    Run on a remote computer from homeseer?

    Hi,
    Can this plugin be installed on a separate computer from the computer that HomeSeer runs on?
    I know the MQTT server can be on a separate computer, could I set up the plugin on that computer and
    remotely connect it to Homeseer?
    I know this can be done with the RaspberryIO plugin, and I think Pete did it with the zwave plugin.

    I looked through the forum and the manual.

    Thanks
    Bruce

    taylormia in my plugin testing between Linux an Windows I do use the remote capability. I haven multiple api class computers and from an organizational perspective I can see doing cross-platform implementations. in other cases where the physical interface is not the ubiquitous IP then the remote connection may be mandated.

    Forgive my ignorance, what would be the reason to run the mcsMQTT plugin on a separate remote computer? To save CPU cycles on the main HS3 computer perhaps? If so, I didn't think mcsMQTT took much in terms of CPU cycles - at least on my HS3 Win 10 PC running on a 6th gen i7 Intel with 8 GB RAM.

    This should be able to be done with any HS3 plugin as that is one of the design objectives of HS3. Pass the IP of HS3 in the invocation line of HSPI_mcsMQTT.exe. If no parameter it defaults to localhost.
