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?
After update of Jigsaw into 4.8.5 I have troubles with blinds managed throw KNX. Aditionally is not possible to upgrade linux and knx interface. Both show need to upgrade and looks they are updating when run the process but still requesting to be updated.
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.
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...
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 have a Jigsaw server. The weather data is no longer being provided - all data is zero. This server has been operating correctly for a number of years and the weather data was displayed yesterday. No config changes have been made. The Jigsaw has been restarted. The DNS is correctly resolved by 18.104.22.168 and nslookup from the SSH shell returns the correct IP addresses for www.comfortclick.com and the weather data source, The location code is correct and I have re-checked this. It would appear that the Comfort Click bridge server / api is returning all zeroes. The behaviour is the same on my Windows one user test server.
Can you please investigate and resolve?
I noticed after installing the latest bOS Server, that any port and any protocol is enabled in the Windows firewall, creating a serious safety breach into the system. Especially if the server is connected to the internet or the home network is full of iot devices that are easily compromised. This is a serious security issue. Also looking at the amount of hack or intrusion attempts that happen every day on bOS, as parts of it are connected to the internet. A compromised bOS server gives the attacker full access to the rest of the network with these firewall settings. And it is a real risk if you consider the poor TLS protocols that where still in use before bOS 4.9.0.
I also noticed that multiple Firewall entries are created and probably not cleaned after upgrading to a newer version of bOS.
What are the minimum ports/protocols needed by bOS to function properly?
