My clients typically require me to set up their Campbell dataloggers with the PakBus encryption key enabled because the PakBus address and old-style CSI security code are insufficient security measures. In the eagle.io interface, I saw the PakBus address field and security code, but I didn't see a field for the PakBus encryption key. Does having the encryption key enabled on the datalogger prohibit me from connecting via eagle.io?
PakBus encryption key

We rely on the Java SDK supplied by Campbell Scientific to communicate with PakBus devices. The SDK documentation doesn't mention encryption so at this stage I assume it does not currently support this feature but i've reached out to CSI for confirmation.
If you are using cellular modems for communication, another option is our Scout modem that encrypts all traffic to our servers using SSL (removing the need for PakBus protocol encryption).
I've just integrated the latest version of the CSI PakBus JAVA-SDK which includes support for encryption.
Let me know how you go.
