Get Pin failure plugin 2.18

Wondering if there is a fix for Pin Request Failure. I am using Sierra and plugin version 2.18
When "get pin" is selected, messages shows "Pin Failure Request"

Re: Get Pin failure plugin 2.18

There is a new plugin that is in beta; it requires High Sierra or later. You can't get a PIN because Ecobee has moved to TLS 1.2 only and the version of OpenSSL that is in Sierra and lower does not support TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2. Starting with High Sierra, Apple remove OpenSSL in favor of LibreSSL that supports TLS 1.2. There is nothing anyone can do to resolve your issue. You will either need to upgrade to High Sierra or Mojave to use the new plugin or stay on Sierra and forgo using the plugin.

I don't believe he considers it beta any more, though I might be wrong. The Plugin Store entry for the plugin does call out the requirement for High Sierra, though we're looking at how to add other plugin dependencies (beyond just Indigo version) to the store such that it's called out a bit more clearly.

Re: Get Pin failure plugin 2.18

Sierra support from Apple ends this September.

Extended support ends in September 2019


More and more sites will be requiring TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.2 only and as those sites make the transition, various plugins will cease to work.

The only way around it would be to put in a proxy server that intercepts HTTP/HTTPS and acts as a full proxy. It will make the outbound connection via TLS 1.2 but can support TLS 1.0 for the inbound (from the Mac). It will be a Man In The Middle (MITM) proxy. You will need to configure python to accept the self-signed cert and to trust it.

The easier solution, migrate to High Sierra or later.

Re: Get Pin failure plugin 2.18

Not a plugin problem. There's a warning in the Indigo log on plugin startup if it's an unsupported version of MacOS. I suppose I could just immediately shut down the plugin, but that seems pretty rude.
