    Hello everyone,

    I had this working fine and I'm not exactly sure what happened (must be something I tried to install but did not keep track of) I'm unable to connect via my old method (novaproxy.py gives "novacomd not running") or the new Novaterm (failed to connect to novacomd).

    I dont see anything in my services listed as novacomd and when I try to run novacomd.exe I get the msg "Trying to start novacom-service" but nothing happens.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

    Try this:

    This guide helped make my Novacom start. I have Vista, so it's not just for Windows 7.

    Please post your results.

    OK that did it! I did get a command line pop up window that said:

    Control Service failed
    installing novacomd service (or something like this)

    but now when I type RUN --> NOVATERM it connects just fine. Awesome thank you!

    To setup putty to SSH into your Pre, you will need to setup SSH as described here:

    Next steps - WebOS Internals

    Next you need to setup networking into your Pre using USB as described here:

    USBnet Setup - WebOS Internals

    With these steps, you no longer need to use Novaterm and can use putty instead.

    Hope this helps... plee3
