OpenLuup IP Address



  • Hi
    I have OpenLuup running on an Android box, via Debian.
    Every time i reboot the device, when I restart OpenLuup I get a new IP. Is there a way to force OpenLuup to sart on a specific IP address?



  • That’s not, AFAIK, an openLuup issue, but something to do with the system environment. openLuup uses the IP
    address which the system has assigned.



  • The easiest way to fix this is to go into your home router and make a reservation for the IP for the Android box so that it never expires/changes. Another way would be to set it up as a fixed IP and not DHCP in the router. Exactly how to do this differs slightly on the type of router you have, but generally it is quite easy.

  • Ok will look into from the debian end, as ip is already fixed . the android ip is 192.168.1.XX, but the openluup ip to see in browser is 217.3.79.1-255.

    I need to fix this issue before i can use OpenLuup fully



  • That is very strange, but has nothing to do with openLuup as far as I know. I think you must look for what is causing this in your Debian or network.

    Looks like you have something in your network that is redirecting your local network through the internet since 217.3.79.1 is not a private but public ip-address

    This. It's a Deutsche Telecom IP range. @Elcid what are you putting into your browser to access OpenLuup?

    What happens if you try on 192.168.1.xx?

  • @CatmanV2 I take it all back your a genius, I'm a moron, never thought to try.
    I just thought that this was the only address from start up window

    openLuup downloaded, installed, and running...
    visit http://172.21.126.76:3480 to start using the system

    192.168.1.xx, localhost, and 127.0.0.1 all work. Slaps head

  • My LART will be put back on the shelf until needed again 🙂

    Not quite sure what you’re trying to achieve here?

    If you’re planning on using the ZWay plugin, then only ZWave.me and a UZB will do, AFAIK.



  • @akbooer , Good to know cheers
    I am attempting to see if i can run this all on Debian running on an Android box with Z-wave. via Zway plugin. Debian is all new to me so I have a learning curve to ascend. Really looking at all option now as Ezlo/Vera may not be my flavour, time will tell.

    I have been reading alot and once i get a dongle i will look at loading the dependant libraries on the Debian.

    Be warned i may have a few more questions.



  • I'm confused by 'Debian running on an Android box...'
    Bit like saying Windows running on an OSX box. Unless you're virtualising it, which of course you might, just can't see why (or actually how given the little I know about Android and the rather more I know about Debian)

    Debian was always my Go-to OS back in the late 90s and early 2000, until I moved to OS X in 2006. I still run three Debian variants around the house on Pis

  • I have no Pi's. I am using Andronix to run Debian on a Android box.
    running OpenLuup 5 plugins and 70 devices
    6 Mb, cpu 0.6% min 2.4 % max, been running now since you poited out my stupidity



  • Nice! I would say about ten times less use of resources, both CPU and memory, than Vera!

    ...although, running on that box, you'd have about 100x that of Vera anyway?



  • Box is a 2gb / 16gb running android 6 1.5MHz quad core Rockchip



  • Wow. OK, that's 'different'

    C



  • I suppose it is a set top box. Which is not too different from an SBC except the firmware probably forces you to boot from android. Maybe it supports running Debian which means that you are not running Android anymore?



  • Looks like it's running OpenLuup on Debian on Android. Andronix appears to be a VM hypervisor type thing.

  • No still running android and dabien can still use all android system apps etc, Andronix installs debian and you can have a ui or termux window. It also restart after reboot and reloads OpenLuup. No issues at present, As said will be playing to see if i can insall zway.
