I had a very difficult time getting my EZSrve to force links into its internal PLM even though the commands to do so are documented – they appear unimplemented and non-operational and return an “Invalid XML” message. I tried this, thinking that this would make my broken macros start working. (I was able to get macros working if I did the normal linking sequence between the EZSrve and my light switch).
Can you share the XML you used?
In regards to the responder mode, we are probably going to implement that in the next version. The plus side is it does side step the problem with monitoring mode in the PLM so we receive the traffic, the downside is that it will effectively cut the link number in half (from 1024 to 512, since you need a controller and a responder link, assuming you have each device in a group).
