Title: Provide ability to Create/Register IP-based Serial Port directly in Vera UI
Post by: guessed on January 11, 2010, 12:30:38 pm
Vera can automatically "detect", and register, Local USB-Serial ports.  This works reasonably well.

There are cases though where the Serial Port is "remote", running on some IP Host/Port combination somewhere.

eg. ser2net on a remote Box, WIZnet 110SR Hardware running remotely (etc)

In each case, the configuration of these boxes is done completely outside of Vera, and we simply need to be able to register an IP Address and Port combination with Vera to get a "Remote" serial port (so that TV's, Amps, Alarm Panels etc can be attached)

More "specific" Serial port registrations, like the GC100 one, can be handled via a Device-specific plugin, but it doesn't make sense to proliferate a bunch of these for "standard" devices using only Host/Port combo's (no security)

Can you add a feature to let folks "(Add Serial Port)", providing only the IP-Address and Port combination?

Attached are some stubs for a short-term workaround for this problem until something more formal is built into Vera. 

The code is hardwired to port 5000, and would need to be parametized (or simply edited for the desired port) as this is the port used by the WIZnet SR110 Ethernet-Serial device I use.

Once installed, the "ip" address needs to be configured before it'll start.  An error will result during startup if this isn't set.

The code is rough and ready, but I've successfully used it to wire up my TV.


Don't forget to goto the Serial Port configuration and set the rest of the settings, as the Plugin doesn't do it all just yet (its a stub)

rev'd the IPSerial code to better support UI4, as well as provide the ability to specify the Port# through configuration (it defaults to 5000 per before) for those running other types of IP Serial attached devices... and needing this MiOS work-around.

It also supports multi-port Ethernet-to-Serial devices now, like the WIZnet WIZ125SR, using a comma-separated list of port#'s.


MCV, CJ: Can you please re-open

with the extra info from this thread?  It would be better if this were more native functionality in MiOS's native Serial Port dialog.

I have only had my Vera for about a month.  I have only added plugins from the Mios MarketPlace and only added Zwave devices.

The WIZnet SR110 has been configured and tested with my Windows PC using two instance of HyperTerminal (one Serial and one IP) and works fine.

The files D_IPSerial.xml and I_IPSerial.xml have been downloaded and added to the LUUP files of the Vera from the development window.  I have attempted to add a device via the development window but I keep keeping a “XML Error” when I click the “Create Device” button.

For the Device Type I used “urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:MultiIO:1”.  I entered the device xml file (D_IPSerial.xml ), implementation xml file (I_IPSerial.xml), IP address and MAC address.

Any help would be much appreciated.  Do I need to modify the XML files?  The port is correct but I’m not sure what the UDN code is in the device files.

Thanks,
Rory

When creating the device, fill in the fields per this:
    http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_ipserial/wiki/Installation-UI4

or the generic version of it:
    http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Install_LUUP_Plugins

No other fields need to be entered, other than described in the above links.

That said, given the error message you're getting, I'd suspect that there was an issue in the way the Plugin files were downloaded and that you may not have the XML version of them.  Please re-download the ZIP version, and then expand.  I updated the plugin over the weekend, and converted the install instructions to use a ZIP-file link instead, which should give you a clean set of files.

Sorry maybe a stupid question but how can I setup multiple IP-serial devices? Is the only way to install the files under a different name?

It should work fine with the same name. You just need to create new instances of the device using the device file names D_IPSerial.xml and I_IPSerial.xml as detailed here:

http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Install_LUUP_Plugins (UI4)

You will not need to do step 2 if you already created one instance! In the description field just name it something unique to help you identify each one.

Thanks!

Cant see why not so long as you match the baud rate, data bits and stop bits! I have 3 different devices connected to IP serial devices and they all work fine.
Title: Re: Provide ability to Create/Register IP-based Serial Port directly in Vera UI
Post by: dgdev on May 06, 2012, 11:07:30 am
The reason I asked is Digi PortServers use Digi's proprietary RealPort, which according to the manual:

Quote
The RealPort Profile allows you to map a COM or TTY port to the serial port of your Digi device server. The COM/TTY port appears and behaves as a local port to the PC or server. RealPort is also known as COM Port Redirection
This requires Digi provided software to be loaded on to the OS (Windows, Mac, Linux), which obvious can't be done here.

Digging deeper in the manual, I can setup a port using TCP Sockets:
Quote
The TCP Sockets Profile allows serial devices to communicate over a TCP network. The TCP Server configuration allows other network devices to initiate a TCP connection to the serial device attached to a serial port of the Digi device server. This is also referred to as Reverse Telnet.

I'm assuming this would be the correct mode to use with the IPSerial plugin.

Thanks!

I've confirmed that the Digi PortServer does work with the IPSerial plugin by setting it to TCP Sockets. Just wanted to update this in case anyone else had the same question.

