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.
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 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 would need to limit the Users to send messages to everyone(User still should be able to send message to the admin, but not to other users/apartments) thru the bOS app internal events messaging.
We have hotel project where the clients have started to misuse the feature by spamming jokes and memes in there - to everyone ofc, now the Hotel is asking me to turn it off but there is no option for that.
Got a brand new Jigsaw from our local distributor on 31 July, but only today I got the chance to connect it to my network to start working on the costumer project.
Unfortunately it doesn't work. It boots up, it shows up on the device discovery, saying it has IP address 192.168.1.11, but it doesn't ping the device, neither connects to it. A port scan doesn't show any open ports available.
Already done a hard reset 3 times, network reset also 3 times, and my network is ok.
Please advice, because the distributor is on vacation until 21st August, and I have to start the project this week.
