Version of the IPX800: version 2, version 3 or version 4


The IPX800 can be controlled using two protocols: M2M (Machine to Machine) or HTTP (equivalent to a control by the web interface).

Note: In case of use of an X880 extension and a firmware version older than v3.05.46 it's recommended to use the HTTP protocol; the extensions do not always react properly to the M2M commands with older version.
