I am using openHABian on a Raspi 2B model.
Hue emulation in combination with Alexa on an Echo Dot let me switch several wall plugs until maybe September. Then it stopped working. I read about updates to the echo dots and the upcoming update to openHAB v2.5 and decided to “sit it out”.
Now I updated my openHABian to v2.5 a couple of weeks age and still the hue emulation does not work.
Now it is time to change that.
Reading through the Documentation on the “Add-ons-Integration-HueEmultaion” page (https://www.openhab.org/addons/integrations/hueemulation/) shows that the problem is addressed under the section “Troubleshooting”.
Now there are 3 options given and my question is:
Which option is to be prefered for the openHABian setup and me being a linux “copy & paste” user, not really understanding all of what I am doing there.
For me the easiest way seems to be the
port forward your openHAB installation to port 80, (
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 8080)
method (did I mention I am a copy & paste user ).
I suppose I just paste it into the Raspi command line (probably with sudo up front) and it is all set!?
I am willing to try, but as I am not familiar with what I would be doing, the question is, if it would not work out for me, how do I undo this? (I would love a “copy & paste” answer )
Thanks for help on this.
Great work and thanks a lot to the “makers/maintainers/supporter” of openHAB - you are doing a fantastic job!!!
