Tellstick: Not Connected

Post by UlfG » Wed Jan 03, 2018 10:43 pm

I installed OpenNethome server on my raspberry running Jessie according to instructions here: ... ation.html

I have connected a Tellstick Duo to one of the USB-ports. However, in OpenNetHome server
it says: Tellstick: Not connected in the list of Hardware. Pressing reconnect makes no difference.
The log says:
18.01.03 23:20:02 Tellstick failed to open serial port to Tellstick: /dev/ttyUSB0
18.01.03 23:20:02 TellstickPort$SerialDevice Failed to find COM Port: /dev/ttyUSB0

When I look at the properties of the Tellstick, there is only one Com port to choose from,
the /dev/ttyUSB0.

However, I also installed Telldus core and Telldus Center on the Raspberry, and from there
the Tellstick is fully functional, I can connect a Nexa device to it and control the device from Telldus Center.

Another thing that might need to be pointed out is that the Tellstick is not the only USB device that is
connected, I also have a 1-Wire USB adapter connected to the Raspberry. Possibly this causes some

How can I make this work? When I tried to add a new Tellstick device, the only COM port available
to choose from was COM14. That does not seem reasonable on a Pi...

Hmm, this usually works right out of the box... I can see two possible causes of problems:
1. You may have to unplug and then replug the Tellstick after having installed OpenNetHome, so the device driver is properly loaded.
2. Telldus installs another kind of driver for Tellstick, which is not compatible with the serial port driver that OpenNetHome uses, so you cannot have Telldus center installed when you want to use OpenNetHome - they cannot work at the same time.

Hope this helps