Can you advise me how go set up for testing

At the moment i do not have (yet) an ip to rs232 adapter but would like to use an pc as test adaptef
I presume that it must be done by hyperterminal  but can you give some guidance

Further can i use this two way ie sending command and receiving commands?

Last qjestion for now how to sent hex codes

Post by: guessed on September 01, 2012, 05:17:04 pm
@Huib,
If the device under test is transmitting in plaintext, then you can use HyperTerminal (or similar) on your machine to talk to it (with a suitable USB-RS232 Adapter cable).  You'll be able to send commands, and see the responses printed directly to the terminal.

If the device is transmitting in Binary, things will definitely be trickier.

You can sometimes use Ctrl-characters to send a limited set of Binary, but it's generally not worth it.  For these cases it's often easier to write a plugin and place Vera near the device-under-test so you can test it.  Vera will emit Hex versions of the data being sent, and received, which makes it a lot easier to see what's going on.

Most of the Binary protocols I've seen tend to add Checksums (etc) which make it far too awkward to deal with via a standard terminal.

Ok, looks like I'm not clear on what you're trying to do.

If you want your PC to act as an IP enabled Serial port that bridges Vera and the device-under-control, then you'll need the PC to run a COM redirector program.

I don't think that functionality is built into hyper terminal.

@guessed,
I would like to simulate the ip to rs232 adapter

So if the vera will sent an message, i want to see the message on the hyperterminal
Further i want to sent from the hyperterminal the message in to the vera

If the in and output are as required than i can go to the next step in my project

So with the hyperterminal i want to see the datastream sent to the adapter to verify the plugin i am trying to make

So i am looking how to set up the hyperterminal and the settings

I hope that i made it more clear to you

Title: Re: Provide ability to Create/Register IP-based Serial Port directly in Vera UI
Post by: guessed on September 02, 2012, 04:47:31 pm
If you want Hyperterminal to be the client to Vera you can use two USB-RS232 cables, with an appropriate F-F cross-over device between, and you'll see everything [printable] that Vera sends over.  Similarly, everything you type will be echo'd back to Vera. 

All bets are off once the protocol goes Binary though, since you'll have all sorts of non-printables in there.

From Vera's standpoint it works the same whether it's IP or Serial, so that part really doesn't matter.  I don't think Hyperterminal can be configured to do the required TCP listen to receive connections from Vera, so it's a little hard to do without intermediate hardware of some form... 

You probably could write a little free-standing Lua program to run on the Windows box, and do the TCP Server component, if you wanted to test that component.

Anything more than that, and you might as well buy the real IP-Serial device (they're under $30 in the US)

Hi @ guessed

Quick question, I have a serial to USB device connected to another machine which is recieving power usage information (http://www.currentcost.com/cc128/xml.htm). Will your plugin allow me to see this information and process it in Vera ?
Title: Re: Provide ability to Create/Register IP-based Serial Port directly in Vera UI
Post by: guessed on September 03, 2012, 12:08:29 pm
If you ran COM port redirector (software) on the PC then the COM port would be exposed via TCP on your LAN.  Then, using the IP Serial plugin [hack] it could further be exposed to Vera for use in any plugin that can handle its data.

I haven't worked with that tool, but there's probably a dozen out there for Linux, you'd just need to find one for your distro/arch combo.

ser2net (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ser2net/) is the one inside Vera that's performing the bridging work for IP <-> Serial, then they just use standard USB drivers to get the serPorts recognized.

I've attached a screenshot of the manual for a matrix switcher I'm looking at, that Vera might control. Working with you a while back on building a plugin for my Kira Ir transmitter and then another for the SkyHD remote codes .

Do you or are you aware if anything plugin files out there that would allow me to just update the  xmls with the binary numbers ready to be when e.g. button 1 is sent?

Netcat is great, but it's not aimed at configuring serial ports, so you'd have to set baud rate, parity, etc., using some other tool.  If you want to move data between stdio, files and TCP/UDP connections, netcat is definitely the right tool for the job.

Thanks futzle

My goal now is to have everything done via Vera (nothing running on a PC)  and maybe I am thinking too simplistically, but it seems to make this Matrix Switcher work over RS232 I need to be able to send a binary message ideally via a IP to RS232 device.

I'll have a look at the rs232 plugins that exist, but obviously if someone had a set up already and it was just the binary messages that needed to be changed, it could save a lot of time, effort (and potential confusion on my part) ;). Hence I would buy the same Hardware and just modify the values.

It was built as a [very] short-term hack (http://bugs.micasaverde.com/view.php?id=769) (yrs ago), with the intention of MCV "absorbing" the functionality in the UI.

Everyone now knows how to code plugins to connect to both Serial and IP, so it's no longer needed.  The core functional workaround should be implemented in every Plugin (and is, to my knowledge)

If it's missing from a particular Plugin, then folks should pursue that plugin author to add the work-around, or perhaps MCV to start fixing their aging bug queues.

