Thanks for the answer much appreciated.
firstly. while i am an electronic engineer by degree it has been a long time since I did anything technical (switched to marketing) so pls be gentle.
now on to the issue at hand.
If the JFFS messages relate to the zwave devices which make up the network i wouldn't worry (yet) as I am doing all my installation on a block of wood with switches(test bed) so that i learn how everything works before I install them behind my switches. So from time to time the Nodes dissapear because i unplug the test bed.
If the error message isnt related to above then lets see latter.
on to the serial connection (with the NX584 i am trying to achieve)
I only understood vera has a preference for speicific serial connections last night
. I have two cables already from previous pcs so I will try both. So far i only tried one.
Q1. When doing all the testing etc. Should the usb to serial adapter be connected to the end device or not? (the NX 584 in this case)
Q2. If yes (or for latter use) do i need to do something to the nx to switch the tx and rx of the cable or should it work as is?
Q3. As I never did get into linux could you clarify what command exactly? (when you guys say run XXXX does it translates to type in the string after run at the command prompt?
thanks again and i hope to have more info by tonight!
