Re: External IP Plugin for Indigo v5

Works perfectly, though the filename says v1.07 but the plugin identifies itself as v1.06!

Thanks!

Computer says no.

I thought I updated the preference file, I'll update that and make a public release...

Off the top of my head? Not really. I'll have to investigate.

Re: External IP Plugin for Indigo v5

I’m in the middle of creating a brand new Indigo DB for a new house. I just went to install this plugin and configure it, but as soon as i do i get this error:

Code: Select all
  External IP Address Plugin      Manual External IP Address Update Requested

I downloaded from the previous link you posted that had it listed as v1.07, but when i install it i get v1.06. I tried downloading from your list of plugins here but just get a 404 error when i try to download the 1.07 (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/241415/Indigo% ... 20v107.zip). I thought i’d had this running fully on my old DB but can’t find it, so tried setting it up again but same issue. Just for reference i’m running Indigo 6.0.2, the DB is brand new (not a modification of the demo house) and just to make sure I wasn’t going crazy I installed it on a completely different machine in a different house, and setup a brand new DB with just this one plugin/device but still got the same problem. Any ideas?

If I remember correctly, whatsmyip now makes you sign up for an account to use the service. I modified the plug in to use my own account, and all is good.

Snip.

That's new. I haven't looked into this in a while, so it doesn't surprise me that whatismyip.com would or might do something like this.

I will look resolving this.

My I'll look into using Google's own IP reflector instead. It would be less likely to break in this manner.

Re: External IP Plugin for Indigo v5

put the following code in a scheduled action ( 5 minutes interval should be fine).
It puts the current public IP number into the variable "my_IP_address" (has to be created first)

Code: Select all
set ipNumber to do shell script "curl ip.appspot.com" 
tell application "IndigoServer"
      set value of variable "my_IP_address" to ipNumber 
end tell

Yes, KW123, that's correct. That will work. But it doesn't replace the External IP Plugin.

In addition, it will also update your Dynamic DNS provider to help ensure that your system is available for external IP access, & email you on IP address changes.

I have a test version that is ready for examination. If anyone wants to test it, please email me at Benjamin AT schollnick.net.

The new version follows RFC 3489: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3489.txt, and will use the following servers to detect your IP address.

* "stun.ekiga.net",
* 'stunserver.org',
* 'stun.ideasip.com',
* 'stun.softjoys.com',
* 'stun.voipbuster.com',

In addition, it can classify what type of NAT you are using, and what Network port your NAT is bound to. Please note, it does not use this information at this time, nor does it store this information.

Switching to RFC 3489 makes that information available, but I don't see a practical use for it, nor do I want to rewrite the plugin at this time.

Re: External IP Plugin for Indigo v5

cool idea for a plugin.

Im using noip.com for my dynamic DNS. Still interested in testers for other services besides DynDns?

SmartThings refugee, so happy to be on Indigo. 10.13.6 on an i5 MBP w/Harmony Hub, Hue, DomoPad, Dynamic URL, Device Extensions, HomeKit Bridge, MatplotLib, Plex, uniFAP, Wunderground, Nanoleaf, LED Simple Effects, Airfoil Pro, Grafana.

If your interested, let me know at Benjamin AT schollnick DOT net....

I'm not doing much indigo programming right now, but if there is a request, I'll look into it.
