"Lost" Domains
« on: August 08, 2013, 05:52:18 AM »
I thought I would start a list of the "lost" domains; domains owned and run by X10 and are now no longer working.   Please feel to add/correct any entries.

airsight.net     The free DDNS service provided by X10 to customers who bought their airsight cameras.

myhouse.x10.com    Remote Client for ActiveHome Pro's MyHouse plug-in.

activehomepro.com    Appears to be now owned by X10Pro (so there is hope?), but not working.

I fired up WireShark just to see what AHP was looking for on start up so here are a few more domains to add:
control.x10.com   AHP checks this on start up presumably to check registrations

software.x10.com AHP checks this on start up as well presumably to check for updates however that update function hasn't worked since 2.228
This is also the domain for getting plugins and AHP software, x10Pro-usa.com has this so editing your host file will allow you to get the download packages.

myhouse1.x10.com for the myhouse  server
myhouse2.x10.com for the myhouse server
myhouse3.x10.com for the myhouse server

gateway.x10.com for AHP mail server

Since I don't have all the plug-ins there may be more associated with AHP.
Using Wireshark one could route out others like those used for the Vangard software. ;)
X10 turned me into a Software programmer.
A warning label should have been added ;)

One method to get the ActiveHome Pro installation files to work again is to 'redirect' the HOSTS file (on my computer in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc).  Add the following line:

          63.211.210.21        software.x10.com

This redirects from the old software.x10.com site to the new site at x10-usa.
