The reason i want LinuxMCE to read responses from NUT, I want to use LinuxMCE as a whole house solution the brain if you must, have it take care of devices and report to me what happens and when.
Yes i can have NUT and many types of software talk to the other computers directly but then i would have so many things to keep an i on, if LinuxMCE was the goto like i see it as, (dcerouter) then i only have one thing to take care of.
yes scripts may not be the best way to do these things but i can do scripts i can research them and write them, but i can't do that with LinuxMCE it is programming that i cant get my head round and there is only the wiki to go on.
with my script I can shutdown/control any devices that i can ssh into, all device are logged to LinuxMCE in DHCP now that would be brill for me if instead of listing all devices with an IP/MAC it would list them with a device number like it does everything els, (like when you PXE boot that device is given a number).
Lets think of a computer like a bluetooth phone, when linux detects it, it will ask what device it is then send software (orbiter) to the device etc, it picks up the IP of the computer then knows the OS and sends the orbiter.
the orbiter would include SIP and messaging, and ability for the core to control it like shutdown/reboot, in linux run update manager etc, the core would also be able to use the input devices on said devices.
Now i'm sure you could agree with the above being a really good idea, and also tell me it would be a nightmare to program so i am attempting to try and do some of this by means of script because I can't program and i'm not gonna ask you to do it for me.
to you it may seem crazy to say duct tape it but to me, its away to learn and get good at scripting I'm thinking i might need to use python for some scripts. (I AM A NEWBE)
