[SOLVED] 3G Help

Postby kwahler » Wed Dec 30, 2009 5:57 pm

Help. Setup up dyndns, static ip address, router port forward, zwave commander settings, etc.

I connect fine over wireless in house. 3G connection error.

Only thing I can think of is at dyndns, do you put the static ip setup on machine or the current ip?

Thank you! Great app.

OK so your DynDNS should actually be updated automatically and points to your router on the public internet.

Your router then routes ALL traffic on port 6004 to your PC with a static IP Address on your network's Port 6004.

Here is a great diagram of what exactly is happening...

Thanks for the quick reply. I need a little clarification---Port 6004 is open and I am able to see the router by with DynDns address. I setup port forwarding on the router to 6004---should it be 6003.

Sorry for my ignorance---I didn't see any reference to 6003 in the 3G instructions post.

Sorry that was a typo. X10 Commander uses 6003 and Zwave Commander uses 6004 but that diagram is the same idea for both.

Thank you. Seems to be working. Great app! How confident are you in Controlthink these days? I don't want to recommend to friends if they won't continue to support. Thanks again.

ControlThink seems quite odd. So the guy who started the company and built it up Chris Walker leaves immediately after Leviton buys ControlThink, which I thought was really odd. Since ControlTHink is owned by a large company like Leviton it seems they have actually hired some more employees and put more resources on ContolThink but I still think their developement cycle is way too slow.

There was 1 year in between SDK releases. They have not had a new firmware released for the USB Thinkstick in about two years.

Sometimes their devs are active on the forums and other times they are completely silent. So I am not sure what to think. I have put my eggs in their basket so I hope they stay around a long time!!!
