TCP/IP to Freestyler

Post by tsenneville » January 31st, 2011, 8:46 pm

Greetings!
Can you help me? I have downloaded Freestyler, Freestyler TCP/IP Server and the TCP/IP app for my iPhone. I have established a connection between the iPhone and the Freestyler TCP/IP server but when I try to send a command to Freestyler (Toggle Blackout - FSOC002255) I get the following error message...
FSOC002255 Not a valid command! As the code I entered (FSOC002255) is one of the examples, I am at a loss as how to proceed.
If possible, could you sen me some examples of MACROs that I can try to see if they work.

Thanks in advance

Tony

Right click on the server app and click 'Test commands'. This is a list of the available commands.

I have a couple of questions about using TCP/IP remote with Freestyler:

1. I have figured out the communications protocol and have made contact with Freestyler from my iPhone but I am having a problem:
If I send a valid command (panLeft) to Freestyler as a Macro, all is OK and the Pan channel in the moving light changes value but when I
send the same command from the Terminal, the command is sent and captured by the Freestyler TCP/IP Server but nothing happens until
I send a Marco...any Macro, then the command is executed. Can you shed any light on this problem?

2. Is there a way to add more commands to Freestyler TCP/IP Server? I would like to be able to access all of the functions of a moving fixture.

1.

Use your devices Settings to toggle on CR, Line Feed or CR w/Line Feed can't rember which one thou!

2. No. Which commands do you require?

Greetings!

I have set the iPhone to generate a CR + linefeed as a Terminal Suffix and terminal command (ch 6 @ 100) still needs a macro sent after it to get any action. Any thoughts?
