From version 188.8.131.52 a new more deterministic way is used to generate automatic client id’s. VSCP daemon internal events will use id’s from the high part of the client id that will always be the same.
Client id’s for drivers and other configuration parts that before was generated from the order the item was loaded also now work that way If the client id part of a GUID is zero (byte 12/13). If however it is not AND the client id is not already used in the system the VSCP daemon will use the set client id for the item.
This means that drivers with set GUID’s will always have the same interface GUID being more deterministic. tcp/op connections, websocket connections rest i/f connections will be assigned client id’s on the go as before.
It is recommended to use the Ethernet/IP GUID series as a basis for interfaces.
