Dem@care system configuration
1 – Network configuration :
To have a network connection between both machines, you need to :
- Set up a static IP address on the Windows machine (Dem@care system) to IP = 192.168.0.1/24.
- Set up an IP address on the Fedora machine (CAR component) to the same network (e.g. 192.168.0.3/24).
A – Set up the IP for the PC :
On Windows machine :
Open Network Connections in the Control Panel (or directly ncpa.cpl),
Then, edit the properties of your Network Interface (e.g. Local Area Connection) :
Use the following IP address for the IPv4 Properties :
IP address : 192.168.0.1 Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
On Fedora machine (As root) :
To set up an IP address until the next reboot :
ifconfig p1p1 192.168.0.2 ifdown p1p1 && ifup p1p1
To fix the IP configuration, you can also edit the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-p1p1 with the following content :
DEVICE=p1p1 BOOTPROTO=static ONBOOT=yes IPADDR=192.168.0.2 NETWORK=255.255.255.0
B – Test the communication between CAR component and Dem@care system :
Connect directly the Windows machine to the Fedora machine by crossover cable ou by using a network switch.
Run the configuration by running the following command :
from the Windows machine :
from the Fedora machine :
ping 192.168.0.1 -c 4
The result should be different than 100% packet loss.
2 – System configuration for CAR :
Edit the content of eu.demcare.services.cfg :
About the network configuration (line 22) :
##### ComplexActivityRecognition - CAR ##### # folderLocationCAR=C:\\DEM@CARE\\INRIA_components\\ # Put the IP and the port to access of the CAR computer ipCAR=192.168.0.3 portCAR=8989
About the CAR webservice (line 93) :
# CAR service #Tomcat #complexActivityRecognitionService.address = http://10.134.150.76:8282/complexActivityRecognition_Bundle-1.2/ComplexActivityRecognitionService #ServiceMix complexActivityRecognitionService.address = http://192.168.0.1:8181/cxf/ComplexActivityRecognitionServic
Once your system and network configuration is done, run Dem@care system :
We have run the DEM@CARE.bat executable in the ‘C:/Dem@Care’ folder on the Windows machine and we obtained these messages:
Make sure the parameters fit your system settings. Go to the configuration file in the downloaded packages i.e. /path_of_the_downloaded_rpm/ConfigFile_CHUNICE_EXMF_v2b/ and change the following:
- in appParameters.txt : if you installed your SQL database in a different PC than the PC hosting the CAR component, then change the dbHost from localhost (127.0.0.1) to the IP of the machine hosting the SQL database.
- in DescriptionBasedEventRecognition/EventRecognitionParameters.xml : change the parameter OperatorPluginPath content to /usr/local/inria/sup/extralibs. Set the parameter saveXML3File to false to avoid recording extra information trivial for Dem@Care users.
