I have installed the Globalcache - 2.2.0 binding and I can’t get my device to go online. I have confirmed the IP address of the dcevice and tried setting up both a manual thing and doing it though PaperUI. Both results show the device is “initializing” and it never goes online.
It will not auto discoverthe device either. The firmware on the iTach Flex is Firmware version: 710-2000-19. I received that by going to it’s web browser so I know it’s online and the correct IP address.
Here is what I am getting from the debug. I know the IP address is correct because I can access with web browser with it. Also this is a Wifi unit not a IP unit.
10:58:54.279 [DEBUG] [.GlobalCacheHandler$ConnectionManager] - Connecting to command port for thing itachFlex:000C8A76E888 at IP 10.10.10.184
10:58:55.782 [DEBUG] [.GlobalCacheHandler$ConnectionManager] - Failed to get socket on command port for thing itachFlex:000C8A76E888 at 10.10.10.184
10:58:55.784 [DEBUG] [.GlobalCacheHandler$ConnectionManager] - Connection check failed for thing itachFlex:000C8A76E888 at IP 10.10.10.184
So this is a pretty basic communication failure. The binding is saying it can’t open a socket to the device at 10.10.10.184.
There’s a 1.5 second timeout when trying to open the socket. Can you think of any reason why it might take longer than 1.5 seconds to make the connection?
Is it possible that there would be something (e.g. firewall) blocking a connection on port 4998? That might explain why you can connect with a browser on port 80, but the binding can’t connect to the device.
I can connect from my PC using port 4998 to 10.10.10.184 with the iTest program from GlobalCache just fine. Very strange, I’m ordering another Wifi unit, an IR blaster and another serial cable. I will see if I can get any of those working and let you know.
I have my Active Cable set to Serial and my binding set to Serial. When I telnet in to port 4998 and I send a command PF to turn my receiver OFF I get an “ERR 001” When I telnet into 4999, I send the same command and it turns off with no problems.
