  • ADDED: eWON can now be configured to request authentication to change IP address using eBuddy (you need eBuddy>1.8 to use this)
  • ADDED: WEB SERVER: support of Access-Control-Allow-Origin header echoing back the same origin that was sent or *
  • FIXED: WANMGT: If the "Connect WAN required to reach" is triggered just after the close of the PPP connection, then eWON try now to establish the connection again.
  • FIXED: ABLOGIX IOSERVER :selection of bit 31 of DINT tag types is now working
  • FIXED: SMS: not well formatted SMS are now erased from the SIM card
  • FIXED: SMS: TAP PROTOCOL: eWON wait to receive a>CR> to ensure compatibility with old TAP servers (prior to version 1.6)
  • FIXED: EXPORT: Supported size of the entries of the Historical table has been increased to 8Kbytes to avoid export failures due too buffer too small
  • FIXED: ABLOGIX ioserver: it is now possible to read a register of type real
  • FIXED: eWON ioserver: AI tags are now working on the eWON 4002

6.0s0

    • ADDED: eWON now supports Integer and Dword Tag types.
      • Until now, eWON only handled Boolean and Analog (Floating point) tag types. Storing all tag values into 32-bit floats has some major disadvantages like a loss of precision for big integer values or that the 32-bit value cannot be used for binary flags. Now, during Tag creation the user can select between following formats for the Tag display and storage : Boolean, Integer, Dword, Floating point or Automatic. When the "Automatic" Tag type is selected, then the IOserver recommended type for the specified tag will be used. Note: The new Tag types Integer And DWord are currently not supported by the viewON Editor and by the eSync Data Management system. New software releases will be foreseen to allow to handle the new eWON tag types.
    • ADDED: eWON supports now Tag Quality.
      • The quality is a new information field that comes with the tag"s value, giving indications about how reliable and recent the displayed value actually is. It was added because it was not easy to know if a tag was read correctly or not. In case of problem, the value of the tag was set to 0 or left unchanged, which in most cases could be an acceptable value and thus not obviously indicating an error. Now, the quality of the Tag value is displayed on the View I/O page and also stored into the historical data export files. Detailled information can be found here: http://wiki.ewon.biz/@api/deki/files/660/=KB-0039-0-EN-(Tag%2bQuality).pdf
    • ADDED: The $dtHL (Historical logging) now supports the $fl exactly the same way $dtHT does. This feature applies to text and binary format.
      (It is now possible to extract the historical logging data for a group of tags. Before this version only exporting one Tag or all the Tags was possible)
    • ADDED: eWON can now be configured to request authentication to change IP address using eBuddy (you need eBuddy>1.8 to use this)
      (Until now, using eBuddy, the user was able to change the eWON IP address without identification. Now, if the option is enabled on the eWON, the user must have "Change Configuration" rights to allow the IP address modification of the eWON using eBuddy. http://wiki.ewon.biz/index.php?title=_&curid=1114 )
    • ADDED: In Comcfg.txt, a new parameter called "KillLAN" has been added for the very special case where you need to close the eWON LAN interface forever. In case this parameter is set to 1, you will need a Level 2 reset the return it normal (or through WAN interface if available).
    • ADDED: WEB SERVER: support of Access-Control-Allow-Origin header echoing back the same origin that was sent or *
      (This allows to display eWON info on a Web Page which uses a redirection to the eWON)
    • ADDED: A "hidden" user right with value 2048 has been added to the existing set. This right only allows user to downgrade (with dewonfwr.edf), but not to download an ewonfwr.edf file.

 

Data Management improvements:

    • CHANGED: The data management menu is now enabled in every eWON having the historical logging feature.
    • ADDED: When on alarm is defined in Data Management, the eWON will trigger a DM transfer if one of the tag belonging to one of the group defined in DM config enters the alarm state.
    • ADDED: Filter feature for data management is working now. It is possible now to filter on Tag Groups A, B, C or D.
    • FIXED: DMSync could not transfer data to VPN with a GPRS modem because VPN was not established before the transfer started.

