    OK, I Wiresharked it and:
    I see the HTTP query go out to find.homeseer.com/findhomeseer/default.aspx (209.239.115.225)
    The query contains a cookie with my HS3 license
    The response includes the table header, but there's no link/data returned.

    Exactly how does find.homeseer.com determine/return the IP address/Computer name of my HS3 system? Something in my LAN setup seems to be blocking those requests.

    Z

    BTW, our LAN has a domain, but the HS3 server is NOT part of the domain, albeit on the same LAN.

    JSON is on (Enable control using JSON), and local login without password as well.

    How are you actually finding the HS3 system with find? Does the HS3 server phone home or is it located locally on the LAN?

    The app was able to find the test RaspPI I had running HS3, so I suspect something local here is blocking access to the primary HS3 server (Did turn off firewall to test as well)

    MyHS works as well without any issues.

    Thanks,
    Z

    UPDATE:
    Another clue is that it (find.homeseer.com) does work on HS3 server, so probably a Server or LAN network issue. Would still like to know the mechanism so I can try to look for it.

    If so, in HS, make sure JSON is enabled in setup and the setting "no password required for local subnet" is enabled.

    Makes sense but it fails the Search there as well. I can ping as well as access HS3 on the port I've assigned it to (both internally, externally and through MyHS), but perhaps they use a different port to Search. I disabled the firewall, etc, so pretty sure it's not being blocked.
    When I have time, I'll crank up wireshark and see if I can figure out what's occurring.

    Thanks,

When i launch Z-Tool+ on my iPhone all i get is the application screen with no information displayed except for the applications text.
    What could i be missing as getting this to work would be of great help.

    Same here, no system discovered.
    What is the mechanism used for the app to find the local HS3 server ?

    Just loaded this on my new Windows Phone.....very nice....loads and connects extremely quickly. One option I would like to see added please is Restart Interface. Would be useful whenever a connectivity test returns multiple failures and appears to be 'locked up'. The Restart usually sorts it out.

    I carried out a homeseer repair installation, and everything is functioning fine afterwards my z-tool issues are resolved and no errors anymore on startup of z-tool

    regards

    I could already login locally without a problem, but enabling JSON once I found out where to do that made it work.

    Thanks!

    Side note for bug

    My tool now appears to be working. (iOS, HS3Pro .194, zwave .25). It is worth noting that I did experience a bug where the app simply crashed every time I opened it. It happened after I had updated HS3Pro to .194, and *before* I had update the zwave plugin to .25 (I was at .22 at the time). It might be worth figuring out what was causing the crash so it can make a slightly more graceful and informative exit.

    Once I updated to zwave .25, it worked fine....

    regards,

    Paul

    I am on HS 3.194 and was on zwave .23..installed Z-Tool+ and got first a message needing to be on version 194 or higher, then got an Error: GetInterfacesList. Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: j. Path ", line 0 position 0.

    I upgraded the zwave to .25 and the 194 error message disappeared but I still get the GetInterfacesList error. If I press OK, then add/remove/abort fields are greyed out.

    I do have logins from local subnets disabled and I do run HS at a high numbered port..and as noted above I can't seem to specify a port number in case that's the problem. The app does see my server though and puts its name and local ip number on the top line.

    thoughts?
