you can just load up the original file and bring the car back to stock. The car itself doesn’t come with so called file BUT you can generate it yourself all you have to do is first time you load up e-sys with the car connected, go to expert > coding and “read” the FA and save that and call it original and make two copies of that and place it somewhere safe and something goes with “read ecu/svt” and your “cafd” files, save and make a copy of those all before you start messing around with things. and 2TB? and yes absolutely, the paddles themselves you dont code the coding is a part of the FEM so that is that one you would go in to FDL code whether you want paddles on or not. I dont have the file to install anymore but search up the NcdCafdTool, you can load up your cars original VO and you can checkbox an option to see what codes it will change/the modules you need to VO code to get it working properly.

Thanks man! One last question – since I already coded w/ Bimmercode (FDLs, I guess) is there anyway to get the “original” config pre-me coding with Bimmercode? What does “FA” mean and what are CAFD files? _ 2015 BSM 328i Sport Line – BSM 2015 BSM X1 M Sport – BSM 1992 525i 1987 325e

Yea I actually code with bimmercode too you dont have to worry basically bimmercode doesnt change you VO so when you read your VO it will be what it came with from factory, then if you VO code with the orginal VO activated it will wipe all of you FDL coding made by bimmercode and bring you back to stock. and FA is just the same as VO they are interchangeable last time I checked CAFD files I’m not sure exactly the definition but I can give you an example of how they’re applied. Basically when you go to retrofit something the ECU from the donor car still has the old cars CAFD, when you retrofit it you’re most likely going to have to inject YOUR cars CAFD into it to get it working properly. For example: I went to go retrofit a KOMBI (instrument cluster) which was pre owned so I opened it up and cleared the VIN so I could write my vin to the KOMBI. Just for fun I plugged it in without any coding and immediately it came to life BUT since it was for a different model BMW the gauges did not work and there were a bunch of error lights on dash and it basically thought it was still the old car, even had a picture of the old car on it when it started up. AFTER injecting my cars cafd into it all the gauges came to life, errors went away (like it thinking I had a sunroof disappeared), and it showed a picture of MY car.
|Originally Posted by Makaronai Hi, I’ve read all your posts. Could someone explain or point to some resources about this issue on 2020 X6 M50i.

Any ideas or help would be much appreciated! Thanks|
The feature you describe uses data embedded in navigation map. Not all countries in Europe have this data in BMW map database so function is not working. Coding is not enough to enable this function, BMW must add in map data the information required for this to work. _ Current cars: 2016 F13 640XD ; 2017 F36 420XD Past cars: 2010 E93 320i ; 2008 E60 530XD ; 2006 E90 320D

Disclaimer – Snooze Time? Warning, Bruce is about to launch into another of his technical postings, chock full of a lot of acronyms, and funny tech words, so unless you’re a car technology geek and really, really love your car, chances are this will put you right to sleep, so save it for bed time.
- If, however, you’d like to learn more about how we care for, maintain and service your BMW and Mini Cooper, then read on.
- Commitment All good relationships start with a commitment, right? Our commitment to the BMW and Mini product, and investments in tooling, diagnostic suite and training have rapidly made us the choice for BMW service in coastal Maine.
The Atlantic Motorcar Center is currently the only service point in Maine, other than the BMW and Mini dealer, to have full BMW ISTA Diagnostic, Coding and Programing ability. We can service even the newest BMW models, offering you BMW dealer level service (we follow all applicable service schedules) without the dealership cost.
- Be it a loved classic or the newest BMW model, we have equipped our workshop to service your car.
- So What Is ISTA and ISTA/P? We’ve recently added the new BMW ISTA and ISTA/P systems to our diagnostic suite, let’s talk about what ISTA and ISTA/P consist of.
- Understand that when we mention BMW here, it also applies to Mini Cooper.
ISTA (which stands for Integrated Service Technical Application) consists of three parts, ISIS (Integrated Service Information System/Server). ISSS (Integrated Software Service Station) – Handles all the ISTA/P sessions for programing/coding BMW systems.
- ISID (Integrated Service Information Display) – a PC which contains the ISTA/D (Diagnostics) software and used to control ISTA/P to initiate and run programming sessions.
- This is what our technicians carry around the workshop and perform diagnostic, coding and programing services on your BMW.
- ICOM Unit (ICOM emulator) interfaces the BMW ISID to your BMW’s diagnstic connection or MOST interface to allow diagnistics to run, and to send coding and programing commands and software.
The ISTA software is a vast leap in technology and complexity over GT-1/DIS/Progman with a ton of interconnecting pieces across several systems. BMW E91 328XI Update Example – Fixing Things Through Software Below we show the complete IATA Measures Plan update we recently carried out on a BMW E91 328Xi Touring Wagon.
You can see that multiple modules and computers required updates to the newest BMW software release. BMW updates vehicle software from time to time to deal with problems developed during service, and these updates can often correct hardware or mechanical faults. Next Steps In any case, it is a good matter to update your BMW’s software once a year, to keep current with the latest updates.
As a policy and for customer benefit, we update the software on all of our preowned sales cars during our reconditioning and certification process. We’re Here To Help We’d be delighted to answer any questions you might have on your BMW, Mini or other late model European auto, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Service Advisors.
