I am having problems but since I belong to the target market of this cute little education device a can not describe the nature of it in the subject field, less make any good descriptions of fault finding of the kind "I tried sudo x but then y happened". I have to revert into plain English and hope that some friendly person out there can help med (I have posted on a few forums more connected to the applications I try to run).
I wanted to use my Pi for home automation. Having discovered MySensors and the possibility to build sensors of my own with Arduino. I am quite experienced with programming Arduino and designed and programmed walking robots on my own.
So I decide to try some sort of controllers on my Pi to control my sensor network and go on with downloads. What I have tried with zero success is MyController, PiDome and Domoticz. All have one thing in common. Logging in is typically done by writing in the form ipnumber:port, as example localhost:8080 or 127.0.0.1:8080 sometimes the IP number I get when typing localhost -I. This were the fun stops. It doesn't work!
I get the message "Connection refused". I have no clue why. I have the latest version of the Raspbian OS (using NOOBS since I am one). I reinstalled it a few times (doing a new download of NOOBS and copying to the SD card) so I was sure that the installation was fresh. Browsing and working with other applications work. The computer itself seems OK.
So what can be the problem?
I have spent one full Sunday and two evenings swearing over my Pi and my family is missing me.
