PyCampbellCR1000 communication with CR1000 via NL201 and a pair of RF401A radios

PyCampbellCR1000 communication with CR1000 via NL201 and a pair of RF401A radios

Hello,

Is PyCampbellCR1000 able to communicate over a complex route? I have a
system with a CR1000 connected wirelessly over a pair of RF401A radios to
an NL201 device which connects everything to the internet.

The radios can be configured as PakBus aware or "transparent". In
transparent mode I am able to connect with the datalogger when the computer
running PyCampbellCR1000 is directly connected to the RF401A radio via
serial cable.

I have not been able to connect to the CR1000 when the route is TCP/IP to
the NL201, and then serial connection via RF with the pair of RF401A's in
*transparent* mode.

I have not yet tried this with the radios in a PakBus aware mode (since the
remote radio is not easily accessible for configuration).

Does PyCampbellCR1000 utilize PakBus addressing? If so I hope that
switching to PakBus aware mode on the radios might solve the problem, but
that will depend on being able to tell PyCampbellCR1000 the PakBus address
of the CR1000, and not just the IP address of the NL201.

Thanks for any advice, and thanks for developing this useful program!

Seth
