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 recommanded to use the HTTP protocol, the extensions do not always react properly to the M2M commands with older version
IP address and port

The default port numbers are: 9870 for M2M protocol and 80 for the HTTP protocol.
User and password
This connection settings configured to access the web interface of IPX800.

Configuration of the relays
The “Relay” tab is used to configure the relays that can be controlled using the driver.
Number of relays
This field is used to indicate the number of desired relays. It is not necessary to configure all the relays of an IPX800. It is possible to choose those that are useful.
For each relay the following parameters are available:
Number: relay number, as it appears in the IPX800 interface
Name: free text describing the role of the relay
Virtual: In the case of an IPX800 v4, indicates that the selected number corresponds to a virtual relay.
Active: if this box is unchecked, the driver will not be able to change the state of the relay, but only get its current state
- Redesign of the configuration dialog for better support of the different versions of the IPX800
- Upgrade of the library used to communicate with the IPX800
