RE: 💬 Building a Raspberry Pi Gateway
Well... I think I fixed it, let's hear it for documentation. Just when I had MQTT setup half way I got struck by the idea that there was some group flag for
configure. And indeed there is, setting
--my-serial-groupname=nodereddid the trick making
/dev/pts/Xowned by group nodered and let Node-RED connect to it, writing and reading works just fine now.
Thanks @gohan for your input I think I would have gone the ethernet route in the end if this last test had failed.
