Ok that's because you need to setup port forwarding still. You need to make sure your wifi module gets a static dhcp reservation from your router and that you are forwarding port 2000 to the wifi module IP on port 2000.

Actually there's an issue with the way I did the high ato. I'll post a fix later for you.

Ok I changed the ddns to troylong45 and edited the "you can go to blah blah blah " stuff at the end of the code. Does my portal automatically find my reefangel .
So all I need to do now is figure out how to change port forwarding on my router like u mentioned I'll probably have to call my Internet provider it's there router/modem

The high ato seems to work for the skimmer. Now keep this in mind though I haven't connected anything to the ra yet just to be safe lol

It works but the relay status is currently tied directly to the float switch which could be bad too because skimmer goes off water level rises float switch turns skimmer back on, etc. you wanted an override so you would manually have to trigger it back on. If your using it in the collection cup then wouldn't really be a problem.

Well right now just going to use it to turn off skimmer like if the return stops for whatever reason it won't keep filling the cup or if power outage the skimmer won't Come on till the water level falls to proper level. I think I'm OK without a override for now.

Displaying data from: Webbanner database

and if i try to switch things of view internal memory still says
Only available with valid wifi address. Please make sure your controller is sending data to the Portal web server.


i added this to end of code for the ip stuff does all this seem right
Code: Select all
        // This should always be the last line
        ReefAngel.Portal( "troylong45" );
        ReefAngel.DDNS( "reef" ); // Your DDNS is troylong45-reef.myreefangel.com
        ReefAngel.ShowInterface();

Local ip needs to point to ip of wifi module. That message means your forwarding isnt yet working. The basis for the lights depends immensely on the memory variables you've set. Without the wifi forwarding happening we won't be able to validate that.

The local ip is the one of the ra. So forwarding isn't set in my router correctly yet then huh. Here's what I did start to finish.
I used the wifi tool to configure the wife add on just like the wifi manual said, added the code to the ra with the Androino schetch uploader , and that was it then the router stuff. There isn't anything here in the forum I setup right. Like profile or something for the portal. From all this info I gave u still points to properly setting router port forwarding right ?
