Hi there,

I am trying to work with energyplus FMU for a simple simulation.

When I run the simulation, an exception severe error arises:

 Severe   ExternalInterface: Did not find file "socket.cfg".
  ~~~    This file needs to be in same directory as in.idf.
  ~~~    Check the documentation for the ExternalInterface.
 Fatal   Error in ExternalInterface: Check EnergyPlus *.err file.

I would appreciate it if you could kindly let me know how I can address the challenge

Thank you very much in advance for your time and assistance

Sincerely, Behnam

Hard to say given how little information you gave us as to how you're trying to connect the FMU. That socket.cfg is a file that has a port number in it, and it's for interfacing with the BCTVB/Ptolemy I think (and I think BCTVB creates it for you)
