For a device without any sub devices the UID must end 00 .
so the hbeat should be

xap-hbeat
{
v=12
hop=1
uid=FF000100
class=xap-hbeat.alive
source=Rocket.Bridge.One
interval=60
port=3639
}


If you did have sub devices then the first subdevice would have a uid of
ff000101 and a source of rocket.bridge.one:DeviceA . Even if you did have
sub devices only the master device would send heartbearts and would still
look like the message above.

<pre wrap="">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

This is a bit of a guess but:
xap-bridge [serial port] [instance name] [network interface] [udp port]

Very simple serial bridge - only listens on serial port at 9600
(fixed), does not modify hop count. Forwards messages on to ethernet
interface without verifying integrity.


xAP Serial - Ethernet bridge

*/
which implies a 9600 baud

but this
newtio.c_cflag = B19200CS8CREADCLOCAL;
newtio.c_iflag=IGNBRK  IGNPAR  IXON  IXOFF;
newtio.c_lflag=0;

newtio.c_cc[VTIME]=0;
newtio.c_cc[VMIN]=0;

cfsetispeed(&amp;newtio, B19200);        // this seems to be
necessary under
cfsetospeed(&amp;newtio, B19200);            // Cygwin, it isn't
required under Linux

would imply a 19200 baud?

I have downloaded Patrick's Serial Bridge.  What is the commandline
format?

Is it xap-bridge.exe &lt;port&gt;?

or are there other parameters required?

I am wanting to play around with some AVR Microprocessors am I right
in assuming as long as the serial bridge is listening on the correct
port (6 in my case).  I just send a xAP msg over the serial interface
and the Bridge should handle it ok?

I am looking at trying to make some simple light level detector's
using Bascom.

Any tips?

Cheers
