FTP filename error
« on: November 16, 2006, 08:34:57 AM »

I've been using AHP with all macros for about a yeat. I have a fairly simple setup with a mix of cameras for monitoring and basic home automation. I connect remotely to check up on things while away. One capability that I previously utilized with XRay Vision was to periodically FTP a set of images to my web site. This allowed for easy image review from any computer. All I had to do  was point a browser to my web location. With AHP the FTP function basically works. The error is in that with each new FTP a unique file name, appended with time and date info, gets written to my web site. Therefore I cannot effectively use AHP to support a webcam. I have gone back and forth checking and unchecking the optional 'append time and date box' under preferences  X10 support acknowledged and reproduced the error over 6 months ago but have never followed up with an explanation or resolution. Does anyone have insight into the nature of the defect in AHP or any workaround? Thanks in advance for feedback.

There is a work around! ;) :D ;D
Depending on how many images you wish to upload at one time!
If you wish to do no more than four X10dispatcher will do it on its own if you wish to do more Dave (creator of x10dispatcher) has an addition which isn't incorporated into a release version of x10dispatcher yet called Aliaser hope this helps!
X10Dispatcher only works with the Autostills option in AHP!
Hope this helps! ;)

Thanks for the workaround idea Tuicemen. I should be able to give it a try while on some time off during the upcoming holidays.

X10Pro - I'd be interested in your feedback.
