Hi all,
just been trying to install weather radio web server, reading the sensor data from a remote raspberry...
When I try to do sudo ./bin/wr_rrd_create.py from usr/share/weatherradio, I get the following error:
Updating data from "Weather Radio"@192.168.0.29:7624 FAILED!........if I try it with the -v option, as I have seen on here, I get the following:
Updating data from "Weather Radio"@192.168.0.29:7624
Updating data from "Weather Radio"@192.168.0.29:7624 FAILED!
I can see the indi server on the raspberry at 192.168.0.29 using ekos and indigui....
Running Zorin (ubuntu 18.04 32 bit) on a HP terminal...python 2.7, changed the .py files to use 2.7, as was getting rrdtool errors...have tried various flavours of linux...all the same...
any help would be great, guess I'm missing something...
cheers

Hi Stephane,
I can connect to the weather radio on my remote raspberry. I can use either ekos or indigui. I want to install the web server, but everytime I try to sudo ./bin/wr_rrd_create.py, it tells me that  Updating data from "Weather Radio"@192.168.0.29:7624 FAILED!. I am able to see the interface on localhost/weatherradio, as well as from another PC. I just seems impossible to connect to the indi server from the apache web server;

is the webserver running on the remote raspberry?
The wr_config.py should be, I believe

# INDI server delivering weather data
INDISERVER="localhost"
INDIPORT="7624"

I have the indiserver running on the raspberry, and the web server running on the HP terminal. Indiserver address 192.168.0.29, so the wr_config.py is:
INDISERVER="192.168.0.29"
INDIPORT="7624"
I have no problem accessing the sensor data from any machine using either Ekos or indigui......
