small TCP server to transparently write/read data to/from the PLCBUS via plc2pc interface 1141+
- reads data from the connected TCP clients in chunks of 8 Bytes and writes those as they where received to the serial interface of the 1141+
- reads data in chunks of 9 Bytes from the serial interface of the 1141 and distributes it to all connected TCP clients.
This server is intended to be used with the PLCBUS module of misterhouse. It was created because the 1141+ is quiet touchy about the read/write timings and doesn't seem to like the timing of the misterhouse loop...
currently the project requires to use qt5 qmake. It's located in /usr/lib/qt5/bin on my system (gentoo).
To install the server run:
git clone https://github.com/tobser/plcbussrv cd plcbussrv /usr/lib/qt5/bin/qmake make sudo make install
plcbussrv <serial_device> <tcp_port>
plcbussrv /dev/ttyplcbus 3234
All code is based on the Qt samples with some clue added.. nothing new here. So for licensing issues, the license probably depends on what Qt says.. In case this is not the case, WTFPL shall be used.
