3.4. Specifying the Programming Hardware Setup

Before you can program or configure a device, you must specify an appropriate hardware setup. The Programmer's Hardware Setup dialog box allows you to add and remove programming hardware or JTAG servers from the current programming setup. You can specify a hardware setup for device programming or configuration, or configure a local JTAG server.

A JTAG server allows the Intel® Quartus® Prime Programmer to access the JTAG programming hardware connected to a remote computer through the JTAG server of that computer. The JTAG server allows you to control the programming or configuration of devices from a single computer through other computers at remote locations. The JTAG server uses the TCP/IP communications protocol.
