How to Use
This is not production ready; in particular there are many known issues or portions of the insteon protocol that are not implemented fully or possibly correctly. Any help is appreciated ;)
This has been tested with the following environments and devices:
PowerLinc Serial Dual Band Modem (#2413S) connected to Ubuntu 11.10 via Windows 7 host VMWare Player.
- As long as the VM recognizes the host serial port, you should be able to connect using port "/dev/ttyS0"
PowerLinc Portable USB (#2448A7) connected to MacBook Air OSX 10.7.4.
- To activate the USB, must install the MAC OSX drivers: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm http://www.ftdichip.com/Support/Documents/AppNotes/AN_134_FTDI_Drivers_Installation_Guide_for_MAC_OSX.pdf
- Once installed, you should be able to connect using a port similar to "/dev/tty.usbserial-A8006Xpl"
PowerLinc USB Modem (#2412U) connected to Ubuntu 11.10 via Windows 7 host VMWare Player.
- To activate the USB drivers, must install the Windows drivers: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm
- Once installed, and the VM recognized the host USB port, you should be able to connect using port "/dev/USBS0"
Note, others reported needing to comment out "parity" and "flowcontrol" for theirs to work (#2413U).
