Hi unfortunately I have the same problem… and I can’t fix it… then we will see if I will have problems with addon open web net…

This is one of the very few times one will see me ask for a screen shot. Please show what you are seeing. There are no errors in the logs and not enough information in the post to begin to help.

Also, you should consider updating your Debian. Stretch reached end of life in July 2020, no more updates even for severe security problems.

@Fuuzz and @Riccardo1979, also please use code fences when posting logs or code.

code goes here

Hi, I used code fences in my post and here is the browser screenshot:

It simply says “connection timed out”.
I am using Stretch because that’s the image the SBC producer made available on their website and is compatible for flashing the board Emmc card, so at the moment I can’t bypass that factor.

You should look to see if there is an Armbian version supported for that hardware.

All I can say at this point is that there is something wrong with your network then that is blocking the access. Maybe the host based firewall on the SBC is blocking the connection.

There are no errors in openHAB’s log. openHAB says it’s up and listening on port 8080. If you can’t access the web page the problem lies outside of openHAB.

Hi, after thorough checks it seems like it really was something off with the firewall.
With nmap from other servers the ports was open, but the firewall was broken on the debian image (and also on the Ubuntu 18 and 16 images) and it was not allowing to set rules.
After installing Raspbian is working perfectly.
Thank you!
