To check mControl with KNX Driver you can read and test according to the document below.

http://www.tekniskabyran.se/tekniskabyran/eng/products/mControl/Example test setup for KNX Driver 1.1.pdf

It shows how to set up the basic modules (Switch, Dimmer) and how you can in a easy way control your functionality.

Does your KNX driver work with the ABB KNX IP gateway, IG/S 1.1 ?

Is the communication protocol you are using KNXnet/IP ? This is an industry standard so I expect that the communication (packets exchanged) are exactly the same whether it is siemens, ABB or any other vendor. Is this valid?

Do you need that ETS software to setup you KNX over IP network? Or all I need to buy is:
1-KNX dimmer
2-KNX IP Gateway
3-Mcontrol with KNX driver

Thank you

ABB KNX IP gateway, IG/S 1.1 will work with KNXnet/IP.

Yes, the communication is the exactly the same and independent of vendor.

You need the ETS software to set up KNX products.

Consequently,
1-KNX dimmer
2-KNX IP Gateway (preferably a interface (without KNXnet/IP routing) which are cheaper and cost almost the same as USB or RS232)
3-Mcontrol with KNX driver
4- and ETS

Thanks for your reply, this clarified several issues. I will be attending a KNX training soon so I get good expertise on this matter.
I was trying to download the demo of the KNX driver, when I click the download button i get:
"Failed to Connect"
"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 88.206.167.114:81."

Can you please provide an alternative download link?

thank you

Please note that the application needs .NET 1.1 framework which usually not is installed by default in Vista.

Beside that this can cause the application to work properly, it can affect proper uninstall (error 2753).

You can download Windows Installer CleanUp in order to un install the application.

Please notice that you need .NET 1.1 installed.
