Tell OmniServer how to talk to your devices
OmniServer uses a "protocol" to communicate with your device. What is a protocol? Essentially, it's a collection of patterns of bytes or characters used by the device to communicate.
Let's think in terms of two different types of basic transactions:
- Sends from OmniServer to the device
- Receives from the device to OmniServer
So the first step is knowing what pattern (i.e. the protocol) the device uses for sends and/or receives. Most device vendors provide documentation that will detail this type of information and that documentation can be used to tell OmniServer how to communicate.
