NI-3100 + TCP/IP Client

astahov.telesenastahov.telesen Junior MemberPosts: 8
Hello everyone,

I have some troubles with connection to TCP/IP Client by NI-3100.

The aim is to control IP-Camera (Pansonic AW-HE50SE) by sending telenet-string through NI-3100.

NI-3100's IP : 192.168.0.81
Panasonic's IP: 192.168.0.247

1. First of all I established connection with NI-3100 by Ethernet.
2. Secondly, I added this code into standart NetLinx Source File:
DEFINE_DEVICE
dvPAN = 0:3:0

~~~~~

DEFINE_START
IP_CLIENT_OPEN(3,'192.168.0.247',80,IP_TCP)
3. Thirdly, I compiled workspace, built Project and System, and transfered two files (*.tkn and *.src) to NI-3100.

But when I send command
send_string dvPAN, "'%command%'"

the telnet responce is:
Device Name dvPAN is invalid

The data-indicator on controller shows only INPUT data, but not OUTPUT.

Hope you can help me to find the solution of this problem.

    If you use iP_CLIENT_OPEN(dvPan,'192.168.0.247',80,IP_TCP)

    Are you s?re your connection is open?

    Use data-event online/offline to confirm it.

    Proper IP_CLIENT_OPEN statement: IP_CLIENT_OPEN(dvPan.port,'192.168.0.247',80,IP_TCP) I've got IP control working to those Panasonic cameras, I can share some code if you need.

    Also you are opening the socket in define start for an http port. Http typical isn't a maintained open socket, you need to open the socket every time you need to send a string so when you have a command to send you call ip_client_open, in the data event online handler you'll receive notification that the connection has been made and you use that to trigger your send string.

    It's a good idea to do online, offline and onerror events when doing IP programming:

    DATA_EVENT[dvIPDevice]
    {
    ONLINE:
    {
    SEND_STRING 0, 'IP Device ON-LINE'
    WAIT 100
    {
    <things to do when device comes on line>
    }
    }
    OFFLINE:
    {
    SEND_STRING 0, 'IP Device OFF-LINE'
    }
    ONERROR:
    {
    SEND_STRING 0, 'IP Device ERROR'
    SEND_STRING 0, "ITOA(DATA.NUMBER)"
    <IP_CLIENT_OPEN can run here to reestablish comm>
    }
    }

    Then you can get an idea what is happening.
  • DId you try to use the Jar Module, it will open the communication and keep it alive for you.

    You said telnet strings. Are you sure the strings go in on port 80 of the camera?
    IP_CLIENT_OPEN(3,'192.168.0.247',80,IP_TCP)

    I've never used a wait before sending once getting the online notification, with http you usually have 30 seconds before the server will drop the connection so a 10 second wait should be alright just not nescassary. I'd get rid of it since the quicker you send the sooner you can send your next command and 10 seconds is a long time to hold things up.

    That wait was to "do other things" after the device comes online. This was a device specific thing I just left in my generic example.

    Oh, guys! Thank you so much for you answers.
    I will check it in 5 mins.
  • astahov.telesenastahov.telesen Junior Member Posts: 8
    I've got IP control working to those Panasonic cameras, I can share some code if you need.

    It would be great! Can you send me link or archive/file in PM?
    Also, you can share it here, but I don't know is it allowed or not.

    }
    }
    

    But after master reboot there is nothing in Diagnostic and Notifications dialogs.
    Where should this messages (SEND_STRING) be showed?

    Honestly talking, I am absolutely not sure.

    Telnet into the master and type "msg on" to turn on diagnostic messages.

    Should IP-Device be showed in tree-list?

    Your last code snippet didn't show your complete onerror handler, do you have a send string like bwestlake posted in it?
    &#8203;
          SEND_STRING 0, 'IP Device ERROR'
    SEND_STRING 0, "ITOA(DATA.NUMBER)"
    
    note: that I didn't include the ip_client_open here because that will usually screw up the master, oprening, error, opening, error, etc forever, usually you can attempt to re-open after a 30+ second delay based on the error number​, most errors you just send a notifications and don't attempt to re connect.

    So in your diagnostic print out you should have seen your send_string 0 if you have one in your onerror handler and if your did you would see the error number and that would help to know what the problem is. Verify the camera port, IP and it's protocol, TCP or UDP. Also you should move the IP_CLIENT_OPEN out of define start and and put it under a button push or something so you can fire it when you're ready to observe the diagnostics.

    No, your IP devices won't show up in the tree, only AMX devices.

    I usually do my IP_CLIENT_OPEN 10 seconds after the master comes online.
    First I will create a CALL:

    DEFINE_START

    DEFINE_CALL 'dvPan_Start'
    {
    SEND_STRING 0,'dvPan_Start CALLED'
