Subject: CA Gateway DOUBLE Conversion Bug
From: <dominic.oram@stfc.ac.uk>

Hi All,

 

I have encountered a bug in CA Gateway when attempting to write to a DBR_DOUBLE PV.

 

The gateway appears to be converting characters from hex before writing to the specified PV.

 

This means that sending ff to a PV through a gateway sets the PV to 255 whilst sending ff directly to the same PV causes a request failed due to incorrect type.

 

I am running with the following versions:

gateway 2_0_4_0

epics base 3.14.12.4

windows x64 DLL build

 

Can anyone else confirm this issue?

 

Thanks,

Dominic
