Avimesa Virtual Device Client (x86_64)

This project contains an Avimesa Virtual Device Client for Linux in a binary form (x86_64) that can be ran from command line.

1. Overview

The Avimesa Virtual Device Client (VDC) allows one to easily use a Client on most Linux distributions to simulate or even implement devices.

Using the VDC, one can fully utilize the Avimesa Device Cloud from a Linux command line with JSON.

2. Prerequisites

  • A valid Avimesa Device Cloud Device ID and Authentication Key
  • A Linux Host (x86_64, Debian, CentOS, RHEL7, kernel 3.10+) with internet access
  • Text editor to modify a JSON file

3. Usage

Checkout the client:

git clone https://github.com/Avimesa/virtual-device-client-x86-64
cd virtual-device-client-x86-64

Run via command line, where you need to provide a valid Device ID (-i) and Authentication Key (-a)

./avmsavdc -s devclserv001.avimesa.com -p 36360 -j data.json -i 00000000000000000000000000000000 -a 11111111111111111111111111111111

If successful, you’ll get a JSON response. If no response, there is likely an issue with the Device ID and Authentication Key.
