I have been playing around with Eventghost for several weeks. I have it set up to use the Generic Serial plugin and I have successfully gotten it to control my NAD T163 Receiver. I ended up having to play around with the formatting of the commands that NAD supplied and eventually got the correct hex format (looked nothing like what NAD had in their manual
My next step is to use NetRemote to send commands over my network via TCP/IP and have Eventghost receive those commands and respond with triggering the appropriate events.
I have been playing around with the Generic Plugin on the NetRemote side and have written specific code to create a TCP/IP connection and attempt to connect to Eventghost. I have read various posts in the forum and I have followed the format of the Network Send script on the Eventghost side. After I connect to the port, I send the string "quintessense\r". I have verified the string is being sent. My program then receives the cookie from Eventghost and then calculates the MD5 hash from the cookie and the password concatenated together. My issue is that Eventghost never responds to the "quintessence" string and doesn't pass anything back to my Generic Plugin module in NetRemote.
I am by no means an experienced TCP/IP socket programmer, however, I do have significant programming background and experience in many languages. I have basically been following examples and tips that I have found on the internet, the Eventghost forum, and the Netremote forum.
Anyone have any suggestions for how to get Eventghost to respond once I send the "quintessense" string to connect? I am probably missing something simple, but I need an assist to get over this hump.
I am currently testing NetRemote on my HTPC which is where Eventghost is also installed. My plan was to get it working on there and then test it on my HP IPAQ through my wireless network.
