[solved] Trouble connecting remotely


I am a relatively new openHAB user and having trouble connecting to my installation remotely thru the my.openHAB iPhone app (ver. 1.7.1). The local connection works fine. When connecting remotely I receive the message:

Request Failed. Internal Server Error (500)

If I look in openhab.log I see the following from the time I am attempting to connect

2016-01-12 21:17:26.372 [WARN ] [e.jetty.servlet.ServletHandler] - /openhab.app
org.openhab.ui.webapp.render.RenderException: Sitemap ‘thegoldsmiths/rest/sitemaps’ could not be found

I am running openHAB 1.7.1 with the 1.8.0 version of the myopenhab package. However, I had the same issue before I updated the myopenhab package.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

It looks like your remote URL isn’t correct. You only need set it to https://my.openhab.org, leaving off the sitemap stuff.

Thanks! That does work. I was confused by the URL it showed when I logged in thru the web.
