I'm trying to move Honeywell XBS to new PC. Previuos PC(win98 OS) was using rs232-rs485 converter to communicate with XL50 controllers over c-bus(that was told to me by maintenance guy).
I have installed honeywell xbs to another pc which is running windows xp. But option for c-bus in local ports configuration is not available. I see "PC monitoring" and "XM100/XMD506" options. PC monitoring is disabled.
So is it possible to use pc serial port to work with C-bus under windows xp?
If i buy BNA adapter. Configuration for this adapter is made over web interface or it is needed to buy application(Care?)?
Also i have tried to run xbs under another pc with win98 installed. There was option for c-bus over local serial port. But xbs shows error if i select any of serial ports for c-bus communication: error from driver code -32. What does it means?
Any help would be appreciated.
