problems changing config files

Post by Pesho77 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 12:57 pm

So im changing config files and it hanging the settings and process 0 - 1 change but then it hangs, what am I doing wrong, so im still using firmware v 4.0 build 5cbda61, im attempting this via the bsc utilities the files are stored on a network drive if that makes a difference and the bsc 460 is connected via wifi not direct to the router.

Any advice please
Tia

Try just changing the Settings only.

Then Just Process 0

Then Just Process 1.

and so on. You could have a corrupt json file.

See which one is bad.

Trying using this version:

The one linked through the BCS seems to be older and no longer works properly.

I should point out that every thing else works just fine all outs and temp probes are working, so the bcs isn't broken.

Thanks Jon, but I cant get that one to work either ?

Im putting the ip of the bcs in the host with the Port no.


the .bin file is selected, block size left as default, the update firm ware on the 460 is set to the ip of the laptop the .bin is on ( I googled this), but the block# stays on 0 the bsc does re-set its self, so it is trying to do something.

What am I doing wrong ?

Sorry this should be easy

I don't know where you're referring to putting a host and port.

The TFTPD program binds to your local PC IP address and defaults to using port 69. Don't need to change any of that. On the BCS, you specify the IP address of your PC (the IP that TFTPD is bound to). The BCS then sends a request to that IP on port 69 for the file bcs460.bin (don't rename the file). Make sure the file bcs460.bin is in the same folder as the TFTPD app, or set the "Base Directory" option in TFTPD to the folder where bcs460.bin exists.

Check that your firewall is allowing incoming connections on port 69 for UDP.

Also, is your BCS on a wireless extender? Many of those are notorious for blocking UDP requests which are needed for not only TFTPD, but for the BCS locator.

I find this one the easiest to use:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/tftputil/

Sometimes I have to try several times before I get it to work.