 

ADSL Modem improvements:

    • ADDED: Basic command SETSYS PRG,"ADSLRST",1 has been added to force a reset of the ADSL modem.
    • ADDED: in INF export block, the "ADSLLocRemSNRTxt" and "ADSLUpDnSpeedTxt" have been added to provide the Signal noise ratio and the upload/download speed for ADSL
    • CHANGED: ADSL status is now monitored even if there is no user or password configured.
    • FIXED: no need to reboot eWON any more to take ADSL configuration into account.

 

Fixes:

  • FIXED: When HSDPA modem needed to be hard reboot, the hardware reboot function was inefficient.
  • FIXED: In the SNMP IOServer, if the same OID existed with different IP addresses, the IOServer was not working correctly.
  • FIXED: MDEX VPN configuration was not saved correctly to comcfg.txt
  • FIXED: S7200 IOSERVER: TagStatus with the destination at the TagLevel is now supported
    Ex: "status,PPI,4" or "status,PPI,5" is now accepted
  • FIXED: UMTS modem could be lost in case an invalid comcfg.txt was downloaded in the eWON (requiring tricky VCOM operations to recover modem)
    This will avoid the UMTS modem detection problem as described on Q&A: http://wiki.ewon.biz/index.php?title=_&curid=1075
  • FIXED: FTP: restore of config files containing variables with values length higher than 2048 bytes is now supported The restore of a Backup on the eWON could fail, if the backup contained long VPN keys.
  • FIXED: FTP server: LIST command is now working when using GPRS The FTP directory list delivered by the eWON was cropped when a slow connection was used.
  • FIXED: anonymous connections to FTP server using eWON FTP client were impossible
  • FIXED: WANMGT: If the "Connect WAN required to reach" is triggered just after the close of the PPP connection, then eWON try now to establish the connection again. eWON failed to establish the modem Internet connection if the connection was closed just a few seconds before.
  • FIXED: ABLOGIX IOSERVER :selection of bit 31 of DINT tag types is now working
  • FIXED: SMS: not well formatted SMS are now erased from the SIM card This will allow the eWON to receive new SMS (like Talk2M connection request), even if eWON received a wrong formated SMS before.
  • FIXED: SMS: TAP PROTOCOL: eWON wait to receive a>CR> to ensure compatibility with old TAP servers (prior to version 1.6)
  • FIXED: EXPORT: Supported size of the entries of the Historical table has been increased to 8Kbytes to avoid export failures due too buffer too small
  • CHANGED: IPSTACK: IPCP TIMEOUT has been set to 5 sec This timeout is applied during PPP negotiation. It has been increased from 2 sec to 5 sec. This can solve PPP negotiation problems on slower modem connections.

 

5.7s4

  • FIXED: S7200 IOserver: PPI MULTIMASTER mode was not working anymore on the eWONs with MPI port
  • FIXED: VCOM: add an extra parameter to configure vcom buffersize in order to improve vcom communication (eg: LOGO)
  • FIXED: WIZARD: cosmetic error: change error message to "Can not apply internet config" when an incompatible WAN LAN IP range is configured
  • FIXED: MPI: eWON was not recovering anymore automatically from the OFFLINE state when the go offline reason doesn"t exist anymore

 

5.7s3

  • FIXED: It was impossible to register on the network with a xx01CD with Quad band GSM (and SIM is PIN locked) - Since version 5.7s1

 

5.7s2

  • FIXED: When the MPI chip (in PPI mode) goes into "Offline state" due to an external condition, the eWON tries to restart it automatically.
  • ADDED: LAN, WAN IP compatibility: At wizard level check if a static IP is requested if range maches the LAN range and generate an error message. At interface activation level, refuse compatible ranges and save an error message in the events log
  • FIXED: HISTORICAL TABLE: When a filter is applied and no interval is specified for the historical table, the output time is specified by the records of the tags belonging to the filter
  • FIXED: BASIC: ON CHANGE: When a critical definition field value of a given tag is changed, the ONCHANGE basic actions are not loosed anymore. Furthermore SNMP publication field values are added to these critical field list. Finally, The IOMOD command returns now only TRUE when the tag value has been changed.
  • FIXED: SNMP IOSERVER: cosmetic error on config web page (OID may not be set to 32-bits but is limited to 16)
  • FIXED: ALARM: alam retrig and retry mechanism were not working correctly. Retrig mechanism is now permanent and may be put to zero (no retrig). It does only apply to ALM events
