Sure. You can run your own server, and configure the module to use that (not api.openvehicles.com).
You will, of course, need to ensure you have setup your server correctly, and it is reachable over the public internet. You can use the ovms_shell script to test the server.
In the OVMS shell, I can see the 'server' command, but I can't find examples on how to elaborate on that to test a server connection. I was originally trying to do this from the Server V2/V3 console pages without any luck. Any chance you could provide an example on how this can be done from the shell? Thanks again for your time!
Server v2/v3 automatically publish metric updates and notifications.
1. Check the log on server v2/v3 start.
2. Configure vehicle type "Empty", then trigger a central status change manually using "metric set", e.g. "metric set v.e.on yes".
3. Check the logs for the metric update.
