I am looking to roll out the above devices on a Paxton Gate entry system that has a USB configuration setup that connects to a Net2 software application.
I have set up the Hubs on a static ip and attached the Virtual server Gl-mt300n-v2 via LAN connection...O can see the device and it finds the USB device as :-
Hub -usb device = Net2 USB/RS485 Convereter
Product: Net2 USB/RS485 converter
Vendor ID: 0x0403
Product ID: 0x6001
and it allows me to use the device...where it then adds this as a USB Serial Converter in the device manager.
However when i start the Net2 software it says it cant find the Gates/Devices......
I then connect the usb cable directly to the windows 10 machine....it initiates the usb device ( shows the same in the device manager) ...but now the software sees the device and gates.
I then remove the cable from the windows 10 machine and back into the Virtualhere hub....
Whilst this is being carried out the usb to software shows disconnected...then once the Hub sees the device and is in use by me ...the software then says reconnected and its all good.
The issue is it looses the connection once we close the software or restart the computer...which defeats the objective of having remote USB hubs controlled by 1 PC...(we need to power off the PC to move away from Gate USB).
I think its all in the initialisation of the USB device and may need to have some sort of custom event handler ? ...I am seeking to deploy 3 or 4 of these inityially Can you advise.
If you need any information to assist i will be happy provide.
