Phidget 22 and remote devices

With Phidgets 21 if I wanted to open a remote device with Python, I would say:

Code: Select all

motorControl.openRemoteIP("192.168.83.106", 5001, -1, "")


With Phidget 22, I can open a locally attached device easily enough:

Code: Select all

MyServoChannel = RCServo()
MyServoChannel.openWaitForAttachment(10000)


But I don't know how to open a remote device with Phidget 22.

Help

Before opening, use:

Code: Select all

Net.enableServerDiscovery(PhidgetServerType.PHIDGETSERVER_DEVICE);
MyServoChannel.setIsRemote(1)

Thank you mparadis.

Seems I had a number of issues that were causing me trouble.

The main one was that I had to update my SBC2.

It was not enough to update packages in the web based GUI. I had to turn on SSH server and log in through SSH to run

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update


and

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get upgrade


as well as

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade


before I had the new Network Server on the SBC rather than just the old Webservice.
