Users / Updated Template list
« on: May 09, 2013, 08:31:45 pm »
I am trying to find a template that Whateverfits has submitted and cannot find it.  The template uses manufacturer: Radio Thermostats and the description is: 3M50

I do not have the manufacturer in the manufacturer list. Possy confirmed that the Manufacturer exists in his list

I made sure my core was upto date - apt-get Update and Upgrade then

I did a sqlCVS Diff, reverted everything and did and "sqlCVS Update".

My understanding is that the templates should be upto date - am I doing something wrong?

Users / 1-Wire Temperature Sensors
« on: February 16, 2013, 06:46:20 pm »
So I have 4 Temperature sensors installed in my 1-Wire network.

2 days back 1 was accidentally unplugged.  Since then the temperature has remained constant at the temp that was being reported - even after a reload and reboot.  what is the correct process for getting this to work again?

Users / Asterisk Security
« on: January 11, 2013, 07:28:05 pm »
is Asterisk in LMCE 10.04 vunerable to brute force attacks?

there was a period earlier where lots of people were being billed for hacked calls, is security better now or is it still suggested to use something like fail2ban?

Users / 1-wire Autodetection
« on: December 20, 2012, 07:45:29 pm »
Over the last 6 months I have reinstalled a number of time for various reasons and everytime my 1-Wire USB device was autodetected, installed and then the connected sensors were found and installed.  This sometime took days, one time was really quick (L3mce said it was because of changes to the detection radar).  My latest install has been up for 3 months now and is yet to detect and install the device.

Any ideas if this is working right now?

Does anyone know how to set up the iPhone's VPN client to access LMCE?

Users / 0810 or 1004?
« on: August 14, 2012, 11:33:53 pm »
So it is time to replace my aging core with a monster core (tyrannoCOREus rex) and I am wondering if I should bite the bullet and proceed to 1004?

I have seen many posts stating how stable 1004 is and that all sounds good but are there any features of 0810 that are currently not ready in 1004?

Users / Redirecting certain network traffic based on URL
« on: July 05, 2012, 06:38:08 am »
I have a std LMCE setup (external - core/hybrid - internal) network.  what I want to do is redirect certain traffic from the internal and core/hybrid that is bound for the internet through a VPN and the rest of the traffic via the normal route.  What is the best way to do this?

Users / 1-Wire Deployment
« on: February 08, 2012, 07:05:52 pm »
I have a 1-Wire interface and would like to get some input from other 1-wire users on how they are planning to expand this network, what wiring, how many sensors, types of sensors and parasitic or separate power.

So far I have Cat5e run throughout my house and therefore I was thinking of using 4 of the 8 wires for any POTS (telephone) network which leaves 4 for something else.  I was planning to dedicate 2 or 3 to 1-wire.

All these Cat5e runs terminate at a patch panel in my basement where I have dedicated 8 ports to connecting the same coloured wires together.  My sensors would give me temperature for Bed1, Bed2, Bed3, Main Bath, Living Room, Family Room, Garage, Pool, 3 season room.  I am thinking with this many sensors over a distance I am going to need seperate power and not parasitic power - anyone any experience?

Users / Power Down in the event of a power outage
« on: December 19, 2011, 07:44:24 pm »
My core is currently attached to a small UPS so that when there is a power outage the core remains live.  This solved the initial issue I had which was to stop my core going down during lighning storms in summer when the power would be out of under a few seconds.  However, if the power is out for over 10 minutes then my core abruptly shutsdown and bad things can happen.

I have thought of a few ways to overcome this:
1.  Hardware - buy a UPS with a USB port that will inform the PC if there is no Power (Some APC models do this)
2.  Software - is there a way LMCE can look at an 'appliance' (MD, TV, Reciever, externally powered Z-wave dongle, etc) that should alway be 'connected' (RS232, Ethernet, USB etc) and if it isn't there then wait 5 mins and then power down? with the MD it must send a wake up over LAN first, I guess. 

How are others approaching this?

Users / Alarm Clock from UI2
« on: April 28, 2011, 06:13:37 pm »
I have an MD in the bedroom running UI2 and would like to be able to switch on the alarm from the UI2 on screen orbiter.  This is done using the sleeping menu from UI1 but I cannot see how this can be done from UI2?  is this functionality missing from UI2?

In an earlier thread, help was requested closing out tickets by confirming they are fixed or not applicable anymore.

I took a look at the ones I opened accompanying some device templates I created and they are still open and I cannot close them, therefore I thought I would start a thread for anyone who also opened a ticket or knows of one that needs closing because it is not applicable or fixed.

If the Devs would prefer this to be handled in a different way or in a different section of the forums feel free to let me know or move it/change it.

Please post your ticket number to be closed and how these were tested:

Users / Bluetooth Dongles
« on: December 02, 2009, 03:44:09 am »
I have tried 2 different Bluetooth Dongles and both have problems the first shows up and finds the phone but does not send out the right messages (according to Hari after I sent him one).  the second (my latest attempt to get this working) does not even find phones or anything.  The second device is which says it works with Linux, I tried what the reviewer stated.

Any ideas on how I can get the second device working or can anybody send a link to one they know definately works?
