RFLink for now only works on an Arduino Mega.
In the future we will have support for other platforms too.

I have a doubt, rflink work on qnap ?
Maybe no, because there are no drivers...

Yes, it works on various NAS as well..
On Synology it works with the Arduino.. might need to use an Arduino with CH340 based USB port. (see http://www.jadahl.com/)
In some cases when the system does not have much choice in serial drivers you might want to use a cheap FTDI serial port.
However, we have reports that it works on QNAP.

The rflink synology version which uses the HL-340 serial usb chip.
QNAP standard has no driver installed, but I build the ch341.ko driver for TS-xx9 platform, that is x86_64 platform.
Put it on your NAS on permanent storage so it survives reboots. /etc/config/usb would be a good location.
From console, issue: insmod /etc/config/usb/ch341.ko
That will load the driver and attach it to a USB device. In my case it is attached to ttyUSB2.
You can check with dmesg:

Code: Select all

[111848.472078] usbcore: registered new interface driver ch341
[111848.472473] USB Serial support registered for ch341-uart
[111848.472825] ch341 7-1:1.0: ch341-uart converter detected
[111848.486300] usb 7-1: ch341-uart converter now attached to ttyUSB2
Put the insmod command in your autorun.sh (google for info)
