Re: Access to Trainboard site

Hi David, what do you want to tell us? Web sites will come and web sites will go. Maybe its autumn at trainboard.com Since trainboard.com is the prime site for DCC++ support I though you would want to know that it was inaccessible to me, and was possibly corrupted by some virus or another - so inac...

DCC++: Access to Trainboard site

I cannot access trainboard.com. I get diverted to generzapgeneric.idv.am (which does not appear to exist - I cant PING it).

I don't know who else to ask - but can you confirm that you can access it from RocRail. If not then the site could be corrupted (and not my iPad or MAC)

Thank-you,

David H.

Re: RocNet Protocol

Hello Walter, As the Arduino is intended to replace the RocRail Server - I assume it will be a Server. Your reference to rocnetnode-setup made me realise that I can use Rocview to setup/look at the Pi. Also this set up dialog should automatically pop up when a new node is detected - this does not ha...

Re: RocNet Protocol

Hello Walter, Thank-you for your reply, So, my understanding, is that RocNetNode is broadcasting a reply to an (assumed) request to Identify itself. I cannot find definitions in the Protocol for (amongst many other data elements): Class:1 (is this the Group code for a Command Station?) manuID: 70 nr...

RocNet Protocol

I am using an Arduino as a UDP server to send/receive UDP packets to RocNet on a RaspberryPi. There is no other hardware connected to the Pi I get the following packet from Pi: In decimal bytes The ip address is that of the pi Received packet of size 15 From 192.168.1.64, port 59536 Contents: 0:0:0:...

Re: Rocnet support

This thread was started because I want to implement a fully automated shunting yard, using an Arduino (or other such microprocessor), which is programmed to know how the yard is set up, where everything is placed etc. This is OK for a prototype proof of concept. The Arduino is connected to sensors -...

Re: Arduino as a Rocnet (co)master node

Hello Walter, Thank-you for the reference - it made me stop and think - BCM2835 is compliant with the I2C spec. clearly that means it does not implements all features. If my arduino acts as an 'automated signalbox or CTC' then it simply replaces manually operated buttons etc. which would be wired di...

Re: Arduino as a Rocnet (co)master node

Hello Walter, Yes. I want to run the Arduino as a (co) master on an I2C bus My intention is to use an Arduino as an automated CTC or SignalBox which controls a shunting yard, (not a fancy a shunting puzzle), with a Lead Siding, an arrive/dispatch siding, and few other sidings accessible from the Lea...

Re: Arduino as a Rocnet (co)master node

Hello Walter, Sorry about the confusion - I want to connect the Arduino to RocNet (using I2C (wire library) as a RocNet node, and to run it as a Master (along with the RaspPI) - hence the term co-master. I understand that I2C can run with multiple Masters The Pi will continue to be the Master node u...

Arduino as a Rocnet (co)master node

I want to use an Arduino (uno or mega) as a RocNet (I2C) node which can read/write to rocnet ports.

Any and all comments will be very welcome!

Thank-you

demo_manual_route

I am trying to open this example in Rocview on Mac OS X - the instructions say that it has to be opened with the batch file - but this is a Windows file so is not runnable on a Mac. If I open it as standard workspace rocview creates a new default plan.xml etc. The example is in wiki Contents/manual ...

Rocnet support

If I use Raspberry Pi and Rocket hardware does that lock me into using Rocrail. (as opposed to JMRI etc)

My guess is it does, and I can understand why, but I thought it would be wise not to make assumptions.

Yes my comment was a bit 'over the top' - but these examples are important Please accept my apologies for over reacting, but(after reading the above) ...

Re: Actions Example

Hi Tom It was here: http://wiki.rocrail.net/doku.php?id=action-example-en HI Robert, Unfortunately I am not (yet) a Rocrail user - I would like to be - I am trying to decide which 'system' to use - so I am doing as much research as I can, and this sort of experience does not give me confidence.
