Purpose

If you run into problems it might useful to run the forwarder in debug mode. It will output verbosely if connections are sucessful and data from the EmontX received as normal.

Steps

1/ Connect to the EmonWRT with SSH. Use Putty program if you are on windows. If using Linux just open a terminal. User is root and default password is admin.

2/ Stop the forwarder service like so

$ /etc/init.d/emonwrt stop

3/ You can now run the process manually like so:

$ /usr/bin/emonwrt_forwarder.sh -d

The forwarder will run and output debuging information in the terminal. You can stop it anytime using the Ctrl^C.

4/ You can then start the forwarder for normal operation again like so

$ /etc/init.d/emonwrt start
