I would like for the 3706 to initialize the 2612As and load functions on each one. This will allow me to maintain just one piece of software. The three 2612As will all be configured exactly the same and have exactly the same functions loaded on them. What is the easiest way to transfer the functions to the 2612As? Can the function reside on the 3706? I think that I remember reading that a function that is loaded on one device connected via TSB is automatically available to all devices connected via Tsplink. If this is the case, I would not need to transfer the functions.
If I do need to have the functions reside in the 2612As runtime environment, what is the best way to transfer them? I was thinking of a script on the 3706 that would create the function on each 2612A by sending it each 2612A a chunk line by line. Maybe this could be in a loop with the node number being a variable since the functions are going to be the same for each. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
One other comment... Conceptually it's understandable why you want to use your one 3706 as a master and your three 2612As as slaves. However, if speed is important to you I would generally recommend that you use one of the 2612As as a master because they have faster processors than the 3706. The exception to this would be if you will be using many more 3706 commands than 2612A commands. In this case, keeping the 3706 as a master may be the better a choice. Since you can use the same program code either way, it should be fairly straightforward to compare the throughput of both configurations if that is important to you.
