Synology + + no ping allowed -> cannot add my iphone via network binding

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Synology DS918
    • OS: DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 6
    • Java Runtime Environment: 8.0.161
    • openHAB version: 2.4
  • Issue of the topic:
    In Paper UI I click on

then nothing happens.

I tried to add my IPhone manually then it can discover it, why can’t it autodiscover it? I assume that the openhab system has not the correct access rights. Has anyone an answer to that? Or is there some setting in the which prevents the openhab process to discover items on the local network?

This is how I added the iphone manually:

I copied and pasted the ip from the homenetwork page. And I made sure that the IPhone always receives the same ip adress by clicking the checkbox in the settings page.

Access Rights for User openhab

It only works when manually adding the device why?

If I remember correctly there is a bug in OH 2.4 in the network binding that prevents auto discovery from finding any devices.

So this has nothing to do with your setup I assume.

This is the related issue

So you can try OH 2.5.M1 which should include this fix
