Windows Serial Proxy
Luup plugins talk to serial ports (RS232) using a serial->ethernet proxy. This allows the serial ports to reside anywhere on the network, including devices like the Global Cache GC-100. If you want to connect your Luup device to a COM port on your Windows computer, download this zip file: http://download.controlmyhouse.net/betafirmware/ftp/serproxy.zip
Unpack the contents of the ZIP file into a directory on your Windows computer, such as C:\serproxy and start a command prompt by choosing "Run" and entering: cmd
Change to the directory that contains the contents of serproxy.zip, such as typing: cd \serproxy
Run the program by typing this in the console:
serproxy.exe ip windows port
where "ip" is the IP address of Vera, and "port" is a Windows COM: port, such as COM2. For example:
serproxy.exe 192.168.1.103 windows COM1
NOTE: The source code, for both Linux and Windows, is here.
NOTE: On Vera, serproxy is no longer used because serproxy (the GPL app) has some issues with dropping characters. So we switched to ser2net (http://linux.die.net/man/8/ser2net), and the serproxy binary is just a wrapper that calls ser2net.
