Hi, It is possible to give the XPort (Lantronix) a name. I do this with the Lantronix DeviceInstaller. I would like to read/get this name with a bascom code. Does anybody now if its possible at all, and if possible, how? Some more information, although i think this is not necessary to know: I use an ATMega1280 and the XPort is connected to one of my UARTs. I configure XPort only via the Lantronix DeviceInstaller. Thanks Andrea
Hi, if you use the virtual com port, the name is e.g. COM3. If you communicate with the XPort directly, it has a TCP/IP address. To give it a friendly name you must have a DNS-Server within your net. Ask your network administrator. Regards Reinhard
Apparently, I did not make myself clear. I don't have a problme with the communication, everything works fine. With the Lantronix DeviceInstaller I can set a property 'name' for the XPort, I dont't need this name for communication, I want to use it for something else. What I want is to read/Get this property 'name' in my bascom code, if its possible at all. If it's not possible. no problem, this is only one way to solve my task. But maybe someone knows how to get it. Thanks Andrea
It's still unclear what you want to do, so if you want to give your device a name then watch out for C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc hosts file and simply give it a name. In this case you don't need a DNS environment.
Please have a look at the Lantronix DeviceInstaller tif. You can see there is a property 'name'. For example: When I use a Xbee module, there is a property called 'nodeidentifier' which is the same like the 'name' property, in XPort. This 'nodeidentifier' I can access in my Bascom code by setting the xbee in Command mode and then sending the AT Command 'atni', which returns the 'nodeidentifier'. I want to know what i have to do to get the 'name' of the XPort, if possible at all. I hope I could clarify. Sorry for the inconvenience ;-)
