Cannot try it out

Hi,

I'm highly interested in purshasing a licence, but I want to try it out first. Not working yet.

The server is running on a synology NAS, I want to access the USB key from a debian buster virtual machine.
Here's what I did :
wget https://www.virtualhere.com/sites/default/files/usbclient/scripts/virtua...
wget https://www.virtualhere.com/sites/default/files/usbclient/vhclientx86_64
chmod +x ./vhclientx86_64
sudo mv ./vhclientx86_64 /usr/sbin
sudo mv virtualhereclient.service /etc/systemd/system/virtualhereclient.service
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl enable virtualhereclient.service
systemctl start virtualhereclient.service
/usr/sbin/vhclientx86_64 -t "LIST"
--> lists correctly my usb keys
/usr/sbin/vhclientx86_64 -t "use,NAS.12"
--> FAILED

How come ?
Thank you so much in advance !

No you cant use the console client in the free version of the server. You need to use the GUI client or purchase a license.

Oh ok. Fair enough, I'll jump

Oh ok. Fair enough, I'll jump then.
Apparently we need to input the licence in the purchase form ? How does it work for the console client ?

Sure you can use this command

./vhclientx86_64 -t "LIST LICENSES"

It will output a line like, for example:

Hub Name,s/n=asdfasdfasdf,1 device

Just paste that whole line into the https://www.virtualhere.com/purchase

Then when you get the license key you can enter

./vhclientx86_64 -t "LICENSE SERVER,key you received"

Ok now the client started ok,

Ok now the client started ok, but I cannot access the USB stick from the VM... I'm completely stuck.
I'm trying to use a zigbee stick on Home Assistant with zigbee2mqtt (cannot mount using the VM because it unmounts regularly, that's why I need virtualhere).
Any advice ?

Try this

Reboot the client pc just to make sure the dmesg and syslog is clean
1. In a terminal session, run tail -f /var/log/syslog
2. Then in another terminal run
./vhclientx86_64 -t "USE..."
3. Does the log show anything when you try to use the device? Like usb errors or something?

debian VirtualHere Client:

debian VirtualHere Client: Server ping timeout, shutting down connection 91...
debian VirtualHere Client: Could not connect to 192.168.0.XX:7575

thanks for the help, appreciate it

Seems like its not connecting to the virtualhere server. Are you *sure* you have access available and port 7575 is not blocked by a firewall.

E.g can you telnet to port 7575 on that server ip address and does it connect and characters show up after a few seconds?

forktiger
Seems like you're right but I

Seems like you're right but I deactivated the firewall so I don't know why it doesn't pass through... telnet also fails
Looking again what could block...

forktiger
Found it ! It's in

Found it ! It's in application portal of DSM that I had to open the port.
zigbee2mqtt still not working though... Headache is not over

OK "USE" the device via virtualhere then have a look in syslog , does it show the zigbee device connecting and a serial port device in /dev

Got this now :

On top of the Data stream corruption, why is it trying to connect to 1.2.3.4 ?

OK actually i see you are running on synology, so the virtualhere server runs on port 17570 so you need to open that port, not port 7575 sorry

So put in

./vhclientx86_64 -t "MANUAL HUB ADD,synologyipaddress:17570"

then type

./vhclientx86_64 -t "LIST"

and you should see your device listed there

Can you do that and it shows the zigbee device?

forktiger
Port already in use, I cannot

Port already in use, I cannot find by what

forktiger
Well probably by virtualhere

Well probably by virtualhere server ^^ I can't open the port but I tried anyway.
The device is listed. I did "use" and trying to connect zigbee2mqtt I've got a different error message maybe linked to a firmware problem IDK need to investigate a little bit more. I'll report here, thanks for your help

forktiger
No idea where this new error

No idea where this new error comes from. Seems to connect but I tried using another zigbee stick and result is the same...
It just doesn't work. Is it the NAS, is it HA, is it zigbee2mqtt ? I've posted on a few forums, will see in a few days if it resolves.

OK when you are using the zigbee2mqtt does it show up ok in the client VM when you type

lsusb

Can you see it there? And also can you see a serial device under /dev ?
