Two questions.

I know, not a very good title but I had two unrelated questions.

1. I have a keypadlinc and manually linked one of the secondary buttons to a togglelinc. I noticed when I press the secondary keypadlinc button and the the light comes on, but in the isy console it shows its still off. So should I unlink this and just set it up as a program with a If secondary button is on, then light is on? I tried to do this on top of what I manually linked and didn't work, but I guess I need to get rid of that manual link.

 

2. Ok trying to enable internet access. I can't port forward 443 because it is already being forwarded to my WHS. What do I do now? I have Upnp enabled in my wrt600n linksys, but that doesn't seem to work, at least it didn't when I was configuring WHS- which is why I already have 443 forwarded.

 

Thanks to anyone for their time

Can your wrt600n port translate/forward another port to 443? Use a port such as port 40443 forwarded to the ISY IP at 443. Then any external access to the ISY would be made using port 40443.

 

Some routers can do this and others can't. On a Linksys the function might be located on the UPnP setting page, but this isn't the same as UPnP. It is just where Linksys likes to place the control for it.

Hello me23,

 

d_l already provided you with great info on question #2.

 

As far as question #1, ISY is not privy to anything you do manually. As such, would you be kind enough to redo the same thing within ISY?

 

With kind regards,

Michel

While you COULD do this, what you really want to do is create a SCENE in your ISY. This duplicates what you already did (but no need to manually link).

 

I would:

- unlink your 2 devices manually

- create a scene

- drop your devices into the scene as CONTROLLERS

Ok, no problem with the scene stuff. Finally getting that.

However, still a problem with the router. Under my single port forwarding page, it has the following columns: external port, internal port, protocol (tcp, udp, both), to ip address, enabled

 

Now I said external port was 40443, put 443 as the internal, tcp selected, the ip address of the isy, and then enabled.

It says that the internal port already exists (which is referring to 443 forwarding to my whs server).

 

Any ideas how to proceed?[/img]

Bah! I was afraid of that possibility with your Linksys router. It will only allow one forward to operate on 443 and a port translation/forward is the same as a simple forward, but that was the easiest way to try this.

 

So assuming you have a 2.6.x version on your ISY, then you have to change the https over SSL port on it: http://www.universal-devices.com/mwiki/ ... o_Your_ISY instead.

Hello 23,

 

Dave was correct. Simply use the same port (eg. 40443) for both the external and internal port, and then telnet to ISY and configure it to use that port for its https port (but not for its http port). If you need assistance configuring ISY, don't hesitate to contact us.

 

Regardless of the internal port used, the external port specified in the port forward rule (if not 443) will need to be appended to the URL when you access ISY from the Internet: https://your.exernal.ip.address:portnumber.

Thanks guys. This seemed to have worked. I successfully changed my port and able to get to my lighting page by entering in my ip address or my local isy ip address with the new port number. I haven't tried it outside of my local network yet, although I did try with my LG Dare but couldn't get it to connect, just timed out.

Anyway, thanks again.

me23,

 

Thanks so very much for the update. In case of mobile phones, there's also another variable which is the Webserver timeout (CWT in the shell). You might want to increase it if you still experience connectivity issues with your LG Dare.

 

With kind regards,

Michel
