Hi there. I wasn't sure where to post this, so if it's in the wrong place, feel free to move it.
I'm using flexihub to monitor an RS485 debug port on a custom embedded device. The setup I have is:
Device -> RS-485 -> FTDI USB converter -> Windows Laptop -> Flexihub -> LAN -> Windows PC -> Tera Term
I can connect fine and can see the debug information being displayed in Tera Term, so there's no problem there.
The problem I have is that the debug port on this specific device is also used to update the firmware and it's programmed to reset itself into bootloader mode if it sees ANY incoming character from the RS485 cable because it assumes that the software update software is trying to talk to it.
What I'm seeing when I connect with FlexiHub is the device resetting every now and then, so it's as if something is transmitting out to the device.
Has anyone experienced anything like this? Is there any kind of 'keep alive' signal being sent by the Flexihub software or driver that I need to disable?
Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
