    Hi LG_Giulia,

    the official (?) documentation (http://www.myopen-legrandgroup.com/…/download.aspx , page 8) says to use *99*9## to get into a command session.

    Now I wonder: what is the difference between *99*0## and *99*9## ?

    Hi dchramcow,

    you need tell your terminal emulation software to "flush" the characters you typed so far (which reside in a local buffer) to send them out as is. That's what the ASCII control code EOT (end-of-transmission) is for.

    I cannot tell you what has to be done to putty to do that. All I can tell is, that in case of running plain old "telnet" on a Linux/Unix machine, you just have to hit Ctrl-D, which translates into EOT.

    uncheck the local echo and local line editing options in the putty configuration

    So sending the commands with CTRL + D instead of ENTER fixed PuTTy exiting by itself. Thank you so much guys.

    But I still can't get the F454 to listen to my commands, I can get my test lights to turn on and off through the web portal/server just fine, but I can't get them to turn on/off through PuTTy.

    The couple of lights I'm testing are:

    #1 Area: 8 Light Point: 6

    #2 Area: 8 Light Point: 7

    Those two are on Local Bus #1.

    And these are the commands I'm sending (I do send *99*0## first):

    #1: *1*1*86##

    #2: *1*1*87##

    What I'm I doing wrong? is there a setting I need to change on the F454?

    Did you open the IP range in the F454

    This is what I have enabled in my F454:

    if the ip range is not opened; the F454 answers the *99*X## command with a challenge request… you can answer this challenge with the proper response (theres an algorithm using this challenge and the open password)

    So I did manage to control the lights I wanted through PuTTY, what did it was that I was typing the Local Bus as 1 instead of 01.

    The command that ended up working was:

    *1*1*86#4#01## and terminating the command with a CTRL + D.

    Now, what would be the right way to send CTRL + D on an ASCII command through a Home Automation Controller like Crestron? I can't type in Hexadecimal because the connection would terminate because Open Web Net only accepts the following characters:

    0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, *, #

    So how would I send/terminate these commands through a Crestron controller?

    where = 86 or am i missing something ? So, your light On would be

    who=1 for lights , what=1 for on, where =86 for A=8 Pl=6

    *1*1*86##

    That would be true if I had that light on a private riser, but since I have it on a local bus #1, I have to send those extra parameters.

    The command is correct, I've tried it many times through PuTTy, but I can't get it to work through my Crestron Controller.
