No problem! Sorry we're open source and don't have a full comprehensive documentation to give you. Thanks for your stick-to-it-iveness.

If you load up the portal page and look near the top, under the banners and to the right of the Reef Angel logo, you'll see "Reef Angel wifi address: ". This is the address you need to put into the app on your phone. Leave off the :2000 and just make sure your app has port set to 2000.

This should get you working. Be aware that your outside IP address can change if your modem looses power. There's a way around this, but I need to look it up.

I did this and also setup DDNS from the wizard but must have done something wrong because I still can't access my controller from outside my home with the app? I can however with the portal???

Are you able to control from the portal? update memory settings?

There are two modes that the portal has, one is read-only where it receives the data sent from your controller every 5 minutes and then where you update things and it sends back to your RA. It's easy to think the portal is working but yet only one mode is...

If both are working, then set your iphone app to use the IP address or DDNS name in the settings and make sure you're not using the internal IP (192.x.x.x)

When it is in the mode where it is actually seeing the controller it will say Displaying data from: Reef Angel Controller (live) in the upper right corner.

If the controller is down or the portal is not getting information it will say Displaying data from: Webanner (or something like that).

not sure what happened but it must be working now because i logged in on my phone app using DDNS and it reads Displaying data from: Reef Angel Controller (live) in the upper right corner in the portal.

thanks again everyone
