The pro version is no longer available and has been removed from the AppStore.
All features of the previously available in the PRO version are enabled in the standard version.
Serial Tools / Re: feature suggestion for serial tools

Hi dumpington,
thanks for the feedback.
you are not the first user to come up with this suggestion.
It is already on the feature request list and will be implemented eventually.

Unfortunately time is limited, but I will get to it eventually.
Serial Tools / feature suggestion for serial tools
« Last post by dumpington on September 21, 2021, 01:15:22 pm »
Hello there, you guys helped me get my partially busted antique 68HC711e9 going again! - serial tools gave me a straightforward interface to the 'Buffalo monitor' program in the chip - it allowed me to inspect EEPROM addresses, modify config registers, dynamically swap baud rates and write individual EEPROM bytes - (for some reason they had changed in a recent blackout).  I had to hand copy byte by byte from the original .s19 and it was like a diagonal had been cut through the EEPROM memory locations in terms of flipped bits.  Anyway stoked it is all right now, appreciate this utility!

So the suggestion would be for a feature to load and transmit a file to the connected device. I realise this would probably be a significant amount of effort to do, but thought i'd chime my thoughts.

PS: shout out if you get a donation channel happening, i owe you a fiver:). D

EchoHam / Favorites?

Is there a way to save your favorite repeaters or groups?

If not, I would suggest that for any new updates ;)
(Not updating to big Sur until a new version is ready ;)  )

EchoHam / Re: 2.14 worked on Catalina, now doesn't.

I believe I may have found the problem:
In the settings/options it states "Unless you know what you are doing, please leave all items DISABLED (Default).
The 3 boxes you can check read:
DISABLE port check
Being that it said to disable them, I checked the boxes saying to disable them.

Going back and hovering over each box, it then said that it was NOT recommended to check the box  :o ::) :-\

Perhaps in future versions, the warning message should read "Please leave these items ENABLED (leave the box UN-checked).

I was going to delete the post, but figured this might help someone.

Finally got Echoham 2.14 to work on Catalina. But after closing and restarting, I can not connect to any repeaters or groups.
Not even Echotest.
I get no error messages, but everything I try to connect to times out.
Im guessing its just a setting somewhere.
Any ideas?


P.S. I CAN connect with my phone app.
Modbus Client (Pro) / Re: How to set the port number to 502?
« Last post by support on April 24, 2021, 09:20:08 am »
Prior to macOS V10.14 (Mojave) all ports below 1023 require root privileges for full access. A workaround solution is explained in the ModbusClient Help section.
From 10.14 onwards this restriction has been removed and you can simply set the port number to 502.
Modbus Client (Pro) / Re: How to read MODBUS register
« Last post by support on April 24, 2021, 09:08:01 am »
0x0FFD = 4093
If that doesn't work try +1 and -1, i.e. 4092 and 4094

Register addresses can be 0 based or 1 based, depending on Modbus device, hence try the addresses either side of 4093

Hope this helps
Modbus Client (Pro) / How to read MODBUS register
« Last post by songl1993 on April 24, 2021, 08:17:43 am »
Hi I'm trying to read a value using TCP/IP MODBUS, and the register number is 0FFDH. I put the start address as "0" just to test it, and got "illegal function". Then I put in 255 (decimal value of 0FF), and still got "illegal function".
What kind of input value do you accept for the start address on MODBUS CLIENT?

Thank you,
