Re: Port Numbers ...

From Cumulus MX Announcements It is now possible to override the default port for the websocket server, by passing a -wsport parameter to the program, e.g.: sudo mono CumulusMX.exe -wsport 8888 This is useful if port 8002 is already in use, or you want to run multiple instances of MX on the same ma...

Re: Port Numbers ...

Many thanks. Having looked again at the article I see. Apologies.

As an after thought, do I also need to do this with port 8002 as well using the same syntax ?

Thanks

Re: Port Numbers ...

Brilliant ... thanks for the heads up. However, as a novice to Pi, what would be the correct syntax to use to invoke Cumulus with the -port and -wsport syntax ? Many thanks (I'm asking this as I'd like to run the Pi as a back to back against the mini pc to see if it's as good as or better and I don'...

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

Cheers ;) Just one quick question ... when I have MX installed on the Pi, is there a way to change the port settings that CumulusMX will use ?? I ask this as I've already got it running on a stand alone mini pc using ports 8998 and 8002 ... I think. I know it's theoretically possible to forward thes...

Re: Accessing my C MX weather via WAN/internet

Interesting thread. Not sure if it's relevant or even helpful ... but I have my IPCamera running on the same dedicated PC that serves my Cumulus web site. I have the Cumulus web site setup on the PC and it's accessible from the web using a DDNS service (NO-IP). Now on the same PC, I'm running the fr...

Greetings, I've been having several instances of the dreaded USB Lockup with my Fineoffset station of late ... why all of a sudden I do not know. However as a consequence of this, and the restarts, the cumulative rainfall figure now shows as being grossly in excess of the actual amount. How do I adj...

Replacement for the standard rain gauge ... ???

Greetings one and all, Since relocating to Spain our WS3083 (Fineoffset) the station has been operating reasonably well ... except for the standard rain gauge. It works OK when the rain is fairly constant and heavy, but this Spring has been relatively dry, with what can only be best termed as light ...

Re: Fine Tuning of the weather forecast within MX ?????

OK, seems like a plan.
If however, this doesn't produce the desired results and I follow your comment and, "get your forecast from somewhere else" ... how would that be incorporated into the MX web page ??
Thanks
