Well @alex_leiva, @pstuart is right on the money.
The only work around at the moment is to add a third party “proxy”. I have some hackery using NodeJS that I have done some testing with - but it is far from a solution - and I don’t even really consider it a work around.
The idea of having a service running on a PC to do this is not pleasing at all.
I am doing some testing with a PC1 from Push Controls - it is called a BC1 by BitWise Controls everywhere else except Australia and SIngapore. I am fairly sure you can use HTTP calls to trigger serial and IP Sockets events on the device.
In itself - it is also not a solution I like at all. But, it is a bit of a work around to achieve basic functionality in a more robust manner then a service running on a PC.
I need sockets for more than just the iTach devices - I want to integrate with a Ness (Elk outside of Australia) M1 panel. That is an intensive two way conversation - but could add incredible functionality if it were only possible.
