I received my new plm 2413U, after installing drivers, and configuring castle with com port and address is there anyway to verify communication? I have tried to add three x10 devices and not had anything functioning. I did install homelinc, setup an x10 proved connection to plm and full functionality of x10. I stopped homelinc and restarted castleos service but still cannot get a single light to turn on.

I have no error.xml and am attaching the view log screenshot. Should I use address of C2 for x10 device, or is there a different format.

Hey Eric! It looks like CastleOS is not able to contact the PLM; the most likely cause is the COM port listed in the configuration.xml file is not the COM port the PLM is located at. Can you confirm each of these values? You can find the config file at C:\ProgramData\CastleOS\CastleOS Core Service\Configuration.xml. Also, please upload the errors.xml file located in the same folder. We'll get this running for you today!

Yes the configuartion.xml did have the wrong com port. Not sure why, I did pick Com4 during install. But I am able to communicate now. Is there a good resource to know which of my X10 devices support i1,i2 and i2CS. I have dozens of X10 lamp and appliance modules purchased over the years. Also does i1 or i2 determine if a module support bi-directional status, or not?

i1, i2, and i2CS are Insteon devices. For X10, when adding a device, select X10 from the protocol list. It does still use the Insteon PLM to transmit X10 signals, however.

Also, when adding an Insteon device, the Insteon version (i1, i2, i2CS) is automatically detected by CastleOS.
