Remotely view logs

I understand that you can remotely view logs using pigetmsg. However this solution does not work for me as the interface is on a controlled network that only allows outbound traffic. I would like a way for the interface node to be able to push out...

Improved handling of PI Write failures

Provide a configuration option in UniInt interfaces, to enable shutdown of the interface if it consistently receives error messages when attempting to write to PI. Recently had an interface successfully connect to PI but not achieve write access t...
