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......

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;

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 Jasem,
thanks for you reply. Curl works. I seem to have some strange problem. I've written the simplest of scripts to test my setup...... when I run the script from the command-line, the mount initiates, and starts running. I can then run ekos / kstars, the driver connecting on its own. I can also run the scheduler if the script is run from command-line. If I run the script from within the scheduler, it doesn't run. I have run the chmod +x to make it executable.....
This is the script:

#! /bin/bash

echo "starting scope"
curl 192.168.0.11:80/START
echo "scope initialised"
I'm running Fedora 33 astro
cheers

Hi,
I've spent the last few months getting the obsy to work. I finally got Stephan's Odroid roof driver to work with my DIY roof- many thanks. I've got a Vixen SXW mount, and would like to create a startup script for the obsy.
I would know if it is possible to use 'http://192.168.0.9:80/START' in a bash script, or does anyone has any ideas on how to do this. At the moment, I have to change the state of the mount manually.
I know that this isn't a bash course, but just thought that an idea may come out. I've managed to get my gpios working to turn on and off power etc....
Here wishing one and all a happy new year (in advance) and may 2021 be better stargazing for all.
From rainy Brittany, France,
Terry

Terry created a new topic ' Astropi hotspot....' in the forum. 2 years ago

Hi Folks,
just wondering if this is possible, as I cannot seem to do it... I've run the Astropi3 scripts on my Odroid c2. What I want is to have my odroid connected to the network via CPL, accessed via vnc from the 'office', and also have the opportunity to connect to the odroid, with wifi tablet via hotspot and vnc. I can connect to the hotspot, but cannot vnc into the odroid from the tablet.

1. odroid is in observatory, connected to the house network via CPL (house walls 1m granite....excellent wifi shield)
2. hotspot enabled on odroid
3. odroid ip 192.168.x.x, hotspot 10.41.x.x
4. I have internet access through hotspot, but vnc cannot connect to it

If anyone has any ideas......
cheers
Terry
