I’m just starting to learn about the XBee and Digi products. I have two XBee Pro modules on seperate boards with a USB connection. I can use X-CTU to each one and when I use ATND on one it reports the high and low serial numbers of the other board.
However, when I go to try Remote Configuration, and try to discover the other module, there are no items listed in the window. I do however get a “~…NDc” on the X-CTU terminal connected to the other module. Also green LEDs light up on the board so it appears that the modules are communicating.
I also have a ConnectPort X4 that I’m trying to use. When I go to the XBee network view, no nodes are listed except for the ConnectPort node.
I would guess I’m not setting some parameter allowing disovering of the XBee Pro modules, but I haven’t figured out what it is.
I assume that the modules are Series 1 with firmware for 802.15.4. Also the modules are in AT command mode since that would explain the “~…NDc” you get on the remote node.
AT command mode is also called ‘transparent’ mode as anything that goes into the serial port is send the node in the DH/DL address. The DH/DL should be set the the SH/SL of the other module.
To do a Remote Configuration the local module must be in API mode. Then a properly format API frame must be send into the serial port. This is all detailed in document 90000982_B. There is also a lot more information in these forums covering the details of API frames.
