We have just released v1.7.22 of the BACnet Test Client. In addition to extending the free demo, we have added the following features and improvements:
- Improved Performance test – shows some stats and can be run indefinitely, allowing you to load-test your device.
- “Stop on First Error” checkbox – allows you to run all tests and stop when an error occurs, this helps finding the bad packet in WireShark that much easier.
- Hide Tests – A right-click and “Hide” will hide a test, (to avoid stopping next cycle). Filters can be saved and reloaded for “burn-down” elimination of bugs
- Foreign Device Registration
- More descriptions in logfiles regarding what the test is doing, and what we expect to see.

We have started evaluating Mango M2M, by Serotonin Software, as an open source BACnet Workstation. So far, the BACnet “data source” seems to work OK, but it does not have the capability to register as a Foreign Device. This will limits its application in a lot of sites.
Further details about MangoM2M can be found at their website.

We found that on some machines that the BACnet Server would not respond. This was due to a “setup.msi” error, and this has been fixed. The source code remains unaltered, but the download “setup.msi” has been updated on the SourceForge website.

The BACnet Server project on Sourceforge has been updated. We have updated the software to use the very fine BACnet Stack source code from Steve Karg’s project, as well as added a button for One-Click downloads of an installable executable. All this can be found here:
Please feel free to comment and make requests for future enhancements.

BACnet Interoperability Testing Services, Inc has released a beta version of a free (open source) BACnet Server that runs on Windows computers. This software is aimed at developers starting to investigate the BACnet protocol. We hope that many users will contribute to the code base and establish a reference example of a BACnet Server device. The code is in C#, a computer language gaining in popularity that is easy to learn and to use. It is a complementary product to the (also free) “BACnet Browser in C#”.
The source code can be found at
