what is "MY_GATEWAY_CLIENT_MODE" good for?
I had a look around the MySensors files on the search for a way to make my ESP activly send it's data to an IP adress.
I found the
MY_CONTROLLER_IP_ADDRESSfeature wich looks promising. If defined, it makes the gateway work in client mode. What exactly does this mean? Can I still connect to it with MySController or other Controller for debugging? Or will it exclusivly send it's messaged to the specified IP and ignore everything else?
Client mode is a new feature where the gateway connects to the controller (the opposite of the "normal" behaviour where the controller opens the connection to the gateway).
I don't think many controller supports this option yet though.
yeah I will try it in some way. Pimatic controller only supports serial gateway. Maybe I can use ser2net tool to bind incoming tcp traffic to a serial device, where pimatic can read it.
But will it still be possible to access the gateway with an other controller as standard ethernet gateway?
@hek could you please confirm whether I can still connect to a gateway in client mode with normal TCP connection (and have 2 controller connected for debugging)?
No, you cannot.