    {
    IP_CLIENT_OPEN(dvPan.port,'192.168.0.247',80,IP_TCP)
    }
    }

    Then you can use this when master comes online to start communications and in an error event or button event to restart communications

    DEFINE_EVENT
    DATA_EVENT [dvMASTER]
    {
    ONLINE:
    {
    WAIT 100
    CALL 'dvPan_Start'
    }
    }

    Plus this will give you time to get through lots of the master booting messages.

    I'll typically do the same if it's a telnet ish type of socket, something that maintains the connection but on occasion drops for what ever reason and for those drops I'll put a wait xx and then attempt to re-open the connection. With an HTTP though I usually wait until I add an outgoing command to my send Q which triggers my IP Open and then the online handler processes the 1st item in my Q, server responds, closes and in the offline I'll check if anything else is Q'd and is so open again and repeat the process. I'm working on an http/json device right now that also allows a cometd subscription socket that forces the http socket to maintain barring any protocal violation so there are some cases where http sockets can be maintained but typically not.

    In this instance I think the OP should make some global variable for all his values and in a button push or even after a flag variable in define_program call his IP_CLIEN_OPEN so he can change the parameters on the fly. Port number, IP address, UPD/TCP and then in the debug window change the variables and then set his flag making sure that he immediately 0's that flag. In diagnostics watch what happens. Posting a link to the camera's api might help too so we can take a gander for ourselves.

    I haven't had a chance to look at or interact here for a couple weeks, but I will still try to post my camera control code if you still want it.

    Yeap, it would be great!

    Also, I connected all the devices to another NI-3100. And that's it. Everything is working. Thank you!
    There are some problems with first NI-3100, maybe.

    And one more question.
    In TP4 I noticed that there is a function called "Recieve from Panel". What does it mean? So can I recieve the compiled project and recover it?
    Also, I have an old compiled project in NetLinx. Can I recover old project from NI-3100 without source code?

    Thank you

    Well, you can recover them in the sense that you can save the file and reinstall it if need be. But, without source, you cannot open/modify it in Netlinx Studio.

    This is an awful lot of code and it might be hard to follow because AFAICT, I code rather differently than most, and use structures pretty extensively for data storage I also use "Reverse Lookups" to re-match logical DeviceID's to the ports the devices use. After looling at this, I think there may even be a bug in the code, in that the part in DEFINE_START might be trying to open the camera connections when it does not need to. The camera connections are, or should be, stateless: it opens the connection, sends the command, lets the connection close.

    And one more question.
    In TP4 I noticed that there is a function called "Recieve from Panel". What does it mean? So can I recieve the compiled project and recover it?
    Also, I have an old compiled project in NetLinx. Can I recover old project from NI-3100 without source code?

    That's 2...
    1. Yes. As the onboard HELP in TPDesign will explain. You connect to the panel, click that button, and pick the filename and location. And the result is completely editable.
    2. As Eric says, all you can get is what's in it... if there is no source code loaded in the NI, you can only get the TKN for reuse, not editable.

    To get the TKN, you can't use typical FTP clients, as the stored program "prog.tkn' is in a hidden folder.

    Maybe I missed something in the discussion, but TELNET is port 23, not port 80 - which is HTTP.


    As mentioned earlier, HTTP (port 80) should only be opened and closed with each command.


    But if you are after TELNET, you can open and maintain the port (in theory).


    Anyway, just my two cents. I keep seeing TELNET discussed, but port 80 is not TELNET.


    Lastly, this - ///
    'the telnet responce is:
    Code:

    Device Name dvPAN is invalid
    ///


    Does not make much sense. The receiving device should never see the text 'dvPAN' (and it certainly can't if you're trying the wrong port).


    The text 'dvPAN' is local to the program in Netlinx only. It never gets transmitted (unless it's part of you %command% variable).
    Therefore, it has to be Netlinx reporting that error, which would mean the reference (dvPAN) is incorrect.



    Bottomline, get on the right port first.. change 80 to 23 if TELNET is what you really want. But if it's HTTP on port 80 that you need, you have a bigger fish to fry.
