There is something in the E1.31 spec re a flag that signals that the sender is about to shut down. I think the frame with this flag set is sent 3 times. I'm not sure of the usefulness of that, other than it tells you that the shutdown is intentional.j1sys said:Rev 1.1 of software is a dumb repeater. If it gets a packet it sends a packet.
We are working on simple/fixed keep alives and timeouts that we believe are in the spirit of the specs and common world practices.
These simple versions should be ready for v1.3 code being released with the shipments of the DR4 and also to be ready for upgrading the DMXRen8.
At that time we will document the defaults and then start working on enhancements, including configurable options, for future releases.
