Yes, that should be possible. What error message are getting in X-CTU's 'Range Test' window?

I have achieved it.

I needed to fill in the box of my own address.

I also had to remove the rssi LED.

I can see how I send and receive packages but the function of the local xbee and remote xbee DBMs does not work. Could you tell me the reason? thanks!!!

Thank you very much for answering!

The option selects the remote device, it appears disabled, I think this model is not possible.
Then I go to: Remote selection and select: 16 bit address. (the only option in which it shows me error).
Enter the MAC of xbee B which is: EC2B and select loopback.
Pulse in start range test and the xbee A sends packets but receives none.

Previously I have configured the two xbee in transparent peer to peer and each with the address of the other in destination address.

the loopback grove of the xbe B is with the jumper in loopback.

I need to do?

The XSC code does not support 64 bit addressing or API mode. So you need to choose the 16 bit address function and enter in the MY value of the remote. If you do not know it, use the global address of 0xFFFF
