Hi all!

I have been in machine maintenance at Caterpillar for 6 years and recently got a new gig at a Ma and Pa machine shop.
I have come to face a problem I have never had to deal with. I have never had to back up machine parameters to a computer or vice versa. We had an "IT" guy and that is all he did was back ups and battery replacement. I seriously haven't got a clue on what I need as far as hardware, software or cabling. 95% of my machines are Fanuc controlled starting at a 10T and going to the mist current "i" controls.

Any help would be awesome on what I need to buy as far as a laptop and program software.
