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?
Yesterday we had reports that some of the buttons in the ventilation panel were not working. Turns out that some of them have changed the control type to lable after the server update. The template is my old vallox template that i made few years back, all the servers that are running on older version have it still set to toggle button. So it must have been the server update that changed it.
Good news is that i havent had any crashes with the latest betas,
Bad news is that i have to change the buttons control type for about 200+ apartments now. And adding a column or copying and pasting a node to it still takes up to a minute, so the server CPU load goes up to 30-50%. Making panels with a lot of nodes takes more time.
Just a FYI whoever is messing with the beta updates, that some changes may have happened to your configuration.
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" />
I'm owner of JIGSAW device without possibility to get public IP address. While looking for workarounds I have found the ngrok service which offers tunnels accessible via URL links. As long as I understand JIGSAW is simply raspberry pi device with custom linux os running under the hood. I wonder if I could login to the device using the ssh to access the root account for purpose of installation and setup of ngrok service. Will you be able to share those? Is ssh access enabled?
