I'm working on the configuration of the PSWS. I got to the point where I connected the Bodner and checking the status I get:

pi@PSWSGrape1:/home/pi/lbgpsdo$ ./gpsdo-status ?
--- Device Found  (id 1dd2:2210)

  Manufacturer:  Leo Bodnar Electronics
  Product:       GPS Reference Clock
  Serial number: DA39B7A546
  Firmware:      1.16
unable to open device

So it seems to find it (it is also in /dev) but can't open it. Is there something different about the two port Bodner that I have? 

Also, the configuration guide seems to stop at that point and I haven't located the rest of it although I am continuing to search.  

Thanks for any help,

Enic (?)

Thank you for the reply. I found another version of the configuration that was complete although I'm not sure where I read the first version. My GPSDO is hidraw0 and is recognized.  

I appreciate your response,
