Is there still no way to launch the velbuslink software as a server?
It would be nice to have command line params to to exe in order to connect to a certain com port and start the server.
This would make it easy to launch teh tool at windwos startup. I’m running the tool as a server for own-wriietn software that connects to the velbuslink server.
ALthough it’s not finished yet I’ll post it soon on the forum
Hello… I am, of course, unable to help you, but, I have a request : could you provide me your code part that connect to the server ?
I will make a new post about it within some minutes.
I know that there is a small tool that can make an executable in a service. Can’t remember the details anymore but if this is what you are looking for, I will take a search back again in my archives…
Any updates on this?
In order to write decent tools for Velbus this is a showstopper …
May be Velbuslink can be downloaded with source code so people can add this functionality?
Version 5.9 now has a profile option, which is nice.
But it’s even more difficult to automate starting up as a server
Please make it possible to startup with the last used profile, or to add the profile name as a parameter …
same with the server option, of course …
If you don’t intend (want/have time) to do this, please provide me the sources so I can add this feature myselve … I’ll send it back to you once it’s done. P-Lease
What server mode does is simply forward everything from TCP/IP to RS232 and back, nothing special. Ideal solution would be a Windows Service that performs this task. I don’t have to time to create this at the moment but who knows
Is it possible to share the snippets of code that you use in VelbusLink? May be I can use this to create a standalone service out of it. I’m not very used to work with C# but it does not look very complicated …
Actually, VelbusLink is written in Delphi 7…
Any further thoughts about setting up Velbuslink as server at startup?
Is there an other way of doing this?
