Wouldn't it be nice to have an alternative to port forwarding?
I remembered this today, when I had to hard reset my ISP router, and totally forgot to reopen the ports to bOS and found myself with no access on mobile network. So no bOS, no Alexa commands to bOS etc.
In fact, there are many services that are using "P2P" services, using mechanisms to get rid of the port forwarding stuff.
The reality is that we are often hard resetting the ISP routers. Sometimes by ourselves, other times because of automatic firmware updates from the ISP. And many times we forget the port forwarding stuff.
What do you think?
For now I control my harmony hub via comfortclick with a workaround.
I do a http command to a raspberry pi running a http server with node.js and it calls harmonyHubControl which can access the harmony hub using activtiy and command ids.
This is great because you can teach the hub new IR commands.
So I can not only start activities but also control IR relais and sockets (cheap stuff).
I just read that harmony has released (don't know when) and API for the hub. Any plans to integrate this as a device in comfortclick?
This would make things much easier and I add a lot of value to your product.
I had to do a "server repair" on Grinder.
Ended up with a dead black box : couldn't connect either to bOS, nor to Windows (remotely).
I had to find a screen and a keyboard, to hook them up to the Grinder, and then I understood the issue : Windows was requesting the password to be changed, and it just blocked everything.
So, issue fixed. But I though it was important to write a post about it :
- so that if you face the same problem you can easily fix it
- so that the ComfortClick people can make the black box a real black box you never have to worry about, as this was sold to me when I bought reluctantly a Windows box...
Hello! I'm trying to use the RPC Server in my Jigsaw device, but I can't find the way. I try to log into the linux configuracion of Jigsaw, but have no user and password. How can I activate the RPC Server? Thank you!!
I've created an info status button + SMS notification task for when the connection of the KNX BUS fails.
But what I would like to do, would be to lock the KNX controls, while there's no BUS connection, because IMHO the controls shouldn't be available if there's no connection. I know that there's an error message if you press them, but I would like to take it further.
I've searched everything but couldn't find any way to do that, is it possible?
Also, this could useful to dynamically disabled a certain button or whatever we would like, let's say disabled an Arm button if something's already armed, etc etc...
Have the following values in BOSService.exe.config that have worked before upgrade to 4.4.0.
After upgrade port is not started.
<add key="RPCServiceUri" value="http://localhost:81/" />
<add key="EnableRPC" value="True" />
Editing some frames, suddenly the server started to answer very slow. In the end the configurator showed me an "out of memory" message. I was able to start again the configurator but the server was still moving very slow. Even the commands to different equipment were sent with delays. I've restarted the server and now seems to be OK.
It first starts showing me different messages like the one below and at the end crashes showing the "out of memory" message. I've reported the same in a previous post ("out of memory bug") with some more screenshots.
By the way, are there any limitation in the number of displays defined on a bOS Colibri server? Does anybody have some limitation list for this (number of devices, number of programs used, etc...).
This morning I was able to make some changes in my project, but I have received Out of memory ERROR message. I made backup and have done reload in configurator. After all I was logged out from configurator and wasn't able to connect back. I did service monitor restart, but it didn't helped, then I did full server reload, but still can't connect. Can you tell me how to solve this problem? It is mine the biggest project and all apartments just crashed.
All the data about server is correct, User is correct and Password also correct.
Waiting to yours soonest answer.
Hi, I have a server running version 4.4.4 at custom ports 82 and 8443 and I want to upgrade this server to the new version of bOS but last time I did that I ran into problems with the custom ports. Is there any official way to change the ports?
