Help connect MCA-C3 through the RS232 port GC-100... What and where to register? 've tried a lot of options in the Designer Professional and never found a solution.

I don't know the GC-100, but do you have the RS232 connection up and running?
Can you open a socket to the GC-100 and send commands which are given to the RS232 device?

Please use this howto.

russound.ip should be set to the ip address of your gc-100-12 and russound.port should be 4999 or 5000 depending on whether you connect to the first or second rs232 port respectively.

Unfortunately, the equipment is on site and I can't quickly to try. With regard to installations IP and port - so I did, but nothing worked.
Could this be due to the fact that Vera 3 also is configured to manage the MAC 3, as well as GC-100 supports only one connection in my attempts were in vain?
In the near future will test and I will write on the results.

The MCA-C3 only has one RS232 port. Either the Vera is attached or the GC-100.
If the Vera is controlling the C3 through IP it is using the RIO protocol. This can go parallel with the RS232 and should not cause issues.

I meant that in Vera3 used паралльно plugin Russound RNet, who also uses the rs232 port is configured through the GC-100. It couldn't verify the operability of control through OpenRemote. 'll check it out soon.

it says that vera is connected using a usb2serial cable.
which plugin are you using? please provide a link.

I use this plugin only through the port rs232 GC-100

That means the GC-100 rs232 connection to MCA-C3 is working dine.
Question is, if the GC-100 allows multiple connections at the same time?
Otherwise you have to stop Vera plugin before trying OpenRemote.
