I’ve downloaded and installed openhap-app on an iPad Air. After starting the app, I have turned off the demo mode and pushed save. After the restart I get the notification, that the app is “discovering openHAB”. After that I get the notification that the app “Connecting to the the discovered URL”. After about 30 seconds I get an error “ERROR, the request timed out”. I try to connect via the internal network.
I didn’t try to connect to MyopenHab, because I haven’t an account for this service.
iPad Air Software version 12.4.6.
OpenHAB app version 2.3.1
Openhab 2.5.6-2 running on
OS Linux Mint 19.3 Mate including latest updates
Firewall is on. Port 8080 is open
OS Linux Mint runs on Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E130 RAM 8Gb
Router Fritzbox 7490
I have taken a look at the community of openHAB under Apps & Service IOS App but couldn’t find anything for this problem.
The openHAB logfile doesn’t give me any information. The logfile of Linux Mint also doesn’t give me any information.
Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong or is it just not possible to remote connect via the internal network to openHAB when running on Linx OS?
I know that Linux isn’t very friendly for connections from outside besides SSH. I would think, that that problem should have been solved by the app.
Any suggestions or possible solutions are welcome.
