URL calling failure to export parameters in Telldus Live

Post by IzzyWizzy » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

Hi,

I'm trying to call a web site from Telldus Live with the following URL http://192.168.1.10:8090/index.html?UpArrow
but anything after the ? does not appear in eventghost however if I call it from any browser the UpArrow text does get sent
to eventghost. Any ideas why and what I can do to work around the problem?

Regards,
Keith

What about port 8090?

When you are calling from any browser, while it is working, are you then connected to the same local network? When calling from Live, first of all the firewall protecting the Live site/sites has to allow you to make external calls using that port. That is the first possible blocker. If this happens to be allowed, you will also have to open the same port in your own firewall (normally in your router) and make a port re-direct to the computer running EventGhost.

PS I assume you do not really use the ip 192.168.1.10 in your call because that will not work (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network). Those ip-ranges are reserved private networks and never routed over internet. Instead you need to use ip-addresses that are routed, best is to use a free Dynamic DNS Service like No-IP

Ok, I've just realised I can't do what I want as Telldus uses POST not GET, so the values don't get sent like they do do with a GET request.

You can simply add parameters in the URL, like: http://mysite.com/telldus.php?unit=button1&action=on

Then retrieve the data on your website with HTTP GET method.
