I've been playing with OpenRemote designer, and got a Fibaro FSG211 switch switching on and off by using my iPhone; running OpenRemote via Ubuntu and using Aeon Labs Z-stick in the Serial API mode.

Locally, everything works as expected.

However, when using it via 3G a strange error appears. The panel opens, but I cannot use it. It takes on and about 1 minute before the error is displayed : Can't download image from Server, there is no network.

When I hit "OK" the button works as expected ; turning the FSG211 on and off!error.PNG!

Are you using port forwarding or a VPN ?

Hi Eric

Port forwarding, thanks

Within another LAN the app works fine, no delay. Seems like it is only occurring when using 3G

hi Guys,

happens via VPN when connected via 3G too.

What I recognized:
When I open VPN (PPTP), I can see the server going green in settings so everything seems to be fine. But when I try to switch something I get exactly the error message Richard describes....

but when I then wait some seconds and when I can switch from screen to screen in my menu then the switching works fine too.

No idea why.

kind regards

There are some weird checks left over in the code of the current iOS consoles, where it will not load images if the connection is over cellular and not Wifi. I suppose this was made to conserve bandwidth.

This will be changed when the next version of the console is ready (no date for that).

I am currently having this issue. Any updates?

No, sorry. Haven't worked on iOS console for a while.
