org.openhab.binding.anel-1.11.0-SNAPSHOT.jar not using anel.cfg


Running Openhabian stable on Raspberry PI 3

I uninstalled the standard Anal binding as this one still has the Anel firmware 6.1 issue.

and installed : org.openhab.binding.anel-1.11.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

openhab> bundle:list

205 | Active | 80 | | openHAB Anel Binding

vi /srv/openhab2-conf/services/anel.cfg

IP or network address (optional but recommended, defaults to ‘net-control’)

UDP receive port (optional, defaults to 77)


UDP send port (optional, defaults to 75)


User name (optional, defaults to ‘user7’)


/etc/hosts has : anel1

But getting ton’s of errors like this :

[ERROR] [ng.anel.internal.AnelConnectorThread] - Error occured when sending UDP data to Anel device: ‘wer da?’

java.lang.Exception: Could not resolve host: net-control

=> looks like the anel.cfg file isn’t used and that the default hostname “net-control” is used …

Did add host net-control in /etc/hosts pointing to the same ip and this works => so think the new binding is not using anel.cfg and using default config settings and using net-control ?

[ItemStateChangedEvent ] - anelTemperature changed from 22.9 to 23.1
[ItemStateChangedEvent ] - f8 changed from ON to OFF

But I need to be able to use the config file anel.cfg as i’m planning to use 5 Anel devices.

Any help ?

Please use code fences for code or cfg files (three backticks before and after)

What’s the output of

openhab> config:list "("


Reinstalled everything from scratch version 2.2.0-SNAPSHOT and now everything is ok.
thx !


Im looking for a solution for my anel relais and openhab. I installed openhab 2.2.0 stable. And on my anel relais im working with 6.2.
After a long time of changing configs and testing with raspberry’s i finally find another solution and want to try bring everything online again. Only my anel relais wont come up.

Is the version of the anel not compatible with openhab? Or do somebody has the same config?
Openhab 2.2.0 stable
Anel Hut 6.2

I’ve already try to enable the binding in the web interface. And after that i try to enable it to get the jar file to the directory. Nothing will work.

Kind regards, Thetmar.
