[SOLVED] VS Code openhab connection

Hello I got always the error on Startup ov VS Code

[Error - 11:25:45] Connection to server is erroring. Shutting down server.
[Error - 11:25:46] Connection to server is erroring. Shutting down server.

Here is my user/workspace setting:

    "openhab.host": "smarthome.fritz.box",
    "window.zoomLevel": 0

my openhab is reachable through


any ideas??

I would guess that the language server is erroring.

could you deactivate the openhab.lspEnabled setting and test if it stoll occurs?

No error message now occurs

But if I type “rule” and press “ctrl + space” this message popsup

Error while connecting to openHAB REST API. connect EHOSTUNREACH

But the IP must be

How about using the IP for the host then? That would avoid potential issues with host name resolving.

I am completeley new to OpenHAB and am trying to work through some tutorials. Because I am so new, I don’t know where or how to access the “user/workspace settings”.

As I go through tutorials, things don’t seam to be updating as I expect. I don’t know if the errors i’m getting when I amend files in VS are just my mistakes or are because of the “Shutting down server” error. Sometimes I spot errors but other times I can’t see what I have done.

I would be grateful if someone could explain to a complete incompitant how I change the user/workspace settings so that I can rule this out.

I’m getting more grey hairs by the day.
