Hi all. Rather new to OH here but am having some issues getting it up and running as I’d like. I used the Openhabian SD card to install, gets up and running and am able to start configuring, but i can only access it via a wired connection (laptop/iPad do not see it) which I think is due to it not being setup for wifi? I have gone through the config 3 times now, sshing in, going to the openhab conf and pointing it to my wifi but each time after i restart the pi, it never seems to come back online. I cant hit it via a wired or wifi connection. I’ve waited hours and tried again, nope its gone. I have to wipe the pi and start it back over and re-setup from scratch each time. Am I missing something?
Can’t tell unless you provide a log of what’s going on. See debug guide. What do you mean by “going to the openhab conf and pointing it” ?
‘sudo openhabian-conf’ and using the menu option within for setting up wifi. The last step then prompts me to restart the pi, which i did, and then its unreachable. It does not appear anymore in my network, and I cant SSH to it.
If your server is accessible on its wired IP you should not switch to WiFi.
Fix your local routing instead, Wi-Fi devices will then be able to access your RPi if you do that right.
How to correctly set up your network (W)LAN is out of scope for this forum, sorry. G**gle is your friend there.
Hi - i have a half setup RPI4 with Openhabian. I didnt setup the system to have wifi in the initial step.
Given i am a windows user (limited linux experience etc)
How would I set it up at this point? is there a post specificially to set this up in Openhab 3 (havent found something obivous yet)
If you are in a position where you have no LAN or WIFI access, you can configure the WIFI by placing a config file in the root directory of the SD card. Shut down the RPI, and remove the SD card. Put the card into your PC/Laptop, and create a file called ‘wpa_supplicant.conf’ in the ‘BOOT’ directory. Put the following in the file:
Put the card back into the Pi, and boot; you should then find your device on your network (Check by looking at the DHCP allocation page of your router).
openhabian-config option 36
hi Markus, thanks- to put it in terms i undertand - you mean to access via SSH and set it there correct?
For future me people, what I did was:
read from here openHABian | openHAB to gain access to the config tool
Cant be done from within the web interface of Open hab.
