Re: Webserver

I have done this long ago, so not sure about the right steps, but I think you should install Eventghost on your computer and add the webserver plugin to Eventghost. Then, as stated before, you should be able to issue the mentioned URL (i.e. the IP address of your PC and the test values of choice), w...

Re: Webserver

If your webserver runs on pc with ip address 192.168.1.40 then sending http://192.168.1.40/?test&TEST from a browser should give you a http.test in eventghost with TEST as payload, I think.

Re: Retain global variables on restart

If a number of clever people on this forum have already chewed on the subject for some time and this is what they came up with, I doubt it could be done much simpler or better.

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

Although it may be ugly, I think the workaround with the '&&' will be easiest and 'future-proof'. If there are no other negative side-effects, I will keep using this. 1 To fix your udp sender if possible. I might bring up the issue in the EIBPC forum sometime. However, I would be quickly out of argu...

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

YOU ARE THE MAN!!!! Your suggestion to try and add && to the end of the text string in the EIBPC did the trick!! Now, when the message is received in the event log of Eventghost, it looks different than when dragged over to a macro in the Eventghost Tree, see below: Received in EventGhost event log:...

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

Maybe you can also try to recreate the problem you described using a blank tree. If you are able to recreate the problem you can send us more info without the issues of privacy and the confusion of all your other macros and plugins. Send us some logs and before, during and after xml files. Good ide...

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

I am back and 2nd logfile attached. Some explanation: I started Eventghost at around 10.36 with XML file 'aa', which is a backup file that does not have problems. This started OK, although the log file shows some errors at startup (twice the message "SystemError: wxEntryStart failed, unable to initi...

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

Although I saw some errors in the file, I am not sure if it was using the 'right' (wrong) Eventghost XML file where there is the culprit UDP command in the Eventghost tree.
I have to go out now, but I will retry later in the afternoon and post a new log if needed.

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

I just ran the command line debug option and found the log file at:
C:\Users\Asus\AppData/Roaming\EventGhost

File attached

Hope you can see some useful things in there :D

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

And another observation: After I receive the error messages in the log and exit Eventghost, it does not close properly. The eventghost Icon stays in the right bottom corner and I then have to use taskmanager to kill the still running Eventghost Process. After I have done that, it is not longer possi...

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

Thank you very much for contributing in the investigation! I use a small proprietary computer in my KNX home automation system that has a built-in feature to send UDP commands. I can program this proprietary computer (the EIBPC by Enertex http://www.enertex.de/e-eibpc.html ) in such a way that when ...

Re: Network Broadcast Sender / Listener

I have been using the Broadcaster plugin for years successfully to generate commands within Eventghost to trigger various actions. Settings were the default ones. Since recently I have started sending UDP commands from an another computer to the Eventghost computer. I can see the UDP commands appear...

Re: Windows 8.1 EventGhost Headless Machine

Thanks. It looks like your solution does use little power indeed. I am actually using a similar setup as you, but with an old Asus EeePc that has a hard time keeping up with all the stuff that I have running on it. For instance, I have views from 4 IP camera's collected through a software program an...

Re: Windows 8.1 EventGhost Headless Machine

Thanks for the useful information.
Have you measured the watt-power consumption of this always-on solution?
