Dashboard seems to be useless


#1

Pi 3 Model B
Rasbian 8(debian)

So, I installed everything according to your directions. I open up the dashboard, either on the web or on Android. It sees my Pi. It may get a couple of readings, i.e. CPU, Network, etc. Then, when I want to do something, say add a relay, I get connection errors. When I want to change a GPU pin from input to output, I get “Error sending command.” I have restarted my Pi no less than 15 times so far. I am absolutely getting frustrated here. I don’t know if this issue is stated in another thread because there are way too many threads to read.


#2

When you are getting the error messages do you see the Pi as online on the left side of the dashboard? Also, what is the rating of your power supply?


#3

Not sure if this indicates if it is online or not.


#4

Yes, lit up red indicates that it is online. It will be grey if it is offline. Are you connecting with wireless or wired?


#5

I have both wireless and wired hooked up. The wired is on a different router.
And my power supply is 5v 2A


#6

Try with only the wired hooked up for now, does that change anything?


#7

No, it does not change anything.

Now it says that I am offline after I had to shut down to look at the power supply then reboot.

I have even tried port forwarding for port 22. Not working.


#8

The agent actually doesn’t use port 22, it’s 8181. Have a look here if you are having offline problems now.


#9

So, I’ve gone through all of that. Fixed a couple of issues. Still having problems. I get connected on the Android app, then it just disconnects. I get an error that says “Can not connect to remote device.” It seems to be a very unstable connection. Note: I have connected with my phone using both WiFi and mobile data. On the web dashboard, I can’t ever seem to send any commands. I can see changes I made through the Android app, when it is connected, but I cannot make any changes on the web dashboard.


#10

Ok, so when I run the sudo netstat -natp | grep -i established command a couple of times within a few minutes, this is what I get. It seems that my connection is bouncing between a couple of your servers. Is this on my end? If so, is there a way to prevent it since this seems to aid in dropping my connection?


#11

I can tell you that the Android client will connect locally if the Pi is available and on the same WAP, so test that out and see if you are getting a local connection. Other than that, that’s above what I can troubleshoot. @bestes @rsiegel any suggestions?


#12

Sorry for the late response here. As far as the Android app, in the past we’ve seen that it can occasionally get into a bad state which only seems to be resolved by Force Stop > clear App data/cache in the Android application manager. I hope this is not re-occuring but might be worth a shot here.
