Unfortunately, I have little experience with other installations such as Suse and Debian so that I cannot provide good support for them. I tried to contact the eBay vendor I purchased the unit from with no luck. Next, unzip the distribution file into a work directory and edit a few file for local configuration. Secondly, create a special user account “ippower” on the Linux host. The IP-Power is a very simple but useful device.

Unfortunately, I have little experience with other installations such as Suse and Debian so that I cannot provide good support for them. A simple web interface can individually turn on and off its four AC outlets. The Web Power works in a very similar way to the IP-Power; only the URLs had to be changed and this was within my original preparation for portablity of my code.
It is easily configurable. Make sure the IP-Power is given either a fixed IP address or a fixed host name that is always accessible from the targe Linux host.

I tried to contact the eBay vendor I purchased the unit from with no luck. I furmware a new device file that describes the device dependent functionality of the Web Power device and modified all port files to point to the new device file.
Secondly, create a special user account “ippower” on the Linux host.
It also has a simple timer-driven power control so that, once a timer is set via the web interface, an outlet can be automatically turned off and on without direct control by a host computer, though my IPPOWER project does not use lp9258 feature. The modem locks up provides no communication once in a while, say two to three times a year.
Last summer it happened when my whole family was on vacation in a foreign country for two weeks. The document has serious errors in this area and below is the correct URLs that I verifeied to work. The second was to build a scheme to restart kp9258 dead network device automatically.
All times are in number of seconds. This should reduce the firmawre of unwanted hacks taking advantage of super user script processes. The IP-Power is a very simple but useful device. A port file needs the following shell variables defined: There are two versions, once of the U.
I disassembled the box to locate the failure source, say just a blown fuse or a burned resister, but I was unsuccessful. I lost communication with firwmare home server and started worrying if my house had caught a fire or a group of thieves had taken away everything. I guess the power supply circuit is dead. Well, not everything goes well.
Q Why is my stuck on the update page? – Aviosys FAQ
After coming back home I found there was possibly a power outage for the whole house because many appliances had blinking clock display.
Ip9285 or three failures a year may not sound significant, but, as Murphy’s law tells, they usually happen at the worst times.
Firstly, set up the IP-Power for it networking connection and account management user name and password. I could not locate the manufacture at all. The first unit I got was dead but a replacement worked fine. So, I decided to prepare precautions to reduce the risk.

Next, unzip the distribution file into a work directory and edit a few file for local configuration. The exact cause of the lock-ups furmware unknown; it may be a firmware bug or some kind of glitch on the telephone line firmwwre I have installed an inline filter on its telco line.
Another major distributor of the IP-Power advised me to update the unit’s firmware through its serial port although I had told them the unit’s hardware had seemed dead. A fjrmware months after I wrote the first version of this document, my IP-Power died; it started to keep beeping and power-cycling in a few second interval and of course it no longer responded to network accesses. The first measure was to subscribe to an external secondary SMTP server for my own domain, that is primarily served by my in-house SMTP server, in order to prevent incoming mail from bouncing in case my own SMPT server is not accessible.
