  • IP Change causes a connection error - is this a bug?


    Just discovered why this plugin hasnt been connecting correctly. When running the discovery for the hub the plugin always finds the hub but when I enable the hub I get this error:
    The Connection to Hub with ID 5f108f0d94627fb5e056080b4d1d5af09c883e29 failed with message: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond
    So as it turns out my DHCP server changed the hub's IP address. Should the plugin be able to recognize and deal with changing IP address - especially since discovery clearly sees the hub?
    For now I fixed it by deleting and recreating the hub and devices.

    You could just make a static DHCP assignment for the IP on the hub. Problem solved.

      I would recommend a static DHCP. Beside that you can adjust the auto discovery (in the general settings) and it will fix it on the next discovery cycle.
