I hope to update my CPUXA/TCP/IP suite (DMAX etc.) to CMax-2. What revisions to the serial line protocol (including internal addresses) have occured since CMax-1?
---
I notice that HomeSeer and SmartHome have the same access I enjoy with CMax-1; but, neither has open source on the server nor documentation for HOWTO.
---
I might do a TclHttpd (web server daemon) if there is any interest. It wouldn't be of use to me, but it might be of use to others in the community.
- The design target will be to use dynamic web pages generated by Tcl. Note: Tcl can call the scripting language of your choice for CGI processing.

Have been looking around for server iron. Found a nice "Epia mini system (uses the VIA MOREX 3688 black ITX case)" for $480. System includes all necessary hardware. 2.5" x 8.25 x 10.25". With Linux OS no need for keyboard, monitor, or mouse. Can run remote with VNC. Add access to a wireless base and ...

Just a note. I've been running CPUXA/IP since 1992 ish. as my primary HID (Human Interface Device). The Ocelot system is complete and independent of the PC stuff. I've been through power failures, a fire, and some other disasters and the Ocelot system has always recovered, as expected, by itself. I did have a blown capacitor (which Guy helped me with), but I had the space Ocelot swapped in and up and running in 30 minutes - never been able to do that with a PC :-(. The blown capacitor was pretty much my fault - I was running with too high a voltage and the heat from the regulator cooked the nearby capacitor after 3+ years of otherwise flawless service. The PC's have had their problems. I've had a mother board and an HDD failure. Each took a couple of days to get back up and running. There is no way I'm ever going to place home automation logic anywhere other than in the Ocelot! The stuff I'm working on is simply better human / Ocelot communications.

I am "bvntoys" with a new name :-)
CPUXA/IP has been implemented in Python. Project code name is "Panther" The server is done and I am working on the client.
---
The server code has been tested on Windows-XP, CentOS 5 (rhel), and Fedora FC-13. No reason it should not work on OS-X.
---
The new code is SMP (multi core) tolerant and uses less than 7% of a single core. Also 7 times more responsive.
---
I Have begun publish the documents on Google Docs, and as soon as I master Google Code (and subversion) I will publish the code.
