Re: Serial Bridge.



Hi,

I seem to be having some issues getting the bridge to run properly.

Are all the parameters in unix format?  Do I need to specify all of them?

The heartbeat msg from the bridge, seems to return an error at best,
and for the rest of my attempts nothing.

The error is as follows
-----
Error Message: A xAP message received was malformed. The UID FF000101
is setup as a subaddress but the Source address is not: Rocket.Bridge.One
Received From: 192.168.0.7:2569

xap-hbeat
{
v=12
hop=1
uid=FF000101
class=xap-hbeat.alive
source=Rocket.Bridge.One
interval=60
port=3639
}
-----

I must be doing something simple wrong here, does anyone have any
ideas please?

Thanks

Dan
