Re: Can't launch script from Netwatch

I have the same issue with netwatch on v6.42.1 (current).

Not able to write global variables by netwatch up or down event and scripts will not be launched.

Re: v6.39.1 [current]

To view current channel of the interface in <cap interface list, you have to enable the hidden column "current channel". The fields in column "channel" only have entries, if channel is set manually.

Re: The Dude Ver.6.32.2 with Agent setup

The old environment is currently still running until the new setup is working correctly. So, I can use the new version (server on a chr and agents on two arm's) for testing.

Just would like to know if anyone else is experiencing the same agent behaviour with the new dude versions?

The only way I could make it work, was that I made a comment to each Interface (only virtual AP's) with the actual SSID. So, then I could disable this SSID on all devices with one scheduler task. /caps-man interface disable [/caps-man interface find comment=myssid] But this should not be the solutio...

We currently have 4 new wAP ac devices running in different locations managed by CAPsMAN on a CCR1036 Router. After many tests and a lot of trouble I came to the conclusion that the wAP ac's may have huge problems on the 2.4ghz module due to the hardware design of their internal antennas. First I en...