I run a Wiznet110SR for my connection to my Networx alarm panel.  It just works and shows up on my network.  I tapped a nearby USB port for power, reserved an IP for it in DHCP and voila no serial connection needed at the alarm panel.  Btw I configured the port in the UI7 interface.

As with everything Vera, it seems like you either have to tinker and get lucky or be part of a special club to be provided with instructions on how to set it up.  Support hasn't been any help, and hours of looking through posts and wikis aren't helpful either.  There's so much garbage from prior UIs that don't work the same in the current version.

I have had the WizNet setup for years with a PC application and no issues.  It took installing a driver and opening the port.  In Vera, I'm on 3 factory resets and the closest I have managed to come is I have gotten it to display "port successfully open" although I wasn't able to do anything afterwards.  Now I can't even get that back even though I'm following the exact same steps as what I did before.

As with everything Vera, it seems like you either have to tinker and get lucky or be part of a special club to be provided with instructions on how to set it up.

Ok if you've done this setup with another application this should be easy.  You should configure the WizNet device using the configuration tool from a PC.  This tool is not a driver, nor does it continue to interact with the Wiznet device after you close it.  You used this configuration tool when you set it up for use with the PC application.  What you may not realize is that this software does nothing after you configure the Wiznet and all you are trying to do here is set the configuration into the device.  You don't need special software or even a plugin on the Vera.

You need to configure the Network and Serial tabs for the Wiznet.  On the network side I would check my router and set a DHCP reservation for the IP of the Wiznet board.  Then set the Wiznet to mixed mode with the Local IP and Server IP on this reserved address.  Set the port to 5000 I won't get into port settings but for now just set it to 5000 unless there is advice for some other port (UDP..etc.)  I know you could leave it in DHCP mode but I just find it easier during the setup to not have the IP jumping around on me and I can do a Direct IP search when I need to see the configuration.  If I set it to an IP I know that is the IP I can use for all the tools.

On the serial side you need to know what the settings are for the device you are connecting to.  If you get unexpected results ie. the port is found and connects but the data seems scrambled then you should double check these settings.  Devices with typically use 8N1 that is 8 databits, no parity and 1 stop bit depending on the UART chip.  If you can't find the information use these settings.  You may need to experiment with the flow control and the baud rate (speed).  I don't know what you are connecting to so look for some documentation to help you out.

After all this is done.  You need to consume this port in the Vera.  All devices seem to have an ip parameter in the Vera.  Simply put the IP:port for the Wiznet in this field and it is connected to the serial port.

I hope this helps.
Title: Re: Provide ability to Create/Register IP-based Serial Port directly in Vera UI
Post by: skiz77 on January 01, 2015, 01:14:51 pm
So my point was that I actually didn't need help with anything until "consume this on the Vera".  By "driver" on the PC, I was referring to the virtual device that turns the remote TCP port (socket) into a local Serial I/O port which allows me to write .NET code that uses System.IO.Ports.  Not rocket surgery.  ;D

Point is, I don't need help with anything but Vera.  WizNet gives me directions, and I've used my WizNet for 2 years with no issues.  Vera on the other hand hasn't updated their documentation since, well, ever.

Vera UI7 doesn't let me configure anything until it "detects" something.  How is it supposed to "detect" something that is sitting on a remote TCP port without me configuring something (i.e. IP and port)?  So, since I can't seem to get anywhere with the native UI7, I downloaded IPSerial xml files, which seems to be the only way?  A few attempts, wipes, and attempts more (apparently you must create a dummy IPSerial device then restart the engine -- which makes some sense but begs why the restart on upload is default?), and I finally get a (non-virtual?) device to show up under Develop Apps -> USB/Serial Devices that is asking for several bits of information.  I can't figure out if I can put in arbitrary stuff there or what (I mean I put the IP and port number, but that's two of like six fields).  Anyway, eventually I see a status of connecting at the top, and the port is no longer accessible by anyone else.  So it must be working, or so I think. 

I select the built-in "Insteon Network" device (since I'm trying to access a remote PLM), but the built-in Insteon module still won't use the new remote port I just spent 2 days creating.  As best I can tell from the logging, it expects USB or nothing at all.  Furthermore, all I did was restart Vera, and now I can't seem to get it to 'connect' again.  I don't feel any desire to wipe Vera again, since that seems to be the key to getting anything working in UI7.

Post by: rstrouse on January 01, 2015, 01:41:05 pm
I too am a .NET programmer and an ex-rocket surgeon of sorts.  I have been kicking around the idea of getting some Insteon stuff too but don't have any yet.  Have you tried configuring the PLM through the USB port then modifying the settings after the configuration? Also, does the PLM use RS232 or native USB? 

Btw. It looks like if you continue to press next through the pairing process for the PLM it will error out and you will finally get to a Port field.  This may be your savior.  No PLM so I can't try it.
