@anton Hi anton - the program is running well - thanks again for your help on that. I have googled how to get a python script in terminal to autostart, but I am overwhelmed by what looks like outdated information, and coding language I'm not super familiar with. Can you give me the step by step information to get that last piece set up? I did manage quite easily to set up a static IP address, so that's working as well. It's just the autostart part that I haven't got down yet. Thanks! Diane
