Connecting genmon to NodeLink

Recommended Posts

I just got genmon up and running and it is working to a web page via port 8000.  When I try to configure the port in NodeLink it cannot be changed from 9082.  Is that the correct port or do I need to change it on the genmon end to 9082?  The Main display in NodeLInk shows an endless stream of "GenMon Socket Error: Connection refused. [genmon1]".  Is there further configuration on the genmon side to enable NodeLink to communicate?  Any help appreciated thanks.

NodeLink serves it's webpages on port 8090 unless you change it.

Agreed!  I wasn't sure what port NodeLink was using for communication.  I confirmed 9082 in my config file.  Any ideas for troubleshooting why the connection is refused? is there other software besides genmon that needs to be running to make the connection?

Thanks io_guy.

Thanks io_guy,

I'll reach out to the creator of genmon.  I do have trouble connecting DSC to NodeLink.  I'm using DSCLink for now since that works fine. Yet NodeLink can connect to my RainMachine without a problem so it seems like the networking is ok.

I contacted the developer of genmon, jgyates.  He had me try the following to test the communication via port 9082.  This is my setup:

On Pi-1 I have NodeLink (and DSCLink) running

On Pi-2 I have genmon running

I loaded ClientInterface.py on Pi-1.  This is a program provided by jgyates that allows access to genmon via port 9082.  I ran this application and was able to access genmon and have it return my generator status.  So the network connection between Pi-1 and Pi-2 seems to be ok.

I started NodeLink via a putty terminal connection and went back to the NodeLink setup and added my generator back in.  As soon as I added the generator I could see in the Putty window NodeLink trying to establish a connection to your default IP 127.x.x.x I forget what it is exactly.  Maybe that's normal operation.  I changed the IP and restarted NodeLink.  It connected, I have no idea what is different as I have rebooted many times before.

There is an error reported by ISY now that persists through multiple reboots, see the screen shot.  How do I resolve this?

Getting closer!  Thanks.

Mono Updated, see screen shots.  genmon is still working, DSC still a problem.

The ISY error is intermittent, restarting the Pi will clear the error most times, see the screen shots with and without error.

Any other thoughts on DSC?  I tried the raw connection you had suggested in the other thread, not sure what the result should have been.  If all else fails DSCLink still works like a champ.

Thanks
