LCDProc changes for NEXCOM - HELP!
I posted this under bounties, but thought I'd post it here as well since I haven't gotten too many bites.
Basically, I have a Nexcom 1088N8 and I'm trying to get the LCD to work.
For more details, check: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,15913.0.html
I've been working with Nexcom to get this working and they provided me with a modified version of LCDProc. I was able to get LCDProc to run in 1.2.2 Dev, but it will only display the LCDProc server info and I don't know how to connect it to pfSense to manage it or display any stats.
Below are links to the version of LCDProc Nexcom sent me as well as a picture of the LCD after we got the LCDProc server running.
Here is the additional notes they sent:
Then open the LCDd.conf and change
driverpath =/usr/local/lib/lcdproc/ (<- the folder stored lcd driver)
run server = LCDd
run client (dispaly) =lcdproc + parameter.
Then they also asked that we make sure we have this settings:
Can you make sure that the LPT port resource with command “dmesg | grep ppc0?
with Nexcom default LPT IO =378, you have to check it before install.
For our test condition = FreeBSD 7.0 with BIOS 007, and attached the .conf file which mode from this test to you.
What will it take (time/money) to get this version of LCDProc working in pfSense? I would like to be able to configure the LCD/LCM within pfSense so that I do not need to use the Dev versions of pfSense. If someone is willing to help, I don't mind to doing the leg work. If someone would like to do the leg work and get this to a point where I can configure this in the pfSense GUI, I'm more than willing to pay for it. (within reason, of course)
