Where can we download version 1.1? I have firmware 2.2.1 and have an "Unknown: No command output" on the checks. Thanks.

i'm trying to check a Quantumm DXI6701 with FW 2.2.1 - when running from CLI
./ -h

got that message :

./ 803: [: Illegal number:
./ 803: [: Illegal number:

Thanx for your help
Owner's reply

Please try the script version 1.1 for the DXi version 2.2x, because there are some changes in commandline tool.
